    Default 4.5 month old Can anyone help?

    Little Miss is 4.5 months old and was exclusively BF until Tuesday when I went out and DH gave her a bottle of EBM and a bottle of goats milk formula. Then on Thursday she had 2 150ml bottles of goats milk formula. She guzzled all the bottles and was very content after them. Hubby says it's like having a new baby.
    My problem is she is still feeding from me but vomiting so much after her feeds. I am constantly changing her and me and she is very unsettled.
    I've just given in now and given her a bottle after feeding her and then vomiting LOTS and screaming. She has guzzled this bottle from me.
    I had put her excessive vomiting and general unsettledness down to her as she sleeps fine and is happy when I am cuddling her.

    Any suggestions as I'm not ready to wean her at all.

    Thanks. I thought it could be a possibility so might try dairy as I don't eat a lot of wheat but have milk in my coffee.
    I don't see a health nurse or have a good doctor so will try the ABA today.

    I've just rang the ABA and talked to a lovely lady, first time caller in 8 years of parenting and 4 babies. This last one wants to make sure she is the last.

    Going to cut dairy out of my diet and she recommended 2 weeks to see if there is a difference.

    I am so torn because I want BF to work but now know that the goats milk formula makes her happy.

    Caffiene really badly affected one of my sons, so no coffee or choc etc, and wow I really noticed the difference. Good luck, I hope you get to the bottom of it.

    I feel your pain, I am a chocoholic... If you are testing multiple things, perhaps concentrate on one group of food at a time, otherwise it's really hard to figure out which one is the culprit.
