    Default Feeding spit ups, would lactose free formula help

    Just started caring for a 14week old last night who has been in hospital since the 16th having been a shaken baby. Anyway the hospital had her on Nan Gold H.A which they said she was taking well. She does drink it well but has massive spit ups almost straight away (the nurses did say she was chucky). Would a gentler formula help? Lactose free? Her poos are a bit yellowy but not huge. Haven't cared for a bub for over 2yrs so was wondering whats out there now. I have to get formula today because the supply they gave me will run out soon.

    I've just started using infacol on my spewy baby and it's made the world of difference. She's mix fed, breast and formula.

    Eta: she is 12 weeks old.

    Hi firstly thank goodness for carers like you. Dont think LF would change the chuckyness as my son is on it and he still chucks. He does have reflux though. If it doesnt bother dont think there isntoo much tonworry about

    Our DD had horrible spews every time she ate. She was exclusively breastfed until around 11 months but had the occasional bottle.
    We put her on Novalac Reflux. It worked and she instantly started putting on weight, seemed happier and much more settled.

    WOO, your work as a carer is incredible. Very proud of people like you in this community.

    Maybe a AR formula or adding a thickener might be better?

    I second the novolac. Most AR formulas are thick in the bottle so the baby has to suck harder and gets more wind and you may find you swap chucking for gas pains.

    This formula thickens in the tummy so they drink it as normal.

    Also I want to thank you for what you do and carers like you 😀
