I do think you need at least a week to determine if a formula is working, but is be trying Bellamy's. And many paeds don't recommend soy products for children under six months old.
As I said though, I'm sure there are details we don't know about and I a sure your paed is doing what they think is best. But it is ok trust your instincts too.

Argh... I so don't know what to do... I'm thinking I'll give it another 24 hours and then see if things change. She had a massive screaming fit after one bottle today...like it was refluxing (she's on Zantac) and burning her throat. I will ask about bellamys. Isn't that based on cows milk too?
There isn't too much else I haven't mentioned to be honest. It's so hard to know what's right. I miss breast feeding! It was so much easier.

I know it is sooo stressful!!
Yes Bellamy's is cows milk based but its also very gentle. So if he doesn't have a CMPI but has a sensitive tummy (like mine) then it could work well.

DS doesn't have a condition like a your LO but we switched his formula on him and he needed about a week to adjust, so maybe just hang in there for a little bit, though it must be stressful when you are already worried about weight gain
Good luck xx

Thank you. It's worth asking the question perhaps to her dietician. He is excellent too and works with my paed but won't go against his medical advice.

Thanks albert01... I am going to stick it out for a bit... If I do her weekly weight on Friday and it's not good I will not be happy. Prior to the change on added calories regular formula (with blood/mucous in her poop!) she was gaining 200g on average a week... And was almost drinking her required volume. I hope she just gets used to it.
