My LO is currently on enfamil newborn, but he has major gas pains. His pedi told us today that any formula we want to try would be nutritionally sound. What are some suggestions for something that would be more gentle for him? It's not a lactose intolerance that's causing him pain. He is 1 month.

My son was on nutramagen for the longest time and that helped, he is on gerber good start gentle now. Both are amazing.

He may be swallowing too much air while drinking from his bottle. I've had the same problem in the past.

I would try the good start formula, my baby loves it. I breast feed but if I have to leave him with his dad to do some running around or have a break that's the formula we use. Any other formula he won't take so I believe it's closer to breast milk then the rest.

My baby did the same and her pedi put her on Soy newborn Enfamil CONCENTRATED. I also bought Dr Brown bottles and used Gas drops and it's done wonders for her.

My lo had the same problem with enfimal so I changed him Similac and he hasn't had any stomach problems since

My daughter was the same way. We tried the gentle formula and it didn't work. So we switched her to soy formula. It worked great.

He is using MAM anti-colic bottles, and has drops for some temporary relief.

I heard that the Gerber Soothe (purple can) was the best. You also might want to try the Gerber Soothe Colic drops (hard to find, but they're online). I use those with my daughter & she too is not colic but has lots of gas issues.

My daughter started on Enfamil newborn and had really bad gas as well. Her pedi told us to switch to Enfamil gentlease since its very similar, still has milk protein but broken down a bit more so its easier to digest. My LO made a seamless transition and it worked wonders!!

I gave my lo similac at first because that's what hospital started him on but then switched to enfamil infant I never used newborn but I also tried enfamil soy and found out it's very heavy... Heads up with soy his poop was hard...

I started giving my LO Enfamil Gentlese to supplement breastfeeding. It's worked great for us so far. He's had less gas and overall fussiness

Similac (the isomil kind they have) worked wonders with my second child: my first used normal similac and my current baby is on enfamil (hospital switched and is the kind they use now)

Could it be a milk protein allergy?

Enfamil gentlese worked for my son. Similac allimentum for my daughter. That is costly. And of course gas drop!

I bought him some Gentlease tonight, and he seems to like it. Hopefully his belly isn't as upset with this... We'll definitely keep the gas drops and gripe water in hand tho... Thank you ladies for all your input!! 😄
