About a week ago I posted a question about changing formulas for spit up reasons rather than for reflux reasons. LO was never in pain or uncomfortable, but would spit up all.day.long. I felt so badly for her, which is why I contemplated a new formula. LO was on Similac Advance, the ready to feed kind, and I saw that Similac made a special formula for Spit-Up. After a long internal debate I phoned my pediatricians office, who encouraged me to give it a try and to check in with any concerns.
We are five days in and I have to tell you it has been FANTASTIC! She spits up about 10% of the amount she used to and, as an added bonus, she started sleeping through the night almost immediately. The formula has some added rice starch so it has her a little bit constipated, but her body seems to be adjusting there as well.
I thought I would share my story in case there were other moms out there with LO's like mine and were afraid to give switching formulas a try. Obviously everything should be discussed with your pediatrician but I am so glad I took the chance!

What a great success story. My BFF went through trouble with her LO getting super constipated from high iron in his formula and had great success once she found the right one for him.
