Our 6 week old little girl started not eating her formula

Customer Question

Our 6 week old little girl started not eating her formula (aptil comfort) well, less than she was eating before. She seemed in discomfort after the first 70 ml, started stretching, twisting her body, clenching fists etc, pushing as was pooing. Ee went to see a doctor and was told to use a hypoallergenic formula, which we tried for a few days and she didnt like the taste of. Then we started using another hypoallergenic formula with a different taste, however her intake has now dropped to 30 ml per feed and she is doing the same thing during feeding. She also seems to vomit from the hypoallergenic formula, even 1-2 hours after the feed. She is eating very little and i dont know what formula to gibe her now or what to do. She also has rushes on her chest.

Hi, she could be having acid reflux causing these symptoms. Please give any formula mixed with maalox syrup or get a prescription for zantac for same.

Please weigh her weekly and record gains.
