Formula recommendations for constant spit ups

Hi Mommies,

I appreciate if you can provide me recommendations on which formula is good for frequent spit ups.

While i understand spit ups are normal for babies, mine seem to be spitting up every burp, every feed and even if just lying down, I caught my baby spitting out the milk on purpose.

My LO is 3 months and we tried Similac at first but her spit up tend to be thicker in consistency. So we switched to Enfamil Gentlease 2 weeks ago upon recommendation from a friend. Not only does she spit up more (but more clearer consistency), her stool are really runny at times and her spit ups smells so bad. Btw, Enfamil Gentlease formula just smells so bad overall & hard to dissolve also.

Shes now drinking 150ml every 3-4hrs in the day and 5-6hours at night.

PD doesnt seem concern about the spit ups as long as its not volatile vomit. But it concerns me cause not only does she spits up on me randomly when i baby carry her, she spits up randomly when shes not even full (like hours after feeding).

I appreciate any sort of response!

Thanks!

Hi dear mummy, this is normal in some babies. As long as they gain weight monthly, it's not of great concern. Not to stress yourself n baby too much. Baby will grow in the faith of God.

Hi!

Just checked my notification and saw this. My baby is now almost 10 months and doesn’t spit up at all.

After Enfamil, I switched to Nan Optipro and imo the best formula for my baby. Minimal spit up, so easy to dissolve and much cheaper than similac.


Apart from that, I switched her bottle from Avent to Comotomo and it also helped in reducing the spit up. So you might wanna consider switching bottles also.

The position of drinking milk plays a part as well. Try to position her almost 45 degrees when shes talking her bottle.

Bottomline, some babies just need more time for their tummies to mature/get stronger. Now my baby can even toss and turn while drinking her milk compared to a few months back when she would spit out at the slightest moment after milk.

Parenting is about trial and error. Talk to the PD if you’re concerned that the spit up is too much.
