My 4 week old baby boy would not latch at the hospital so i have just been pumping my breast milk, but since im only pumping i cant get enough milk for him now. I have bought formula; Good Start, which the nurses recommended but when he takes that he almost like gags on it all the time and then projectile pukes it all up it seems, should i just keep being persistent and keep giving it to him or should i try a different formula? If anyone has had this problem, what formula did you use and how did they take it? I just dont want him to be spitting so much up.

Its the formula, my daughter was the same on Gerber Good Start and her pediatrician suggested Enfamli A.R its a bit thicker so he will do fine on it. It has some rice starch in it to help.
