I dont think you are doing anything wrong. One of my babies was like that all she wanted to do was cry but now that we got her formula changed again she does not cry unless hungry or sleepy. Maybe you can ask his dr to check him over to make sure everything is ok

There wasn't anything wrong with amelia and shw was like that for about 3 weeks....Then got comfortable.....I got to where she would stay down for abotu 20-30 mins before she would cry...And that was very good for me....I was very happy with her. Now we are great...We make a great pair....If we didnt' it probibly would scare me out of another. Lol

Nancy, nestle is the worst!! It was the only formula that made trey gassy and spit up. I had 2 docs tell me not to use it.

Switch him to something else!

How's he feeling??

really I always heard its the best milk....I guess I will really need to change...How about enfamil?

Hes doing better however that stupid yeast infection in his mouth is still there despite the liquid the Dr. From the clsc gave me... His mouth smells and I think its causing him some discomfort and isnt drinking as much......But I will look inot changing his formula..

Foxy, yeah our medical is covered 100% the only thing we pay for are for meds and even at that the gov covers a good portion of it..

we were using enfamil and finn was throwing up his entire bottle pretty much every time he ate. Then we switched to generic enfamil (like the kind you get at walmart or sam's club, we get ours at bj's) and he hasn't thrown up since and it's *so* much cheaper. They can't be too different but something about the actual enfamil didn't agree with him.

I had my daughter on every different kind of formula there was. Nothing worked. Then, it dawned on me, maybe I should just quit changing her formula!

That didn't work either. But I guess I learned to live with it. She cried in the evenings between 4-9pm. Every night for months.

Maybe he is going through a growing spurt. Now that my daughter is older, she tells me her bones hurt and she sometimes cries about it. This comes during the same general time she is eating more.

Just a thought. Good luck with whatever you try and whatever works for you!
