Jadon is bottlefed and MY

I changed formulas last week and now he's not feeding very well. He'll drink half, stop o be burped and then I'll lie him back down again to eat and he'll start balling...???

I'll sit him up and he'll stop instantly.

SO I figured it was the formula and then changed to a diferent one again, but he's still doing it and I have NO IDEA what's wrong with him

and ideas??

well.....all I can think of is put Jadon back on the original formula. Was there a reason you switched? Austin was on Good Start....I tried switching him to the next level formula that had extra nutriets for babies over a certain age...but the flavor & texture was different, and he refused it. Maybe get some of the original formula, and mix it with some of the new....that way Jadon will get a chance to get used to it. That's what I did for Austin when I introduced him w/ milk. I started w/ 2 ounces of milk & 4 ounces of formula. I increased the milk & decreased the formula slowly...and the switch over completely went very well. I HTH. Good luck, and let us know what happens! ~Amy

Well he's a bit better today I've stopped burping him in the middle :o I'm not sure how this will affect him but he's a lot happier :)

The reason why I change formulas was because I couldn't afford it.

You never switch you babies formula w/ out consulting the babies doctor.

You might get him one when he is allergic to milk, or one with too much iron.

You said you "switched because you couldn't afford it".

I remember all to well how expensive formula was and still is.

Are you able to get some assistance to help you to buy the formula?

Hope I was some help.
