Patient discussion about confidence

Q. I am here with the confidence that you may help! I am here with the confidence that you may help! I have started supplementing two formula bottles a day for my 5 1/2 months old son.Since then he has been congested, sleeping more, spitting up more, and very constipated. Could these be signs of milk allergies? Would I need to try a soy based formula?

A. Nothing to worry much about your child. Those could definitely be a sign of just a simple formula intolerance or a milk allergy. Either way, it likely would be a good idea to not give him a milk based formula any longer. Since some infants tend to have a problem with milk based formulas, they can also have a problem with soy based formulas, one good option may be to just breastfeed more and not to supplement with formula at all. If stopping the supplements is not an option for you right now, then soy formula should be another good thing to try. Many Pediatricians recommend changing to a soy formula to treat infants who are slow-moving. Other common treatments can include offering some extra water or diluted apple/prune juice once or twice a day. If you have recently started your baby on solids, especially rice cereal that could also be a cause of his problems. Sometimes giving an oat-meal or barley cereal, which have fiber, can help constipated infants who are eating a rice cereal.
