switching formulas
katheryn26 posted:
ok so i have a question or need some advice.... My son is now 7 weeks old and we had to switch his formula from the enfamil premium infant to prosobe soy formula.. doctor suggested because he was consistantly throwing up. Well I did that and I know that usually with changes he would become constipated right? Well he was but now he has bowel movements but not like normal... he poops out like rocks.... and thats it.. it is hard for him to have a bowel movement still so it this normal or do I need to change formula again... I am not so sure what to do!!!!!

I would switch formulas. Hes only 7 weeks, so his poop should still be runny not firm. I use earths best organic soy formula...maybe that would be better?? If your very worried, just call your dr. That always makes me feel better

Hi katheryn - it would be worth checking in with your pediatrician on the formula type and how it is being prepared before making any further changes. By working together, I bet you can smooth things out relatively quickly.
