    Formula Switch (HELP!)

    singemommyof3kids posted:
    My baby is 7 weeks old and since she was 2 weeks she has been on Similac Alimentum. This past Thursday we had to switch to the Enfamil brand - Nutramigen. Before her stools were thick and creamy and now they are thin and seedy(not diarrhea). Also, after a feeding she will spit up. Sometimes quite a bit, sometimes a little. Is this going on b/c her tummy's getting used to the formula switch? I don't get it b/c it's the same KIND of formula, just a different brand. Just want to make sure she's just adjusting to it or if I should call the doc. Also, how long does it normally take for a baby's belly to get used to a formula change? TIA
