When my son was 6 weeks old I had to put him on formula, which was S26. Within 4 days he had horrendous problems woth his bowels and the health nurse said to get NAN lactose intollerant. That worked wonders but as soon as he was on it he started to throw up after each bottle, and he would throw up more and more each day. Once his bowels were back to normal the health nurse suggested to put him on NAN comfort 1 to see how he went. His bowel movements still stayed normal but he still kept throwing up. He is now on purees and started to eat more textured meals as we thought that would help but it hasn’t made a difference. We have tried everything for reflux like keeping him upright, making sure hes burped properly, adding farex to thicken his formula but nothing has worked. It now doesn’t matter how long ago he had a bottle/meal he will still throw up, even if hes just about to have another meal. The health nurse said it can happen and because he is growing at a rapid rate and extremely happy then everything is fine. But I’m a first time mum and still stressing about it. Sorry this is so long but anyone else who has had the same or similar problems, what helped? Or did it just go away on it’s own?
