Hello, I am frustrated when it comes to giving my baby formula. My son is 11 weeks today and is mostly breastfeed. I introduced him to formula at 7 weeks when I had to return to work. From since then I have had a rollercoaster experience in finding the right formula. I try to pump so that he would have some breastmilk while at the center, however, I fall short and that is where the formula comes in for my growing baby. At the begininning my son experienced constipation, belly aches, spit ups and would not defecate for days. The doctor suggested giving him a soy based formula, and it seemed to be working, he has been pooping in his diaper,however, he is contantly vomiting. It is usually a clear slim with milk, or deposites of milk that looks like it has not been digested yet. His farts are super stink! I don't know what to do. His skin began breaking out since I introduced him to formula and a friend told me that might be from the formula that is breaking him out. So far I have tried three different formulas and bought a new one to try today. Please help me!!!
