Intro and formula switching question

Hey ladies! My DS was born on 4/20 and is a little fire cracker. I pumped for a month, but then switched to formula due to colicky behavior and gas. We tried Enfamil Gentlease and Enfamil Newborn and they gave him gas (I think/he could have just been colicky). At the pedi's recommendation, we put him on Alimentum and he has been doing fine. He also has bad reflux and is on prevacid. He eats 3-3.5 oz every 2-3 hours. I am wondering if it is okay to switch to something like Similac discomfort/Similac Sensitive or should I just leave him on Alimentum. I feel like he should be eating more and going longer in between feeds. He has been waking up at night again and drinking a whole bottle then up again 2 hours later. I know I'm grasping at straws here, I just don't know if what I'm doing is right.

  • My LO eats 4 oz about every 2 - 3 hours and is up at least 3 times a night. He wakes up at 11, 2, and 5. I would talk to your ped before switching.
