Question about my daughter and milk based formula?

My daughter is now 8 months old, and up until Dec. 27th she was fed Parents Choice Immune Support formula (milk based, prebiotics added) She did great with this until Christmas Eve, when she started getting HORRIBLE diahrreah. We decided to take her off the formula for a day and just give her baby food,oatmeal and pedialyte, which ended the diahrreah. So she was switched to a soy formula which helped but also made her spit up every time she ate. So, we were told to put her on a lactose free milk based formula. She doesnt get diahrreah, but she gets horrible gas pains and severe constipation. I dont think shes allergic to milk protein because she doesnt get rashes or have any trouble breathing or anything, but I really think she cannot digest milk properly. Has anyone elses baby been through this and what did you have to do? Her doctor told us to decide for ourselves which formula is better for her, so im just seeking advice. Thanks!
Also… is it true that soy formula messes up baby’s reproductive system or anything like that?

  1. If she was doing fine on a formula for awhile it’s doubtful that the PC formula was the cause for diarrhea. Are you sure she just wasn’t ill? Usually babies show bad reactions in the first 2-3 weeks after being on a formula, not months after. I’d put her back on the PC brand if she was doing well with that and see if anything else happens.

  2. How do you know she didn’t just get a stomach virus in December? It could be coincidence it stopped when you gave her food and pedialyte. It seems weird an allergy would just appear out of the blue. I would go back to her old formula and see if it was just a fluke.

  3. yes sounds like an allergy talk to her doctor and ask for a presption for the formula *NuTrAmiGiEn* or alimentum cuz wic will COVER it FREE
