DS has been breastfed for 6months with an occasional 100ml-150ml bottle at night. Now that he’s 6months id like to day wean him. For the past two days he’s had 4x150ml bottles of A2 formula during the day. Breastfed at night. He’s now waking up in discomfort during the night -arching back, whimpering and farting. He’s also scratching his forehead raw. Poos r fine. He’s also growling and grumpy during the day but he’s a bit of a grump normally (possibly genetic ?, i was a grumpy bub too) . Is it possible he has cmpi? Is there any formula that’s better than A2 for sensitive tummies? Help..

MrsG2 have you tried Allerpro, a HA formula or something like Nan Comfort?

I’ve got DD on Allerpro at the moment.

Sounds like CMPI, you don't need a script for Allerpro, it could be a good way to test this (in conjunction with your gp/mchn). The proteins can build up too and cause more of a reaction as time goes on (that's why women are usually told it will take sever weeks of eliminating dairy from their own diet before you may see an improvement in a Bf CMPI baby), just something to be aware of

I'd stop the weaning process if you can and see a GP about investigating intolerances. Give bubs tummy a chance to heal and then try something else.

You could always source donor milk if thats an option

S26 is very gentle on tummies. DS reacted badly to nan ha, so I spoke to a pharmacist who said s26 is gentle.

We’ve been using s26- 6-12m gold for a few weeks now.

Alternatively if you don’t want to switch formula try infacol, it helps with discomfort and wind pain. We see it until very recently as DS doesn’t need it anymore.

Also are you feeding him solids too? Things like peas can cause discomfort and pain for babies overnight.

Oooh , I just realized you wonderful ladies replied !!! Thank you all! I took DS to the Gp and paed and both think he doesn’t have cmpi because he doesn’t have diarrhea /body stools or vomiting. Also, DS is handling the A2 formula much better now .. I guess it just took time for his body to adjust to being day weaned. He’s still clingy and a bit grumpy , but that’s his personality .. his gas and tummy seem to have normalized aside from the odd day where his solid meal gives him gas
