Canadian Moms - Formula Question!!!


Can you buy hungry baby formula in Canada?
If so what brands, and what's it called?

For 3 weeks now LO has wanted a feed every hour and a half
Its so bad that when he has his baps during the day, when he wakes it has usually been two hours since his last feed, and he screams andcried real tears untill I have his bottle.
He won;t drink any more at a time and go longer between feeds, and hes definitely not ready for solids, so this is my only other option, besides feeding him 10 bottles per day.

I don't use formula, but when I've looked at it in the baby aisles of the grocery store I've never seen it (I've looked because I see it mentioned on here all the time by the UK ladies). How much does he take at a time in his bottles? Could you increase the amount he takes at each feeding? Sorry I am not really any help.

He will only take 5-6 oz per feed. He will absolutely NOT take a single drop past 6 oz.
I really don't think they make it here either, but i'm hopeful

That's what I put it down to at first, but three weeks seems like a long time, doesn't it?

I think this growth spurt does last a while it did for us (though now I can't remember how long )

Clara had a huge growth spurt between 4 and 5 months that lasted a couple weeks. She went from sttn to waking up 2-3 times for huge feedings and when she got measured at her 5 month appointment she had only gained 17oz but had grown 4cm!!!

Jarrett has been putting on an insane amount of weight since birth. He was 6 lbs 1oz when he was born, and I weighed him 2 days ago on my scale and he was 16 lbs! so 10lb weight gain in 4 months ... and he never used to eat like he does now! greedy little boy He is already is 6-9 month clothes as well .. I can't imagine how big he will be if this is another growth spurt!

I think the reflux formula is what we would consider "hungry baby" because it is thicker and would hang out in his tummy a littler longer. I was comparing Enfamil's reflux and Goodnight formula and it is the exact same (says so on the website). Maybe worth looking into!
