    Okay, I have been giving Frankie a bottle of formula at lunchtime to replace a bf in preparation for me returning to work. She is fine on it and enjoys it no sickness. However since starting her on this she has developed a rash on the side of her face, it looks like little spots. Jonny has eczema and this is exactly how his started but it didn't coincide with him having formula. Could she have an allergy to SMA? If so what can I do?

    Help please!

    No, no sickness just the rash and lots of wind! She is quite uncomfortable in the tummy.

    Ethan had a milk allergy, he was very sick all the time, didnt keep anything down,

    When he went on to solids it was really hard, shopping took twice as long coz i had to find foods that didnt have there 2 ingrediants in, otherwise he would be really ill. He had to have really plain foods bless him.

    He grew out of it by the time he was 2 tho which was good :)

    If she is not being sick then i dont think she is intollerant, maybe try a diffrent formula?

    I don't think it is intolerance, I never said that. But I think she may be allegic to something in it. I am going to see the HV today so I will ask then and see what she recommends.

    HV has recommended Aptamil as it supposed to be the closest to breastmilk with the least additives. She also said Frankie may get used to formula in time and it might just be an initial reaction.

    i tried several formulas with luke as he suffered with really bad and painful tummy/wind. we tried the comfort milk and it was so thick and made his poo green and stink and didn't help. after nearly 12 weeks of unhappy baby we resorted to SMA lactose free and he is so content now. he had a hernia repair at 8 weeks so has always had a sensirive tummy but this one really did the trick - just wish i tried it weeks ago!!:dohh:
