Infant Reflux, Soy Allergy, Soy formula and Enfamil AR?
My 5 week old son has infant reflux and was switched to soy based formula over a week ago. He has been spitting it up after almost every feeding. Two days ago he woke up with a few pimple like bumps on his face. Today he woke up and his face and neck were covered with the bumps and red patches. The doctor diagnosed it as eczema. Could this be due to a soy allergy and could this be one of the reasons he has reflux??? The doctor also switched his formula to Enfamil AR. We were also told to sleep him upright and give him Maalox 4 times a day. We bought a rocker/sleeper for sleeping and started the Maalox at noon today. We also started the AR formula, but it seems tonight he is fussier than ever, but spitting up less. Could the Enfamil be giving him a tummy ache? Any insight or info would be helpful. I just need help! I have a fussy baby that's in a lot of pain. Thanks all! P.S. His overall symptoms are: constant grunting/squirming, gassiness, gagging and loss of breath, waking up from naps with nasal congestion, milk gulping, spitting up (not projectile, but it does come out of his nose sometimes) and unsettled sleep

1. Yes the eczema could have something to do with the allergy. My son has eczema and they say that kids with allergies normally have eczema, the two go hand in hand. I doubt it is the reason he has reflux though. Babies either have reflux or they don't. 2. Did you switch over completely to the new formula or did... More
