DS is 5 months and at that age he farted A LOT and it was sooo loud. He still farts, but not as much.

I cant help but notice in your avi pic how loose her carseat straps are :/ that could really hurt her if you were in an accident :( anyways onto the OP question, she could possibly be getting too much iron and may need a low-iron formula or maybe that's just how she is

If she is gaining weight and doesnt seem bothered by the gas and spit up, I would say she's doing well and I wouldnt worry too much. Switching formulas can really mess with their tummies so stick with it as long as she is gaining and not uncomfortable you are fine. :D

i see i see :) then it must be normal
she gets fussy once every few days when shes eating. she'll eat then cry then eat again, along with farting, but eventually stop.but i think thats when shes just cranky :p

1. Please take your carseat/car to a carseat technician in your area so they can show you how to properly strap in your child. I see several significant problems in your avi pic---most notably the loose straps.



2. She may be getting too much iron. Consult your pedi and ask his advice. Did pedi recommend the extra iron or is it just something you wanted to try on your own? Switching formulas often makes the problem worse, not better.

My LO was like that until she was 4 months old and the doctor said as long as she was gaining weight she was fine. I hope this helps.
