4. Switched From Breast Milk, Now Baby is Fussier. Colic or Allergy?
I can’t completely assure you that the formula isn’t responsible for your upset baby, but I doubt it is. Colic has not been linked to any type or formula. (However, switching from breastmilk to a formula can often lead to bulkier, thicker stools in the baby.)
Your daughter could be reacting the formula’s difference in texture, taste, or consistency compared to her usual breastmilk. This should be a temporary problem, only lasting a few days. If she continues to show any distress or eating problems, especially at this young age, you should give her pediatrician a call.
