My ds is almost 9 months old and has been breastfed since birth, and has never had formula. He started eating baby food around 4 months, and just within the last month has been able to eat oatmeal cereal (he would always throw it up when he was younger). He's also never been able to eat rice cereal... the only thing we can think is it gives him extreme gas. Here in the last month he hasn't really been breastfeeding, and mostly drinks juices. I'm worried that he's not getting proper nutrition because at 9 months he's barely over 15lbs. I really wanted to avoid formula altogether, but unfortunately it looks like he needs something. I've just always been really worried about formulas and them having stuff in them that could potentially harm him or not be good for him. Does anyone have any suggestions for formula or anything else that would help??
