I've been spending a lot of time on this website. They have a ton of info on the GFCF diet and a page of formulas here.

 

I don't have any personal experience with formula, so maybe someone else can give you a better recommendation. smile.gif

I think that Enfamil ProSobee Lipil is GFCF and has DHA/ARA in it.  It's available pretty much everywhere in cans, bottles or powder.

i am trying to go soy free too. I am breastfeeding but sometimes my supply is low so I am supplementing.

Supplementing will only hurt your supply issues. Do you have a supplemental nursing system so that the baby can stimulate milk production while getting some extra food? 

 

Special formulas are really expensive. I'd suggest talking to a La Leche League leader or Lactation Consultant if you haven't already.

Why do you think your supply is low?  The best way to combat temporary low supply is to nurse more, not less.
