Trying to wean 5mth old baby but he spews formula, he doesn't spew breastmilk. I was told to stay off dairy so he's on goats formula for his tummy ?

In brief: Formula feeding

Goat's milk does not contain a key nutrient called folic acid, a lack of which can cause severe anemia.
I don't know about Australia but there should be other commercially available formulas to try-one might consider one that is either lower in lactose content, more predigested or easier to digest or even a soy based one. You should probably check with the baby's PCP about different formula types
