Honestly, in my case I eneded up hating Similar when I looked into it further. It is not all that great. I have then done my in depth research and fully switched to HiPP formula, it is absoultely amazin and fully organic which is not something you can find often. Yes, it is not the cheapest as it comes from Europe but even my pediatrician was amazed and then started recommending it to the rest of his patients. Worth a try, afterall your baby deserved the best right ? :-) When I started using it I notcied the baby was calmer and happier, simple change of food changed everything.

Are you eating dairy at all? If you are, and she did great on the similac sensitive, and you would rather keep breastfeeding, I would totally cut dairy in your diet altogether. Otherwise, this is definitely something your doctor should know about. Similac sensitive is meant for babies with dairy insensitivity, so your doc may want you try something else just to make sure she shouldn't be on a different formula instead.
My baby has GERD. It hasn't been formally diagnosed but she was basically a fountain of spit up after each feeding, eating constantly, colicky, and had this bad diaper rash all the time when we took her home from the hospital, so she's diagnosed based off of symptoms in her chart. I'm able to 100% manage it through diet though. I've been EBFing and have identified her triggers as basically anything that comes from an animal with four legs (so no milk products, beef, pork, etc), fish, and soy. At each of her check ups our pediatrician checks in to see if she has outgrown sensitivities or if I'm still having to avoid those products. Also with babies that have sensitivities, they'll want you to hold off on solid foods until they are older.
