This is due to the special thickened AR (Anti-Reflux) formula which your baby is on. Usually corn starch is added to thicken the formula in the AR-type formulas. This is the reason why you notice that she is so windy and has the bad smelling poos. As long as she does not have diarrhoea and is growing well and gaining weight, she can stay on this formula.
