Hello all,

just wondering if any moms out there have there babies on enfamil nutramigen formula? our daughter has acid reflux and her pedi recommended putting her on nutramigen formula. she was on similac isomil soy but was still very gassy and spit up a lot (shes also on prilosec for the reflux)...i have heard good things about nutramigen formula and she just had her first bottle of it and took almost 6ozs where she normally does only 4....aside from the price of it being so expensive, but if it works i don't care how much it costs does anyone have any positives or even negatives about it? I need some nutramigen reviews.

thanks

My doc switched my son to the formula around 5 months. Initially, he spit up quite a bit... and yes the smell was pretty strong at first. He even rejected the bottle a couple of times. Now, after three weeks he's thriving. No spit-ups, he even burps on his own sometimes. He's definitely gaining weight and has taking a liking to the formula. He's never constipated and sleeps through the night. Usually from 10pm to 8am… I spare no expense when it comes to the little one....Hope you do the same.

My son's allergic to regular formula and soy formula so that's what he's on. It's that or Similac Alumentum which is about $6 more expensive a can. He likes the Nutramigen just fine. Everything else out there he gets face bump, serious constipation, hives, and blood in his stool. We had to get a script for the WIC office from the pediatrician for it. My Nutramigen review - If it makes baby happy it's worth the extra effort =)

My "baby" is now 30 and when she was an infant used this formula and it worked so well for her-was expensive then also but so worth to make her more comfortable

we were in the same boat... our 3 month old twins were on soy and zantec for reflux the projectile and being in pain seemed to be getting worse so weitching to nutramigen and going off the zantec and they are like different babies! for the better! sleeping more and now taking 5-6 oz

Mine was on this for acid reflux and we also had to add cereal to it so he didn't have to take meds for it I loved it it worked well with the reflux

i have just come to the conclusion that as long as she isnt bothered by the spit up and is gaining weight (which she totally is...my little piggy) that its fine by me. but yes it has DEFINITELY 100% helped with her constipation..she has absolutely no issues going anymore where before she was struggling and only going every two days....so if it helps her i will pay any price!!! Thanks for all of the nutramigen reviews!

she was doing really great on it for about a week...then the spitting up came back (i really dont think i can do much about that especially with the reflux) however, since shes on her medicine she doesnt scream anymore when she spits up because it doesnt burm...she just smiles!!! my little goofball. however, im keeping her on the nutramigen because she is less constipated on it..with her other formula she would poop maybe once every other day and would struggle...now she goes once or twice a day with no problems at all...and even though it smells gross she doesnt seem to mind because she doesnt fight me when eating anymore

my son was on that for the same thing for a little while but was still spitting up and being fussey. the only thing i hated was the smell of it when he spit it up and burped and when i made it. and yes its very expensive. for 5 cans where i live its $105. CRAZY!
