Has anyone had experience with Hypoallergenic Formula?

Our GI Recommended Soy Formula but I have some issue with it and feel more comfortable trying hypoallergenic first... but it smells and tastes very different than the formula my son used to... I am trying a mixture to wean it in, but I am nervous he won't take it!

My son is 10 months, should be 8 months (was a 31 week preemie) he has been having a hard time and throwing up so we are trying hypoallergenic but we are needing to mix it with his regular. I am hoping he will take it straight soon or I may try Gerber Good Start Gentle... who knows...

All 4 of my kids had to be on hypoallergenic formula, and my 10 month old still is. It does really stink, but I never had an issue with my kids not wanting it. My older three, had terrible constipation on other formulas (even soy), and my 4th had terrible diarrhea on the other formulas. I don't know how old your little one is, but my youngest was a little over a month old, before we realized she needed it, and I just switched her right over (no mixtures) and she sucked it right down.
