and severe silent reflux at two months. Our ped put him on Elecare, rice cereal and prevacid. Otherwise, he wasn't gaining any weight and was constantly crying in pain. Around 3.5 months I tried taking him off prevacid and he did fine.I slowly started putting less cereal in his formula with success. Within a week he was completely off the rice cereal. I slowly transitioned him from Elecare formula to Similac Alimentum. Now he's only Similac Alimentum but he has a rash around his butt like he's having an allergic reacting. But that's the only sign he has. He's not clawing at me in pain at every feeding or fussy except when he's sleepy or hungry. No mucus in the poop. He's a happy baby who seems to be hitting all the milestones like he should. My question is: Am I doing him an injustice feeding him Similac Alimentum since he seems to be having a reaction? Or is the Alimentum fine since it doesn't seem to be bothering him other than his bum?

I should add that he's 5 months old and sleeps 10 hours straight through the night.
