Re: When did you wean off of Nutramigen/Alimentum?

I just wanted to update you ladies. I went ahead and gave Similac Sensitive a try when DS turned 8 months old (nearly 7 months old adjusted age). He has done quite well on it. He is actually drinking it which makes him sleep better at night. He isn't fussy on it at all. His poo has also returned to a more normal consistency (as on Nutramigen and even Alimentum he had very runny poo that left him with a constant diaper rash).

I guess it depends on why your LO is put on a hypoallergenic formula. If it is true allergies/intolerances than it is probably best to keep them on it for the long haul. I think in our case his prematurity caused him to have poor digestion/colic and the Nutramigen really helped get us through that phase. He seems to have outgrown it and I'm very thankful.
