Re: Having trouble with Nutramigen, went back to soy
My son also couldn't do Nutramigen.
He was on soy for a little bit before we went to Nutramigen and Alimentum, and developed a soy allergy. There are a lot of reasons to stay far away from soy-based formula. I'm sure you can google and make a decision for yourself.
We also went to Elecare and he did awesome. At age 3, we switched to Peptamin Jr, which he has done great on as well. Elecare doesn't have any proteins in it. It is completely amino-acid based, and you can live your entire life on it. We only switched because Peptamin Jr. comes in ready to feed, which is easier to deal with in the quantities needed for a 3 year old.
