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

If she starts having a problem again, how do I tell whether it's formula change, medication change or the relatively new solids? I think we will try to use milk-based formula in her cereal this weekend and see how it goes. I have to admit I have given her small spoonfuls of yogurt to no ill effect though so fingers crossed!
ALWAYS make one change at a time! So change either formula or medication but not both and give the change a good 2-3 weeks before you make another change. Believe me, it is always worth taking these kinds of things slowly Hope your transition goes well!!
