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

So, Elias has been on the Similac Sensitive for about 2 weeks now. At first he seemed to be doing great. Now I have noticed a few things: his excema is back all over his body (he had it bad before being put on Nutramigen), and he has also started spitting up a lot again. He used to have such bad reflux he would projectile vomit almost every bottle. We switched to Nutramigen and that completely stopped. Now he is spitting up quite a bit of every bottle, not projectile, but in between. Otherwise he is taking the formula fine and isn't fussy or anything. So, I'm not sure what to do. I am hesitant to put him back on Nutramigen because he really refused to eat it and it caused him to be cranky and not sleep well. Decisions, decisions....
