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

My ds was on Neutramigen and breastmilk until age two (breastmilk until 2-1/2). He was/is severely allergic to cow´s and goat´s milk and is at the bottom of the height & weight scale (around 5-10%).

My DD1 was on nutramigen for a full 12 months. Then we started to transition to soy slowly for a month or two and then she was on soy alone for about another 6 months until she could tolerate milk!

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

Just wanted to update that Elias has now been off Nutramigen for 2 months and is doing great. We went from Nutramigen to Similac Sensitive and then to Enfamil Premium Lipil. He's been on the Lipil for a good 6 weeks and hasn't had any issues. Even his eczema cleared up. He was 8 months old when we switched and had been on Nutramigen for 4 months. He is 10.5 months old now.

so its been a year since this thread was used but since i found it thru a google search and am a new member here, it wont let me private message you to ask...
how did the transition from formula to milk(if you did) go? any relapses with stomach or eczema? i'm just now thinking of transitioning my 6 month old who isnt on meds for reflux anymore(chiropractic was the fix there. 2 weeks and no meds necessary! literally, a Godsend!) but is on Nutramigen so i am curious. I'm also curiuos because Nutramigen has probiotics and they, along with Omega 3's are what has "cured" my 3 year old's eczema (the up-during-the-night-bleeding-&-crying kind) so i'm hesitant but would really like to not have the stinky, expensive Nutramigen around anymore I have FloraBaby on hand for more probiotics if the need arises though.

thanks.

We weaned LO at about 9 months. He had bad colic too so he was put on nutramigen at about 3 months. I switched to the gerber good start gentle and he did great on it, I wish I tried it sooner because nutramigen was SO expensive.
