Switched to Nutramigin..how long to see a change?

Title says it all...we just switched (yesterday afternoon) from Similac Neosure to Enfamil Nutramigin (suspected milk protein allergy on my part and lacation consultant's part - she is also breastfed..about 50% i have no dairy in my diet and have not in over a month). she had an allergy ring rash on her butt - totally rubbed raw, a rash on her skin, and itchy red eyes (well I think they are itchy because she constantly rubs them almost like she is angry) and green mucusy liquid poop (honestly if it wasn't green I would think it was pee)...and we thought some breathing problems, but, that may just be from reflux.

Just wondering when we should see improvement if there will be any...thanks!

Typically Nutramigen you see improvements 24-48 hours and full affect 2 weeks. We started Nutramigen a week and half ago, within next day improvements and only getting better each day since.

You are right!!! Her skin rash is gone (she still has the "allergy ring") and her poop is actually looking like poop now! She even seems happier, letting me put her down several times today! SOOOOOOO happy!

Yes, with my DS2 I noticed an improvement within 24 hours and then even more-so over the following week. So if you've already seen improvement I'd say you are on the right track! With my DS3 there was no improvement so after about 3 weeks we moved down the line to Neocate.
