Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t like it! My 4 month old just got put on this. He does not like the taste at all and won’t drink it. Gives a yucky look and turns away from bottle. Why is this?! What can I do?!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This formula helped our LO! Our LO had severe tongue and lip ties that prevented her from latching/breastfeeding, even after a laser dental procedure at 5 days old. I struggled to pump enough and supplimented with Similac Pro Total Comfort for the 1st 3 months. Our LO ate that formula exclusively from 3-6 months. All of a sudden at 6 months, she experienced explosive and constant diarrhea for 2 weeks. It got so bad that her diaper rash started to bleed.The pedicitrican recommended Soy formula which did lessen the diarrhea but it also gave her hives. So our 3rd option was Similac Alimentum. Within days her stool was back to normal, allowing the diaper rash to finally heal. She's been taking Similar Alimentum for the past 4 months. It is expensive and smells terrible BUT it helped us so much!! To offset the high cost, our pediatrician wrote a prescription so we're able to purchase it using FSA dollars (insurance). As we approach the 1 year mark, I'm terrified to try and reintroduce cow's milk. Fingers crossed!! Thank you to Similac Alimentum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved our sanity This by far is the BEST formula! It was a lifesaver for our little girl. She was breastfed for the first 6 weeks and developed the worst colic our pediatrician said she had ever seen. We tried so many different formulas and there was no improvement. She cried so much one day that I took her to the emergency room and demanded them to do xrays on her to see if something was seriously wrong. All they could tell me was colic. My husband, baby and I were miserable for months. Finally when she was 6 months old we tried this formula and our little girl was healed. No more crying, fussiness, and gas! It was the first time she smiled and laughed. We couldn’t be more grateful for this formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vomiting after use My daughter was on enfamil gentleease with diarrhea so I switched her to alimentum. I first tried the power and she vomited the whole thing so then I bought the ready to drink same thing, she vomited. So I just switched to nutrimegen. Hopefully she doesn’t have an reaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! We used ProAdvanced at birth to 2 months and it was ok he was gassy and ate a tonnnnn then we switched to Gerber Soothe for about 3 months. My babies stools were basically half stool half formula, couldn’t get him peaceful, he had a horrible time with stools, cried, and just was so gassy and uneasy. My doctor recommended us putting him on this. It’s double the cost but worth every dollar the last 7 months. He has easy stools, a regular stool, hasn’t had one upset stomach nor any signs of colic nor gas since the day he has started this formula. It has been a life saver. The smell isn’t the best but it’s formula so who cares. The biggest can defiantly gets your further along. He has been the happiest most comfortable baby since the day we introduced this! I couldn’t say enough good things about this product and I recommend it to everyone! So thankful for this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind I had a premature child and once my breastmilk stopped we tried neosure then pro total comfort (caused gas,spit up), sensitive (refused) then soy (refused all except 1.5 oz.).. went back to neosure until we could figure out our next step, it (and soy) caused him to get congested and rashy.. it's been half a day and he isn't as gassy, seems more relaxed and most of the rash is gone.. he absolutely loves the taste and drinks more than previous formulas and can't wait for it to take full effect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great formula/ Horrible container PRO-After trying 6 different formulas we tried this one and it was the magical formula that worked. We noticed a change within a week, my baby's acne had completely resolved, he didn't have horrendous poops or loud farts/belches, he wasn't throwing up 1/2 or more of his feedings, and his colic 100% resolved. I would recommend this to anyone that has tried sensitive tummy formulas and are still having issues. However I would try different brands of the sensitive tummy milks before resorting to this. All babies are different and what will work on one might not work on another, also there is quite a few store generic brands that might be more cost effective. Because well lets be honest this milk is super expensive. I am going through a 19.8 oz can every week at 40$ and my baby is only 3 months old drinking 3 oz at a time. I am on a fixed income and unfortunately Similac does not send out enough coupons/checks. The welcome package was nice and we had checks that lasted that first month, but they don't sent them out as frequently as you need to purchase milk CON- You should make this milk available in the same quantity that you do the other formula that you offer. Before my son was on this formula he was on the similac pro-total comfort 22.5 oz plastic can. I miss this can and wish you would use it for the alimentum as well. The plastic can is amazing because it has a holder for the scoop so your not always digging around looking for it, the sides of the container are flat so you can get an even scoop, and the lid is a hinge which makes one handed (other hand holding baby) bottle making A LOT easier.
