Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready to feed best formula I have found so far I have been looking for a formula for about month now My daughter can not handle my brest milk she gets a very up set stomach ache, constipated off and on and become very fussy. I end up not sleeping for over 36hours. I have tried several diffrent formulas then I found this one and oh my has it been amazing. She has not even been on this formula for more then 24hours and she is doing great she slept about 8 hours straight last night and her stomach aches have gone away for the most part She is up andoing smiling no longer screaming and crying to the point for making her self sick and the constipation is gone. I have changed 5 poopy dippers in the last 9 hours. The last formula I had her on she didn't even want it. This formula she is wanting and is drinking it quite a bit. She loves the stuff and if she lives it then I love it. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product My son was recently switched to this formula and I have to say it has helped him out a lot! Although the price of 1 can is high I would recommend this formula to moms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a different baby! My only regret is that we waited so long to try it! After two months of my newborn crying nonstop in pain (from what appeared to be gas) and trying everything from lip/tongue tie revisions, chiropractor, cutting out diary (I was breastfeeding at the time), her pediatrician recommended trying the formula for a week to see if it would help. Within the first couple days it was like we had a new baby! She was finally smiling and actually able to sleep! It has been a lifesaver! Although it is unfortunate it is expensive we decided to make the switch to formula as it is worth seeing our baby happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colicky newborn My third baby has been very colicky. It was recommended to me by her pediatrician to try Similac Alimentum. After the first few times we fed it to her my husband and I noticed a difference. She did not seem to be in as much discomfort. Over the following several weeks she has grown out of the fussiness as long as she is on this formula. We now can mix it with 1/2 sensitive and are slowly weaning her away from the Alimentum. I'm so thankful that this formula is out there! My other two were fine on the regular Similac. Trying different products has been easy and successful for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver My 4 month old was exclusively breastfed until recently and was suffering from severe allergic breakouts weekly. Her entire body was breaking out in hives and her face looked like a nasty heat rash. Our pediatrician suggested we try Alimentum for one week to see what happens and so far so good. We are only 3 days in and her skin is as soft and beautiful as it was when she was first born. She isn't itching or irritated and back to being a "normal" baby. I'm so happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Baby girl came out lactose and was unable to breastfeed. Was very fussy, gassy and constipated nonstop with every formula we fed her. Went through 4 formulas and 2 pediatricians before her doctor now declared her with GERD and prescribed Alimentum. It's been 3 weeks now and she's only had one fussy night. Pooping everyday and happier than ever! Smells horrible and a little pricey, but worth every penny for my daughter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I have tried four milks with my 2 month old. The hospital started him off on advanced my son wouldn't go for days. I thought it was maybe because he was young. But when he went he screamed at the top of his lounges his stool was hard dry and ball like. The doctor changed him to pro- sensitive but the formula is so foamy he sit up a massive amount. We changed him to sit up, he stool was great until three days later it got hard again and switch back to soft. I took him back to the doctor and they informed me he might have a food allergy. So now we're trying this one and he has been on this for about a week and he goes almost everyday. I'm a happy mom so far, but if this doesn't work my last choice will be total Comfort.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's ok I HATE the powder version of this product BUT the ready to feed has done wonders for my little one and I. She is so much happier. I just hated that I wasted my money on the powder I have about 8 cans that have not been opened and can not return. Stores will not exchange the formula with out receipt

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth switch from Pro-Sensative Besides the formula smelling like a box of "Cheez-its", it has worked well. My LO has ezcema and we wanted to remove as many allergens as possible that cause flare ups. So far, she has been less irritable and has slept 2/3 more hours at night! This formula seems to have her a lot more comfortable than she was.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bestfor food allergies We got Alimentum due to our littles food allergies and she does amazing with it! The only down fall is we can't get a prescription for it and it's so expensive! And I hardly receive any coupons in the mail anymore. Pretty disappointed in that!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gave it a shot I've tried many formulas including nutramigen (daughter gagged & spit it up). I thought maybe, just maybe alimentum would be better. My daughter can't take the taste. She just gagged as soon as I put the bottle in her mouth. It was my last hope to get her to feel better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why such a difference between this and the Expert Care? Why does it seem like these cans contain way less product than the 16oz cans of the Expert Care Alimentum? We are buying this for my daughter but cannot get the Expert Care in stores near us and that seems to be the better bang for our buck. Wish this wasn't so expensive and that we could buy the 16oz cans in store instead of online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thumbs up!! My son was a month old when the doctor put him on this milk & we have been happy every since LOL! First he was on enfamil & enfamil gentlease which broke him out and the milk made him gassy & constipated!! I say within 24hrs of trying Alimentum he was perfect again!!! It's definitely expensive but also worth the $$ and it also stinks! You can smell the vitamins in it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute lifesaver!! My son was diagnosed with a milk protein allergy at around 2-3 months old and his GI doctor suggested i supplement with this formula and i myself go on a dairy free diet since i am breast feeding him. He took this formula like a champ and his spitting up has greatly improved!! He's also finally gaining the weight that the doctors would like!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Such a great product! We changed my son to Alimentum due to acid reflux. He was spitting up mass quantity, we switched and noticed a difference within a week. Amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticed a difference in 24 hours!!!!! This formula is a life saver for my 8 week old daughter. She was in so much pain from gas. She would constantly scream in excruciating pain from the milk based formula we were feeding her. My pediatrician said it was just colic and there was nothing we could do. I knew as a mother that something just wasn't right. I finally decided to change formula after doing tons of research. We decided on Alimentum and am so grateful we did. We are using the ready to feed, which my daughter seems to love. The first bottle I gave her I noticed a total difference. She didn't twist and turn, she didn't fuss, tighten up her body in pain, or anything else. She just drank this with no problems. She even slept through the night last night for the first time because she wasn't waking up screaming in pain. The only complaint I have is like most others, the price. We are definitely not "Well off" by any means and this is very pricey. Have no choice but to buy this because it's the only thing that works. Would def say it's worth the money, just wish wasn't so expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing since slice bread Thankfully we only went through a week of crying, screaming, projectile vomit, nasty diapers and arching of the back. But the day he went on Alimentum he was a new baby! I love it! I wish it was a little cheaper but it's still a great formula!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful for this formula Alimentum has saved my sanity! My baby was up screaming in pain every hour or so trying to pass gas, and now she is a happy clam baby! That SLEEPS at night! Thank you so much! I do wish it was a little more affordable, but I'm grateful for a formula my baby can digest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great for milk protein intolerance This product is a game changer. Our son, as a newborn, had a milk protein intolerance that we discovered by trial and error. He couldn't drink the other similac formula that wasn't hydrolyzed. It definitely helped so much. Highly recommended. The only downside, it smells awful after being mixed with water! The pulltab that is used to open the metal pull off lid always breaks off before the lid is pulled back and the scoop is always buried. Annoying if anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed our lives! Our daughter was born straight into NICU and refused to breastfeed. I tried for 3 months to breastfeed and supplement with every formula under the sun. She came home on enfamil, I tried three of their formulas, then tried the similar line. We tried the usuals first-supplementation, spit up, sensitive, and total care. We tried alimentum as a last resort. Thankfully it resolved all of our issues! The constant fussiness,the gas, the straining for 24 hours a day. It truly worked miracles for us. We were able to rule out a dairy issue due to my daughter drinking my breastmilk which was not a lactose-free diet; but something simply didn't agree with her. She's now 7.5 months old and we are in the process of switching her back to the total comfort since she has a more mature digestive system and is eating solids. So far this is going well, but I don't know how we would have survived without alimentum. If we have future children with formula needs we will absolutely be using Similac formulas

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has helped our little nugget! I was exclusively breastfeeding until we found out our baby has a milk and soy protein allergy. After working hard on cutting both out of my diet and not seeing any results we asked our doc if switching to formula would help. Our doc gave us a sample of Alimentum and we saw quick results. Our baby enjoys tummy time again and we've seen a huge improvement overall. The only downside is the price. Our insurance company does not cover soy and dairy allergies and now we pay $40 a week to be able to keep our baby healthy and fed. It's a bit of a budgeting shock to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the best. My son is 6 weeks and started with similac advance, after 2 weeks he was having trouble passing gas and pooping so we changed to similac sensitive per Dr orders. He was on sensitive for a week and there were still no changes it got even worse. The Dr. Changed his formula to Total Comfort, I thought we had found the formula because after a week he seemed fine. Almost 2 weeks on total comfort and the sleepless nights, crying all night came back. The Dr. Gave me two samples of 1qt Alimentum and my baby is a totally different baby now, sleeps all night, doesn't have gas, he used to be really gassy all the time and colicky. We are now on Alimentum, and are lives are totally different now. I would recommend this product to any mom struggling to get their baby from being so gassy and colicky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has helped my granddaughter and she's slowly gaining weight. Her GI doctor has her on it. Any coupons available? She has a twin brother. This formula, Alimentum, is nourishing our granddaughter. She's seven months and 11 pounds. She's under a GI's care recommending 1.5 times the formula for every two ounces. Please help us with the cost of formula. Her twin brother is on a different formula. They have three under two years!! Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for babies with a milk allergy we found out at 4 weeks old that our son had a milk allergy. This formula helped to clear up all the side effects from the allergy in a matter of a few weeks. This formula in my opinion does cause more spit up than the formula/breastmilk we were originally using. Also, often times store coupons, or store deals do not work on this formula which is the most expensive formula that is sold. I find it frustrating that families with babies with this allergy have to always pay full price because its a "special" formula. In my area this formula is around $40, while most others are $25.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great formula My son hasn't tolerated many formulas due to his allergies. We found Alimentum Ready to feed and he has been doing so well on that! Smells a little funky but my guy doesn't care. :)
