Similac Alimentum Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My son wouldn't eat it My poor little guy just got diagnosed with a milk allergy, so the doctor recommended this. He took about an ounce and started gagging. Couldn't get him to eat anymore and I'll have to unfortunately kiss my $40 goodbye since I doubt the store will take back an opened container. So disappointed since I thought buying a name brand would be best, but I guess not!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some good some bad My baby had amazing changes in his behavior once we made the switch no more screaming at night and already sleeping better. The doctor suggested we switch due to his milk sensitivity however the ready to feed is very different from the powder and I wish it wasn’t so expensive. He really fights us on the powder but enjoys the ready to feed I don’t know they are so different if they’re the same product. And I wish they sold it in larger amounts

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well but very expensive This product works well if your little one has food sensitivities but it’s very expensive and BEWARE the powder and ready to feed are not the same!! My little guy likes the ready to feed but it’s even more expensive than the powder and sometimes harder to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great my little one was switched to this, and is doing amazing. She is also on medication for acid reflux and the two combined makes her a happy baby. I just wish it came as 2 oz, 8 oz ready to feed bottles. i Love those for the middle of the night and a quick grab when your out. Also would like to have them as a 4oz ready to go powder package. that way i dont have to carry a container of powder around with me. if they had those two options working mothers like me would have a much easier time on the go. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, what a difference a day makes! I decided to try this formula as my son was still having painful gas and discomfort with the sensitive formula. I was using gas drops in every bottle. With the alimentum he is doing great! Belly bloat and painful gas are gone. He is also now having regular bowel movements. Trust your instincts if you think there is a sensitivity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful... my newborn stopped eating After using Similac Pro as recommended from the hospital, my one week old newborn developed chronic gas pain, fussiness, non-stop flatulence, and did not sleep. After doing as much research as I could, I switched him to this one. The smell is AWFUL, the taste is AWFUL and after 4 days of my newborn eating this, he has decided to stop eating. His gas has continued and has in fact worsened. This formula is so thin, so when he was eating, he was eating every 1.5-2 hours when before he was eating every 3 hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, Questionable Service My 1 month old became a gummy smiling baby overnight after switching to the ready to feed formula. Saved both of us. However, it is very expensive and we have been advised by our pediatrician not to use the cheaper, powder version at this age. We contacted Similac for coupons to assist with the cost and they were extremely responsive - HOWEVER they mailed us two huge packages of all their other types of formula and only one can of the powdered Alimentum. Feels like they are wasting their money and resources on those packages. Certainly was a let down for us when we received it. Appreciate the thought I suppose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I also hate the can! Put it in the regular plastic similac tub with a hinge! And make it available in a larger size! I feel like I’m buying formula alllll the time.
