Rated 5 out of 5 by Craig Excellent but expensive
Our little guy was born 5 months ago and has been on Alimentum for 4 of those months. It seems to be the only formula that works for him and we aren't going to try switching anymore. We did that with our older son and it was painful for us and him. Eventually he settled in with Similac Sensitive and that's what we started our youngest on but he needed the Alimentum. Our pediatrician prescribed it and we thought our insurance company would cover the cost, but they denied the claim and said we need to take our son through a battery of allergy tests before they would approve. We are thinking about doing the allergy tests but we don't want to put him through all the skin pricks and other associated tests. We go through 1-1.5 bottles a day and at $11 each, it hurts at the end of the month. We are members of StrongMoms but we only get 1 check per month for $5 when we used to get 3 with our older son. I'm not sure why there was a change, but I wish Similac would go back to the three checks a month.

Sweet baby was diagnosed with colic to begin with. After going several days in a row of nonstop fussiness and crying, we went back to the pediatrician. Baby has reflux and milk protein allergy. My first child had milk protein allergy as well so this time I wanted to try using Alimentum. Within the first 24hours I noticed a big difference. She still had reflux problems but after about 10 days of being on medication for that, we now have a normal happy baby. My only complaints are that it is very expensive and they don't make a can larger than 1 lb. But I'll pay what I have to see my sweet girl happy and healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heather09 Totally helped my baby!!
My pediatrician recommended we switch to this formula because my baby was extremely sad after drinking a bottle of breast milk or regular similac formula because she could be lactose intolerant. After 2-3 days she quit being fussy and now drinks a bottle without crying and is happy all the time. The only bad thing is the cost as it is $30!

Our little one was constantly fussy and gassy. After being on 3 different formulas our doctor recommended that we try Alimentum. My little one went from being a fussy baby to being happy and content in just 3 days. We always just thought our baby was fussy but what a difference Alimentum has made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EastonsMama Great but expensive!
I was lucky enough to have a C-section and my milk didn't come in right away so in turn my son wouldn't latch properly, even after several lactation consultant attempts, so I pumped for 6 weeks until the well went dry. After that he was so fussy and didn't seem to tolerate any formula we tried until we got to Similac Alimentum. The powder helped a little but when we switched to the ready to feed he was a completely different baby! Happy all the time and no more discomfort from feeding! Yay! We got the checks right away but since I was breastfeeding I gave them to other moms that were formula feeding to help them out. Now I get one check here and there but not many and it's very expensive. He loves it and chows down and is growing, but our bank account is doing the opposite of growing. Overall a wonderful product, just wish it was a little more affordable. it's amost $11 per 32oz jug and we go through a little less than 1 per day!

My son has been on this milk for about three weeks now due his protein sensitivity I noticed he had blood in his stool while drinking enfamil so the dr right away recommend to change formula and I was lucky enough she have me a case of ready to feed I was so happy to take it I really didn't know much of this milk until that moment she explained how expensive the formula was I though to myself ahh it can't be that bad until they day the ready to feed ran out and I had to go buy the stuff myself.... I been looking around for coupons every where for this milk and j can't find anything at all !!!! I still have yet to receive anything from similiac it will be nice to get some type of help... Companies like these need to understand that helping a customer out makes such a big difference. I do have to say Enfamil sent there coupons right away!! It will be nice if similiac will do the same please reconsider your customer especially for a product like this

Rated 3 out of 5 by mommy1234 Alimentum
I am a resident in Canada and my 4 month old baby has to have the Alimentum formula due to a allergy. His pediatrician has advised me he will be on it until he is one years old . It is very expensive as only the ready made cans are available in Canada and not the powder, and I can not purchase a big case at a time to try and save some money because that is not offered in any store either. It is costing me a fortune to give him what he needs but I have no choice because he will get sick. I have tried the powder Enfamil nutramigen because it comes in a powder and it is more affordable, but he will not eat it. I had my son in July 2015 and since then I have only received one coupon from you with the similac club. Is there anyway you can send me more coupons or somehow I can order a case instead of having to purchase it 4 cans at a time?
