Rated 1 out of 5 by Winni Negative reaction to new formula
We have tried several brands due to allergy and settled on Alimentum. This was working well and then we bought "new" Alimentum thinking it was simply a branding change.
However, our baby had a visceral reaction to the "new" formula. While both cans suggest 8.7g per scoop and new can has bigger scoop to reflect "lighter fluffy" formula. We actually weighed old formula and old scoop and new formula and new scoop and old scoop surprisingly only has roughly 7g not 8.7g reflecting a 30% increase in formula w the new branded formula! This formula is for already sensitive babies and I can't believe they would make a change of this magnitude without informing existing parents and doctors of the change. We called Abbott labs and they basically told us we were wrong and to try "transitioning" but she has the same reaction w only one scoop of new formula together w 2 scoops of old. We have bought all the old we can find in the meantime and will be "transitioning" to a new brand...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sharmom makes baby sick!
My grandson did well on Alimentum, as he was diagnosed with a dairy allergy and colic at 2 months. He began to grow well and was a happy baby. Not any more! The new similac alimentum makes him very sick to his stomach; he spits up large amounts and is cranky! Whenever we can find the old Alimentum, we purchase it, and he goes back to his happy self. We search local stores and buy out their supply. Unfortunately it is getting much more difficult to find, and we are not sure what we will do when it is no longer available. Even his pediatrician agrees with our findings, and searches it out for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ohshaiv2x Great product
After switching from 2 formulas this one was the winner. Is there a generic brand of this?

Rated 1 out of 5 by JAE2016 New Changes are Bad for Baby!!
My daughter had to be put on Alimentum due to severe reflux. It was perfect for her and kept her symptoms manageable to non existent. Almost 6 months on the old Alimentum formula with better than expected results. Totally worth the cost. Since the new formula changes, she is SO fussy!! She now wakes throughout the night crying, has started having bouts of reflux again (!!), and she NEVER finishes a bottle!! This is incredibly frustrating. She is not the same sweet, happy baby she was before the switches. We are all losing sleep. My child seems to be suffering because of the changes similac deemed "necessary". I am so disappointed. I am going back to her doctor for a recommendation for an Enfamil product instead. I buy multiple cans at a time because I live in a small town, and I have to drive to another town to purchase it. I now have 5 cans of this garbage in my cabinet that I can't use. Big, expensive loss for me on top of all my daughter is going through. Sad.

my baby is 05 weeks old. when he was born the hospital gave him similac blue, then he was very gaze so we switched to alumentum . The previous version was good, with the new version he started to spit up. My husband realized that the scoop is bigger with the new version so for cost reasons , we decided to try total confort. he was fine for a week and now he cries non stop. I dont know what to do. Tonight I just bought 2 pre made bottle of sensitive. will see how that works. It is very frustrating. I bought so many cans for nothing

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bambi this product works wonderful for my 3 month old!
My little one is so happy on this formula!
it's just so pricey, I asked for coupons from ya'll and signed up for the rewards program, and I never receive the $5 dollar coupon like others seem too....haven't gotten any. Is there a way to make sure i can get coupons to help me out! Thank you so very much!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 2ndtimeMom35 New formula isn't working!
I had great success when I used Alimentum for my first child 2 years ago. He couldn't tolerate any formula and after trying 4 other kinds, Alimentum finally worked! Now, my newborn (2 months) is also having issues with formula and I have switched to Alimentum hoping to have similar results. I purchased the new, smaller, cans assuming it's the same...but it's not. My child is gassy, irritable during and after feedings, and for a formula that's meant to relieve these issues, that's troubling to say the least! I found the older cans in a local pharmacy and bought them all. My newborn is digesting it SO much better. I don't know if it's the different measurement (scoop size is different) or a different ingredient mix, but you really need to go back to what it was before. Once I can't find the older Alimentum, I will need to find something else because I will not use the 'new Alimentum'...it doesn't work!
