Rated 4 out of 5 Great helper! We are so thankful!
My baby son Mark started diarrhea at 7 weeks and we came to the pediatricians for a couple of times to nail down the problem is dairy intolerance (milk protein allergy). We tried Neutramigen (from Enfamil) first, which was given by the pediatrician as advertising samples in powder form, but the flavor is so weird that the baby hardly drink. It did not stop the diarrhea significantly neither. Then we tried the premixed fomular of Alimentum (since we heard premixed is giving a faster impact than the powder and taste better due to the powdering technology worsening the flavor). And to our surprise, Alimentum works really well instantly that following day. Our whole family cheers with wine! We were so worried and anxious about Mark's continuous diarrhea and now it stopped! Mark started to gaining weight instead of loosing weight after using the premixed Alimentum. We are so happy that Similac (the Abbott) got Alimentum out on the market. So thankful!
The one star I am taking back is because the flavor still need to be improved...And it's quite expensive, we at least use one bottle up per day, not receiving any coupon yet. Hope there could be a reward system like the diapers. Then we could have already won a giant bear or something... Well, sure we need to pay for the special conditions. Appreciated, anyway!

No complaints just maybe the price. Does Similac ever offer coupons or free samples?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kelliab123 Great Formula, but too pricey!
My husband and I tried several other formulas before we found Similac's Alimentum. The other formula's did not sit well with our son's tummy and made him break out. The Dr. pointed us to Alimentum, and now are son is a happy boy with a healthy tummy. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is the price at about $30. Since we go through at least one can a week, the cost really adds up. Otherwise, we love the product and thank Similac for making such a great formula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lipruitt best product by far
I reserved the last star because of the price. My husband and I make great money (not WIC qualified) but cannot afford to spend $320+ on formula a month for our 14 week old. Our story: baby had to be supplemented with similac regular formula from week 2 because I was not producing how much he wanted to eat and still can't (he wanted about 3oz in the first week each feeding and after 7weeks old wanted around 6 oz#. Over the next few weeks, baby was having bloody diapers with forest green poo and mucus. Our pediatrician diagnosed him with a milk allergy and told us to stop breastfeeding and go solely Alimentum. This was a shock and I'll admit I only took part of her advice - I went on a dairy free diet and supplemented my EBM with the Alimentum around 7 weeks old. He is now 14 weeks old, a growing by in the 98th percentile height and 50th percentile weight #his parents are over 6 foot) and he is so different now! No bloody poo and back to greenish yellow, very rarely fussy, does not spit up as much during and after feedings, doesn't arch his back in pain, sleeps through the night, and is just overall a very happy baby! Happiness and health should always be priority. Also, just recently found out my BCBS PPO insurance plan covers Alimentum under my prescription benefits and we only have to pay a 45% copay - even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by emilee24 Thank GOD
I am so happy with this product. We are finally able to sleep in our house!!!! This formula has changed so much. My little man went from non-sop crying to being such a good happy little guy. We went from 1-2 hrs of straight sleep at night, to 6 hrs straight. No more waking up to his heartbreaking screams from his belly aches. Thank you so much for such a great product.

We recently had to switch from breast milk and supplementing with another formula to the Similac Alimentum because my 2 week old daughter has a milk protein allergy, a soy allergy, and silent reflux. Within 24 hours of switching to this formula my daughter went from a colicy baby that would only sleep painfully for 20 minutes at a time, to a content, happy little love that will now sleep 3 hours at a time and does not have the same discomfort from the other formula. This formula has really been a life saver and makes me feel much better about feeding my daughter. The only downfall is it is quite pricey, but you make it work for your little one no matter what the cost. Those certificates for 5.00 really help out a lot though!
Thank you so much Similac
