Rated 4 out of 5 by Mollymae008 Saved my baby's tummy
After 9 months of exclusive breastfeeding I lost my milk and needed to try formula. Our doctor said we needed to try hydrolyzed formulas because of her allergy so we tried practically every formula out there and the only one she'll drink is Similac Alimentum Ready to Feed! She literally spits out every other formula, even when I mix it with breast milk. I bought the canister of Alimentum and she hates it, spits that out too, but the ready to feed she'll actually drink! No idea what the difference between them is, but apparently there's something. If only I hadn't wasted that $30 on the canister, I could have gotten 3 bottles of the ready to feed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodgersgrl Spit up issues
My daughter was sick a lot after she was born and she was doing fine on your NON GMO sensitive formula and then all of a sudden she started spitting up everything she ate which caused her to go down in weight. Her Dr recommended we try enfamil AR but we tried your brand which is the spit up version after bottles going untouched of the enfamil. She did ok on the spit up version for awhile and built a tolerance to it and started spitting up again. Her Dr said this was the last thing we could try but he was hesitant to mention it in the beginning because of the price and me and my husband don't qualify for wic. She has done AMAZING on the formula there has been no more spit up and she is putting all her weight plus more on. The only thing I would say is I love the tubs for the other types of formula you offer I was heartbroken to find you don't makes this version in a tub. The tub version is easier on us and her nanny. PLEASE MAKE A TUB VERSION

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bbgirl Stopped the Colic overnight!
My daughter is my 4th child, and she was 4 weeks premature but in all respects very healthy. She became very fussy with colic pretty quickly, so we tried switching formulas hoping that would help her. We tried 3 different formulas including a soy based one before switching to this one. None of the prior ones worked for the colic and my poor girl was crying non stop all day long. I was about to lose my mind until my cousin recommended Alimentum so we tried it. I think you'll try anything when your baby is always crying so we switched to Alimentum yesterday afternoon and today she is like a different baby. I don't want to jinx it but I swear it worked like nothing I've ever seen before. She hasn't had a crying spell once since she got her first bottle of Alimentum. I thanked by cousin so much for the recommendation. I actually got some sleep last night. :) She is so much happier, no more stomach pains, and that makes me happy too. The only thing that I don't like is that the ready to feed doesn't come in larger bottles and it's quite pricey. I'll continue to buy it, because it's the only formula that works for our baby, but I wish there were coupons or samples that we could get to help with the higher cost. She is a growing girl and drinks it so fast. Anything would be helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happymom31 Alimentum + fussy baby = Happy mom
This was our 4th formula that we have tried for our son. He was born 4 weeks early but had no complications until about 7 weeks old. I use formula as a supplement due to not producing enough breast milk. This was the best formula that was easy on his stomach and he stopped spitting up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Morgan87 I love the Similac brand
I love Similac. I really do. But we're on WIC and they don't cover the only formula my son can actually stomach - Similac Sensitive. The Advances and Isomil make him SO gassy it hurts me to watch him hurt like that. This was my last option. While he's not gassy with it, all he does is spit every bit of it up so long after eating. I just don't understand why WIC can't or won't cover the sensitive!? It's frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KateS Miracle Worker, but where are the larger canisters?
Alimentum worked wonders for my daughter with a milk-protein and soy allergy. Are there any plans to increase the sizes of the powdered formula? Having to buy the smaller cans is a pain - it would be wonderful to be able to purchase the tubs, same as the other formulas. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ElaynaKyrstenMom87 Great, just pricey
After having to try my baby girl on four different formulas until I found this one, now she is doing wonderful on this formula! She pretty much burps as soon as I sit her up! I love, love, love it! Even though it has a potato milk smell, and makes her urine smell like the formula. She has been such a happy baby! Just wish it came in the same container as the other similac formulas, and closer to the price!
