Rated 4 out of 5 by B5282 Not enough coupons, otherwise great product.
My son has a milk protein allergy and had used this for a long time. He had done well with it, but there are not enough coupons available for this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GAN2 Changes for the worst
My baby has bad reflux and a dairy allergy. My options for formula are limited. Due to this I tried nursing as long as possible. Now that he is 6 months, I just can't keep up with him so we started supplementing with formula. To start, we used the sample can given to us by the doctor. It was great! No fussing, very little spit up and a happy baby. When I had to buy a new can I noticed the scoop size difference and wondered why the new scoop was so much bigger. About 1/2 of the way through the new can, he now cries during feedings again, is spitting up a lot and crying when spitting up, and not eating as much anymore. I don't know what changes you made but unfortunately I will be switching to Enfamil Nutramigen to see if that will get us back on track. Due to his dairy allergy this is the only Similac product I can use and it's just not working anymore. I wish you would go back to the original version of this formula.

I switched from enfamil gentlease to the alimentum (RTF) and from the first bottle there was a difference.My daughter would spit up no matter what amount I would give her. Doctors would tell me its normal because babies underdeveloped gi track. But she would spit up not normal amounts through out the day all day. Long story short first bottle of Alimentum at 6 oz (normal) no screaming after for more and spit up was minimum (because it was a wet burp). I am more upset with the doctors not wanting to switch her to this formula before I demanded it because their only reason was because she was still gaining weight. Im glad I did my own research!

Has anyone had problems with this formula causing thrush?! My daughter has been on this formula since Friday and since then I have noticed she will start to spit up again every so often, not only that she has gotten thrush from using this formula :( ! She had reflux issue when she was born but they haven't come back completely but she does spit up a little since using this formula. She was using similac sensitive before this and I never saw an issue! Very disappointing and frustrating!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by NaheN We used to LOVE Alimentum, now we'll be switching
We've used Alimentum for our daughter since she was in the NICU 7 months ago. She has severe reflux and Alimentum is the only formula she would tolerate and we LOVED it! She was born premature but has hit every growth and development milestones for her non corrected age! BUT with the new formulation change, we are back to her screaming in discomfort and spitting up massive amounts again. I can not begin to explain how extremely disappointed we are that the formula has changed!! And more importantly that THERE IS NO WARNING OF THE CHANGE!!! You have GOT to let the public know when something changes in your manufacturing process. The health of our children literally depends on this. My little one now refuses to eat, and as stated above, when she does, she spits 80% of it up and spends hours crying and writhing in pain. This is all excluding the topics of the can size change and the exhorbitant price. I can no longer feed this to my daughter and will have to likely switch to an Enfamil product as they still make products for babies with reflux and special dietary issues. Not to mention they send out way more coupons! I've always loved Similac and your products but this is 100% unacceptable in my book. I know I'm not alone in saying I would gladly continue to pay the ridiculous price for the old Alimentum in order to keep my baby girl healthy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by mae68328 Dislike new changes
After switching between every other Similac formula, Alimentum was a life savior. After what seemed like days of nonstop fussiness, we quickly saw our 4 month baby girl finally happy. The fussiness and constant puking stopped almost instantaneously.
After a few cans, we returned the store to buy more. Upon opening it we were baffled how the scoop size doubled and were disappointed to see how many less bottles it made. So we compared the old one to the new canister to find absolutely no marked differences. So we dismissed any weird thoughts and proceeded to use the formula as instructed. Our baby continued to drink it, but it was strange because now she was constantly spitting up again. I immediately started questioning the scoop size again.
So a quick search led me here, only to find out that our unfortunate experience seems to be way to common! I was correct in my suspicion of some changes. I am disappointed to not have been notified of these changes. But more importantly where do I go from here? This was a great product, I hope the best experience for those on it. However I can no longer say I would recommend this

Rated 3 out of 5 by stephens0003 Worked Wonders, Too Expensive
We switched to Alimentum due to reflux and it worked amazingly well. He stopped crying after eating and spit up less frequently. However, due to recent changes in the size of the cans and scoop, my 4 month old is going through 3 cans a week. At the current price, I can no longer afford it and I will be switching to Nutramigen since Enfamil offers more coupons and better pricing for its product. Additionally, whatever changes have been made to the formula has caused an increase in bellyaches and spit up. Overall, I would recommend for parents that can afford it.
