I had not checked the other link but this one seems to work fine. That forum is actually very good, full of knowledgable people.

That is an awesome message board, full of very helpful info.  They offered wonderful support when Owen was suffering w/ reflux.

Yup - I always recommend them too - they were a big help with M's flux!

I wanted to add that DS is gassy (actually expelled) when he is constipated. We add 1 tsp of MiraLax to every other bottle of Neocate to help keep in regular. He does not seem to pass as much gas when he is pooping regularly.

Good luck,

We actually had her stool tested again on Friday and there was blood in it again after one week on Nutrimigen (from being on Neocate four weeks prior to that), so we're back to Neocate for the long haul.

Thanks for asking!

I am sorry to hear that. I hope the neocate works well and if she has lots of gas again it settles down after a while.

Oh the Neocate is already helping, I think. It was worth a try to see if some of the pain or discomfort might have been alleviated but we caught the return of the blood pretty quickly and I think that element of the pain is already getting better.
