I think the formula helped but I don't think it's completely workin. I'm not sure what to do. It's been a week now but the way they were on Sun and today I think something is still amiss. I'm just not sure about anything anymore!

It can take 2-3 weeks for the effects of milk proteins to heal.

Hugs, yes it can take a few weeks Laura

What's bothering you sweetie? Any reflux symptoms? Are they a bit colocky? Wind/gas?

Squealing in pain, not settling to anything frequent waking and then settles to start hard crying 5mins later the evening fussing which had gone off a bit is back. Basically this formula from what I can gather is about 60% broken down which would explain why we've seen some improvement but I'm thinking it's not broken down enough yk? It's like something was a bit better but now it's flared back
Up. I feel like the new milk took the edge off but isn't enough yk? I don't think reflux but am keeping a close eye.

Babybarr keep a diary. that is exactly what happened with us. he was on lf milk and it calmed him down a bit but was still not right. keep fighting for the milk protein free milk even if you ask for a trial first.

What is IF milk?  (assuming similar to what we're currently on)

What options are there for milk protein free milk?  I know neocate is very expensive isn't is so thinking they won't want to prescribe that??  I'm assuming the next one they'll offer is nutramigen but again that's just very broken down isn't it?

This is just from wiki .. I know very scientific :P
But if you scroll down to prep and content - variations en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infant_formula it does give you basic info on the different options...

I'm probably little help as I'm not sure of how your health system works, or options available :-*

Sorry! Lf is lactose free. Think other hypoallergenic formulas are nutrimigen lipil 1 upto 6months or lipil2 if older than 6 months. Think theres one called elecare too.

We got offered this from our GP. Think they might start on that and then go down to Neocate YK.

I think money is one factor but also taste  :-\.  I think that neocate is even more grim than nutramigen  :-\

Elecare is like neocate.

And yes I can say from tasting it that neocate tastes revolting, like metal smells! :o no wonder they don't want to drink it, you can sweeten it up though ;) x

Our lo guzzles neocate lol. I think its cos he knew it stopped his tummy hurting. I dont know what the paed will tell us to put him on next though. He's 13 months but his allergy is still there :'(. We're going to try him with soy but i'm not hopeful.
