  • With the shortage of Nutramigen we were forced to buy this. My daughter has been so uncomfortable and spitting up constantly since switching to this product. She has been on it for over a week. Nov 30, 2022

  • My baby has a milk protein allergy and other formulas were so hard on her stomach. She suffered from constipation,gas, and was overall in pain before finding this one, it has helped her so much! Sep 02, 2022

  • I hate that we love this formula. It is $$ but it is the only formula that baby has not had colic and gas issues on. The powder mixes well for bottles and the RTF is so convenient. Apr 07, 2022

    Wonderful formula for babies with CMP allergy and reflux. The price is outrageous for older babies who drink more per bottle. So sad to feel taken advantage of because breastfeeding didn’t work out. Mar 18, 2022

  • An absolute lifesaver. It is so hard to find baby formula without any corn byproducts. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle. Oct 15, 2021

  • My son was very on breast milk and any formula I tried so his pediatrician suggested this and he’s been the best baby ever since being on it once you get passed the dog food smell it’s amazing Oct 06, 2021

  • Finally got some sleep! After months of screaming & yelling, we found out baby had a Milk allergy. This is the only formula that worked & happy baby since then. Wish we had it day 1! Oct 02, 2021

  • I have 4 kids and all 4 had milk protein allergy. 2 of my babies received a combo of my breast milk and this formula, in addition to me cutting milk protein from my diet. They tolerated this well. Jul 14, 2021

  • My kids both had to use this formula and while it didn’t work out for one, it did the other. The downside is the price. It seems ridiculous to make parents pay almost 2x what regular formula cost. Jul 08, 2021

  • My daughter has a severe sensitive to we don’t know what yet and the liquid Alimentum was the ONLY formula she tolerates. Hands down best option out there. Apr 06, 2021

  • Used for colicky baby with milk insensitivity and reflux. Let me tell you the proof is in the pudding. We heard the smell is bad but better with the premade bottle and it is. Baby loves. Sep 30, 2020

  • I haven’t tried it yet i just bought. I’m nervous but excited to try it on my baby girl. Jul 03, 2020

  • Started my baby on this formula when he was 3 days old. It smells bad but baby’s tummy was happy. He very rarely spit up, or had constipation/diarrhea. No colic either. I RECOMMEND May 18, 2020

    This has been the best solution to my daughters gassy issues. She loves this formula and did really well accepting it! Mar 09, 2020

  • My son has been on this since 3 weeks old due to severe reflux - it was the only thing that helped him eat and digest in peace. I have no idea what we would have done without it...pricey but worth it Dec 10, 2019

  • This was a great product for my last baby (now age 4) because she had a ton of sensitivities. However, the liquid and powder are NOT created equal. The liquid form was great but the powder form stunk. Sep 14, 2019

    So far so good it’s been a few weeks and it’s crazy expensive but baby’s bowel movements are back to normal and is not as gassy or seemingly in pain Aug 25, 2019

  • The ready to feed is a miracle! It’s expensive but worth it! Haven't tried the powder form yet. Aug 16, 2019

  • Worked wonders with my kiddos with milk allergies have had to use with 2 of my kids! Expensive but definitely not the most expensive! Apr 07, 2019

  • This was great for my son who has a milk protein intolerance. He never had gas, spitting up, or any other problems with this formula. Wish it was a little cheaper! Feb 06, 2019

  • This formula was a life saver, we found out our baby has a milk protein allergy and she got put on this formula, she is like a whole new baby! She feels much better and cries so much less! Sep 17, 2018

  • Our sons dr tried him on this when found out hes allergic to the protein in milk he got so sick on this we ended up back at the hospital Aug 28, 2018

  • Not really crazy about the ingredient list here including corn syrup, but it's what my son tolerates best. Aug 07, 2018

  • Reduced spit up significantly for the first week or so but then my baby seemed to revert back to having spit up issues. It is too expensive to not have much of a change so we switched back to Enfamil Aug 02, 2018

    It took us 7 months to figure out our daughter was sensitive to milk and soy. Our doctor finally recommended this formula and it was like a brand new baby. She was so much happier. Jun 06, 2018

  • Had to use this formula for my newborn until she was off of formula. Only one that helped with her reflux and gas. It's pricy but worth it. Apr 17, 2018

  • This formula is a life saver!! My lo has a food allergy and was in so much pain from breast milk as soon as we switched her to this it was like night and day! She was a completely new baby within 24hr Apr 05, 2018

  • Both kids had/have MPI. Son did great on Alimentum; daughter still had mucus and blood in her stool. She surprisingly ended up on soy formula. Go figure. Mar 30, 2018

  • I switched to Alimentum after trying 5 different formulas and realizing my daughter had a lactose intolerance/allergy. She was fussy all day and especially after feeding. Now shes so much better!!! Mar 27, 2018

  • Used with my first born. Product was great . After switching formula 4x we ended up with this and was more than happy Mar 18, 2018

  • This is the only formula my baby half way keeps down! Every other one has given her very bad reflux and a rash. This one stays down half the time and no rash! Feb 01, 2018

  • This formula was/is a life saver for us. Our baby girl had a milk protein allergy. Tried 4 formulas before this. She was a new baby within 24 hours! Thank you Similac! Jan 20, 2018

  • We started supplementing with this while he was hospitalized and continued at home per GI. Its the only one that does a little better with his severe reflux (& we've tried them all even the neocate). Nov 05, 2017

    My baby has a milk soy protein intolerance. She was able to tolerate the RTF much better than the powder since it does not contain corn syrup. Expensive but worth every penny. Oct 22, 2017

    My baby seemed to prefer the ready made formula vs the powder version. Cleared up his eczema. Aug 11, 2017

  • Both of my boys used this and it was a life saver. One son has a true milk allergy and other used it for reflux. It was great for both situations. Mar 17, 2017

  • My son is a super sensitive baby and this was the only formula that helped his sensitivity and reflux. Alimentum is super strong in odor, but the best thing that could happen for us! Jan 14, 2017
