  • 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

    Recommended by our Pediatrician. It has been helpful to ease some of the discomfort our girl has been having digesting milk proteins. Feb 06, 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

  • My one month old got this from her pediatrician to try as she has GI issues and after the first feeding using it she wouldn’t drink it anymore and it smelled awful! Nov 26, 2018

  • Although it is more expensive, this formula has been great for my son. He is 5 weeks old and has a milk protein allergy. Since being on the formula he is not spitting up and is not constipated. Oct 23, 2018

  • Its the only formula that my son tolerate, but it smell awful. Sep 26, 2018

  • This formula worked the best for my baby, but is pretty expensive. Sep 24, 2018

  • 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

    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

  • My daughter was put on this after not being able to tolerate other formula after being in the hospital. Her doctor wanted to try similac alimentum, RTF and I am so glad we finally did. Sep 16, 2016

    We literally tried five other formulas for our colicky baby. She has a VERY sensitive tummy and could not tolerate any of them until we found Alimentum. Can't be without it. Nov 17, 2013
