When my son was born like always they just put him on regular similac (blue can), he was on it for one day and it gave him diraha so they took him off of it.... Make a long story short after 2 months of trying different formula's his doctor put him on alimentum. It helped with the eating/fussyness/gas/reflux but he has always had a breathing problem, he is going to a lung dr every 6 weeks and is having a tube run down his thoat to look into his lungs on Monday, it honselty sounds like he has a cozoo in his thoat. Well yesturday his dr wanted him to start back on the regular similac and we down from 4 breathing treatments a day to just 1 so far. I was just wondering if anyone thought his breathing could be due to the alimentum or if anyone else's child did something smiliar?!?!?!?!Answer Question

Formula has many risks and side effects and unfortunately it sounds as if your child is suffering from those side effects.
Have you tried to relactate? By your child going right to formula you had no chance to see if you are able to produce. Remember even producing a little and feeding him that little bit may be able to bring your child around. There is also donor milk if you can not relactate.If I were you I would do everything in my power to try and give baby the normal nutrition his body is craving. Good Luck!!
