  • I say you should call your doctor about it. Did your doctor tell you to take your baby off naturamigen? Because every one who I know used naturamigen, it was because a doctor told them to do so.

  • You should give him a call and let him know how its affecting the baby, or maybe its not. He'll probably have you come in so he can check it out and maybe run some tests

  • I will give it a few more days. He's body may be adjusting but if he seems discomfort like an upset belly or the poop is starting to make him rash move him back to the Nutramigen.

  • Changes in poop can be a negative reaction to the formula... I'd say he's not really doing so great as it seems on the Similac and see about switching him back.

  • I'd say the same. if he doesn't chg soon he's not adjusting to the new formula. There was a reason he was on that in the first place I'm gussing as my Gr-DD was, so maybe the chg really wasn't a good idea, Dr advise or not. I'd call the Dr. back and let him know and advise your going bk to the first formula, why let your baby suffer as well as your worry.
