the doctor recently changed my sons formula from 'life brand iron fortified' to 'nutramigen a+' becasue we worried of a milk allergy. at first he was really fussy and cranky on it. and wasnt sleeping much. now its been a day on it and he seems a lot better. he is finally naping in the day! :) 

just wondering how other babies reacted to a change to nutramigen a+?

glad he's adjusting well to the new formula. my two LO's were breastfed, but here's a bump!

My 1st son was born when I was 18. I bf him for 6 months. No one else I knew bf their babies and I really didn't even know anyone close who had had a baby in the last 5+ years. So I didn't know much about babies. I knew bfing was better but I didn't know how much better it really was. So I, selfishly, stopped bfing him at 6 months cuz I didn't feel like doing it anymore. Smh. He then started spitting up constantly and was very cranky. We had to go through so many formulas, the regular ones, the ones that are easier on the tummy, soy, etc...after over a month of my son suffering all because I didn't feel like bfing anymore we finally got him on nutramigen and he was so much better. That's what he stayed on till he was a year. I still feel guilty for my selfisheness and hate that I did that to him for no reason but I am so glad that the nutramigen helped him so much.

I wish I was able to bf him. when he was born two months premature they wisked him away to the warming table to make sure he survived. we didnt get any skin to skin when he was first born. I didnt get to hold him until he was 2 days old. and he was covered in wires and such, becaused he spent the first 3 weeks of his life in the nicu. and I spent 3 days before he was born on hospital bed rest. and then 6 days after he was born still in the hospital for observation. when I asked about bf with my ds nurses they said he cant yet but you can pump and we can feed him that through the hose. but when I asked where do I do that they said in post partum you will have a pump in your room, asked them there. I never got sent to post partum. and when I kept asking where do I pump in the hospital they would tell me the same thing. ask in post partum.... finally on the 4th day after he was born they finally told me where the pumps were for the nicu... I had trouble with my milk even coming in. (only would produce 0-5ml every 3 hrs or so, and I would try to pump every 1.5 hrs) I so wish I was able to but maybe with my next child... im glad nutramigen a+ helped with your son

 My niece is on that now and is much happier, too. It's much easier on their system. Glad they found something that worked for your son so quickly. :)
