Nutramigen and Alimentum

Alimentum is a very hypo-allergenic formula from the same company which makes Similac.  Nutramigen is a very hypo-allergenic formula from the same company which makes Enfamil.  The proteins in the formula are broken down (pre-digested), so they can not cause an allergic reaction.  They are very good formulas for any baby from 0-12 months of age.  They are very good formulas to try if you are allergic to a cow's milk formula and a soy milk formula (which affects about 1% of infants).  They cost much more than regular formulas.
 
 
 
Nutramigen AA is one of the most hypo-allergenic formulas available.  It can be tried if you are allergic to both regular Nutramigen and Alimentum.  The proteins in the formula are broken down to the level of amino acids (remember high school/college chemistry), so it is extremely rare to be allergic to this formula.  It is EXPENSIVE.
