Corn maltodextrin is corn syrup. My daughter is 5 months and is finally on a formula that doesn't make her sick. First I used good start and at 9 days old I switched her straight to soy. Her stomach was making the most horrible loud noises! After a couple weeks on soy she started to scream when placed flat on her back. She would flail her arms open and look as though someone just dropped her. Then grab her own face and dig her nails in for something to hold on to. She would also throw up about 1-2 oz for every 3 oz she drank. That was severe GERD. So I had the dr switch her to Alimentum. She was a new baby and for the first week was fine! Then the throwing up started again. Went to the GI. They had me put rice cereal in every bottle. Huge difference! She kept most down of every bottle and seemed happier! A few weeks later she went back to the GI. Her gas would make her scream 2-3 times a day. I tried gas drops. Only worked for an hour. The GI suggested mylanta. Worked great for the gas. Made her throw up again. Went to the GI again, this time saw a different dr in the office. This dr looked at her extremely loose bowel movement and immediately knew she had an issue with corn! She switched her prescription to LIQUID ALIMENTUM. And gave me samples. After the first 3 days, NO GAS, NO SPITTING UP, NO PAIN, NO LIQUID POOP! It's been almost 4 weeks and she is doing SO WELL!! After my research I've discovered many things about infant formula that made me sick to my stomach! Corn syrup is just part if it! Nutrimigen has MSG!!!! As far as I know all powder, non-milk based formulas, have corn/corn syrup. Makes NO SENSE!! Why would a baby who can't handle milk, be able to handle the gassiness of a corn product?! I wish more than anything I had been able to nurse, I wanted to so badly! She has IUGR. Among other issues. Wasn't latching to anything properly and after a day finally latched to a bottle. I couldn't pump, nothing came out. :-( I hope from now on that she will be as healthy as possible, even with her issues. If you can't get their food right, nothing else goes right either! And thank god my insurance is covering the formula! The liquid is $10-13 a bottle which is 32oz. Over $350 a month!
