Which formula is better or worked for your child? I need to put my daughter on one of these, but I'm not sure if it's similac sensitive because it's milk based or the nutramigen because it's hypoallergenic.

What can I do next?

I used the Nutrimigen and it smells soooo bad!! I was trying to resolve tummy upset issues and settled on Gerber Gentle. That worked for us. I treid the Similac sensitive too, but didn't see much result with that one.

I have not used the other, but my son thrived on sensitive. Yes, it's milk...but it's lactose free. Unless your child has a true milk allergy, lactose free is good for kids with milk issues.

I know my preemie brother used the Similac Sensitive, and had no problems with it... I have no clue about the other one.

Nutramigen!!! We loved it and that was after we tried the others first...

LOL but it does smell like potatoes :)

Sim Sensitive is milked based, but it is lactose free. Sometimes little tummies have a hard time breaking down lactose, but told by our ped that babies rarely have milk allergies, despite everyone thinking they do.

Loved...loved the nutramigen...It was my saving grace.......Kids did so well on it. Then at 6 months old I went back to regular Enfamil with my youngest.
