Transitioning from Nutramigen with Milk Protien Allergy

My 10 month old son was diagnosed with milk protein allergy and egg allergy. I am looking ahead to when I will need to transition him off of Nutramigen to some sort of milk. If I weren't so struggling so much financially I would consider keeping him on it for a few more months, but if there is an alternative I can use, I need to try. What can I use in place of nutramigen? The last time I tried to move to another formula I tried Prosorbee, he became horribly constipated from it. He was on the changing table screaming because the bowel...

Any Other Moms Have Babies on Nutramigen with Rice Cereal and Zantac?

My 4 month old baby girl has has acid reflux since she was born. We tried all sorts of things but what seemed to work was the combination of Zantac twice a day and Nutramigen. She was eating like a champ 24-30 oz a day (4-6oz at each feeding) every 3 hours. She rarely spit up. It's probably just coincidence but I took her into the dr for her 4 month check up last week and she got a round of shots. The next day she threw up her bottle and ever since then she hasn't eaten the same. She sometimes won't eat and she is spitting up more. I...

Formula and Constipation

My question is everyone's experience with formula and if their babies get constipation. My first son got constipated and then blood in stools. Now my second son has been constipated off and on since we brought him home 3 weeks ago. I currently breatsfeed for 10 minutes or more on each breast and then supplement with 3-4 ounces of formula (I do not produce enough milk to exclusively breastfeed - my 3 sisters have all had same problem) When we brought him home - 3 days later we had to give him a suppository. We have done the tummy rubs...
