Hi all, my 7 week old is suspected of having CMPI and has had his formula (Bellamys) which he loves changed to a prescription formula (pepti junior) which he hates. They changed it due to the severity of his rash even though we have not yet been to the immunologist. We have had to wean him onto it by gradually increasing the ratio of pepti junior in his regular formula and now after 48 hours he is on 100% pepti junior. I feel horrible giving it to him as he loved his old formula and he definitely doesn't eat this one with the same vigour. Has anyone else used this formula? Will it help CMPI? Will he still grow and thrive on it? Also we are having to use hydrocortisone 1% until we get rid of the trigger has anyone else had experience with this is one so young. It has definitely made him more comfortable but I worry if it is harming him.
Apologies for all of the questions, first time mum so very new to this and very nervous.
