    Wait to see the paed, but it sounds like they might recommend something like AllerPro. Both my kids were CMPI babies, DD needed Neocate and DS did well on AllerPro. Honestly, it was much easier having the prescription formula as our pharmacy would just order it whenever we needed it. AllerPro has been a pain, it's really hard to get at the moment (although I do see stage 1 on the shelf occasionally). Most pharmacies only allow you to buy one or two tins at a time. Many times I have had to call several pharmacies and still had no luck getting it. I've often had to arrange to get some from a place 3hrs away.

    OK. saw the paed. Stool test will be performed to rule out virus or bacteria infection. This is related to his recent frequent poop episode. As for formula, he recommended Nan HA or karicare aptamil alpha(?). He puts a question at the alpha...so i don't know what it is! Anyone has any idea?

    I am not sure i want to go with Nan given that bub has so much trouble with nan comfort.

    Allerpro is extensively hydrolysed. So the cows milk protein is very broken down like a prescription formula. The HA is hypoallergenic and just broken down a bit more than normal formula.

    So should i try allepro or HA?

    Pead said if no improvement, neocate will be next. Some babies don't like allepro as i heard.

    Personally I think you go on your paeds advice. Perhaps call and clarify what they meant by the ?.
    That way you've gone along the course of action.

    Yep this.

    And in my experience bubs never like any of the hydrolysed formulas (so the prescription ones like neocate included). They all taste gross.

    This is what worries me. I would happily switch my ds to allerpro rather than go dairy and egg free for months but I don't want to risk getting him on a particular formula only to find I can't get hold of it. I guess the fact he doesn't like it at the moment has made the decision easier!

    I went to several pharmacies and grocery stores nearby yesterday just to have a check and see if it is very difficult to get allerpro and the aptamil HA. Well, one pharmacy has allerpro, the other one has HA but they will only get 3 tins in each time. Woollies always runs out of the HA for whatever reason. Or it has been cleared up every time they have new stocks. I have observed that for a few weeks now. I am not keen on nan HA because the iron content is a lot higher which DS has a history of constipation.

    I started DS on aptamil HA. He has been screaming for food between 2.5--3hrs. Is this normal for using this formula? He normally can go without food for 4 hrs with Nan comfort.
