My 10wo has been diagnosed with cows milk protein intolerance and my paediatrician has moved us into prescription formula.
She sent us away with sample tins and said to try Pepti-Junior first before moving onto Elecare if that doesn't work.
Does anyone have similar experience? How long did the Pepti-Junior take to work? Was it almost instantaneous or did it take awhile? It's been 3 days now and my DD shows no improvement, wondering if we should move her onto Elecare.
I will ring my paediatrician tomorrow for advice but I know doctors can be hard to get hold of so just wanting to see how everyone else got on.

Pepti-Junior - how long until it worked?

My son was diagnosed at 6 months (his symptoms were just lots mucus in poo with occasional blood and I kept getting told not to worry) and I put him on aptimil allerpro when I weaned him at 11 months. He's still on it now even though he seems to have outgrown his allergy.
It's probably not much help as I don't know much about the different formulas but allerpro seemed to work for us. Also just to note I was breastfeeding and went dairy free and they recommend 2 weeks for things to get out the system. However it took at least 6 weeks for the symptoms to disappear and when he accidentally had a biscuit with milk in at about 9 months he had mucus in his poo for 3 weeks. So it just goes to show that the inflammation can take a while to settle so things might take a while to improve. X

We had to do at least 2 weeks of a trial of new ones until we found the right one. That is unless it wasn't tolerated. Eg. DD threw up pepti jnr a lot and didn't tolerate it.
It takes a while for the inflammation to settle down.

I think you need to give it a good 2wks for her belly to adjust to a new formula before you can call it a fail or success.
My DD2 was on elecare and it dud take a few weeks before we saw an improvement in her
