: I WAS WONDERING IF THERE WAS ANY PARENTS THAT HAVE USED THIS? CAN YOU TELL ME HOW YOU LIKE IT AND HOW LONG BEFORE YOU SAW A CHANGE IN YOUR CHILD. THANK YOU. ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE HELPFUL.
:My nine week old was placed on Neocate about two weeks ago for allergic collitis. He developed bloody stools at two weeks of age, and went from Similac to Nutramagin. This did not help. The GI specialist switched him to Neocate, and the blood has stopped, but now he is very uncomfortable with every bowel movement and passing gas. It is also very thin, and he looks to eat every three hours now, when before on the Nutramagin he would go 3-4 hours. The cost is outrageous, and the insurance will not cover it. I would appreciate any feedback from other parents whose children are on it, or were on it in the past.
