Product Description

For Food Allergies and Colic Due to Protein Sensitivity.While sensitivity to the protein in both milk-based and soy-based baby formulas is uncommon, it's good to know there is a trusted alternative. If your baby's digestive system is especially sensitive and requires an extra-gentle baby formula, ask your physician about Similac Expert Care Alimentum Hypoallergenic Formula. Similac Expert Care Alimentum starts to reduce colic symptoms in most babies in just 24 hours. It's easy for sensitive babies to digest and its protein is broken down into tiny pieces to virtually eliminate allergic reactions in most babies who are allergic to cow's milk protein.

Signs of Protein Sensitivity: Some babies have long crying spells and cannot be easily comforted. This excessive crying or fussiness is sometimes called colic, and may be due to a sensitivity to the protein. Other symptoms such as severe diarrhea, rashes, and even sleeping problems also can be caused by protein sensitivity. As with all feeding decisions during the first year, consult your baby's health care professional.

*Colic symptoms due to protein sensitivity

**Based on a clinical study with Similac Expert Care Alimentum Ready To Feed without DHA and ARA.

My baby has eczema she often had a rash.After she started drinking this formula her skin is so different. At first she didn't like to drink her formula but now she is 6 months and she loves her formula she is also gaining weight.
It has an awful smell and taste but after a few days they get used to it.My baby started drinking this formula when she was 2 months and she is now 6 months and it is working GREAT.

Our Daughter has bad reflux and cronic spit-ups. We saw our Dr's about this issue, and they recommended this formula. Ok, after the first bottle of this stuff, my daughter had a hard time falling asleep for her nap. I went ahead and read up on this formula, and it has suger cane in it. No wonder she had a hard time falling asleep! Second bottle, she started to fuss and get more antsy. Third and forth bottle, she was full out crying and screaming in pain. Next day, she had runny stools, and still crying in pain.

One good thing about this formula, our daughter's spit ups did decrease a lot.

I know this formula isn't good for our daughter, but it may be good for others. The price isn't worth it too.
We decided to go back to Enfamil and started using Gentlease instead (Dr's recommended). So far so good :)

    Comments about Abbott Nutrition 1010224 Similac Expert Care Alimentum Formula Powder - 16 Ounce:

    My 5 month old who is on acid reflux medication would spit up all day long and this was while she was on the sensitive formula she also would not sleep through the night after speaking with her doctor they gave us a sample of the expert care and it has changed our lives we are no longer dealing with spit up all day long and the first few days on this formula she started sleeping though the night. It is very hard to mix because it leaves clumps but we bought the munchkin formula hand mixer and it takes the clumps right out of the formula and will mix very fast. We also put the formula in a storage container because when you open the can we were spilling formula out trying to get the scoop because the handle on the scoop is so long it was getting stuck

    Mother of 2. 1st born really easy but 2nd born is colic baby. Had no idea from birth to 6 months old she was having trouble with all sorts of milk (brestmilk, Similac Advance, Similac Sensitive, Similac Soy) But THANK GOODNESS for Alimentum!!! TOTALLY LIFE SAVER!!! No more projectile vomit, no more screaming, less laundry to do, more sleep now! yay! She's gaining the weight back up now and growing in height now. She's doing awesome 'cause before she wasn't gaining or growing in height 'cause she kept throwing up all the milk. This is totally worth it. Thanks to my Doctor for reccemending this. Check with your Dr. about this 1st.

      Bought this product because it was supposed to be the Cadillac of formulas and help with protein sensitivities. It smelled and tasted awful but my son drank it anyway. He drank a total of 6 oz over two different feedings and was screaming in pain most of the night and much gassier than on plain soy or milk based formulas. Not worth the money for me, that's for sure!

      Comments about Abbott Nutrition 1010224 Similac Expert Care Alimentum Formula Powder - 16 Ounce:

      Both of my twin boys were colicky and my husband and I were exhausted. They were on 5 different formulas before trying the Alimentum. Our boys started improving after the alimentum was in their system for about 24 hours. The constant crying, wretching, projectile vomiting, spitting up and diarrhea completely ceased after about 48 hours on this formula. We eventually tried the competitors brand of hypoallergenic formula after receiving a some samples from the Product Representative at our Peds office. About 12 hours after starting it, our boys began spitting up constantly, and became extremely cranky again. We put them back on the Similac Alimentum and it has truly been a lifesaver for my family. We were so frustrated having to watch our boys endure the pain that they were experiencing. A big plus is that we just found out that our insurance will cover it at 100% thru our "Durable Medical Equipment". If your little one has to use this formula due to milk/soy protein allergies (which we eventually discovered to be our sons' issues), it is possible for your insurance to cover. I had to do a lot of research and spent hours on the phone getting the answers that I needed, but it has been worth it. It will be shipped to my doorstep monthly! It was costing us about $90 a week (for twins, a can generally lasted the 2 of them 2 1/2 days) and we were willing to pay it because it has helped our sons so much. Cost means nothing when your babies are not miserable.

        My son was spitting up every day all day and his doctor just wouldnt listen because he didnt appear to have gas or to cry alot .. I changed doctors and she immeadiately switched his formula to alimentum and within an hour his cheeks were rosy and red and no more spitting up !! It was amazing. He went from throwing up goodstart , 8-10 times a day to a few drops of spit here and there a few times a week.. Definately worked for him!!!

        Our son is now 9 weeks old and up until last week would cry all day and night, spit up more than he would put down, and was not sleeping well. It turns out he could not handle the proteins in either the milk or soy based formulas. After about two days on the Alimentum, he is smiling and laughing! He eats well, holding it ALL down, and now sleeps eight hours at night! He also had a rash on his face that never really cleared up since he was about 3 weeks old, but now it is gone and his skin is crystal clear!

        Comments about Abbott Nutrition 1010224 Similac Expert Care Alimentum Formula Powder - 16 Ounce:

        Our daughter was put on this by her pediatrician at 3 weeks old because of painful gas and constipation along with eczema- sign of a milk allergy. I finally put my foot down after hearing for the 100th time that the gas "was normal for a newborn". I get normal.... Painful and both of us in tears is not normal.
        I am confused by the reviewers giving it one star because it smells bad. Does it smell bad? Yes. But, we got over that very quickly once we saw how much better our daughter felt within 24 hours of feeding this to her. It mixes fine, you just have to shake a little bit more vigorously. We use the Dr. Brown's pitcher and mix it up that way. The plunger helps break it up.
        Yes, it is expensive, very expensive. I have read that some insurances will cover the cost. Ours did not, but we are lucky enough to have a pediatrician who gave us 4 full cases of 8 oz samples. And if you sign up with Similac online, they send you $5.00 off coupons from time to time. You can use the coupon on the Alimentum, so that helps!
        We are hoping that once our daughter reaches 3-4 months old, we will be able to start weaning her off of the Alimentum back to regular formula. But for the time being this is just fine.
