This is a very expensive product, but it is also worth it. My daughter seems to have had problems digesting, pooping and breathing (of all things, I had to administer CPR on her a couple times) on my breastmilk and on all the other formulas I've tried, so her doctor prescribed this to her. I think this product smells like cat food but my daughter seems to love it. I heard from other parents they had a hard time switching to this formula because of the taste...Honestly I just think my princess is just an aggressive eater because I'm pretty sure this formula really does tastes as bad as it smells...BUT...a little after I switched to this formula the symptoms I seemed to be concerned about went away. She also goes through this formula much slower than the other ones I've tried. I do have to order mine via the pharmacy because it is very difficult to find. (Then I take it up to the front and use my WIC stamps because my medical will not reimburse me for this product). Any Kroger stores will let you order, and then take it from the pharmacy and let you pay for it up front. Most places will ask you to pay for it at the pharmacy and you can't use WIC stamps at the pharmacy. To caveat that - I go to the same pharmacy and every time they seem to be very confused about ordering this product for me. If I have a prescription, order it. It's that simple. Be prepared for people to have a hard time understanding this is considered a medical food and you cannot waltz into the formula aisle to pick it up willy nilly. They always tell me to check the baby aisle first. It's seriously easier to order online but if you are getting reimbursed for it via medical or WIC, they will not pay for the formulas you order online. I would not use this formula for your infant without a doctor's recommendation and perscription.

A day or two later after he started to take this formula my poor son got a horrible rash on his bottom. He was is so much pain I stop giving it to him. I am breastfeeding but do need a supplement. We are still in search for a good formula that does not gives him rashes and stop the blood in stool:(

Love this formula, we are mixing it with breast milk to help my baby gain weight. He is a Gastroschisis baby. It's hard to find to purchase in our area, we had to drive almost 80 miles the first time to find a store that sells it.

Rare liver disease... biliary atresia... 2 month amazing
from NY, NY
My daughter at 2 months was diagnosed with biliary atresia a rare liver disease and this is the formula that her GI doctors recommend... Although she disliked the taste (all formulas taste bad to us... they don't know the difference) she is now happily drinking it. It mixes better than the formula she was on before (similac senstive) and doesn't look powderish like similac. Not found in most places but enfamil will work with you and deliver too

This is ultimately baby food, but we our using it as a nutrient supplement for our 15 year old Chihuahua. The product that was sent to my pet was way to strong and was making her worse, so me and my wife were told by a friend to try this baby formula, as it had all the minerals she needed. It has been a life saver, and I had to purchase this product online because we I use to buy it stopped carrying it, and the last place I bought it online from sent it expired. This one from babies r us expires some time in 2016, as expected. Supper product...THANKS...

It does what it is supposed to do.
from Chicago, IL
I have a preemie and he had the worst time with tolerating feeds. He did not poop for almost 3 weeks until he was this formula. Then he started to go with some help. This formula smells horrible. The smell gets worse when you take out the extra calories that the hospital put in. Over all though it worked it did what it was suposed to do.

mom of alpha 1 baby
By mommy of 3
About Me Parent of Two or More Children
2 years ago my first son was born, at 8 weeks old after liver surgery and a 2 week hospital stay he was diagnosed with a liver disease called Alpha 1 Antitrypsin deficiency. He was only 5lbs at 2 months old, and one of the symptons of his disease is fat malabsorption. They started him on Pregestimil during his hospital stay and he was up to 7lbs by discharge day. He stayed on this formula for a year and it helped him grow and stay healthy. I had to have it specially ordered & mailed through my insurance but it was a lifesaver for my son & his health!

I have a preemie with short gut and pregestimil is the only formula he can eat, my complaint is the I have to special order it and pay shipping, or drive 20 miles to a store that says they sell it. So I pay just as much in gas as I would for shipping. I wish it was sold in more stores. Otherwise, it is a great formula for short gut babies :) Free samples would be appreciated, I have so many hospital bills from my baby spending the first 3 months of his life in the NICU.
