first off I nursed until my son was 7months had to stop due to severe stomach problems, this formula smells better than others we had tryed, he would only drink 3-4ozs at first bc it was different but over all it seems to help him which means alot... the only problem we have is NO ONE IN OUR COUNTY OR NEAR US CARRY IT! So it was very hard to get we ended up ordering it monthly!

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:(

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Pregestimil Powder Formula - 16 Ounce:

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.

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Pregestimil Powder Formula - 16 Ounce:

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.

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Pregestimil Powder Formula - 16 Ounce:

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!

Best Uses

  • Preemies

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Pregestimil Powder Formula - 16 Ounce:

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.

My son ended up needing this after we found out he has a rare liver disease and has trouble absorbing fats. At first he didn't take to it at all and almost refused to eat it. But he ended up getting used to it and he loves it now.

        Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Pregestimil Powder Formula - 16 Ounce:

        My grandson had a life threatening intestinal problem requiring surgery. Total parenteral nutrition was required for some months which kept him alive but also caused some liver problems as he could not be given any milk orally. When he could be fed breast milk he remained very jaundiced and did not gain weight as his liver could not deal with the long chain fatty acids in breast milk. When he was given pregestemil by the liver specialist he started to gain weight and he was no longer jaundiced. Pregestemil contains medium chain fatty acids which his liver could process.It saved his life. God bless whoever developed it.

        Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil Pregestimil Powder Formula - 16 Ounce:

        When my son was 2 months old he was diagnosed with a severe milk protein allergy. His stomach lining was torn severely causing bloody diapers and lots of pain. We had tried nutramigen and aulimentum and many other kinds with no success. Finally after a few days in the hospital his doctor suggested this formula. After a week of using it he was a completely different baby! He started sleeping through the night, smiling, laughing and barely cries. It's been a lifesaver. The only thing I don't like about it is that it smells really bad and doesn't mix well unless its already warm water. It also can only be bought online, which I don't like. I wish it came in larger containers.

            My lady found this at the pharmacy. We were trying to figure why she was projecting her formula and food. When she had only food, she didn't throw up. Reading the ingredients of every formula we saw, they had coconut oil. Since I am allergic to coconut, it made perfect sense. This was found by accident, but after 3 days on pregestimil, I was happy and she has been enjoying her bottle for the last 4 months now. Check your allergies for nuts, you'll be glad you did!
