How to introduce nutramigen?

DS has been prescribed nutramigen. I've been warned it's pretty manky so I'm wondering about weaning him onto it gradually?

I'm thinking I could reduce the scoops of Aptamil by one each time and sub them with the nutramigen. Do you reckon this would work?

He's been given it because of his severe reflux and he is 12.5wks old. Thank you!

I think your plan sounds like a very good one. At 12.5 weeks your DS's taste buds won't be very well developed, so it may not taste as grim to him. But I've heard from other mums whose DCs have been weaned onto Nutramigen that gradually increasing the number of scoops is the best way. Good luck!

That's what we did and it worked well. Good luck!
