Now intolerant to Nutramigen AA!

Loose stools can take time following gastroenteritis. I would imagine now that her stools are settled she could have nutramigen again without issues.

Thanks for the replies.

I have started giving her koko and oatly, both of which she seems to enjoy. I'm making her porridge etc with it and her bedtime bottle has been a 50/50 mix of that and nutramigen and so far her stools have stayed normal. Such a relief every time she dirties her nappy and I realise its all contained!

Not planning on reintroducing cows milk just yet smile

Is your DD allergic to soya? The only thing I can think of is that Nutramigen AA does contain soya oil. Now, normally most people allergic to soya can still have soya oil as the refining process removes almost all of the protein. However, I do know that a small number of parents have said that their children react even to the tiny amounts of refined soya oil. Neocate does not contain soya oil so it might be worth asking to try that. A word of warning though, it can be very difficult to get children to drink Neocate due to the taste, especially in older babies/children. Given that your DD is nearly 1, it might be better to just try using something like oat milk or Koko coconut milk on cereal and in cooking as well as the odd cup during the day (if she'll drink it) rather then trying to switch to a new prescription formula that might be very difficult to get used to at her age.

Whatever you decide to do, please do NOT reintroduce cow's milk until you've seen the specialist and don't give your DD rice milk (unsuitable for under 5s) or goat's milk (too similar to cow's milk). Good luck

Could you try another amino acid based formula such as neocate?

If your dd can tolerate soya alpro do a 1+ milk which is quite good, my dd2 loves it. I have heard good things about koko coconut milk too but it really depends on what your dd can eat/ drink.
I think oatly is good too although mine didn't really like the taste unless it was mixed with nesquik.

DD is nearly one and has been on nutramigen aa since a tiny baby with no problems. 3 months ago she caught a tummy bug which gave her d&v. This cleared in a few days but ever since she has had very runny stools which are so bad I cannot contain them in any nappy.

She has been tested for all infections and is clear so I assumed it must be something she cannot tolerate in her diet. I've kept a food diary and there didn't seem to be any pattern. The nappies continued to cause us lots of problems when out and about, distressing for us both.

I noticed that she often had a 'pooplosion' soon after a bottle but thought it couldn't possibly be her nutramigen as there is nothing in it to react to! But with nothing left to try I stopped her milk a couple of days her poo is solid and is once a day. I don't know what to do!

Doc has referred me to a paed as he had no advice whatsoever, HV said to try her with cows milk but if that didn't work she had no idea either!

I can't just stop her milk! Is there anything else she an drink and has anyone heard of a baby suddenly not being able to tolerate nutramigen AA?

I feel so sad when we go out with friends and their babies are exploring with all foods and I'm constantly keeping my baby off something as part of our 'investigations' sad
