My daughter has a dairy allergy but now she's 18 months she's having oat milk, almond etc so no longer need the Nutramigen we have left. 3 unopened tins.
Perhaps you were like I was and would like to try your baby on it but your GP will only give you WySoy. We actually ended up on Neocate thanks to a friendly Mumsnetter who donated some Neocate, my little girl became a different baby, and then the Paediatrician agreed to give it to her.
Free to anyone who can collect from Winchmore Hill in North London.

Hi Nicola! My 9 month DD has just recently been diagnosed with CMPA. I'm just wondering when you introduced your LO to neocate? And how did your LO take to it (the taste especially)?

Hiya GingerMaman so sorry, we are moving house soon so I haven't logged in the last 2 weeks!
Ok, my DD2 was diagnosed with CMPA at 3 months - finally - and she was on Neocate from a couple of weeks after that. Altho not prescribed....the GP wouldn't give it as very expensive....it was only because I had got hold of some myself and proved that her symptoms had improved on it that I managed the consultant to prescribe it. So because she was so little she took to it well as she didn't really know any different. The taste is just disgusting but at 3 months their taste buds are not fully developed.
At 9 months I'm not sure how well it will go down....what I did was to mix it with existing milk slowly increasing the ratio from a small part Neocate to full Neocate.
DD2 was on it until about 12 months when they moved her onto the Nutrimagen but she didn't like it as had got used to Neocate! She thinks everything is yummy now in comparison! The Nutrimagen doesn't smell as bad as Neocate so if you would like the tins I have you are welcome.
