Allergic reaction to formula and gavision

HI (Sorry long)

wondering if anyone has any suggestions - my five month old dd is now at nursery three mornings a week and am self employed so was struggling to express in shop and have now run out of frozen milk this week so have moved her to formula for nursery now.

She has reflux so gets gaviscon with each feed, always has this with no problems when breastfeed. She is still sicky but not as much but something will always come up.

This week (mon)after nursery she came up in a rash all down her left arm and the back of her neck which then became large red swellings - they went overnight. Now today after nursery we have had the same thing but on her chest. Turns out to be in the place she has managed to hit herself with sick after a feed. So it is the mix of formula and gaviscon when sicked up causing it. We have used Hipp Orgnaic Powder this week but previously ready mixed Aptimil.

Is there a difference between ready madea powder am I going to have to blow all my money of ready made formula or is it worth trying a differnt powder.

All advise appreciated.

try re posting this on Allergies loads of helpful advice there.

Look for Misdee- her dd had a contact reaction to milk.

Mine is on hypoallergenic formula as dairy allergic.

might it be the hipp as opposed to the fact it is powder formula, if you have successfully used the A ready made - can you try the aptimil powder first and monitor?
(i don't have experience of allergies but that's what i would try!)

Thanks - will copy and paste there I know coudl be Hipp but another tenner on formula to throw away sticks a little especially as i have struggled to give up the feeding in the first place.

jai - do you have any friends who are ff who might be using aptimil powder - maybe you could 'borrow' a couple of feeds to try?

That would be a great idea - but no I was a bit late on having my second to all of them
