  • ~~ALIMENTUM PROTEIN HYDROLYSATE WITH IRON~~FROM THE MAKERS OF SIMILAC

    Mar 12, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Helps to reduce the symptoms of "colic" in babies diagnosed with a protein allergy.
    Cons: Very expensive in price; use with the advice of a pediatrician only.

    Summary: While there is little debate that breastmilk is ideally the perfect form of nutrition for newborn infants, sometimes new parents are either unable to breastfeed successfully, are in need of an artificial means of supplementation on occasion, or ... read more

    Pros: Worked wonders: contented baby!
    Cons: Like everyone has said, the expense, but so totally worth it since it works!
