Specialty formula: Alimentum is a specialty formula used in infants with digestive difficulties. If your doc recommended alimentum due to a problem that your daughter has, contact that doctor right away for further care & advice. If you selected alimentum on your own, it may just be that any change at all is upsetting her. For now, switch back to breast until you can discuss in detail with her pediatrician.
