AMINO ACID FORMULAS: Nutramigen, Alimentum are partially hydrolyzed protein formulas. If your child doesn't tolerate them, next step would be to try extensively hydrolyzed amino acid based formulas like Elecare Jr (Abbott) or Neocate Jr (Nutricia) for ages 1 and up. They are expensive though....Best!

Mgt: I agree that a hydrolyzed formula can be used. I would like to know if your son is growing well, and if he has any GI disease? Was he born prematurely? Children who are allergic to multiple foods can continue to react to other foods not identified as yet. I would suggest keeping a food diary with symptoms, andseeing an Allergist for further testing.
