My ds, 10 mos, is on elecare formula. The ingredients seem to be awful- mostly corn syrup. Is there any other option that provides better nutrition?

In brief: Sure but why elecare

Elecare is often used in babies with food allergies .
.It is very helpful...Was this your choice or your drs. Recommendation? The choice of formula has many factors to consider. Can't really suggest without knowing more info.

In brief: Elecare formula

Please provide more info concerning the infant's nutritional history.
What other formulas have been tried? What medical problems does the infant have? Elecare is used for infants who cannot tolerate intact protein; it is composed of amino-acids, the building blocks of proteins, as well as many vitamins necessary for healthy development.
