Hi, I was just told by our doctor to switch our baby's formula to Enfamil Nutramigen due to an allegy to milk based formula. To my surprise, this hypo-allergenic formula is almost TWICE the price of the other enfamil formula we were using! Does anyone know of an alternative to enfamil nutramigen that they have had experience with? I don't want to experiment with my daughter, but could there be a less expensive alternative for us????

HI, my sympathies... I know target has a generic for just about all the enfamil formula's but I'm not sure they have one for the hypoallergenic nutramigen, but its worth looking into. we use the one that is the equivenant to gentlease and it is great, the labels are 100% compareable. I'm so glad we found this because formula is so terribly expensive, and I know nutramigen is way worse too. Good luck.

Thanks for all you advice, I will check out target and I will check with my insurance company to see if they can help out as well. If anyone else has any ideas, please post!

I used it with my son. I called it Liquid gold. It was so expensive. I think WIC will help with the cost.

Hi  we have a 7 month old that we recently switched to Alimentum after using Nutramigen for 5 months. We have 24-8 oz cans of Nutramigen if you are interested. We are from ohio but Ill send to you for free because we know how expensive the formula is and we just want someone to be able to use it. Let me know if interested.
