We are looking for fully hydrolized infant milk formula for my infant nephew who is allergic to cow's milk's protein. Would anyone know where to get this in SJ?
He was given 2 cans of Neocate infant formula (the amino acid has been removed from the cow milk) by a family friend who got them from overseas. Although soya milk is an alternative, the paediatrician advised that cow milk is the best after human's milk.

If anyone knows where to get this fully hydrolized infant milk formula, we would appreciate your input. Thank you.

Why don’t you ask the paediatrician ? :confused:

He/she should be the best person to advice which brand and where to get...

" My son has eczema since 2 months old when he started
taking ordinary formula milk. The pediatrician prescribe to
switch to Nestle NAN H.A.special formula for Hypoallergenic.
The eczema is very much in control now. "

" .... they put him on pregestimil, he came home on it but it tore his
stomach up something terrible and his reflux was out of control on it.
He had very slow motility and would spit up milk 5 hrs later. They
switched him to neocate and he tolerated that much better ... "


" Stay away from Nutramigen AA (Amino Acid)... this is new stuff.
It contains MSG (my son reacted badly to this) and costs around
$60/can. "

Neocate, made by Nutricia, is distributed by Somedico.
Nutrilon Pepti is also by Nutricia, but I don't think they bring it in.

" Despite knowledge of the different intended uses between
Neocate One Plus and Nestlé’s Peptamen Junior, Nestle
falsely represented that Peptamen Junior was “the same”
as Neocate One Plus. The false representations induced the
physician to authorize a substitution to the Nestle product.
Tragically, within seconds of ingesting Nestlé’s Peptamen
Junior, the young disabled child died in his father’s arms
from of a massive allergic reaction. "

Partially and extensively hydrolyzed formulas.

http://neocateusa.com/aaa_neocate/13798-protein-based-infant-formulas.html


Amino acid based formulas.

" However, recent studies utilizing sera from children with milk
challenge-confirmed hypersensitivity have suggested that caseins
are the most allergenic milk proteins. "

" The marked antigenic similarity between cow's and goat's milk
protein suggests that goat's milk is unlikely to be tolerated in most
children with genuine cow's milk protein intolerance. "

" .... up to 47% of milk allergic infants can have adverse reactions to soy. "


" The exact frequency of allergy to EHF (extensively hydrolyzed
formulas)is not known. However, it is speculated to be up to 19%.

" Partially Hydrolysed formulae contain peptides large enough
to cause allergic reactions to cow's milk protein and are not
recommended for the treatment of cow's milk allergy. "


" .... NAN HA 1, which is a 100% partially hydrolysed whey protein.
It offers better formula tolerance and is recommended for high-risk
infants before they show any sign of cow's milk allergy. It is not
suitable for the treatment of cow's milk allergy. "


" Neocate is the synthetic 100% amino acid based hypoallergenic
formulae available in New Zealand. It has very good taste, and
usually very well tolerated, but is very expensive. "

" Neocate is used to treat symptoms of persistent and severe food
allergy, such as:

• Multiple Food Protein Intolerance

• Allergy to extensively hydrolysed formulae

• Early onset food allergy with poor weight gain

• Allergic Colitis

• GER unresponsive to standard therapy "

My son drink soya milk (brand: Isomil) since born until 6 years old, he is not allergic to anything, just that my family doctor highly recommed it. When I ask her is soya milk contains all the necessaries for my baby? She answer "Does cow milk provide that? The best milk for your baby is breast milk from the baby's mother, cow milk is for baby cow. A baby cow growth to 100kg in the first month by drinking cow milk, does your baby need that?"

Wow, Tham, thank you very much for your extensive research and sharing here. I will forward this info to my sis for her to decide the way forward.

Thanks, Burntan. Soymilk would be the next alternative.

Ya, Franky, agree with you, it's gonna be expensive if we go with Neocate.

Sagamihara, the paediatrician can order Neocate from overseas for us
but that's an expensive solution. That's why we are hoping to find alternative sources.

Sorry I was away in Kalimantan.

Call Nestle's Public Relations Director Tunku Marina Badlishah at the HQ, or the Business Unit Manager of Infant Dietetics Group or ask your paedetrician to link you up with them. Nestle has a few "specialised" infant products (not on commercial sale but pescribed free to people who need them) for premature baby (Nesprem) and babies who have the symptoms you mentioned above. Their HQ has moved to The Curve... google their number... You can also ask for any of the Nutritional Reps to call on your doctor and you show up and these folks are also trained on these specialised products. Good Luck!

Missing second link in the first post.

Nestle's Good Start, a partially hydrolzed whey protein formula,
is available only in the US, but seems to have some good reviews.

Now called Gerber Good Start, since Nestle took over Gerber.
They also have it in ready made cans or packs.
