If your infant has cow's milk allergy, your doctor will likely recommend a formula that is hypoallergenic, meaning it has been specially formulated to not cause allergic reactions in infants with cow's milk allergy.

Nutramigen with Enflora LGG and PurAmino hypoallergenic formulas are designed with your baby's health needs in mind. Both are nutritionally complete and can serve as key dietary sources as your baby grows. Here is a look at some of the many benefits provided by Nutramigen® formulas.

Benefits of Nutramigen with Enflora LGG Hypoallergenic Formula

Fast Management of Allergic Reactions

Benefits of Nutramigen with Enflora LGG Hypoallergenic Formula

Nutramigen with Enflora LGG is an extensively hydrolyzed, hypoallergenic formula that manages symptoms of cow's milk allergy fast. Because the cow's milk protein in Nutramigen with Enflora LGG is so thoroughly broken into tiny pieces (what's known as hydrolyzed), the immune systems of most infants with cow's milk allergy no longer see the protein as a threat. This is one reason why allergic reactions, including signs of colic, often ease within 48 hours† after a switch to Nutramigen with Enflora LGG.1

Babies Tolerate Cow's Milk Sooner

The probiotic LGG* or lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is a helpful bacteria that has been extensively studied in babies with cow's milk allergy.2After 12 months of consuming Nutramigen with Enflora LGG, 81 percent of babies with cow's milk allergy tolerated cow's milk.3 Previous research suggested that most children wouldn't outgrow cow's milk allergy until age five.4

Essential Fatty Acids Are Good for Developing Brains

In addition to LGG*, this Nutramigen formula also has omega-3 (DHA) and omega-6 (ARA) essential fatty acid levels patterned after breast milk. These nutrients have been shown to promote brain and eye development.5

Recommended for Infants with Various Allergies

Nutramigen with Enflora LGG is recommended for infants with mild-to-moderate cow's milk allergy symptoms, including reflux, diarrhea, constipation, gas, skin rashes, chronic cough, runny nose, and wheezing. It is also recommended for infants who have skin conditions like eczema due to cow's milk allergy, as well as infants who have a strong family history of multiple allergies to foods, including cow's milk, soy, eggs, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, and fish.6

A World Leader in the Management of Cow's Milk Allergy

Nutramigen was the first infant formula developed for babies with cow's milk allergy, and is the world's leading infant formula for the management of cow's milk allergy.7 This hypoallergenic formula has been clinically proven† in over 70 clinical studies, making it the most scientifically supported extensively hydrolyzed formula on the market.8

Benefits of PurAmino Elemental Formula

Gentle Enough for Even the Most Severely Allergic Infant

Although it's rare, a few infants experience severe reactions to cow's milk protein and need an even gentler hypoallergenic formula like PurAmino.9In fact, PurAmino is so gentle that 100 percent of infants with cow's milk allergy who were fed this formula in clinical studies experienced no allergic reactions or adverse events.10 That's because PurAmino contains no cow's milk protein. It is an elemental formula composed of amino acids, the compounds that form proteins.11

One Formula from Infancy through the Toddler Years

Babies who are doing well on PurAmino don't need to switch formulas as they grow because this amino acid-based formula is designed as a sole source of nutrition for infants up to six months, and as a major source of nutrition through age two.12

Fewer Allergy Problems throughout the Toddler Years

Infants with cow's milk allergy who are fed PurAmino throughout their first year have a lower incidence of allergic reactions, including wheezing, rashes and asthma, during their first three years.13

Essential Fatty Acids Are Good for Developing Brains

PurAmino meets expert-recommended levels and the worldwide average level of DHA in breast milk. These levels have been proven to improve mental and visual development and to support the immune system.14

Recommended for Severely Allergic Infants

An amino acid-based elemental formula like PurAmino is recommended for infants who react severely to cow's milk protein.15 These infants may experience serious breathing difficulties, break into hives, and even go into anaphylactic shock often within hours of consuming a milk-based product.16PurAmino also is recommended for infants who have multiple allergies to foods, including cow's milk, soy, eggs, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, and fish; as well as infants who have short bowel syndrome, intractable diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, and malabsorption.17

Happier Baby, Happier Mom

You will be amazed at the changes in your baby's temperament after you make the switch to a hypoallergenic formula like Nutramigen with Enflora LGG or PurAmino. You'll feel better knowing that your baby is getting great nutrition like that provided by routine infant formulas. Your infant will feel better because she is no longer having allergic reactions to cow's milk protein. This means fewer tears for you both.
