did anyone else's lo have diarrhea or very watery stools when starting a hypoallergenic formula, and if so, how long did it last or did it go away?

If you just switched over cold turkey, then you can expect some stomach upset. You should always cut it with whatever they are used to untill you are completely switched. BTW- what makes the formula hypoallergenic? What is the problem your little one is having. Our, son is 4.5 months and had to have the sensitive blend for a bit, but is now back on regular formula. Just curious.

our ds had an allergic reaction to his soy formula, and therefore, probably has an allergy to milk, as well, so we had to switch to the hypoallergenic kind cold turkey. he did great with it within 2 days all of his symptoms disappeared but now has VERY runny stools, pretty much diarrhea. we've added rice cereal (dr. suggested) to a couple bottles the past 2 days and it seems to help thicken things up a little. we are meeting with the dr. again tomorrow to discuss what we do next- allergy tests, etc.

My dd is 9 weeks and on alimentum. She could not tolerate regular formula or soy. Yes her stool is quite runny and green in colour and has been that way since the beginning. The formula is very broken down in proteins and there digests quicker so makes sense that stool is not as firm. She is much happier baby on it though. I was told not to try and transition back until she is 6 mos anyway.

My son is 4 months now and has been on Nutramigen since he was a month old. His stools are watery, but the formulas is also a lot thinner than your regular formula. It has helped him a lot. Once you add rice we have found that it gets better.
