Neocate Users - HELP PLEASE!


My son has been diagnosed with Cow's milk protein allergy (no tests have been done but he had blood in the nappy, eczema and a stuffy nose).

He was diagnosed 6 weeks ago, and it has been a complete nightmare. Each day, he takes less formula and I don't know what to do, I walk around, sing, distract him and I get 3 oz in him... totalling about 15 - 18 oz a day. The dietician said I should aim for 24 which seems impossible, he just hates it.

We have tried drops of vanilla extract, giving it hot, cold, holding him in different ways, he smells it and turns his head and starts crying : (

Are there any other alternatives to Neocate? I hear Nutramigen AA tastes just as bad. Also, we have been referred to an allergist but I hear the results we'll get are not conclusive for young babies.... I was wondering if his test for soy came negative, if we should try Wysoy.

Anyway, sorry for the long post. I just don't know what to do to get him to drink more. He wakes up every 3 hours at night (i am guessing because he is hungry)... and keeps turning and tossing all night. I'm exhausted!

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!
