My little one, Grayson has just been diagnosed as being "most likely" allergic to cows milk protein. We had a GI scope done about a week ago because he was having issues gaining weight. They instructed us to use Nutramigen formula which does not contain cows milk but still offers enough protein. Here is my dilemma: Grayson is an awesome eater but even before the new formula, it was difficult to get him to drink his dairy toddler formula. He absolutely loathes the nutramigen. I know I can get all of his required nutrients through food. He loves kidney beans, chicken (even livers), olives, fruits, vegetables etc... If I can get him his required calories including vitamins, proteins, calcium and iron through food feedings; can I go that route? I am posting here because it is the weekend and this Friday was his first attempt at the nutramigen. Are there other things in formula that he is missing out on? It would so much easier for us to provide him with his nutrition through food and keep his liquids to water and occasional juices. What are others thoughts on this?
