Nutramigen® A+® and Pregestimil® A+® have a unique odour and taste due to the special protein source that makes the formula effective for babies with allergies. The casein hydrolysate is extensively broken down to be hypoallergenic.
A baby’s taste buds take time to develop in the early stages of life, therefore, we would not expect a young baby to refuse Nutramigen A+ based on taste alone.
Most babies accept the formula easily; some babies (particularly older babies) may take 3-5 days to become accustomed to the unusual taste. If this is your baby's first experience with the product, continue offering it as much as possible for several days. Sometimes, offering small, frequent feedings will help with this adjustment.
