Colin just got put on this formula (offically labeled colicy) I do have WIC, but it doesn't cover all the formula needed for the month. I can't financially afford more than 2-3 12oz cans a month of this. I know it's Lacto-free hypoallergenic, do you think it would be OK to use Enfamil lacto-free when I run out? It's half the price?

maybe, maybe not. Nutramigen is hypoallergenic and the protiens are broken down so baby doesn't have issues with milk allergy.

does your baby have colic? My son had colic and and lactose free did help him. However Sadie has a sensitivity to milk protiens and would spit up regular, even lactose free formula really bad, actually she vomited it. She keeps down Good Start (but makes her constipated) and Gentlease and Nutramigen (these don't make her constipated).

So I guess you could try the lactose free and if it works great, if not I'd probably stick with the Nutramigen. It ususally isn't forever that you need to keep baby on it, only a few months until their tummy gets a little more mature. Besure to ask your Ped why the change and not just change it yourself. If baby has a milk allergy you really do need the hypoallergenic formula (or possibly soy but most babies allergic to milk are also allergic to soy - Sadie is).
