Hello! My son is also on Nutramigen! He was also on a fortifier with BM, but developed a milk allergy and I couldn't nurse him at all any more. So, nutramigen was the answer (for now anyway). His stools changed drastically too and smell equally as horrible. If you read the ingredients...there is vegetable oil in it...pretty much one of the first (if not the first) ingredient. So, that may explain the oily stuff. My sons have been varied from green, yellow, and brownish and pasty, seedy and claylike. He also doesn't go as often and when he does, it really bothers him, and he strains and pushes and then it is explosive! He has also gotten a REALLY bad rash and has had it for over a week. I am not sure if it is from the formula or not, considering it is hypoallergenic. I hope this formula works for your son. My son is 10 weeks and was born at 31 weeks gestation. Good luck!:)
Well, I can definitely sympathyze with the massive explosions. My little one wasn't quite as early as that. We opted to deliver him at 34 weeks due to unexplainable heart variables. It turned out to be the right decision, despite the issues going on now. I know the formula is working. He was vomiting and had a rash on his face. The rash is totally gone (replaced by baby acne, lol) and his vomiting is down to only about 3-5 times a week, instead of 3-5 times a DAY. It also doesn't come out his nose anymore. That makes us BOTH happy. I forgot to mention above that he's been running a low grade fever (around 100) ever since he got his shots. It went away for the day on Saturday and then came back, so I don't know if its from the shots or not. I have a lot of expressed BM stored in the freezer. I thought about putting him back on that for a day or so to see if his stools change back, but I'm leaning toward it not being from the formula, because we TOTALLY changed him over a week before his stools changed. Oh, you said your sons stools smell really bad also. Is it kind of a rotten egg smell, or no? His smell VERY strongly of rotten egg.
