In Reply to: I need Neocate Formula..Can you help? posted by Jody on October 07, 2003 at 20:35:29:
My son had the same blood in the stool with me hursing him even though I was not eating any of the alergens (boring diet!!) His doctor just put him on the Neocate and it is VERY expensive. There is no way we can afford it, but after he spent the first month of his life in the NICU we will do anything to keep him healthy. Our insurance won't cover the regular Neocate, but if the Doctor prescribes it with Microlypids they will cover in under major medical. My doctor is willing to prescribe it that way if it gets it covered, you might check into your insurance and see if they have the same option. I have also seen it on EBAY.
: I am in need of Neocate formula...I also would like to know if anyone would share there experience with there infant on this formula! I have a preemie that started on Alimentum however the blood in the stool has not went away yet! After many stool cultures the Doctor has consulted a specialist and they want me to switch him to Neocate! I have to special order this formula it is very expensive! So with missing work to have the baby 7 weeks early and being in the hospital for 2 weeks trying to stop labor, I am in a jam financially! As you all must know having a baby is a big expense in itself...but you just never know what is going to happen! Thanks for listening and if you can help at all I would love to hear from you firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks Jody
