Is this something to worry about??
MSG in our baby's formula? Its the highest in Hypoallergenic formulas like Nutramigen and Alumentum.... Heres the website I was reading... http://www.westonaprice.org/children/msgformula.html "You will note that the level of neurotoxins found in the hypoallergenic formula was far greater than the level of neurotoxins found in the other formulas. In reviewing the literature on hypoallergenic formulas, we have found short-term studies that concluded that hypoallergenic formulas are safe because babies tolerated them and gained weight. However, we have not seen any long-term studies on the safety of hypoallergenic formulas. We believe that well designed long term studies would demonstrate that infants raised on hypoallergenic formulas, as compared to infants who are breastfed or fed on non-hypoallergenic formulas, will exhibit more learning disabilities at school age, and/or more endocrine disorders, such as obesity and reproductive disorders, later in life. Long-term studies on the effects of hypoallergenic formulas need to be done. "

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
great........................

This scares me now. Ugh, just when I think there is hope. I am googling, trying to find some sort of research on this.

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including engi.nowaira.net, engi@nowaira.net, Engi@nowaira.us, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
That is pretty scary. I never knew why, other than possibly the high content of corn in the elemental formulas, but Meggy always reacted worse to them.

Thanks for sharing.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Worry? No, it won't do you any good. It's kind of like medicating the babies and reading the side effects. You have no choice. I mean, what's the alternative? Let the baby suffer and get hernias and stuff?

It definitely is not a good thing and you wonder what's the point of putting it in there. You might could even write some letters to somebody (I don't know who). ugh.

I just called Neocate and spoke to the nutritionist there. She said there is no MSG in it. It is not listed in the ingredients. This is true. I asked if there were any long term studies on the use of it and she said no. It has been around for 16 years...so I think if something was horribly wrong with it, it would have shown up some? No?

Adriane Reese 05/16/07; seemingly healthy when born; diagnosed with MSPI, severe Reflux, Apnea, Ashtma, Epilepsy, and severe food allergies(rice, corn, milk, soy, eggs, oats, wheat, beef, chicken, squash, pumpkin, avocado, etc.);On apnea monitor, seems to be tolerating RCF w/carbohydrate mixed in; on Zyrtec, Xopenex, Prevacid
Thanks for calling about it. One less thing to worry about. Not to mention how unfair that would be to these lo's that need it. I mean really. You give them something to save their lives or keep them nourished and it has some other side effect.

The ingredients to look for are..... -glutamic acid -aspartic acid -L-cysteine these are the neurotoxins. Looks like Nutramigen is the worst. :o( Will I gave Will one ounce of Similac Sensitive, so far no projectile puking....keeping my fingers crossed.

If you take those and use wikipedia, you will see they are amino acids. I think the people starting these ideas are trying to start something and get people deeply upset.
Check with your
doctor first!
