similac advance ha

My baby was on SMA for two weeks when he developed a severe rash.My paed tested him and diagnosed soya and cow milk allergy.She then suggested I give him Similac Advance HA.His been drinking this milk but his winds are very smelly both top and bottom.His stools are green and runny and also very smelly.I did not have this problem with the SMA or S26.I have mentioned this to my Paed and she said that I shoyuld give him 5 drops of Reuteri twice a day.Even this has done nothing after using it for 5 days.Could there be something else that is wrong ?
What do I do now?

The Simulac Advance HA is an excellent formula for cow's milk allergic babies. It is what is known as a highly modified formula and the cow's milk protein has been significantly changed. It does not smell particularly good and it does not taste very nice either but if your baby takes it that is good. Your baby's stools may be rather green and loose. The important thing is that your baby gains weight and grows well. This needs to be checked regularly by your paediatrician. I would not advise the Reuteri drops for your baby as this may cause his stools to be even looser than before.

Hi, what do I give my baby if she just does not want to drink her milk, shes on nan1, her weight hasnt improved as it suppose to, sometimes we force her to atleast drink some milk. she was on nan 1 then nan AR (as per the pead) because she used to bring up her entire feed, but that stopped, but now its the refusing milk. please assist if u can. she passes stools once a day sometimes she skips a day but when she does she cries as if its painful. her sleep times are a bit irregular, sometimes 4hrs, 10min not exact times but estimates, im sure thats because of her feeds but when she wakes she sometimes fights, she either wants or does not want her feed. thanks
