Hi ladies


I noticed that some of you are formual feeding after breastfeeding in part to low weight gain, digestion issues etc..


If you have tried breastfeeding, moved to fomula and now have to use specialized formulas such as alimentum (sp?) you may be able to have your insurance company cover the cost.


A friend of mine had this problem and with a lot of perseverance, a letter from the doctor stating that after trying every other type of feeding it was medically necessary for her to use the special formula and a prescription for it she got the insurance company to cover the cost of the formula.
