Product Information

Enfamil PurAmino Powder

PurAmino is an iron-fortified, hypoallergenic, amino acid-based infant formula for the dietary management of infants and toddlers with severe cow's milk protein allergy, not effectively managed by an extensively hydrolyzed formula. PurAmino is also indicated for the dietary management of infants and toddlers with multiple food protein allergies.

PurAmino is designed to provide a sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months and provide a major source of nutrition through 24 months of age, when indicated. Normally, in feeding infants, gradual introduction of solid foods after 4-6 months of age is an important developmental as well as nutritional step.

In cases of severe and multiple food allergies or intolerances, PurAmino is sometimes continued as a milk substitute in the diet of children. This and similar supplemental use of PurAmino in the diet beyond 24 months of age may make a significant contribution to maintenance of good nutrition in such patients. When PurAmino is used as a milk substitute, the total calcium content of the diet should be assessed.

Extended use of PurAmino (or other infant formulas) as a sole source of diet is most appropriately monitored by physicians and nutritionists on a case-by-case basis, with attention to developmental as well as nutritional implications of such a dietary regimen.

Product Features:

  • Hypoallergenic, gluten free, dairy free
  • Nutritionally complete, iron-fortified
  • Can be sole source of nutrition up to age 6 months
  • Can be major source of nutrition through 24 months
  • Dietary reference intakes include a recommendation for fiber for >12 months of age

      It took 2 months for the doctors to figure out what was going on with our daughter. We tried 5 different formulas and a ton of meds and she still cried all the time, was extremely gassy and had 13-14 stools a day. Within 2 feedings with Puramino, we had a smiling happy baby girl! Complete life saver!

        Comments about Enfamil PurAmino Powder Formula - 14.1 oz:

        My daughter was diagnosed with Intact Protein Allergy very early on and was put on Elecare, an Amino Acid based formula. She was on this formula from about 1 month to 4 months. Around 4 months of age she began to refuse to eat. Her intake was down to 17oz a day, this was not an easy 17oz either. GI Dr., said that around this time babies begin to develop taste buds and quite frankly these formulas taste terrible, very metallic tasting. He gave us Elecare Vanilla Jr to add to her Elecare infant to help mask the taste, no luck. We tried adding Splenda, no luck. We went to Neocate, another amino acid based formula, than began adding Neocate Vanilla Jr, Neocate with Splenda, still no luck. Finally he gave us Puramino, her intake went to 22oz, than 24oz, than 26oz. She is now steadily at 26-29oz a day at 5 months. I noticed the increase from 17oz to 26oz within a 1 week time period. This formula is not as metallic tasting and has almost a oily film, however, it still tastes horrible, but she drinks it! All of it! Maybe its the oily film that forms a coating in her lining, maybe its the non metallic taste, I have no idea. I'm just happy she enjoys it. I would cringe at feeding time, and now its become a joy and I'm happy to see her so contently eating.
        If you experience what I have, Puramino is worth a try.
        She is also on Gelmix formula thickner, which helped with Reflux.

            Comments about PurAmino Powder Formula - 14.1 oz:

            I have been breastfeeding my 8 month old exclusively and have been cutting a lot of foods out of my diet due to his sensitivities/intolerances/allergies. Since there are 3 amino acid based formulas (Elecare, Neocate, PurAmino) I ordered a container of each to see what my son prefers/tolerates the best. He wouldn't even have a sip of the Elecare even after a month of trying here and there, twice he drank about 1/2 ounce of PureAmino but then finished 9 oz of Neocate on the first trial! I agree with him that Neocate smells and tastes the best or shall I say the least vile?! Aside from that I realized PureAmino contains MSG and GMO ingredients while Neocate doesn't. I don't understand why diapers.com doesn't carry Neocate.

            My almost 4 month old baby had troubles since day 9, she would start crying at 9 pm until 4 am every day. At 26 days they found she had acid reflux and milk protein allergy. We tried Nutramigen and it didn´t work, finally after 7 different formulas and a living hell trying to breastfeed our gastroenterologist suggested we tried PURAMINO (they started selling it in my country with that name only two months ago) before that there were not elemental formulas. So she´s been on Puramino since December and we´ve seen great results, she is a totally different baby, she went from bloody stools to a diaper a day; from vomiting after feedings to only spitting up; from crying a lot to smiling and sleeping well. She is gaining enough weight and reaching milestones as expected for her age, and we are super happy. It is really expensive, but as other reviewers think and express it is nothing compared to her wellness.

                This is my third baby with milk protein allergy. Doc put her on Nutramigen first, but she still had blood in her stool. Then she put her on Neocate. She could not tolerate it at all. She projectile vomited every feeding. We got a referral to GI...while waiting for appointment I ordered Nutramigen AA. Within 24 hours I had a new baby and no more messes to clean up. She is doing so well we have not had to go to GI. I don't know what the difference is between the two formulas, but I am so greatful for Nutramigen AA.

                      My son was 5 weeks at the time we started him on this formula and it being the 5th formula tried. He had severe colic, reflux, and was barely making bowel movements. The Dr. gave me a can of Nutramigen AA and 2 cans of Elecare. My gut told me to try the Nutramigen first and I'm very glad I did. After just about 24 hrs. I started to see a difference. He went from making a dirty diaper every other day or so to making 2 or more a day, he barely cries with gas, and he's not spitting up any more. The only thing I'd have to dislike about this formula is that it isn't sold in stores.

                        I am so thankful I found this formula for my baby. She was two months old and had different types of allergic reactions to every formula I tried. My three older children were Soy Formula babies, but my 4th could not tolerate soy, milk or any other type of formula. She went from being constipated, to diahhrea, to extreme gas, to throwing up, to skin rash. She was just miserable and crying and uncomfortable 24/7 :(

                        Within two days of giving her this formula she was like a totally new baby.

                        The price of the formula is very high, but to have a happy baby that eats, poops and burps regularly, is sooooo worth the money.

                        I highly recommend this formula!!!

                          People don't look any further. If your baby has any kind of allergy, either cow's milk, soy or whatever. This is it. My little baby at three months old started having diarrhea and blood in her stool. We tried other amino acid based formulas that are out there in the market (the only other two are Neocate and Elecare), nothing worked until I went to the Enfamil webpage and saw Nutramigen AA and decided to try it. Best decision ever. Take it from a first time parent who has been through hell with her baby. My little one has acid reflux from birth and has tried at least ten different formulas before she was diagnosed with severe cow's milk allergy. This is our third day using Nutramigen AA and so far so good. The diarrhea is almost gone completely and the blood in her stool has decreased significantly. I continue to breastfeed so I use Natramigen AA as a supplement.

                          (Allow me to just get this out of the way) The formula is quite expensive for my liking; however, it is essentially beneficial to our son, who was born 2.5 months premature. He developed an irritation (blood in his stool) on another brand of formula and his pediatrician at the time recommended Nutramigen AA to supplement the breast feeding he was getting. Needless to say this brand works best and he really seems to like it itself even without breastmilk. You can not put a price on your child's well being so take it from me that we are grateful for the breakthrough we received with this product.

                                Our son was diagnosed with severe cow's milk allergy and soy protein sensitivity. At 8 weeks he was hospitalized with a bleeding colon. We tried every formula on the market including other amino acid based formulas and nothing worked. He had reflux all the time, never slept longer than an hour at a time, and cried constantly. After the first feeding with Nutramigen AA he was a completely different baby: happy, minimal reflux and he began sleeping 6-8 hour stretches the first night on Nutramigen AA. Truly a lifesaver.

                                As a first time parent having a baby that was allergic to so much was scary and draining. All that my daughter did was cry 24/7. she is allergic to cows milk and soy. she also couldnt tolorate the Nutramigen LIPL at all, I was about to give up when we found the Nutramigen AA! what a life saver! My baby started to feel better after 24 hours, and after 2 weeks it was like a miricle! She was so sick for the first 8 weeks of her life, you would never know it now! This stuff is simply amazing! :)

                                I had problems trying to get my pediatrician to perscribe an amino acid based formula after she diagosed my 4 week old son with a severe cows milk protein allergy, as well as a soy allergy. I had tried the hydrolyzed formulas and they didnt help, so after contacting the company and having them overnight my supply FOR FREE, I tried it IMMEDIATLY and it was like someone had replaced my son with a completely different baby. He was a bit gassy, and even constipated, and its expensive, but he seemed 100% better within a few days, and has been a perfect baby ever since, so its WELL worth the money! A great product, and even greater customer service (you dont get that much anymore!)
