We had to go prescription formula and it's much cheaper at $6.20 for 8 tins.

We use alfamino because DS3 can't have dairy/soy.

I used S26 lactose free with DS as it was the only one I could find that wasn't a "gold"  formula.

DD was on alfamino like the PP but you have to see a gastro pead to get a script and I'm not sure that they would give it for straight lactose intolerance. If there are other symptoms of cmpi it would be worth investigating.

We had neocate and allerpro (?) prescribed as he had cows milk protein intolerance.

Eta: apparently neocate tastes terrible. DS refused the bottle so he only got it via stuff I'd cooked or through NG tube.

Thanks ladies,
In all my investigating s26 lactose free comes up as a really good one my doc recommended that one too as it's more readily available
