Also our immunologist said BF babies tended to refuse the cpmi formulas because they tasted foul and had a different consistency when compared to breastmilk so FF had an advantage in transitioning to them. So a definite win for FF on that front from his perspective.
One tip I have is to learn about the different names that are used for milk protein - lots of people don't understand the difference between lactose and cows milk protein and might prescribe or offer products as safe for cpmi because it's lactose free (*cough* dietician/nutrition team at major children's hospital). I found knowing about that stuff boosted my confidence in feeling like I was capable of managing it.
Eta: we also had different reflux meds including losec and ranitidine.
