I BF for around 7 monnths and then switched to Neocate. I honestly wish I had switched sooner because DD was so obviously miserable but we didn't know why.
Anyway I'd start off BFing. It is a chore, no doubt about it, but I think that even if you don't avoid allergies, there are other benefits to it that you just don't get from formula. Also, the cost of the hypoallergenic formulas is prohibitive, especially if you have a crap insurance plan like we do that pays for nothing. Jerks.

I disagree that it's a chore. What is a chore to me would be washing bottles, getting up in the middle of the night to mix up formula, taking bottles and formula everywhere you go, etc. Granted I didn't have any major issues with it and I know it's not smooth sailing for everyone.
