Please can you advise. My son will be 12 months on the 18 January.
You recently advised me that I should put him on Nan LF as his symptoms indicated lactose intolerance. His symptoms have improved, ie no more back and neck arching when crying at night. The problem is he wakes about 4 times a night and we can only calm him by giving him a bottle with water in and then he falls asleep. At about 3 - 4 am he will cry for a milk bottle, I' ve tried not giving it but he cries non stop until he gets it. He used to sleep through the night without any problems. He' s been waking for the past 4 months or so. What should I do?

The NAN LF is not completely satisfying your baby as far as his hunger is concerned, but you need to keep him on this formula until he is at least 15 months old. Do not give him water but give him an extra bottle of this formula when he first wakes at night.
