Q.

5 month old doesnt want milk

my 5 month old doesnt want to drink his formula (NAN1). He eats his solids well. In desperation tonight i added a little nesquick chocolate and he gulped the whole bottle down. I know that its not that good for him because it has suga in. How else can I get him to drink? He drinks rooibos tea. Its just the milk he is not interested in. What can I do? How bad is the nesquick for him?

Obviously you have a problem here as you cannot continue to add Nesquik to his formula [sugar content] and rooibos tea is not adequate as nutrition.Try him on another formula and see if he will take it. Try Lactogen1 first and if he won't take that then try NAN pelargon.
