Hi Doc, hope you are well.
About 2 weeks ago I qeuried with you substitute formula for baby, as he is getting up frequently at night, hungry. I tried the Novolac SD, as you suggested, and it seems even this milk is affecting him. Just one bottle at night, and he is unhappy through the night, after about an hrs sleep.
I have decided to now continue with the NanLF, as there are no other options due to his problem. We''ve had 7 months of sleeplessness, I can manage with a few more. :)
My question is what milk do I give him after he turns 1?

Many thanks - R

Thank you.There are lactose free milks available such as Easygest. The problem is that this is a low fat milk and low fat milks are not usually advised for children under 2 years. He may have to continue on the NAN LF to 15 months and then try the Easygest.
