Q.

Baby Formula

Hi Doc. My son is 8months weighs 9.9kg he is a big boy. He is on nan 2. One doctor suggested that i change the milk to Lactogen so that he can just maintain the weight and not gain because Nan is too rich in nutrients. Please advise, do i continue with nan or Lactogen?

Your baby son's weight is well above the average weight for a baby boy of 8 months. It is important to know if his height is well above average also.You say your son is a big boy so he is probably tall as well. It is not necessary to change his formula from the NAN he is on now.
