Q.

Change in formula and vaccines

My son is 2 months old. I started him off on S26 Gold, then changed his milk to Infasoy as his doctor thought he could be lactose intolerant. We were advised at the storks nest clinic that Infasoy has a high content of oestrogen and we should change his formula to Novalac Anti colic and anti reflux, as he suffered from both colic and reflux. I was also told that I should try Nan HA. I am now so confused with everyone recommending something different. He is still on the Infasoy. He went for his 8 weeks vaccines last week, and ever since has been more crabby, restless, not sleeping or eating well.

There is absolutely no need to change your son's formula. He is doing well on the soya and Infasoy has a very good track record for safety.The oestrogen content is extremely small. Children can take as long as 10 days to get over an immunisation, depending on the nature of the particular vaccination.
