Q.

Change Milk

My daughter is 7.5 months old. She weighs about 9kg and eats very well. She has silent reflux which burns her. We had her on Nan (all of them) when she was born. At 6 weeks we changed to Isomil. She was happy and her reflux was better. We had her tested for lactose intolerance at 4 months, which was negative. At 6 months she started having harder stools and it seemed to be painful. So we changed to Nan HA. The hard stools didnt go away, at first her stool was loose and then it went back to being hard. She was on Nan HA for about 4 weeks, so we put her back on the Isomil. Her stools are still not soft, and for the last 2 months she hasnt slept through the night like she used to from age 2 weeks. What should I do? Must I change her milk and to what? She is on Motillium and Altosec.

It is clear that your baby cannot tolerate Isomil due to her becoming constipated on this milk. She is not lactose intolerant and I presume not allergic to milk so can have any cow's milk formula. As she is very troubled by constipation it would be best to use Lactogen2.Keep her on the Motilium and Altosec for her reflux.
