Changing formula

i have read your answeres on constipation in babis,
most of it say' s change baby formula to Lactogen,
what i would like to know is do they then stay on Lactogen or we have to give it till their tummies are back to normal and revert back to in my case S26 Gold (2)?

Your baby should stay on Lactogen.There are other possible formulas for constipated babies such as Novalac It, but Lactogen is readily available and usually solves the problem

If he' s doing fine on Lactogen, he can stay on it no use reverting as it will still make him constipated.

Formula no 1 is a bit different to no. 2. They have more ingredients some of them (ingredients) can upset baby' s tummy.
