Hi doc, my little had colic and we tried all sorts of milk from birth to see if its not the milk that is upsetting her. First we tried Nan then Lactogen then Nan HA after that Nan loctose free and the someone suggested that we should try Isomil which we did and from the first day on Isomil the colic was something of the past. Now we are batteling with constipation, we tried sugar water, tea and duphalac but i dont want to give the duphalac everyday becuase im afraid of the longterm effects. Is there something you can suggest?

It appears that your baby has a true milk allergy rather than a lactose intolerance problem. Unfortunately the Isomil cause her to become constipated. Your only option is to use an extensively modified cow's milk formula such as Similac Alimentum.
