Q.

Cow''s milk allergy

My baby is 15 months old and has been using a Soya formula for the last monthe due to bad bronchitis and a blood test showing that he has an allergy to cow''s milk. Ever since he has been using Infasoy he has a constant blocked nose and sleeps really badly. He was using the Infacare no 2 before he became sick and he never had a blocked nose and he slept better.
Am I using the wrong formula or could he be allergic to soya ?

Your baby could well be allergic to soya. Rather try him on a low allergy cow's milk formula such as NAN HA 2. Keep his nose clear by using saline nose drops such as Salex twice daily.
