Q.

FOLLOW UP ON NAN HA 2

HI DOC
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT I CAN GIVE MY BABY AFTER NAN HA 2? SHE IS TURNING 1YEAR NEXT MONTH. I KNOW YOU DO GET A NAN HA 3 - BUT NOT IN SA. SHE HAS ECZEMA, THATS WHY SHE IS ON NAN HA 2. WHAT WOULD BE BEST TO GIVE HER AFTER NEXT MONTH. AND WHAT FINGER FOODS IS GOOD FOR THEM - LATELY SHE DOES NOT WANT TO BE FED WITH A SPOON, BUT WHEN I GIVE HER SMALL PIECES OF VIENA, SHE WILL EAT THAT - BUT SURELY SHE CANT LIVE ON VIENNA EACH NIGHT. AND HOW MANY BOTLES OF MILK IS GOOD ON HER AGE PER DAY? I DO MAKE HET FRESH VEGGIES AND MEAT - THROUGH THE LIQUDIZER, BUT SHE REFUSES TO EAT. SHE DID EAT NORMAL BEFORE. IS THIS JUST A STAGE? SHE STILL HAS HER " MIELIEPAP"  EACH MORNING THO AND SHE LOVES IT.

You can continue on the NAN HA to 15 months and then she should be tested to see if she is still allergic to cow's milk.She only needs about 700ml of milk a day now provided that she is eating a good mixed diet [which she is not]I hope that our regular forum members will advise you about her diet, but otherwise you should write to our new Parenting line on Health24 for advice.

My child drinks NAN Ha 3 - I live in Cape Town and its in every store I know.

My child also struggles to eat! I get so jealous when I see my friends babies/toddlers eating a whole plate of food! I hope this will get better.

Good luck to u!
