Q.

Formula

I have a 10 months old baby girl. I want to find out how much formula is she supposed to drink a day. She weighs 10kg. She is on NAN Perlagon and she doesn' t like her formula especially during the day but at night she does drink it.

Your baby needs about 120ml for every kilogram body weight of fluids per day.This means she needs 1200ml per day now. This does not all have to be milk at her age and may include water and other fluids as well. Try her on Lactogen 2 and see if she will take this formula. At 12 months she will be changing to Nido or regular full cream milk.
