Hi doctor,

I hope you can give me advice.

My baby is 1month old. We are giving her S26 LF after numerous problems with cramps on NAN, Lactogen, Infasoy and Novalac.

The problem is that S26LF does not seem to fill her appetite as it should, but at least there are no cramps. I' m a first time i' m not sure how it' s suppose to be. She wants a bottle every 2,5 to 3 hours and drinks 150ml each time. I have tried to give her water and rooibos tea, but she wants her milk.

S26 LF is R65.00 for 400g. At the moment we are using a 400g tin in only 3days. It is getting expensive as my baby drinks a lot.

Please help! I



I get a dirty nappy almost after every bottle

You have shown that your baby probaly has a problem with lactose intolerance. She has settled on S26LF. Your baby is feeding normally for a 4 week old baby. You must not give her rooibos or water at her age so you have no choice but to use the S26LF now.You can introduce solids at 4 months starting off with a rice cereal.
