Q.

FORMULA

i took my 15 month old son for his injections then the sister there told me i must take him off of his lactogen and start giving him normal milk. Will this be fine or should i buy him Nido or something similar. and also for how long does he then need to go on with this, is it up until 2 years of age, She advised me that this will enhance his eating as he eats very poorley most of the time. Will this work?

It would be better to change to a growth formula such as Nido as your son is not eating well. He can stay on this formula to 2 years and then try him on regular full cream cow's milk after that.
