Q.

Formula ( NOVALC TO NIDO )

I have a one year old who was born prematurely and ever since I have been using NOVALC FORMULA and changed it to NIDO. After the change he started having diarrhea, I thought is due to teething as he is teething and it will stop but is getting worse, was I wrong to change the formula? Is there any formula that you can recommend for him?

It could well be the change of formula to Nido that is causing your baby's diarrhoea. Keep him on the Novalac formula for another 3 months to age 15 months and then change to a growth milk such as Parmalat First Growth milk.
