Q.

Formula question

Hi there,

My 12week old baby girl has battled with colic - but since putting her on Novalac AC1 our problem is solved. But this is a very expensive formula, and I often battle to find it at chemists. At what age should she be able to digest lactose better and not be prone to colic - so I can go back to Lactogen?

Thank you kindly!

Your baby should be over her colic by the age of 3 months. You can try her on a regular formula now and see how she gets on.
