Q.

Isomil formula

Since starting my baby on Isomil, he''s different - happy, and sleeping through. No cramps or gas issues.
I just want to find out if it''s ok to keep him on Isomil now (since it''s working)? I''m getting mixed reactions because of the formula he''s on. Does it cause constipation and is it ok for the little one to get constipated a litlle?
Will NAN lactose free also cause constipation?

I am pleased to hear that your baby is so much better. He can definitely stay on Isomil. Most babies do very well on Isomil. Very few babies become constipated. Lactose free formulas such as NAN LF may also cause constipation due to the absence of lactose in the formula. So keep your son on Isomil. He can change to Isomil 2 at 6 months and Isomil 3 at 1 year.
