Milk Allergy - formula?

My 7 week old has been diagnosed with a milk allergy so we''ve changed his formula from Nan to Nan HA as requested by our Paed. Are there cheaper alternatives though as Nan HA is very expensive? I hear that S26 is highly recommended. Our baby also suffers with a bit of afternoon / evening tummy cramps so I dont want to change to a formula that will make this worse.

The cheapest of the low allergy formulas for milk allergic children is NAN HA.He cannot use S26 as this is not a low allergy formula.The only other alternative would be to use a soya formula such as Infacare Soya1, but it would be best to continue on the NAN HA.

Hi my baby also drinks Isomil because he is lactose int and its working very well - much more affordable than Nan ha - and Nan ha isn''t lactose free - and it tastes horrible! Good luck!

Hi Sue, my now 7 month old daughter is lactose intolerant and was put on NAN HA from 3 months, but I found that it was quite pricey her pead suggested Isomil or Infacare soya. We are using Isomil and she''s fine on it and it is also affordable. But lets ait and here what the Doc suggests.
