Q.

Milk formula

Hi, my daughter now 7 weeks, used Infacare (had no problems with breastmilk and Infacare but when I switched only to Infacare she just started crying a lot and suffered from a bad digestive system), have lots of cramps, switched to Nan Perlagon, how long before I see a difference in the cramps and crying?

It is possible that your baby has either a lactose intolerance problem or is allergic to cow'smilk. She should improve immediately with a change of formula. NAN Pelargon is a good formula but is not suitable for a baby with either lactose intolerance or cow's milk allergy. Try NAN HA first and see if your baby can tolerate this low allergy formula. If she can then continue on it. If her symptoms remain the same as now then try her on a lactose free formula such as NAN LF.
