NAN HA is a low allergy milk but some babies who are highly allergic to cow's milk may not be able to tolerate it. NAN LF is for babies who have a problem with lactose intolerance. This is not an allergy but an intolerance to cow's milk because lactose intolerant babies cannot digest the natural milk sugar called lactose which is present in milk.Try the NAN HA and if your baby shows signs of being allergic then you will have to use Similac Alimentum.

I put my girl on the Nan LF after no success with another milk.
And I must suggest that you try this first.

One pediatrician once told me that the HA formula is not much different to a baby unless you start a baby with it. If your baby has shown an allergic reaction to Isomil as well as Lactogen, then HA won''t make a difference.

The LF is just very expensive, but worth it.

Also try to get information on Similac Alimentum (very expense though!), this is a wonderful milk for allergic babies, but my girl was older when I tried it and didn''t like the taste, so the LF was the way to go.

Good luck!!!
