Q.

NAN HA

Dear Doc

I was advised to give me son NAN HA due to allergies (skin rashes etc). Although these appear to be under control now, will the NAN HA cause any problems further down the line? By not exposing my baby to regular NAN anymore, am I not taking away the chance for his body to learn to fight the allergies?

Also, what milk should I switch to at 12 months? Is regular cow' s milk going to be suitable?

Many thanks

You musy keep your baby on the NAN HA 2 until 15 months.This is a good formula and will only help your son's allergies.He cannot have cow's milk or dairy products until you are sure that he is no longer allergic to milk. He must be tested for milk allergy when he is 15 months old.
