Q.

nido, nespray or parmalat (cow' s milk) for 1to 3 yrs kids

Complements of the new season Doc,

My 21 months old boy is no longer interested in his isomil 3 formula he prefers his parmalat only. He eats and drink well but weigh 11 kg after being sick and removing tonsils.He talks perfectly (a full sentence)He has told me not to buy any isomil cause is for babys. My problem is a nurse at the clinic said i must stop giving him cows milk and feed him nespray or nido so that he can pick up weight quickly.Please Doc help wich one of the three is good enough.

The average weight for a 21 month old little boy is 11.5kg so your son's weight is only slightly below the average. There is no need for you to be concerned. He can certainly just be on Parmalat First Growth milk now.

My son is only 4 months, he refuses to feed Nan1, tried Isomil and Lactogen.. he doesnt want them.. we wer admitted in the hospital he was 5.9kg because apparently he is malnutritioned. They fed him f75 which he tolerated now we discharged, i cant get it anywhere. Just 2 days back i gave him Parmalat first growth.. he is drinking it like tmrw aint coming.. should i continue?

I have a 1 year six months baby boy. when he was born he weighed 2.25kg. he has been a very skinny baby since he was born. every time I take him to the clinic I am told I don't feed the child well he is under weight, he is now weighing 7.2. his paediatrician said to keep giving him formula milk as he does drink it (NAN3) but I am not happy since he is not picking up much weight. I have since gone to see another paediatrician and she said to take him off the bottle totally so that he will eat more solid foods as he is a very picky eater. please help as I am very frustrated and worried for my baby, I don't know how to help him as every time someone says I must buy something I buy, the supplements, multivitamin they are just not working. I am not also a big person, can that be a factor also? Which milk (nido or nespray) do I give him if I put him off the nan3

I am frustrated been struggling with nappy rash for the last few months now ever since the pampers. Tried various others including creams but just cant seem to get rid of this problem. Baby has started on the Parmalat milk first growth could it possibly be this as it contains sugar

We have decided to give our little one First Growth Parmalat he had a bit of tummy trouble and Doctor said put him on Lactose Free(also Parmalat) the result of tests prove he is not
Lactose intolerant and his tummy seems O.K. now, to move him onto first growth how slowly should I go ? about 10mls. every 3 days ? he seems to be a bit sensitive to changes but eats well. He is 12 months old and weighs 9.6 kgs.
