Q.

Nido quantities

My 16 month old drinks lots and lots of milk, even though he eats well and also drinks juice and water. Therefore I tried giving him 2 bottles of Nido as recommended on the tin and the rest cow' s milk. But now it seems as if his tummy gets upset from the cow' s milk. Would it be a problem if I rather give him Nido for all the milk feeds he require, i.e. 6 bottles a day(!)?

Your son is now too old to be drinking so much milk. The maximum number of bottles should be reduced to 3 per day. You can use the Nido for all of these bottles. He must now have water and diluted fruit juice and a full mixed diet
