Q.

Novalac AC

Good evening Dr
I would like to thank you for your advise, my son was having colic and you advised to get him on Novalac AC and it worked wonders, he is doing very well but one of the ladies working on baby shop said he should not be on AC permanently because it''s a treament, I read outside the container and it wasn''t specified. Does permanent use of Novalac to babies cause problems? He''s 5 a months old premature.

You are very welcome.You can continue on the Novalac AC to 6 months [actual age] and then change your baby to the regular Novalac 2 formula

Is Novalac AC suitable for vegetarian babies.

Hi Doc,
My 2 month old baby has been on Novalac AC for a week, but keeps on getting constipation. He has very hard poop and has trouble getting full from his feeding. I give him the exact amounts shown on the bottle, but need to give him another bottle within an hour or two. He brings up some milk as well and scratches his face alot. He also keeps on putting his fists in his mouth and has a slimy sound after he has had his bottle. Should I rather try NAN 1 as alot of my friends do and have no problems what so ever. I originally went on Novalac AC because of the little one having some problems with colic. PLEASE HELP!
