Re: Post 522 Runny tummy

From about 18 months my other daughter (now 2 years old) could take cow milk without any problems and she hasn''t had aczema ever since then, so I''m not sure if her problem was cow milk allergy or lactose intolarance

I forgot to mention that feeding suggestion on Isomil for my almost 3 month old daught is supposed to be 6 bottles of 180ml but she''''s taking only 3 bottles per day, how can I get her to take more? Her current weight is 5.7kg and her birth weight at 38wks was 3.06kg. Can I try her on cow milk before giving her NAN HA or Similac? I''m just confused please forgive my many questions I''m just confused

Many if not most toddlers and young children outgrow their milk allergy by about the age of 18 months.So your older daughter fits this pattern very closely. She would not be able to tolerate drinking milk now if she has a lactose intolerance.
Your baby is not drinking enough formula per day.She may be 'protecting' herself by not drinking too much of the soya formula due to her probably having become allergic to this formula. Try her on a low allergy cow's milk formula as recommended previously.
