Q.

Refusing milk

My 10mth old is refusing to drink his Isomil,he was lactose intolerant and is having full cream yoghurt and food with dairy,you did previously advise to try Nan H.A but he refused this as well. Is it to early to try cows milk or even offer flavoured milk to make it more appetising. I''m worried about him not drinking anything,he''s even refusing water or juice but eats well.

It is too early to try cow's milk. If you are sure that your son is no longer lactose intolerant then you can try Lactogen2. An alternative is NAN Pelargon which has a yoghurty taste which he may prefer.Let me know if he still refuses this formula.
