Q.

S26 Promil

Morning doctor

Hope you are well.

My LB will be 9 months on the 25th, but suddenly I have a problem with his milk.

Little one wasn'  t interested in going onto S26 No 2 Promil when he turned 6 months. A paed advised me that he needed to go over to No 2 as there is certain nutrients that he needs to get in. Okay, so we went over to No 2 gradually quite a while after he turned 6 months. All went well, but now all of a sudden he vomits from this milk or he makes himself vomit. He still gets the same amount as before so I'  m not overfeeding. I just dont understand it. Is there some other brand I can maybe try?

I would also like to know when can baby start drinking watered down cow'  s milk.

Thank you.

Your baby is certainly not ready for regular cow's milk yet.When he is 12 months old he can start on a full cream cow's milk, but do not water it down.You should certainly try another formula. Your baby may like the taste of S26 Gold 2 now. Try this formula and let me know if you still have any problem with him taking this formula.
