Thanks for help, another question.


You recently suggested I give my 10 month old Nan LF because he was waking up and arching his back since birth.
I did as you suggested and I' ve seen a marked improvement. My baby does sometimes wake up now and also arches back, but I think it' s because he' s teething. (2 bottom teeth have now cut through). The problem is my husband thinks it is just coincidence and thinks we should put him back on Nan 2 to see if he arches his back again. If so, then he will believe.

The question is, should I do this just to satisfy him or would it be bad for my baby?

Under no circumstances must your baby go back onto NAN2. He obviously has a problem with lactose intolerance and you should not give him a regular formula or any other dairy products. He may be still arching his back at times due a some acid reflux. This should respond well to a little Gaviscon Infant added to his formula.
