Q.

twins

i have twins, they are 7 weeks old.......
They are on Nan formula, they used to drink 150mm but lately it seems they are not enjoying the milk.
they drink 100 and dont want anymore, can they be off the taste or what could be the reason?

It is difficult to know if there is a problem here or not as you have not given me their weights. If they are picking up weight and are happy and content then all is well. If they are not gaining weight then obviously there is a problem. It is not always a good idea to change formulas as that often does not solve the problem, but if you feel that this is necessary you can switch to S26 Gold.

I also have twins and they are now 18months old. They started drinking 40ml because they were premature and when they were 6weeks they were drinking 100ml. I had the same problem with the one twin. I consulted the paeditrician for advice and he recommeded that I change the formula from nan to isomil. It worked.

Good luck with the little ones they are bundle of joy and trust me its not easy to raise twins. You must also rest whenever u get a chance.
