Q.

Update

Thanks for the great advice, my 5 month old baby was constipated used similac and you told me to change to lactogen 1, she is now regular again. I do find that she gets fuller faster from the lactogen. She drinks only 5 bottles a day between 125 to 150ml. Is this fine? She doesnt seem to be a hungry baby.

Another question, my girl seemed to developed a dry cough, no fever, she still sleeps. Nose also sometimes a bit blocked, I use saline drops for the nose and Purity homopathic cough syrup for the cough.

When do you take them to see the Dr?

Thank you.Your baby will feel full a bit sooner on Lactogen. She is doing well.
Your baby seems to have a rather mild cold.She is sleeping well which is very important. You are treating her correctly. There is no need to take her to a doctor as she seems to be comfortable and should be better soon.
