Q.

very hungry baby

Hello Doc
My son is 4months 3 weeks, he is on breastmilk and Nan 1 HA and i have started him on solids 3 weeks ago.He weighs 7.8kg, he was 3.53 kg at birth. This past week he has been eating more than normal, it seems breastmilk is not satisfying his hunger anymore, every two hours he wants to eat, is there anything i can do to help him. He has cereal in the morning and evening and i have just introduced purity for lunch. Thank you kindly

You have done a lot already, but you may want to supplement his milk intake with a more filling formula.Why is your baby on NAN LA? Is he allergic to cows milk? If he is not milk allergic then you can try him on Lactogen1 instead of the NAN HA.
