Q.

Which formula milk is good

Hi my baby is 4 months old and he is breast fed. When he was born he was given nan for about a week while he was in hospital but when he came home I started breastfeeding him and since did not give him the formula. Now i need to go back to work and i tried to give him the nan again and he is spewed all the milk out. Then i tried S26 gold and he did the same. What can i do.

This is unusual and there are two possible explanations for your baby spewing these formulas. Firstly your baby may be allergic to cow's milk which is the most likely explanation.The other possibility is theat he is lactose intolerant, but this is less likely. Try him on NAN HA which is a low allergy formula and see if he can tolerate this formula. If he can't you should feed him on Similac Alimentum which is a very good formula for highly milk allergic babies.
