Hi there, My 7 month old baby boy coughs and gets a running/blocked nose after feeding on Lactogen 2. What other formula can we use or what other options are there. Thank you

It sounds as if your baby is allergic to cow's milk formulas such as Lactogen. First try him on a low allergy formula such as NAN HA 2 and see if his runny nose and cough stop. If not you will need to try a special formula for highly cow's milk allergic babies, such as Similac Alimentum or Novalac Aminova.
