Q.

Nan Optipro vs Nan HA

My baby seems to cough a lot, when she has lactose (currently on Nan Optipro). I took her off yogurt and that seem to help a bit cause at least now she is not vomiting. I want to try Nan HA, is this the way to go? Or would you suggest something else?

It sounds as if your baby may be allergic to cow's milk. NAN HA is a good way to start to see if she can tolerate this formula better. By 'better' I mean that she does not cough and does not vomit the formula. NAN HA is only a partially modified cow's milk formula and if your baby is highly allergic to cow's milk, it will not help much. If her symptoms continue when she is on NAN HA then you will need to try her on a highly modified formula for cow's milk allergic babies such as Similac Alimentum.
