Baby Allergy

Hello, my baby girl is 5 weeks old and I have no milk so I had to put her on formula. She stayed hungry after I breastfed her and would then drink a whole bottle of formula. The normal Nan1 gave her phlem. I then tried Nan HA, but it was no better. I now have her on Infasoy which has made the condition and difficulty breathing better, but she hated the taste. I struggle getting her to drink it. Do you have any advice. Should I try a different brand? It now takes her almost an hour to drink 100ml. Please help. Regards Magdel

This is a bit of a problem because your little baby seems to be allergic to cow's milk formulas and won't take a soya formula properly becuae she does not like this kind of formula.The alternatives are quite expensive but worth the try. Try her on Similac Alimentum and see if she will take this formula. Let me know how she gets on.

The Similac is a little to pricy for us. The Soy milk is going down easier. I want to see if the blocked nose claers before I change the milk again.
