Changing Infant Formula


My baby is 9 months old.
When he turned 6 months I started him on the stage 2 infant formula (S26), it gave him terrible diarrhea. My paed said that I should phase him on to the formula slowly. Starting with 1 feed and then progressing, the other feeds consisted of the stage 1 formula.
He was doing well until I started giving him the 2 second feed with the stage 2 formula. The diarrhea started again.
should i switch to another formula - maybe NAN hypo allergenic ?
He is still on the Stage 1 formula and i''m worried about the nutritional content.

It would certainly be a good idea for you to change your baby to a hypoallergenic formula. NAN HA2 is a good choice.

My baby is 4 months old and i am back at work so i have put him onto formula but I cant seem to find the right one or advice that helps regarding this.
I had him on Nan for a week but his poo was green and he was not happy on the formula and with Nan HA2 I had the same problem.
Now he has been on Infacare for a week and all he does is cry from the stomach cramps.
Should I change to S26 or Isomil or am I not leaving him on the formulas long enough?
I feel bad as he feels like a ginnie pig to me with all these formulas.
Please help
