Difference between Nestlé's Nan & Lactogen?

Can someone please explain to me the difference between the abovementioned two products. All I can see on the cans is that Lactogen is Starter Formula for "hungry babies" and Nan is Starter Formula for "healthy infants". Which one is recommended?

These formulas are all well balanced products fit for infant use. You may choose the one that you or your baby prefers.

My baby was on Nan aswell but she was restless aswell and wanted to drink almost the hole day so she went over to Lactogen.

But first try Nan if it feeds your baby you can stay on it.

My baby was originally on Nan, but she was very restless and wanted to feed every 3 hours. The sister at the clinic recommended I try Lactogen -baby then fed every 4hours and seemed much more content. She is also a very big baby.
