Q.

FORMULA DIFFERENCE

My baby is 4months old, I'm still breastfeeding in the mornings and evening but started giving her NAN HA during the day when she goes to school. My problem is how do I now which formula is the best for her. How I can about NAN HA is I phoned the clinic and they said I have to start with that but I do not even now the difference between al the formulas that is on the market. What is the difference between NAN and NAN HA. And also Lactogen and all the rest you get. How should I know which is best for baby. Should I continue with NAN HA or can I try NAN? Please help as I do not know what to use.

NAN Ha is given to babies who have a family history of allergies or children with milk allergy. It is a very good milk. If your baby does not have any allergic problem then use a so-called humanised milk such as NAN or S26.

NanHA is for kids who might develop allergies to cow's milk (family history ect.) There is no reason to try anything else if baby's doing good on it, except maybe for the price!! You can try normal Nan, but the moment baby starts showing signs of allery (stuffy nose, tight chest, diarrhea, vomiting, rash ect.) put her back on NanHA, or try Isomil which is soya based. My baby developed allegy to soya though!
Good Luck!
