Good Morning

I am currently just over 7 months pregnant, and will not be breastfeeding.

We do not have any issues surrounding allergies in our family (mine or my husband) do we still need to consider an hypo-allergenic type of formula?

I would like to know if it would be advisable to start our baby off on LACTOGEN from birth?

Kind Regards

You certainly do not need to give your baby a hypoallergenic formula so you can use any of the usual infant formulas. Lactogen is very popular.

My son is 6 months in 2 weeks and I'm going back to work. He will be going on formula. I suspect he is lactose intolerant and not sure which formula to put him on. Will useing lactogen hypoallergenic be the best choice?

Hi there. both my daughters grew up with lactogen, just my last I had to switch to soya as she developed asthma(but it runs in the family) and I promise you they are both normal, very naughty little monsters. I take my hat off for any woman who breastfeeds, personally with my second I said no way am I going to wake up every 15 minutes again,hehehe, and as I am typing my response, 2years later she is sitting next to me telling me what to do, perfectly healthy. Good Luck

the best milk to prevent allergies is NAN HA. I had my son on Nan HA then went over to Lactogen, it was the worse mistake ever! he now has a cow''s milk allergy and suffering from a blocked nose and nasal congestion every day.
