Q.

NAN 2

Dear Pead
Another question re above: My Pead told me that 3 x 200ml of formula a day is the right intake for a 6 month old, but the NAN 2, which Im wanting to start, instructs 3/4 x 225ml. Should I keep on with the 200ml bottles or should I follow the instructuions and up the formula?

NAN2 can be given from 6 months. But you will notice that NAN1 can also be continued after 6 months. After siz months on NAN2 you give 225ml's water - 9 scoops formula. Don't worry about the amount of times given ina day, that's just a guideline anyways. Baby should also be starting solids by now and that will cuae them to drink less milk aswell.

How many feedings did you give your baby before? Carry on like before? Other wise do what your paed told you to do. You'll notice if your baby is hungry, then give the extra bottle?
