NAN HA 3 ?

Hi Paediatrician

My daughter suffers from terrible eczema and as such I was advised to only feed her NAN HA. She is now a year old and there is no (have not seen) NAN HA 3. What formula would you recommed I move her to?

Also I have recently just noticed that she has a bow leg. Is there anything I dhould be doing to ensure that she does not grow up with her leg in that state?

Thanking you in advance for your advice.

Good question. You can continue using the NAN HA2 until your daughter is 15 months old. She should be tested at that stage to find out if she is still allergic to cow's milk. If she is then you should change to regular soya milk.
Your daughter's bow leg may just be the result ofthe position she was in when she was developing in your utreus.This usually corrects itself with time once she is walking. The problem however is that we need to be sure that she does not have a Vitamin D deficiency condition of her bones which is called Rickets. She should be seen by a paediatrician and may need to have a blood test to see if her calcium,phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase levels are normal. At the same time she can have the RAST test done to find out if she is still alergic to cow's milk.
