Q.

Nan Lactose free

My son ,who is 2.5 years old was on Nan lactose free up untill 1 year,now we have a baby girl(4.5 weeks now) and we went to our Pead when she was 3 weeks,she had a runny tummy and it was green and she was very uncomfortable and did not sleep long periods,only sometimes!Anyway he said we must try Nan lactose free with her too, and she sleeps a lot better,however i noticed today she had a runny tumme again.And the other thing is that the major supermarkets are very low on stock with this formule,was two years ago,and still is!!Soymilk is really bad tasting,we try it with our boy,and he just throw it up,and we went back to nan lactose free.What should i do if the shops doesnt have the milk?
And when can i let her sleep for longer periods than 4 hours, specially at night?

When she is happier on the correct formula she will sleep for longer periods. Have you tried S26LF or otherwise you will need to use a low lactose containing formula which is specially formulated for babies with mild lactose intolerance called Novalac AC.
