Novolac SD

Hi Doc, you suggested last week that I put my 8 month old girl on Novolac SD to help with her sleeping problems at night. One question: Would the SD not make her so full during the day that she will loose her appetite and not eat so well?

Good question.Novalac SD does not usually make babies feel so full during the day that they do not eat well in the evening. If your baby seems to be getting full during the day then only use the Novalac SD at night before her bedtime.

Thank you Doc, but what do I then give her for formula during the day? Do I need to stay within the " Novolac"  range? Or could I give Promil during the day? Promil is also 80/20 casein/ whey ratio. Will the " mix feeding"  not harm her tummy?
Sorry for all the questions! My 1st one so quite " new"  to this world!
