very worried - need some advice

dear doc, one of the cleaning ladies at work has a tik addict daughter who also has a 4 month old daughter whom she continues to breastfeed even after telling her not to. she also gives the baby behoedmiddel to make her sleep. the lady has now arranged for her sister to look after her grandchild but confided in me that the baby is underweight. i went to the shop and bought some nan1, cereal and purity but is there any other (not too expensive) formula milk that you can recommend that will help her to pick up some weight. think nan might be too expensive for her. she is a lovely lady and has kicked her daughter out of the house numerous times. unfortunately the support structure for rehab in their community is non-existant and the ones that are there is way too expensive.

Probably the best formula for this little baby would be NAN Pelargon. The grandmother may be able to obtain this formula at her local clinic if she explains the difficulty she has in affording a formula for her baby granddaughter.
