That is quite a tricky question, most babies differ when it comes to formula, so you can't really say what formula will work best. When I went to get my little one formula, I basically stood an hour at the formula shelf, wonder what one will be okay for him. Reading everything. The people must have thought I was crazy. In the end I took lactogen and it was actually a good choice as it tends not to give to much cramps, but as said, all babies differ. There is the more expensive one as well, It begins with a S, but can't remember the name for the life of me. Maybe one of the other ladies will know what I'm talking about. That one I heard is just as good.
Monic@R, I agree with Blompotjie, it varies from baby to baby, maybe buy a small tin of a formula you would like to use, try it, see if it agrees with baby and if baby likes it (initially baby might not like because your baby is used to the breast milk). I used NAN, my son seemed to do very well on it and when he turned 1 I put him on Nido, he is now 2 and a half and still drinking Nido (he does not like cows milk at all - unless it is a milkshake or something). Good luck!
Hi Monic@R, I must agree with Babyshoes & Blompotjie. Babies react differently to different formulas. What works for one, might not work with your lo.
My daughter was on Nan but had terrible reflux & alot of acidity. Her paediatrician changed her to Novalac AR for awhile to get the reflux under control. It is very expensive & doesn't come in big tins but I absolutely love Novalac & when she was ok, I just put her onto the normal one. She was on Novalac until she was 18 months old!
My daughter loved the flavour as it was vanilla hahaha.
Lactogen is also a good brand & apparently S26 but I've also heard other moms complain that S26 causes constipation
I have a tin of Nan at home as the hospital topped her up with Nan at the hospital.
Just wanted to know if Nan is any good or not?
I will try it out and see how my LG reacts to it - otherwise I will move onto Lactogen.
My 3 year old was on Isomil but I don't really want to put my new little one on Isomil straight away unless there is a problem and she has to be on lactose free milk.
If my LG gets constipation or cramps - what can i use/do for that?
