    My son is drinking similac. The good thing is baby will not hav hard time pooing. Stool more similar to breastfeeding. Some of the formula milk will coz the stool to be abit hard. My son now poo everyday, sometime twice, til now, his stool still abit watery.

    around 2nd month, he is fully on formula, he constipated for a few days, i brought him to the doc, he said that maybe initially he was breastfed so need adjust back. After a few days, he start to poo everyday and is watery not hard. And similac does not contain palm oil so it wont cause constipation(frm the similac info).

    I dont agree with similac info...of coz everyone will say their own brand is good but i believe there r quite a number of baby having constipation frm similac which my dear son is one of them. Initially i aso thought similac very good like what you mention about the similac info

    Maybe you r right, for my son is okay. He poo everyday, even now on similac follow-on, still the same. Tink tis will depend on individual.

    Re: Infant milk formula

    hi hi,
    m a new member, just read about you asking about views and comment on the infant formula, was wondering why you dnt mention S26 Gold Alpha Pro???? My baby is actually on S26, the reason I have chosen S26 is bcos, i heard from my doc, it's the first infant formula that has and increase in alpha protein (closer to breast milk) and decrease in beta lactulbumin (potential antigent that causes allergies), so far my baby has no problem taking S26, mayb you wanna give it a try.....

    Re: Infant milk formula

    Used to feed dear son Similac 0-6 mths then baby had a hard time pooing and always end up crying so i switch to Nan-1 HA, no dear son poos every day with ease and its got extra protection on allergies if baby develops any when they grow older. Its milder to the tummy.

    hi just to share,i have been givin my dear daughter mamex gold since she was born and also breast milk for a month only. till now she's on mamex..ok now, there was once when i wanted to change her to step 2 but my mum accidently changes it drastically then she cant adapt to it. she was havin very bad diarrhoea. very very bad. even when she fart she will poo.. that time i was veryy strees .. then went doc. doc say mayb lactose intolerance. so recommend soy milk. so i tied on her isomil as recommend by doc.she began to be ok. gave her that for 1 week. then i slowly switch to step 2.. so far she's pretty ok.

    Re: Infant milk formula

    during that stress period i was doin major research. i met tis doc fr mead johnson n recommended me enfalac. he told me the goodness of e product .. (he workin for mead johnson mah~) he told me that all tis milk powder claims that they hav dha n sa n all e rest. as long as they put some dha n sa inside they claim their milk powder good already. understand what i mean?he also said that dumex is not bad but of cos there are better brands. he said that abbott staff will obvious say similac is good as they wanna ask ppl drink e milk. my opinion on similac is the babies grow big. like not normally big.. mayb fr what i saw .. e babies drinkin similac all like that.. since my cuzzie baby, the friend baby also same.. so ther you go my piece of reply.. hehe..

    My son drank Friso but now at 26mths old, he is drinking Gain IQ

    I also heard alot of cases where baby gets constipated when they drink similac. A friend of mine worst, baby didnt poo for 7 days, in the end she switched brand.
