I would like to check whether I can mix or how should i mix 2 different FM for my dear son.
Because he drinking enfalac now - more tasteless.
Many pple said Dumex is sweet and my survey is dumex baby all chubby chubby one. My dear son slim slim .
Somemore he dont wanna drink milk. So I wanna try out Dumex yet dont wanna give up Enfalac. I was thinking of alternative the milk feed btw the 2 FM. But some said cannot totally change like that.
Some recommended to mix half and half of each milk powder to a feed.
Please advise. I am confused!
Agree with autumn82. If your baby is ok with Enfalac and pooping and peeing well, then dont't change .
If you're more "adventurous" like me, I just changed the whole thing during that feeds (from breast milk to FM). LOL.
if its me, i would change fully. unless my child refuse the new FM.
my son used to drink enfalac also, realise his poo is greenish..and have gradually switched to dumex..mamil or mamex..
and he is happily puttin on weight..still...
suggest you call up their consultant and ask how to mix,.i remember seeing a chart on fm...e.g slowly replacing the feeds for enfalac with dumex...until completely on dumex
e.g if you have been feeding him @ 4pm with enfalac, replace 1 of the feeds with dumex.
and it takes about 2 weeks to have a complete change of fm...and of course his stool pattern will change...
and yes.,..dumex is cheaper hahahaa
Hmmm...im a little bit confuse on FM becuase im fully on breast milk but sometimes i give my dear daughter 1 time of FM cos friends advise to mix with FM so that she will be stronger...initially i gave her Mamex gold and she is actually doing fine and after seeing my friends son i change to ENfalac cos she said Enfalac is better...but dear daughter doesn't really want to drink Enfalc should i change back to MAMEX Gold again??
