    Ard 2nd mth, he is fully on formula, he constipated for a few days, i brought him to the doc, he said tat 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).:001_302:

    Maybe u 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. :001_302:

    hi hi,
    m a new member, just read about u asking about views and comment on the infant formula, was wondering why u dnt mention S26 Gold Alpha Pro???? My bb is actually on S26, the reason I hv 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 bb has no problem taking S26, mayb u wanna give it a try.....

    Used to feed DS Similac 0-6 mths then baby had a hard time pooing and always end up crying so i switch to Nan-1 HA, no DS 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 juz to share,i have been givin my dd 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.. tt time i was veryy strees liao.. 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 tt for 1 week. then i slowly switch to step 2.. so far she's pretty ok.

    during tt 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 la.. (he workin for mead johnson mah~) he told me tt all tis milk powder claims tt 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 wat i mean?he also said tt dumex is not bad but of cos there are better brands. he said tt 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 wat i saw la.. e babies drinkin similac all like tt.. since my cuzzie baby, the fren baby also same.. so ther u go my piece of reply.. hehe..
