    DD has no issue with Neocate. Everyone banged on about the taste but she doesn't care at all! Apparently the tropical flavoured stuff is worse. DD is on Neocate LCP.

    Cue, how old is DD? I am reading places that DS shouldn't be on advance as he is only 7 months however he isnt allowed any solids at the moment - I presume this is why? LCP is for under 1 year isn't it? We can't see the paed until next week but ill ring the pharmacist today and see if he can order in the normal flavored one overnight. Just worried about dehydration. I have tried distracting him etc with limited success, the poor thing just gags when he trys to drink the tropical!

    DD was 13 weeks when she was weaned onto Neocate LCP. She's almost 10 months now. She never had any issues with it at all, probably because she was so young when she started. I'm not sure about the ages for each type, our paed didn't say anything about changing when she turns 1 but we'll be seeing him in a couple of months so I guess we'll find out.

    If your bub is showing signs of dehydration like dry nappies, I'd be offering some cooled boiled water throughout the day until he starts taking the formula.

    Thanks Cue. He is lucky in the sense that it's not a major allergy and not severe symptoms. The paed allowed him to have Nan HA while we were waiting to move onto Neocate to see if he could tolerate partially hydralised. He still had some mild reactions but def not as severe as before. So I have some there if I need it and have been giving him cooled boiled water between feeds, every half hour or so. He still has wet nappies and I have phoned the chemist - they are ordering the plain flavoured Neocate but won't be here until Monday so if he still refuses the tropical ill put him back on HA for the weekend.
    I'm sure Neocate advance has more ingredients but LCF has extra of something else, I can't recall.

    I just checked the tin, LCP = long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. It also has Omega 3 DHA (also fatty acids).

    The tin also says it is recommended for bubs with multiple protein intolerances (DD has suspected combined cows milk and soy protein intolerance) so that might be the difference.

    Oh my goodness. I got the unflavored today and he is turning his nose up at that too! Tried adding a bit of golden syrup and a bit of pure icing sugar (cringe) as suggested by others.. No go. I'm gonna ask for LCP or Elocare.

    I just had a look on the website, apparently advance is only recommended for children over 1. Your paed may have a good reason for prescribing it for your bub but if you're unsure it would be worth double checking. I would imagine advance would be designed to be consumed along with solid foods rather than as a complete diet.

    I think I had better. - he isnt on solids at all. Thanks so much, I think I'd be more comfortable if he was on one of the others like LCP and apparently the terrible taste isn't there - does the LCP come flavoured or plain??

    Oh no! It might just take some getting used to. I would call your paed to discuss it though, you want to make sure he's getting the nutrition he needs.

    Yeah, he had maybe 10ml and wouldn't drink anymore and screamed every time I tried to give him some. I made up some Nan HA and he happily had that and was quite hungry.
