    Default Time To Change Formula - Any Suggestions On Good One?

    Hi,

    I need help please!!

    My little girl is now 6 months corrected age and has been on S26 AR formula as she has had reflux since being born, but it seems to be a lot better now, has doesn't seem to effect her.

    I am looking at putting her onto a new formula but have no idea which one.
    does anyone have any suggestions on what is a good formula for a 6 month old baby?

    I'm a huge fan of goat milk formulas, my naturopath puts a lot of her clients on goats who have reflux/colic/ constipated babies ( a lot of my friends have changed over too) i use Karicare goat , easy to get at Coles or woolies , it is more expensive but worth it!

    thanks girls, they all sound like good ideas. I will go to the chemist and have a look and read on them and see which one will be good to try.

    The S26 Gold Step 2 should be fine. My DD1 was on that. DD2 is on Nan Pro 1, and between 6-9 months I will transition her to Nan Pro 2. HTH.

    ETA: the Nan HA 2 formula is based on 100% whey whereas the Nan Pro is 70% whey and 30% casein. The whey is easier to digest then the casein, so a 100% whey based formula *may* be better for your DD, because of her reflux.
