    Default New Aptamil Karicare de lact formula

    My child has been on lactose free formula most her left and recently it's changed it's formula to include omega 3
    im wondering if anyone else has noticed that
    a) they seem hungrier
    b) waking at night more and drinking twice as much as they normally did!
    We have has issues with lactose free milk as she's over 1 so I stuck to the formula but am almost convinced the new ingredients is not only causing more night wakes but that it's not filling her up like before!

    Any advice /comment please!

    Sorry can't help but I have heard other parents comment on the regular standard Karicare (my dd was on this for a bit) that when they changed the recipe this year their kids had more trouble with poop and tummy upset. Like the formula was too rich.
    Not sure if that would apply to the specialty formulas.

    we tried my ds on this and we found it did not satisfy him. He wouldnt sleep though on this formula when he usually would.we also
    took him to get tested and found he didnt have an intollerence so we went back to normal formula

    you could try focusing more on more filling foods rather than milk....like pasta and meat dishes for dinner. Plenty of protien and good fats like avocados are sure to satisfy. Toddlers dont "need" formula after 12mths providng their diet is varied and they are eating good amounts
