My DD is 6 months three weeks old and is currently on Karicare Aptamil Gold Stage 1 formula.
She also has silent reflux which seems to be getting worse lately.
Im wondering if going to the stage 2 formula which is from 6 months would make a difference.
What actually is the difference in the two stages? Does it take long for babies to get used to it?

Subscribing as I am curious myself. I know DD was constipated on step 1 I Bellamy's, then had trouble pooing on step 2. I've switched to s26 now and it seems she has diarrhoea! Can't win!

When I switched DS from stage 1 s26 to stage 2 it didn't suit him, it Made him vomit and have runny poos. I checked with the MHCN first if it was ok to go back to stage 1 and she said yes. If I were you I'd stick to what they are happy with, I don't think there's much difference nutrition wise I just think the stage two fills them up a bit more and I suspect that's why some babies have trouble digesting it.

Hmmm, if it fills them up more, it might be better for DD because she's not on an anti-reflux formula as we worry that will constipate her too much, but she's becoming really hard to burp lately and I'm wondering if it's because the milk just isn't thick enough.

Hi, I'm considering changing from stage 1/HA to stage 2 as DS is almost 8m and no longer needing HA.
How do you know stage 2 is more filling?

I had my dd on Nan Pro Gold 1 and when i put her on the stage two she refused.. and i was told it was completely ok to keep her on the stage 1. i had no probs with her at all.
