    Default Bellamy's Organic follow on

    DS is almost 8 months old and currently on the Bellamy's stage 1 formula. He still has 5 bottles a day (4x180 and 1x240). We're doing BLW and he's only now starting to chew and swallow.
    I noticed that there's about $6 difference in the stage 1 and stage 2 formula, that's a huge difference! Not that I mind paying the extra if it's still necessary, but is it? Does he need to be on the stage 1 (or is it better for him), or can he move onto stage 2?

    DS is 1 next week and I might move him onto stage 2 for a bit after that before other milk. There are more vitamins in nutrients so I would personally keep him on stage 1 as long as possible. With BLW they sometimes eat less so you want to be sure they're getting everything they need.

    Check the labels - some stage 2 formulas up the iron content and a few other vitamins - not by a lot though so just check if there is a big difference and if its worth doing

    I had just asked the dietician this very question at hospital. She said it's not necessary and is more a gimmick than anything else... her opinion. Breastmilk doesn't change right?? I will happily keep my dd on stage 1 for ages. I guess it is up to you though.

    He's absolutely loving it so much fun to watch him develop with his food! Thanks for all the help a few months ago!
