I think there's a shortage of A2 as well, might want to double check before you switch

I'm not sure if any of those are experiencing shortages as I used the Aldi Newborn Stage 1 formula for my DD the composition of which is at least 60% whey and 40% or less of caesin. I've had to go back to using it as although she doesn't have an intolerance to cows milk proteins as such, when I introduced cows milk to her after she turned 1, it caused severe constipation in her (which is a whole other thread!!), so she has an issue with it to some degree. Will attempt to reintroduce her in the near future.
Anyhoo...good luck Luv!! You're on the right track I think with what your plan is as the only other alternatives would be a goats milk based formula. Here's a link to a PDF file that shows the composition of most formulas here in Australia.

personally with a lactose sensitive bub I would stick with the lactose free formula. There's really no need for bub to change now if he's doing well on it. My 1st was very lactose sensitive. I breastfed him for about 12 months, then he had de-lact formula, till he was almost 2.5. At that stage he still enjoyed his milk, so I bought him the Liddels lactose free milk from the supermarket, and he did really well on it. Eventually he got over having milk regularly and once it became a once every couple of days kind of thing I no longer worried about the lactose.
I don't think there's any need to change at this point. If you really really want to, I would try A2.

I would try allerpro by karicare it's a allergy sensitive formula or just ride it out. Once he's older introduce dairy one day then see how he goes

OP just wondering how you're going? I believe my 2 month old has lactose overload also he has all the symptoms but not green poos. I changed him to s26 lactose free lastnight, waiting to see if it makes a difference, still early days yet.
What did you end up doing? Did you change formulas or stay on the lactose free?
I originally wanted to change to karicare ha but cannot find it anywhere around where i live, it's always out of stock. Not going to bother with nan ha as ds1 went horribly on it and there are sooooo many bad reviews.
I'm going to take ds2 to the dr for more advice but in desperation i have put him on lactose free formula.
Anyone else have experience?

hi there I am on my last tin of karicare de-lact as I originally had 9 tins stocked up when the shortage started and then I am going to try my son on nan gold ha 2 and see how he goes. it's still hyperallergenic so as long as he goes ok with the lactose all should be well he's nearly 9 months now so should have grown out of it by now from the info I have read/been told by my doc. I am really iffy about the S26 brands but only because lots of babies I know of have gone bad on any of the S26 brands they've tried but I hope ur little one went ok with it otherwise I think there's also a nan lactogen formula.. let me know how u went

Ended up back at the dr, she gave.me a tin of aptimal gold +. I'm almost finished that tin and bought one more to give it a proper go. She said if he's still not good after to go back and we'll try something else. He's better some days and bad others. I feel like we can't win!
