Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

Isomil is a soy milk product, given in case babies have sensitivity to cow’s milk.
You can try Zerolac powder which is lactose free but you would need to add sugar as it is sugar free too.
You can try one more product called- Nestle Good Start Supreme Soy DHA & ARA formula.
I hope I have answered your query. If you have any more concerns, I will be happy to help.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.

Hi,

There are no stages for Zerolac powder.
You can continue it for your son.
At the same time continue his meals like dal-rice, spinach-dal, and boiled potato.
Zerolac powder alone is not enough for increasing demands of baby growth.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
