Lactogen 2, constipation, whole milk, gastric problems, suggested baby food

Hi. My daugher is 13th month today. she s been drinking lactogen since birth and i only recently started her on lactogen 2 because she had allergy to other formula. but she s been constipating a lot recently and i m starting to wonder if i should switch to another formula since lactogen 2 is only for up to 7 mths. i tried switching her to whole milk but she now gets a lot of gas and i dont know if its because the whole milk is lighter to the formula.. so i m really confused. Please help.

Hi,

Exclusive breastfeeding for initial 6 months is the rule. After that, weaning may be started.

Homemade food is the best compared to commercially available products like Lactogen.

We usually ask mothers to make simple homemade infant feeds like Ragi malt, sun dried and powdered pulses, well cooked and mashed vegetables and fruits.

Please discuss about these with her Pediatrician.

Hope this helps.

Regards
