What is the difference between Nan Pro and Lactogen? Which is better?

What is the difference between Nan Pro and Lactogen? My 6 month old kid was being given Nan Pro but he never liked it, now to change the taste we got Lactogen and he seems to be happy with it and never makes a fuss. But I am not sure which one is better in terms of nutrition, should we continie with Lactogen or go back to Nan Pro?

Thank you for your query,
NanPro is an advanced formula in comparision to Lactgen as the former is fortified with essential fatty acids like DHA.
But as your child is not liking Nanpro,you can continue the lactgen only.
But mother milk is the best feed for the baby and it is the most nutritious than any formula milk.
Hope I have answered your query.

Thanks for your query.
There is not much difference in terms of nutrition value in Nan and lactogen,however lactogen is sweet and nan is bland to taste.
If you baby is happy with lactogen continue with it.moreover you need to start complementary feeding as your baby is now 6 months old.
Give her coconut water,rice water,boiled pulses water to start with and then semisolids by next month.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
