My child just had her last bottle with Promil powder (Promil Kid for 1-3 years old) and she will be shifting to Nido Jr. (Nestle) because she is still constipated with Promil. I have tried Alactamil, S-26, lactose free Promil and S-26 but it didn't make her digestion and bowel movement any better. My eldest used Mylac, Promil and now, Nido or Bear brand depending on the budget. What formula milk did you give you child and what was the effect? What are your considerations in choosing a formula milk aside from Doctor's prescription?

My baby girl started with Enfalac then we shifted to Enfalac a+ which is good for the brain development of a child. We gave her Enfapro as soon as she reached 6 months old but when she experienced diarrhea, we had to give her Enfapro Lacto-Free. When she turned 1, we gave her Enfagrow A+. She recently turned 3 so now I got her Enfakid A+. It's kinda expensive but my toddler will be able to consume all of it in like 3 weeks or more. I also buy Bear Brand. But that's already common to be seen in our table because I drink it with Milo lol(Am I baby? Haha). My baby also enjoys that. She sometimes snatches my Milo/bear brand from me and then sips it from a Spoon until she consumes everything! :)

I haven't tried enfakid because its really expensive. I am thinking or using Nan HA again but the pedia said, its better that she takes ordinary milk. I am thinking of giving her Sustagen junior chocolate since she's envious with her older sis who drinks bearbrand choco.

My son had problems with some of the formulas. He would get constipated and have a lot of gas in his belly. He cried and cried and cried. Finally we found a formula that he could tolerate. Carnation Good Start. Once we found it we never looked back. He began sleeping better and he hardly ever cried. Thank god for carnation good start.

I hope it will be vailable here in the Philippines. As of now, I am in the process of trial and error.
