My 4 1/2 month old baby doesn’t seem to like the same formula milk for long periods of time.
So far, I have been changing from Anmum, Novalac (due to him having colic), then to Nestle Nan and now Enfalac A+. He wouldn’t even go for an oz if he doesn’t like it.
Your advice please.

Kindly note that babies up to 6-9 months have not developed varied taste buds as bigger children or adults. Your baby will accept any formula if you remain calm and persistent.
Please resist changing formulas. It’s not due to formulas. It’s due to the anxiety around feeding your baby.
If he refuses the feed, don’t force. Wait an hour or two then try again. Remember that the more anxious you get, the more anxious he gets. You need to move out of that vicious cycle.
- Start with small frequent feeds.
- Don’t force feed.
- Reduce distractions around baby during feeding times.
- Don’t give water.
It is vital that your doctor monitors your baby’s growth to ensure adequate nutrition intake as well.
I hope this is of some help.
