Looking for the Best Milk for A One Year Old

Change is good.

I'm getting really excited searching for the next right milk for Venise. Her first birthday is a just a couple of days away and I'm so pumped to change her formula milk already. She's currently in Promil Gold (previously S26 Gold). She lost a lot of weight since using said milk and I dunno if the milk is the culprit or her excessive "kakulitan". Venise is already becoming a handful to her lolo and lola. She doesn't want to be carried anymore, she wanted to explore around the house on her own! Sobrang kulit talaga! And I think that's probably one of the reasons why she lost some weight.

So now, I'm looking for a milk that will bring her body back to her S26 Gold days. She was super duper cute then. Check out these photos:



Now she looks like this:



I miss her uber cute double chinned face and her fluffy "longganisa" arms. :)

My TOP choices would be Pediasure (lots of good reviews), Gain Plus Advance (one of the most expensive brands and wouldn't be expensive for nothing) and Progress Gold (to continue her Wyeth series).


Any insights mommies?

Hi po. My Baby started using S26 din during 0-6 mos. then switch to Promil Gold noon 6 mos. kaso d sya nag-gain weight. My Pedia recommended Hipp from 6 -12 mos. nag-gain naman sya ng weight. Kaso ngayon 1 yr. old na sya parang ayaw na naman mag-gain ng weight laging 9kilos lng. Pinainom din sya ng Pedia nya ng Heraclene pampagana. Gumana nga kaso 9kilos pa rin siguro malikot kasi sya. My Pedia recommended to take PediaSure from 6am-6pm then Hipp from 6pm-6am. However, upon my observation sa kalikutan ni baby d pa rin sya nag-gain weight tapos ang mahal ng PediaSure at Hipp. I decided to try Bonnakid and I can see the improvement after 1 week. D ko pa nasabi sa Pedia namin that I switched to Bonnakid kasi I'm still observing kung tuloy-tuloy syang maggagain ng weight.

hi i had just read this as im looking for reviews for progress gold milk user. My son will turn 2 this coming june 12,2014 and ive been using enfa series for him since birth pro i also tried gain plus on him pro I may be looking for something extra special effect like he will get to eat more, or would look more chubby like before. yet i dont want to compromise premium milk over mas mura. yet somehow, when i see bigger babies than my son, id be surprise to know theyre using bonna. which i always wanted to try pro his pedia would say, not to compromise ung premium milk just to have bigger baby kasi its only sugar. so somehow, as mom, if we could only strike both, chubby na + premium milk pa. i wonder if i could achieve that with progress. whats the milk of vernice when she turned 2? thanks in advance
