If so, could you tell me if you give it as a bedtime drink and if your baby has/had any problems with it?

 I have just changed from Nuture to this as it is for 1 yr + and she is 15 months so I thought it would probably be more nutritionally balanced for her age.  She only has formula at bedtime and still from a bottle. 

 It's the second night she has had it and its taken 2 and a half hours to settle her which is very unusual.  I am wondering if it could be the milk - she has had quite a lot of wind when I have been into her.  The main ingredient is demineralised whey and in nuture it is skimmed milk so I wonder if that has something to do with it - is it meant to be just a daytime drink?  She has cows milk to drink in the morning and with her breakfast but I want to make sure she is getting a good balance of vitamins and minerals.

Any information or advice would be appreciated - it may not be anything to do with the formula as she has got some back teeth on the way and I think she may be coming down with my cold but it just seems a coincidence - I had to resort to Calpol in the end!

 Hope someone can help!

I am still wondering whether to switch my sons milk to growing up milk and I would also be interested in how people have managed the transition.
