  • Families I know have all used Karicare. One had to use Goat Milk Formula as her baby is Lactose Intolerant. At that time it was in very short supply. There was a limit of 2 per purchase – if you could find any. I know one Mum who actually rang stores and pharmacies to find some. A 2 hour round trip and she got some. She had to do that several times. One Mum swapped to the Aldi brand with no issues. Besides it is made by one of the main manufacturers. We just don’t know which one. I know one Mum who tried just about every formula a few years ago. She had to resort to buying the premixed one which is in little cartons as it was the only one he would drink.


  • I used S26 with my first. But with the other two, I have been using Mamia (Aldi) , its has around the same amount of nutrients as other brands however it’s so much cheaper. Hence why we are using it. We haven’t had any problems with it.


  • If your baby has anti reflux,karicare aptamil ar is good for it


  • Been mix feeding my baby with blackmores newborn formula. He seems to like it and has less constipation issues which he did get when on aptimal gold.


  • Nan supreme


  • I personally think Karicare original, its gentle on the stomach and if bub has colic its really good.
