  • Nan pro gold was always fine for my kids, they nevertheless had any issues with it.

  • SMA cheap and bub loves it

  • i would say spend that extra little bit more money and go for bellamy’s. even if only for the fact that the milk used comes from aussie cows vs american cows.

  • Yes, i’ve also heard good reports about Nan.

  • Karmic and Nan ended up being good options for us, after much trial and error and constipation and so on.

  • We trialled Karicare I think its called at that wasn’t too bad but we liked S-26 Newborn, our baby took to it and had no problems

  • Pretty sure if you went to a chemist, they would be able to professionally advice you on this

  • I only ever used S 26 Original Newborn. It has worked well for my first daughter and for my second daughter as well. I know that S 26 Gold can cause tummy problems as I heard this from our Child/Family Health Nurse.

  • I highly recommend Bellamy’s Organic. We’ve tried a lot of formula’s with my kids and its the one I always go back to.

  • Thanks. I have heard good feedback about Karicare Gold. :)

  • My daughter is now a teenager, but when she was a newborn I used Karicare Gold – not sure if it’s still available. It was recommended to me by the staff at the maternity hospital where my daughter was born.
