    Not for you if you don’t like any seafood or smelly fish oil scents…
    My lil bubba developed colic from drinking this. Bubba didn’t like the taste.


  • Tried before

    3 out of 5

    Apparently this is my milk when I was a baby so I also bought for my daughter.
    Oh my she hates it, she keeps on spitting it out. I have to discontinue it and used other brand.


  • Smelly

    0.5 out of 5

    I tried this first for my son, couldn’t get past the smell.
    It smelt like wet dog food.
    Don’t mean to be so blunt but it did and I wouldn’t get it again


  • One of the best formulas available

    4 out of 5

    S26 Gold stage 1 is a great formula to use during the first 6 months. It doesn’t have an unpleasant smell and bubs enjoyed drinking it. Didn’t notice any problems that some babies have when drinking formula.

    The packaging has changed over the years but the product hasn’t.

    Highly recommended S26 Gold newborn for any new mum’s.


  • Great product

    5 out of 5

    I have used s26 gold formula with all my kids, although over the years the packaging changed the quality has not. I highly recommend this baby formula


  • Perfect formula!

    5 out of 5

    This formula was the best for my bub. Gentle on his stomach and he absolutely loved it. We have since moved on to the next stages. Easy to use and doesn’t smell like some of the other formulas we tried when trying to find the best one for my bub. It is a reasonably priced formula and is worth the money.


  • great product

    Both of my girls did not do so well with the s26 gold 1, they both had bad projectile vomiting with it, they could not ot keep it In, was to heavy for their little tummys


  • Great Product

    5 out of 5

    I didn’t really know what I was doing when it came to formula. I had some problems early on and my brother in law brought over some formula for my partner to use. It was what they had used. She used S26 Gold exclusively and we never had any problems.
    It was also always available in the supermarkets when I needed it.


  • New formula bad odour

    0.5 out of 5

    Since the changing of formula this product had a number of tins that produced an unpleasant odour


  • Works better than the original

    4.5 out of 5

    My son started off with the S26 original but it kept upsetting his stomach, so I tried him with the S26 newborn gold and it works so much better and hasn’t had an upset stomach since


  • Great formula

    4 out of 5

    This formula has been a life saver. I use this as a top up for baby as I’m not producing enough milk at them moment. It’s quick and easy to make up and have given us peace of mind that our daughter is getting enough milk.


  • Go Gold

    3 out of 5

    S26 Gold is a lot more gentler on babies tummies than S26 Original. Worth paying the extra money if definitely determined to use S26. Still has a strong odour like the Original but is much easier to mix up in the bottle. Seems to be a bit finer in the powder.


  • Great choice of formula

    3.5 out of 5

    I have used this formula with both of my children. My first, we tried different types and they seemed to upset her stomach. So straight away used this when my son was born and never had any problems.


  • Wonderful for their growth!

    5 out of 5

    I used this for my son who was breastfed but was always hungry and S26 saved us for the tip offs. He is now five and a dtrong brother to his new sister who is almost three weeks old. Similar to her brother, out daughter is always hungry even with breast milk and with top offs from S26, she has settled well. A brand I definitely rely on and trust!!!!


  • Great Formula!

    5 out of 5

    We used S26 gold for our first baby after lots of drama trying different brands. At the time we felt it was a never going to end and then with S26 she finally settled and was feeding well. So then it was our ho to formular with our 2nd and 3rd baby. However with our 3rd we would find it hard to find especially if it was on sale. So we would usually buy a couple when it was in stock.


  • Simple gold

    5 out of 5

    Currently using this with my 7 week old to top up breast feeds. It has a very starchy smell but we have not had any constipation (possibly due to breast milk) or vomiting other tan twice in 3 weeks.


  • Great choice.

    4 out of 5

    I have used this formula since my first was born 15 years ago. I would highly recommended to mothers but be warned that the added iron can cause constipation.


  • Bub didn't like it

    3 out of 5

    Bub was on goat milk formlua before, but when the brand he normal drank was no longer available, I switched him over to this one, but he didn’t like it.


  • Great product, not great price.

    4 out of 5

    S26 Gold Newborn has fed both my girls post breast feeding with absolutely no digestive issues at all. But at $25 a tin its only downfall is its price.


  • Only brand I use

    4 out of 5

    Great


  • Great product

    4.5 out of 5

    Love this product. Bubs didn’t mind drinking it. Bubs didn’t get constipated while on this formula nor an upset stomach. The only brand I’ve used.


  • My go to formula

    4.5 out of 5

    Love the S26 Gold for my daughter. We have the occasional bout of constipation but after trialilng a few, we have found this the best formula for my little one so far.


  • Highly recommend

    5 out of 5

    I highly recommend this formula! I am a mum of three and all 3 of my babies started on this formula from 4 months old. Never had any problems with constipation, babies loved it and now my 5 month old is thriving on it after falling a weight percentile from my reduced milk supply. Happy, chubby baby equals happy mummy!


  • Perfect

    5 out of 5

    Tried my daughter on other formulas but she was always vomitting and very difficult to burp. My mum suggested S26, as it’s what she used for me. Tried for my daughter and its been brilliant. Now onto the S26 Progress


  • Great product.

    4.5 out of 5

    Very easy to mix up and heat. Bub loved it. The packaging is well done. The little scoop is an essential tool. So grab yourself a tin today for your baby.


  • Full tummy

    2.5 out of 5

    I started out using this formula with my son until I found out he was lactose intolerant it keep his tummy full and we were doing few feeds it’s a great product
