    Default Best formula for a new born

    I am having my baby girl at the end of February & will be bottle feeding as I have never previously been able to produce milk.

    I was just wanting to get your opinions for the best formula.

    DS1 had to be bottle feed so we tried s26 gold but he got a bit constipated & grumpy I then changed to Nan HA & he was a much happier baby.

    So, do I just buy the Nan Ha straight up or do you have any better ideas???
    Thank you

    if you were happy with that then i would try it start off, we used s26 gold for the first 6 months then swapped to bellamys organic, next time would skip the s26 gold and go for the bellamys organic straight off. good luck

    We used s26 Gold as well, and it did make DS constipated. Doctor recommended the regular S26 and we never had any problems.

    I had the same problem. My ds was on s26 and was constipated all the time. I was recommenced by a child nurse to use Nestlé nan ha gold. It's was great.
    Then with my next three children after weaning from breast milk I went straight to nan
