Another karicare goat here!! At 6 months we went on to Heinz follow on and now at 12 months dropped bottles, my DD was never really into drinking bottle or BFing.
And I agree with purplecat, 100ml is awesome! I
FTR - Yes i'm a big believer of b/f and did so for 5mths, but now currently FF (prescription) due to allergies with my DS - so this is an unbiased post! We all need to do what's best for our bubs.
Don't stress OP, bub WILL let you know if she is hungry
I remember at my daughters first health check up (she was 1 month old) she was having 120mls every 3-4 hours.
Is your Bub loosing weight?
That's the only time I would be concerned with how much there getting.
One thing my peadi told me, is not to stress when formula feeding about how much there getting because if she was on the breast I would really have no idea how much she would be drinking, she might be on the breast for an hour and get 20mls or she might be on the breast for 10mins and get 100mls.
Babies were never designed to have a "standard" amount of drinking.
If bub is gaining weight, then there is no problem.
Well I browsed in Woollies (still have not decided on whether to supplement) and they did not stock the Bellamys Organic - how disappointing! they are looking into it for me.
I compared the iron levels of the different formulas and suprisingly the gold varieties iron levels were on par with the original formulas.
The Karicare aptamil was slightly less in the iron level too so I guess this could be an option.
I know woolies do stock Bellamys , obviously not all tho. Ive always seen it at coles too or u can get it online. They often have specials
