    Thanks - do you know where you can get it? I've never seen it in the shops...

    It's not available in supermarkets, just pharmacies. I used to buy it at the bigger ones like Good Price or Giant Chemist as the smaller ones would charge sometimes $28-$29 a tin. I used to pay $25.

    And all the vitamin/fat/sugar contentshave changed.
    I don't work in a lab so I can't tell you extaclly what the 4+ extra ingredients are.. But they don't sound so nice.

    I'm really ****ed off about this!

    I'm sure they will change it back.. But until then I have to go through the process of finding another formula.
    DD is 18mo and has been advised to stay on formula (she also has allergies)
    I'm thinking I will call her specialist tomorrow and see what one will be good for her to try, she was on neocate and ElleCare when she was younger but under her specialists advise we switched to NAN HA when she was 12mo with no issues.

    Some formulas have ingredients derived from egg (which my DD is severely allergic to) and before she was on neocate I remember some brands sent her into an allergic reaction.

    I'm at a loss at what to do.

    my 10mo baby girl has been on nanha since a few days old (comp feeding) and fully since about 4 months.
    i haven't noticed any change with the new nan except there are times where she doesn't want her bottle or drinks only a small amount.
    because she is 10 months i've started subbing one of her 3 bottles a day to cow's milk so that in the next month or so she is fully on cows milk.
    i changed up to the nanha 2 and she seems to like that a bit better, it doesn't seem as 'granular' as the nanha 1 for some reason. i think they have added some sort of a non binding ingredient as the old nanha 1 used to get quite 'clumpy' at the end of the tin, where the new one doesn't.

    I changed to nan ha gold when in the neonatal unit with my daughter a few weeks ago and after so much effort to get her feeding and starting to put on weight I don't want to change her formula but also don't want to open the new cans I have in the cupboard as it's the new stuff. We have s pediatrician apt on Friday so I'm going to get his opinion.

    I can't believe nestle aren't taking parents seriously!!!

    Wow this is completely disgusting. Not good publicity for nestle, hope they do something quickly.

    My 4 week old daughter has been very sick the last 2 weeks. Incredibly agitated, unsettled, constant vomiting, rash on face & neck (although this could be hormonal), green runny poo. She has the exact same symptoms as the other mothers complaining & all the mums in my Due date group who are using this formula. Most have been diagnosed with reflux & put on medication. We will be changing the formula in the morning. I am so angry that the formula could be the cause..

    Subscribing. I am not sure what to do either- I am comp feeding my 12 day old- 40ml expressed breastmilk and top up with formula- the new Nan HA. She seems fine though- settled, light yellow pooh that is sometimes fluffy, sometimes a little firmer, no gas and goes straight to sleep. I am not sure whether or not to swap... I have heard Karicare is good?

    Karicare gave my dd terrible wind but maybe their ha formula is better.
