    I use Heinz because it's made in Australia. I have tried just bout every formula and each has something I don't like.

    I used Heinz and my son loved it. The chemist explained to me why its so much cheaper. Its because Heinz is a food brand whereas all the other formula brands are pharacuetical brands so they are taxed differently. Thats the only difference, its not a difference in quality.

    I used Nan initially for supplemental feeding for DD2 (because that is what the hospital supplied) but it left her with an unsettled stomache.

    We switched to Heinz on advice from another mother (and against the advice of the Child Health Nurse who said that switching brands can be bad for bub) and found she tolerated it much better.

    DD3 also used Heinz for supplemental feeds and it worked fine for her.

    And when DD6 weaned at 9 months, I gave her Heinz as well, and again didn't have any problems with it.
