    Default which baby formula do you use?

    having trouble deciding on one.. I remember when my dd was little i had her on Nan Pro Gold, and it took forever to wean her off it, it had a quite sweet taste to it, she could just taste a massive difference between the formula and her cows milk.. it was so difficult to get her to drink it. and with ds he ended up on Novalac Sweet Dreams formula, and he was able to be weaned off it instantly pretty much and onto cows milk.. no probs there..i found it didn't really taste sweet at all, very similar to cows milk in fact...

    so just interested what formula you use?

    We used s26 gold, mainly because you could also buy it ready made in cartons ( for out and about, works out expensive though) had no probs with it, but it has been known to cause constipation in some babies.

    "used"

    We've purchased lots of brand but most of them have been thrown out due to the 4wk open limit. DS doesn't like formula. DS doesn't like breastmilk in a bottle.

    In the end if it's mostly carbs and is thrown away, we decided to just buy the cheapest stuff...

    I used s26 gold till 6 months then go to Heinz.

    At 12 months I start mixing the formula with cows milk to get the used to the taste and slowly lower the amount of formula until its all cows milk.

    We use Heinz. Both my babies get constipated really badly on S26.
