I'm looking at changing my lo Stage 3 formula.
I'm currently using karricare aptimal gold + stage 3.... I'm unhappy with it for numerous reasons.
We have always used karricare aptimal gold + (dd was mixed fed from birth - 6months) then just ff from 6months... No problem with the other stages.
I am looking for suggestion of other brands (I know each bub is different, but would like to save some time and $$$ getting people's opinions, instead of trying every brands to find the best!)
I have 2 main concerns -
1. this stage 3 makes my lo VERY constipated (its definitely the formula - and has now been put on a "laxative" like syrup, which is meant to be safe for long term use, but I'm a bit weary using if long term!)
2. I have found this formula very sticky (although they state no added ____ sugar, the table sugar can remember its name)
Once calling karricare aptimal, iv been informed it does infact contain extra sugar! But not a "dangerous" sugar (ie table sugar)
Also have a few other issues (but they petty and don't want to waste everyone's time writing them! )
Sorry it's so long!
*** I have also recently posted another topic about weather to stay on formula or change to cows milk, and for now iv decided to stay on formula***
