    Default Which formula for 4mo?

    I'm trying to get my 4mo to drink formula and have tried Heinz but it seems she doesn't like the taste.. What brand of formula do you suggest I try that she might like? TIA

    I use Karicare Aptamil Gold for my little one. She doesn't seem to recognise a difference between breast and bottle.

    DD had Nan HA Gold when she was very little, and then the regular Nan Gold when she was a bit bigger (can't remember exactly when we switched). We didn't have any issues with that one, so just stayed with it.

    Default Which formula?

    My LO's on Bellamy's Organic and definitely has no signs of weaning from the boob! After trying NAN HA Gold (constipation) and Karicare Aptamil (diarrhea), Bellamy's was a god send! Which just goes to show every baby will react differently so definitely a personal thing!
    But in saying that I've yet to hear a negative thing said about Bellamy's, it's certified organic and Australian made

    Nan HA gold here, my bub is mixed fed, the ECHN said it was the best one, easiest to digest for a BF bub, and that has been true for us. My next choice would have been bellamy's as its aussie made- I kind of hate having to buy nestle, them being the devil and all

    We started with Heinz Nurture but have recently swapped to SMA, it keeps him fuller for longer

    We are the exact opposite here- started DD on SMA (we used it with DS so just decided to continue with it) and after researching different brands and talking to our GP and CHN, switched to Heinz Nurture after about 2 weeks as she as very constipated from 5 days old.

    All babies are different OP, you may have to try a couple to find what suits your baby best. What works for one bub may not for yours.

    Default Which formula?

    My DS was very fussy when I tried to introduce formula - he rejected a few.

    He eventually accepted Nan Pro, but I had to mix it with EBM to begin with, eventually increasing the ratio until he drank the formula on it's own.

    If I had another baby and wanted to introduce formula I'd try Bellamy's Organic.
