    Our bub is 4 months old, and has 1 formula feed a day - have been doing this for about 5 weeks.

    We started with Heinz nurture (constipation), switched to bellamy's (far WORSE constipation) and have just started trying Karicare plus.

    To begin with it was mixed with expressed milk, and she took it fine. I don't know whether that actually made any difference since we didn't start off with full formula - we may just have a baby who isn't particularly fussy.

    We tried bellamy's and it didn't agree with dd at all she's now on karicare aptamil gold plus

    She was ebf until 4 months when she weaned herself

    they sell little trial packs at chemist warehouse so you don't have to buy a full tin first

    Good luck!

    So many variations! Our hospital put DS1 on Nan HA Gold when he was in the SCN and gave us some to take home so I could mix-feed while he gained weight and strength. No problems with that for us at all - I mix-fed for a few weeks then DH would give DS1 formula once during the day if I didn't have enough EBM when I went back to work when he was six months old and he was fine with it then too.

    We started with S26 however it made DD extremely constipated, we switched to NAN-HA and never had a problem.

    I tried S26 gold and DD turned into something from the exorcist so I then tried bellamys organic and it is great!! Highly recommend

    S26 wasn't good for our little one either, we also switched to Nan-Ha.
