    Default Is there a formula that is Australian made- using Australian ingredients?

    As the title asks!

    Is there a formula that is Australian made- using Australian ingredients? I have tried a few different searches but many only come up saying Australian made. Some of the formulas I have never heard of!!!

    Heinz nurture is made in Australia (the main reason I use it) but I can't find anywhere on the tin about where the ingredients are from

    Yes, I used Bellamy's for DS1. It's not from NZ, it's Tasmanian. Australian made with organic ingredients.

    Bellamys is Australian but made with imported and local organic ingredients. It seems there are none. BTW how naughty did I feel very obviously pregnant looking at the back of formula tins! I felt like I was a teen buying condoms or a DH buying tampons...oh the SHAME!!! lucky I have broad shoulders!!!

    Why? Feed your bub however you need or want to! The shame factor with ff is polarised on here- I don't think anyone seeing you in the shops would have batted an eyelid
