    Default Looking for formula advice please?

    I'm looking for advice (not judgement) please.
    I've formula fed my other children using Heinz nurture in the past, and want to do the same with this baby, but my local supermarket has stopped keeping it. Can anyone recommend another formula which is similar in how simple to digest, the Heinz nurture is?

    There is a supply issue at the moment. I really have no idea about whay would be similar but have you tried Chemist Warehouse? They buy in bulk and usually have tins when supermarkets don't. You can also buy online if there isn't one local to you.

    We used s26 gold with no probs but for some babies it can cause constipation. I think a few people in here have recommended Bellamy's (I think)

    I used Nan HA with my DS with no problems. I've tried DD on it but she doesn't like it so we're using Bellamy's, which is going well.

    The Nan HA 1 recipe has changed since DS was young and doesn't agree with some babies. I only tried the 2 with DD because she was over 6 mo. It was fine, in that it didn't cause any problems, she just didn't like it. Bellamy's hasn't caused any problems (wind, constipation etc) and DD has silent reflux.

    With DD1 I used Heinz Nurture and it was easy to find. With DD2 it's been much harder to find, most places don't stock it anymore. I had the most luck at Coles and Chemist Warehouse, sometimes big W.

    I've just recently swapped from Heinz to Goats Milk formula. The price jump just about killed me! Double the price of Heinz.

    Where abouts are you located?

    I would go with Bellamy's or Karicare although I think there is also a shortage on Karicare?
