    Noooo!!! I noticed it was hard to find lately. DH lucked out and found 2 at our local CW. Both our Coles were sold out.

    I'm going to be buying all I can find next week. Running out would be horrible.

    Another tip is to try smaller chain pharmacies like Chemist King and PharmaJoe. You might have to pay more though.

    If anyone is in Brisbane looking for this formula, there is a shop in the Kmart Sunnybank Hills Shopping Centre. It's on the level above Aldi. It's $28 a tin. I hope this helps someone

    There's one in the shopping centre across the road too near Big W.

    Hong Kong has customs limits of only 2 tins being allowed out of the country because of so many issues with it being taken back to mainland China.

    What annoys me is Fonterra (NZ dairy company) supplies Nutricia with the milk solids powder. They have built massive dairy farms in China that are doing absolutely NOTHING when Nutricia could open a plant over there and have extra business without anyone being affected.

    I gave dd cows milk today and now she has awful diarrhoea and it's burning her little bottom even if I change her immediately.

    Very true.

    While it is a bit annoying to have it be a bit hard to find, I have no issue with anyone buying it and sending it back to family. I totally understand them wanting to feed their babies safely after what happened. They are buying it at the same price as us and they are supporting an Australian company. I think bellamys might just need to increase their supply.

    Prescription or somehow linked to a medicare card with strict limits on the number of tins that can be purchased per month. While I feel for the babies in China I don't like the thought of Australian babies starving because so much of our formula is going straight to China.

    I agree, every baby needs to be fed. I have no problem with people sending it back to family but the pop up stores selling it at a premium price are the ones causing the problem. One of the ones in Sunnybank Hills actually has Chinese labelled tins so one could assume they buy it there, send it here and then sell it and send it back....?
