    Default Which formula do you use ?

    So I'm currently on a script of motilium to help boost my milk supply which never happened for first DS 9 years ago.

    I'm BF and having to top up with formula on 1/2 the feeds I'm doing in a 24 hour period

    I have the blackmores newborn to 6month formula but have found that it is causing DS to become very windy and on some days he is constipated.

    Hate seeming DS is so much pain because of this so I'm going to switch formulas and was wondering which ones do you use that hasn't caused you any issues at all ?

    Thanks in advance

    For DD3 I am using Nan Optipro. I've formula fed all three of my girls as I had extremely low milk supply. My older two were on S26 Gold.

    we mix feed and use bellamys organic. we used s26 gold a few times early on as I'd been given some of the travel sachets. no issues with it but I found the strong smell (like potatoes) a bit off putting. the formula itself was fine for my ds.

    Thanks ladies my mum brought home 2 different formulas for me today. The bellamys organic and Heinz nurture. Here's hoping one of them works well when DS needs their top ups at night.

    We use bellamys & have since about 6 or 7 weeks (6 months now). We haven't had any problems with it.

    Bumping

    So DS is nearly 12 wks. Has been mixed fed since he was a few weeks old but our paed and myself thinks he may be dairy intolerant so I'm using the karicare plus soy but was wondering what the difference between this one was and the karicare aptamil gold + allerpro as DS hates it I would to it's tastes disgusting.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I to have to go on a dairy free diet . No chocolate freckles or kit Kat they are my sanity.
