    So the second and third ranking ingredients are glucose syrup solids and glucose (dextrose).
    Which is why we should research them and find the best one for your child - My SIL uses Bellamys Organic , her daughter now at 18 months is lucky to have 100ml a day and that's at bed time

    Ingredients:
    Organic full cream milk powder, organic skim milk powder, organic maltodextrin, organic demineralised whey solids, organic lactose, organic soybean oil, inulin, organic sucrose, lecithin (soy).

    Also, lets be realistic... Toddler formula is made from cows milk anyway! So if your little one tolerates cows milk fine then it's just a waste of money to use the powders. Both are processed, it's just that regular cows milk is LESS processed than toddler formula.
    Totally agree.

    What's the advantage of using this product over cows' milk and a normal diet?

    We found the cost of toddler drink was less than cows milk, work out how many litres you could make from a tin versus the cost of that number of litres of milk? This was even before we factored in the cost of the organic milk we buy (but perhaps before the coles/woolies milk war).

    I am a bit sus on the cheaper milk, there are so many different types but only one ingredient. Hmmmmm....

    This is what we will likely use as we currently use stage 1 Bellamy's.

    In an ideal world we would have breastfed until 2, humans are the only animals that once their children are weaned give them milk, formula while not ideal is made for humans, cows milk is not, yes most infant formula is made with cow's milk, but it has been modified and supplemented with additional nutrients and is far easier to digest

    we used goat milk formula ( there is no goat milk toddler formula available here) Which is why I kept DS on his stage 2 formula for a few more months
