I've used both for my bub & nan comfort is the formula for her.
I tried bellamys first but it made her terribly constipated. We tried it for 3wks.
You many need to try a few before you find the one.

We have just started NAN comfort on DS today - I too had a gut feeling about the karicare gold too, he was quite fussy after, and he hasn't done a poo since yesterday so I didn't want to continue on with the karicare. Hoping NAN comfort works! The lady at the chemist said it starts breaking down as soon as they're fed the bottle, rather than in the gut, so shouldn't cause as many issues.

I used nan ha gold and my ds was having the same problems. A few Hubbers suggested bellamys and I cannot recommend it highly enough. He is so happy with it and it has really eased his discomfort.

We have always used ballamys with no issue. Ds1 specialist said it was a basic formula that is generally well tolerated when I told him he was on ot.
I just went with it because it is mostly organic.

And the plus or gold formulas have added iron I think it is. It can be too heavy for many bubs do if ballamys doesn't agree with them maybe try another basic one.

i'm nearly at my witts end...so i tried karicare comfort, then bellamys.
my baby girl is still having trouble digesting it. shes on the ballamys now and she keeps throwing it up and is getting like a ricotta cheese like substance in her mouth. her poos come out soft and ok, but every 2 days.
i have also given her infants friend, which i think helps a bit with the digestion.
i may need to try goat milk formula or lactose free

Sorry for my late reply everyone.
After going through many formulas I finally found one that works! The ironic thing is it is the one I stayed away from as it is the cheapest therefore I thought it would be the worst! SMA!
My boy is now 5 months and is doing well. He is on losec daily and just started solids. He now only just has the small baby spit ups so I am still doing heaps of washing but he is so much happier and so am I!
He still does the occasional projectile vomit but only when sick.
What formula works for one baby may not work for another so unfortunately it is trial and error. One thing I don't like is the GOLD formulas, I found them very constipating.
All the best to everyone who is going through what I went through, it is awful but you will get there

My DS is 4 1/2 months and I ended up at about 3 months using Nan comfort. It's been great. He was on Karicare de lact but he had the hardest poo and struggled to pass .

If bub is on losec, it must be silent reflux as it stops the acid production, it doesn't neccessarily stop the stomach contents from coming up.
In many silent reflux cases it can be caused by a dairy intolerance (either lactose or cows milk protein) in which case neither of these formulas would be ideal.
Were they suggested by the GP or paed who diagnosed the silent reflux?
