For those who formula fed or mix fed from birth or very early on, what formula did you choose to use first, and how well did baby tolerate it? I'm packing my hospital bag right now and I'm planning on mix feeding my twins from birth at this stage, so I need to pack my own formula and bottles. I was thinking of trying Karicare first, as they have a multiple births club, and so after they're born I'd be able to order in bulk and discounted from them. However I've read awesome reviews about the Aldi Mamia formula, and the price per tin is comparable with the discounted Karicare price, and with a MUCH higher star rating on the productreview website.
Anyone have experience with either of these formulas and their brand new bub, or any other recommendations for one that's not too exxy? I've also been considering HA formulas as I'm wondering if they'd be gentler on their tummies..

Formula for newborn?

I formula fed my dd1 from two weeks old due to no milk coming in and my two younger ones from 1 week due to low milk supply. My older two were on S26 Gold, however dd3 (6months old) is on Nan opti pro HA and it's been brilliant though it's pricey @ about $30.

Due to supply depleting but is fine now as I'm in motilium I DP bought blackmores newborn but found it was to strong my DS tummy and caused to much wind so I sent my mum out to get belamy's infant as it's organic and has good reviews from mums on here and she came home with heinz No 1 in the blue tin, it was on special at big w 2 for $25 And boom easy on baby's tummy and very very little wind. I only had to use for a week til my supply picked up again. Sometimes the one you want doesn't work unfortunately so you have to try more then one

I would start with the Aldi one.

The Aldi one is one of a very select few made in Victoria from only Australian ingredients.

I fed my DD exclusively on ALDI newborn from 7 wks onwards until 14-15 months (first due to supply issues then due to milk protein sensitivity) with no issues.
It's a brilliant product that is almost identical to NAN Gold I think from memory??? At the time I compared the ingredient list of ALDI's to all the other formula's at Chemist Wharehouse.
I also liked that it's Australian made with Australian ingredients.
