    Default Which Brand of Baby Formula Do You Use?

    To start off the Breastfeeding, Bottlefeeding and Solids topic, I have created a poll for those of you who are bottlefeeding.

    Well we used 3 different types lol. We were put on infasoy when Paris was 4 weeks old because she had gastro and the Ped said she was lactose intolerant (utter crap) and said for her intestines to heal she need to go off breastmilk. And us being first time parents trusted and believed him. After that we had big problems trying to get her back on the breast and I persevered for 2 months and the LC said to stop because it was causing Paris psychological problems...she wouldn't let anyone hold her in the nursing position because she was distressed about feeding. She would go ridged and scream. It broke my heart so bad, so after months of trying everything we bottle fed with breastmilk for a couple of months and then after my breasts could take no more I changed to formula. We started off on Karicare, then Karicare Gold. Then S26 Gold.

    We haven't given formula yet, but I would only be willingg to use Baby Nat, as it is Organic. Many other brands can't guarantee to be free of genetic modification & who knows how that may affect little ones. Just thought I should mention this brand in case anybody has the same preferences as me but hasn.t heard of Baby Nat.

    Cailin - I remember so many mums coming into mums group saying that they were told their babies were lactose intollerant and using soy and some sorta goat milk based stuff. They're all happy cheese chompers now.

    I used the Heinz formula - the gold starter at first and then a normal follow on one, they didnt have the gold follow on one at the time.

    If you read the back, there's no material difference in whats in them.

    For the first few days when we were in hospital, they provided Nestle NAN for Aidyn (as my milk hadn't come in)
    But we switched to S26Gold when we brought him home (because a friend recommended it) and we havent had any problems with it at all, he loves it, and has stacked on the weight nicely!

    When I started weaning Emily I bought a tin of S26, but she hated it! So I tried normal milk...not a chance! I enentually bought the S26 toddler vanilla formula and she loves it! I thought it would be ok since she's 11 months, they say to begin the toddler formular at 12 mo.

    I'm now using Karicar follow on goats formular. Emily was having runny poos since weaning her, so I think it may have been something to do with thte cows milk. Wato has an intolerance to cows milk and was brought up on goats milk (they bought a goat to milk it when he was a baby). So fingers crossed it does the trick.

    we started on NAN HA (hydrolised milk proteins for easier digestion) when Livvy was 4 days old and we haven't looked back.

    Alex was fed on S26 LF which is the lactose free version.

    He was force fed (virtually) at the hospital after birth, as he had IUGR (interuterine growth retardation) and only weighed 1.9kilos.

    I breastfed him and supplemental feeds were formula.

    At 5months I weaned him from breast and he went onto s26 gold, which he loves.

    However, now he is lactose intolerant (can't drink cow's milk at all) but only for milk. He eats cheese, yoghurt and icecream but only in small doses.

    So he gets soy milk for bottles!

    Regards;

    i have been giving millana s26 gold but i am going to give nans a try as it is suppose to be easier to digest? If not i will go back to s26.Millana is quite a windy baby and that is why i thought i'd try nans.

    We went with S26 Gold as it is said to have all this additional stuff for brain development (LCPs). I am not sure if this is true or just good marketing but both my girls loved it!

    Georgia has the blue Heinz formula 'Nurture' I think it's called. It's one of the cheaper ones too so even better!

    Default milk

    My milk dried up at 4 months due to a fever, and I'd been reading a lot about how much nutrition was lost and then artificially added back in during the processing of baby formulas so I really didn't want to use an artificial food for my baby.

    I got my local health food store to bring in fresh goats milk for me twice a week, and diluted it to 60% strength with boiling water. Goats milk is apparently the closest available to human breast milk, and my little girl thrived on it. There aren't the same issues with lactose intolerance or casein intolerance that you get with cow's milk.
