Smells very fragrant

published

The texture of the milk powder is more delicate. It is heated to 55 °C by the purified drinking water, and there is no obvious hanging cup phenomenon, which is quite soluble. It feels lighter, but it smells very sweet. Compared with other brands, the baby prefers some.

Purchased in March 2019 at Woolworths Physical store for A$35.60.

Settled on A2 after trying 4 or 5 other brands

published

Our Bub moved onto formula at 6 months.
We found that a number of other formulas we tried seemed to cause a lot of reflux/gas. For a while we went to a lactose free NAN formula and it caused less gas. We tried the A2 by gradually introducing it and we haven’t looked back since.

Made from Australian milk either in au or nz is a big bonus (we used Aptimal Lactose free sometimes until we found out it was made in Mexico!).

It is a popular milk, so we always need to ensure we have a spare tin. However if that gets low and supplies are still bad I can order 3 tins direct from A2 website and it’s delivered in a couple of days.

Purchased in March 2019 at Woolworths Online store for A$26.00.

Best formula Hard to get

published

My now 13 old months baby has been drinking A2 exclusively from when he was born...he is such a healthy and smart bub. I believe the milk contributes these. It is just so hard to buy this at the supermarket!

Purchased in February 2019.

It's ok

published

My baby enjoys the formula but then again he has a big appetite. He doesn't have any reactions and it's obviously easy to use. It doesn't smell like the other formulas but you do need to use it within 3 weeks then it starts to smell. But it gets really lumpy even after mixing it for quite some time so I'm not sure if that's ok. Also it does make baby gassy sometimes.

Great quality, very thin, little pricey.

published

We have used A2 to supplement for all our babies. Despite being aware of the questions around the scientific validity of A2 milks, we couldn’t deny the large amount of people claiming it makes a difference and wanted something gentle for our bubs. As first time parents, in the absence of any other real information on where to start with formula, this seemed like a good start.

We compared to others along the way, but found they were thicker, more bubbly, or gave our bub painful wind and reflux. It’s a little more expensive than others, but it worked for our bub, so for us it’s worth it.

Kinda strange

published

My baby didn’t like it because it was watery and smelt a bit fishy from the fish oil. Didn’t cause any issues but I don’t think it was worth the price. I will stick to goats milk which is easy to digest as well, that seems to be alot more creamier.

Best baby formula

published

I bought stage 3 formula of this brand for my little girl, she enjoys this one. Some friend told me that product of other brands may cause allergy, so they recommend this one to me. Up to so far, my little is fine with this brand. It's easy to prepare and my little seems doesn't like other products.

Terrific for baby

published

Reflux baby responded well to this formula. No clunks and mixed well with water. Always seemed content after bottle. Super easy to prepare. Loved this formula but two downfalls. One is that is rather costly and I never saw it on special. Second is that it was stressful experience finding it stocked on supermarket/chemist shelf. Sometimes I would go through up to 6 different stores before I could locate a tin.

Baby loved it

published

I started my daughter on this formula from 3 months old. She loved it. It is sooo easy to prepare. It is quite a popular formula. The only downside is that it is very hard to find at times. Which is understandable due to the fact that it is a really good formula. It also was not hard to wean her off the formula to ordinary cows milk. Which was great !

Not good.

published

My Baby wouldn't finish his bottles. When he did he would do smelly spews more than once. Upset tummy all the time. Went back to aptamil. A2 was not for us.quite disappointing considering the price I paid. Bought 2 tins unfortunately can't get my money back for the unopened ones. Not happy.

suitable is the best ~

published

A2 main is rich in a2-β casein, this protein is closer to the protein of breast milk, more closely fit the human digestive system, more natural care of the baby's belly, and does not contain a1-β casein, reducing the baby's constipation, diarrhea, bloating and other conditions, conducive to the long-term development of the baby. Very good of a formula. In fact, the choice of milk powder is safe first, followed by whether the baby likes, absorption effect how. As long as the baby does not repel, absorption effect is good, then normal, no constipation diarrhea situation, is very good choice, suitable is the best ~

My baby drank this milk powder for the first time and drank milk powder for several days. It's not bad. The baby has nothing to adapt to, everything is normal! Milk powder is not too sweet, light! Solubility is also good! Quick! The baby is very willing to drink! And i fell very happy.

The excellent baby formula

published

I admit it is pricey and not easy to buy. I have to visit the supermarkets and the chemists several times to buy some. But it is a great formula. It is the regular brand for my baby. It is easy to prepare, melt very quickly. My baby loves this one. No reflux, no flare up, no any side effects. I recommend this brand if you are a new mom.

Stopped working

published

My newborn seemed fine with the formula but she began to get bad gas and constipation at around 6 weeks..I still have 2 unused tins and there's no way I could get a refund. The formula also smells really bad once it's cooled down. Was very disappointed as I generally prefer A2 milk.

My baby is on a2 and her poo is very runny. She goes once a day or every other day. I thought formula fed babies’ poos have pasty consistency? Is my baby’s poo normal. She has had this runny poo for a month now.

We have had the same problem, with a heap of gas/wind that we have been able to relive 30-40% via infocol. Our child is also on Losec for reflux
