Gentle on your child's tummy
More expensive than most formulas
Great formula, expensive and very difficult to find
Great formula, easy to prepare.
Baby seems to enjoy
No side effects were noticed
A2 has built a premium infant formula brand.
It is very difficult to get the formula from any supermarket or pharmacy, especially stage 2 and 3 which is almost impossible to get from any retail stores. It's also one of the most expensive formula in supermarket
Great. Low stock
It is great. My daughter loves it everyday with milk. Doesnt get sick of it. Its not too expensive and healthy for my daughter. The only problem is it seems to be hard to get a hold of as it is always low in stock so get it early while stock is available
Good but no stock
A2 has been known for its reliability and my nephew has always loved the quality of this formula. It is also easy to prepare. The only thing is that there never seems to be stock for stage 3 formula these days... maybe it's time to speed up the production line?
Baby loves it but a very hard find
Formula is easy to prepare. The baby likes the taste - have tried other brands and she does not seem to digest them as well as this one. The only downside is the availability of the product, now that she is use to it,I am hesitant to substitute for anything else but it is always out of stock (and when it is in stock, it is very expensive so I can only really buy two or three tins at once). Definitely try this if you have a fussy bub.
My daughter loves it
I was recommended by my friend to try the A2 Platinum formula and my daughter loves it. A can normally lasts 3 week and I had to stock up as supply can be hit and miss. I also found the nutrition provided by A2 is higher than other brands according to the labels.
Great formula for baby
My daughter has been always take this formula as she like it very much, we tried many different brand only this one fit her best. Other formulas easily caused my daughter having diarrhea but this one works well. However it is very hard to purchase as it is always out of stock. Wish the factory could increase more supplies.
Very happy with the quality of the product
As my baby had all sorts of gas issues from early on, I wanted to start her on a very high quality formula and I am glad I chose A2 as she did not have any tummy issue with this product. The only downside would be the price tag it comes with and it is a bit tricky to source it.
Great but expensive
My youngest granddaughter has turned 2 months and we're looking for a good baby formula to substitute a breastmilk. She is very fussy - she prefers breastmilk only and refuses to take formula. We tried many different brands and finally have found A2 platinum and Blackmores newborn that she is OK to be fed with. I don't see a big difference - they both are the tastiest we tried. I gave 4 stars only because of the price - it costs almost 2 times more than Blackmores. But the quality is very high, no doubt
It is easy to prepare. My newborn loves it and it seems to improve constipation compare to the brand she was given at the hospital. The only problem is it is so hard to find! It seems to be permanently sold out at the woolies and coles stores I usually go to. I can find a few cans at chemist warehouse from time to time. I usually stock up a few when I see them.

Fantastic product, but comes with a hefty price.
This formula seems to be everything that the tin claims, it has been great on baby's tummy, no constipation or tummy cramps. It dissolves really well when added to water. Doesn't smell as strong as others on the market, has a higher vitamin level than most other formulas, however at nearly $40 per ton, you would expect all that. It's a fantastic formula, but it's borderline on breaking the budget.
A2 Platinum Premium Infant Formula Stage 1 Review
A2 Platinum Premium Infant Formula Stage 1 Is such a good baby formula. It's not really hard to prepare that you just need to add the water into the milk powder and the baby loves it so much. However, if you use cold water or too much air mix with the powder. The milk will spit up from baby, so be careful with that.
It's good for my baby
Last two months earlier, I decided to give formula to my baby. I choose A2 formula which is very good product. A2 formula is good for my baby I know that. But my baby doesn't like the taste. At the end she finishes it. I very much wish to give this formula to my baby but I must try something else.
WARNING for those parents or careers who don't know from the media.
MOST of the people who seem to be "Stocking up" AREN'T MUM'S! It's people (Most are Chinese) sending it to China for their friends or relatives. It's obviously good but only the Australian version as we have have strict rules with food regulations, It's due to the cows milk that's in most of A2 brands. In China the mum's have A2 but have had problems with it from China's bad food regulations, Annoyingly it's legal to send gifts to people overseas. I know my son could only have a certain brand. If this is the only brand & certain types that is h...ard to get a hold of do what the Chinese people are doing & join up together mum's & friends or relatives & get in the supermarket earlier & each buy the limit 4 tin's per person so our children don't go without. Australian Women stick together for our kids!
A2 milk powder stage one.
I bought A2 baby formula from chemistware house. It is not a easy task to buy it because every time I went there, it was emptied there. But the quality is quite good compare with other brand, it is easier for baby to digest and absorb the energy from that. It's a good experience for me.
the formula is easy to prepare, change from the aptamil to the a2 as friend recommend to.
friend said a2 is very good for the digestion system of the baby, and as the baby pool a little,
so we decide to change to a2. the baby like it. not side effect

My niece loves this product
This product is very easy to prepare as the instructions are very clear. My niece has been on this formula for 2 months now because sister in law can't feed my niece due to her work. According to my brother, A2 platinum premium formula is very tasty and my niece is enjoying it.
I like this formula although it's hard to buy it.
the kid like it and always eat a lot. it's very easy to feed him
but the price is also a little expensive than other formula. but it worth to get it due to baby's love.
if the the coles/wws can have more stock, that would be good.
This is perfect!!
This is so great for babies!! The taste of this milk power is tasteful, and babies should absorb enough protein, calcium, and other vitamins on a daily basis. This product satisfies all the necessary need for a growing baby, I will definitely buy it again and other products of this brand.

My son loves this formula
As I mentioned above, my son loves this formula, he drinks three times a day, easy to prepare, just love it, but, somehow, I find out sometime if he drinks too much, he has few red sports around his month, not sure it is just eczema or something , but overall , very happy with this product
good product, worth to try! but difficult to buy...
it's a good product, I love it, but it's really difficult to buy recently. The A2 protein is good for my baby, and I think it's reliable. very easy to prepare and no side effect. even though it usually out of stock, I'll try my best to prepare enough formula for my baby.
