Gentle on your child's tummy
More expensive than most formulas
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.
Not really worth it
It is easy to prepate, baby likes it, but nutrition wise its not superior to any product.
No side effects reported though. However there are huge issues with the supply. Everywhere restricts to 2 cans, which makes it difficult to reliably source it.
Thing is, that in comparison to taste, my kid enjoys other types of milk rather than A2
Over price for what you pay for
I bought for my friend new born baby this one, even my wife told me to buy S26 because nurse suggest. sample reason because i think they are more expansive.
my friend's baby drink once and got sick in hospital....
I search online after and find out A2 is one of the most "sensitive milk". After baby come back the nurse give the baby some NAN and S26 to test, all good.
A2 is base on chinese buyer to make them expensive, not real good.
Overpriced, baby didn't take to it
Bought this as my regular brand was sold out. My daughter didn't take to it for some reason, even after mixing with various degrees of water. It smelled like my other formula. It mixed well with warm water. It was more expensive than my ordinary formula, but I will not be buying this brand again.
Formula is fine, but do you guys could find the spoon inside?
I bought this formula for my baby to try, she is fine with it. The only problem is I cannot find the spoon in this tin which forced me to use my Belllamy spoon to prepare the milk. The bad thing is when I write to A2 customer care to check if I should find a scale spoon inside the tin or if they could send me one, no one reply me... A2 is the most expensive formula among all and the customer service sucks

My baby shows no interest to this formula
- You gonna digging in the can to find the spoon that is dumped in the bottom of the can.
- To prepare a bottle, you have to make sure that your boiled water temperature is above 70 degrees of Celsius at the time that you want to add the formula in.
- the number of spoons that you need to add in from formula to the certain volume of water doesn't change as baby growing up. For example, wether baby is 3 months old or 8 months old, you instructed to mix 1 spoon of formula to 50 millilitres of water that is above 70 degrees of C or 2 spoons f...
Didn't agree with bubs
After trying many formulas and settling on the best of the worst, baby was becoming more and more unsettled and reflux was getting worse. I read many good reviews about this formua and it seemed good for many reflux babies. I gave it a go and he would only drink about half of the bottles I made. Even with drinking so little it made his reflux terrible almost instantly. Spitting up for hours after feeding (it really smelled too, like real vomit) uncomfortable, and very grizzly. Only gave 3 bottles then threw the tin in the bin. What a waste of $34! I know all babies are different so it may be fabulous for some just not for us.
good for baby , but always out of store
it is a very good baby formula , but hard to buy it , if I can order on the internet that will be great !!!!
Not good for our baby, very expensive and not worth it
Thought the most expensive branded formula was good but produce lots of gas and bloating for our baby. She doesnt like the taste and after 2 weeks, she refused to drink much of it.
We switched to Mamia gold 1 from Aldi store and never looked back. Much better formula.
The selling point of this formula is the A2 component in the casein protein supposedly making it easier to digest like the A2 full cream milk. Firstly there is no compelling evidence that A2 is better for baby. Secondly since the protein ratio of whey vs casein is 60:40. We...are paying big bucks more for 40% of the milk. If baby cant tolerate casein at all, then an alternative is to switch to Nan Ha Gold which contains 100% whey and no casein would probably be more logical choice and cheaper too. Also worth mentioning, the whey protein in A2 platinum seems inferior to other formulas which contains alpha-lactalbumin eg: s26, Mamia. In my opinion, because of the hefty price tag, there is no compelling reason to try this product UNLESS you tried all the other cheaper brands first and know as a hunch that the casein protein is causing your baby discomfort. Otherwise you are just paying for things that you dont need.
So far sooo good
My baby started off with S26 gold n S26..no good..had to move on to aptamil gold which was all good for 8 months until last month. She started hating the bottle and simply throw away, screams and only take 60 ml at max in few hours
tried this after reading reviews and so far in 7 hours she has taken over 300 ml on demand..but she got constipated for 2 weeks. We have tried prunes..water..massage and every possible thing but no avail. Had to switch back to Aptamil gold and its good again.
Sorry didn't like you A2!
Very unsettled baby
I actually think that this formula was ok for my baby's tummy. She had no tummy issues or constipation. But, she was extremely unsettled on this formula. Would cry when I put her to bed - which she doesn't do usually, and which stopped soon after I stopped using the formula.
Not worth waiting
My twins have been on this formula with no problem and I choose it because stocks are generally quite good. But in recent month since going to stage 2 I found a lack of stock everyway. I have tried to write to them but not only they waited 1 week to reply when I'm desperate for more stock, in their reply they didn't provide immediate solutions to my problem or even trying to help. All they suggested is to wait. So I think no point being loyal and for those thinking of what to use for their newborn or wanting to switch please think twice about this one.
expensive and not worth the trouble!
This formula constipated my son at an early age and we even added extra water so this didnt happen but no luck and we decided to try again with the stage 3 once he was a toddler and it was even worse!! And is has a fishy kinda smell. Not worth 30+ dollars at all.
Didn't agree with my baby
Had high hopes for this formula. Baby seemed to like the taste but it gave him severe diarrhoea and then became unsettled after a few days. I gave it a few good days with no improvement.
Didn't agree with my son
After I stopped breast feeding my second son I tried Novalac Colic Formula before switching to A2 Platinum because he was constipated. He was no longer constipated but had diarrhoea. I gave it a week in the hope that it would settle, with no avail. He now has Nestle's NAN HA Gold which suits him just fine.
I was disappointed that the A2 didn't agree with him as I drink A2 milk myself and feel the benefits.
As every baby is different, what works for some, may not work for others.
