Not good for my baby

published

My grandson was on this formulae and we had to change it as his bowel movements were loose and green. He was always unsettled. Since changing the formula he now settles and his bowel motion has returned to normal. Why would this happen?

My Boy loves it but he has poor weigh gain!

published

Over one month ago my little boy refused breast milk from bottle ( his average breast milk volume was 550 ml a day although his weigh was 6.59 kilo; but he gained good weigh with breast milk) and I had to search for new formula for him. This was recommended by my GP to give a try. He loved the milk instantly and demanded for more very fast, two weeks after first introduced A2 stage 1 he reached volume 900-1000 ml a day and now his kilo is 6.80. His bowels movement is better after one month drinking A2, now is about 2 days. But! He is not gaining good weigh despite of the volume intake and he is losing his cheeks and double chin. So We are looking for new formula now!

Purchased in June 2020 at Chemist Warehouse for A$37.99.

Easy to prepare

published

Quick to prepare, with minimal time spent preparing it. My baby has no side effects to drinking the formula. My baby seems to enjoy drinking it as she drinks a lot of it, compared to other formulas that I've used in which she drinks less of it.

Purchased in May 2019.

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.

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.

Good enough but a bit expensive.

published

This A2 platinum formular is pretty good. Easy to dissolve when mixing with water.

At the hospital, they provided NAN, since I only used a couple of times, can’t give fair review on that. So purchased A2 platinum by reading other reviews. $36 per can is almost one of the most expensive one on the market.

The only reason I’m rating this 5 star is because the baby farts a lot and really smelly with this formula.

Wasn't good for my baby

published

This formula is very easy to prepare but is very thin/watery. In the begining my DS was eating well and appeared to love and enjoy the formula. I would say the consistency of the formula is close to that of breast milk. I found that my DS was not satisfied after each feed and would wake up every 2 or 2 and a half hours for a feed.
He also became constipated and started to vomit after almost every feed. We ended up changing his formula straight away after he started the vomiting.
It may be good and work for some but it is not for all.

Not for my baby

published

This milk's texture is just like breast milk. Easy to make and dissolves very easily. Light milk, looks yumm. Bought this after seeing review. I know any a2 type milk is good. Unfortunately it was not for my baby. My baby was constipated. It was hard to open his bowel. Every baby is different.

Not Good Value For Money

published

This was the first formula I used for my baby and I can't see how it was worth the $36 you pay for it. It was difficult to prepare as the water needed to be hot, 70 degrees, and tasted metallic. It made my Bub gassy and gave him lots of reflux which other formulas on the market didn't. I wouldn't buy it again.

No allergic reactions from my baby but not available.

published

This formula is one of the few that our baby enjoys. It didn’t cause any tummy issues and it is well tolerated. It has a good smell, easy to clean as well. The issue is that it is not always available in the market. Lots of parents are stacking this one.

Great starter formula

published

Great starter formula for our newborn, it was easy to prepare and baby always settled and slept well. He did experience some discomfort from constipation and his skin appeared oily. This product is particularly expensive compared to other brands and was out of stock on more than one occasion which ultimately influenced our decision to change.

My baby doesn't really enjoy.

published

I just stopped breastfeeding last month and had to find stage 3 formula for my baby. After doing some research online and asking some friends' advice, I chose A2. Well, this is surely hard to buy and pricy. Finally got it but my baby didn't really enjoy. Have changed another brand called S26.

Good for Juniors

published

Very easy to prepare. Dissolves quickly without sticking it to the cup. We were trying to find a formula for my 4 year old but only fortunate to find this brand as other brands normally does not cover this age group.

This is the only product available in my store and cannot compare with other products. Kid seems enjoying the formula in first months but now he only drinks half a bottle. Not sure he does not like the taste anymore.

Seems very good, however caused constipation for my 2 babies

published

Formula is easy to prepare, it seems the best of the best nutritionally, however it caused constipation. We bought a lot and really tried for my 2 babies, however both of them had constipation issue with A2M, maybe is due to the formulation or heavy ingredients. We, whole family, are using A2M cow milk, so we really want to be able to use this formula, but sorry, we couldn't. Can be very hard to buy, stock is low everywhere

Good product, bad production

published

I grabbed a2 from the start was my wife was having trouble breast feeding. My son did like it. Though once we got to stage 2 supply to Western Australia started to slow down. Unfortunately we had to change formula as we couldn't get any around where we live (all sold out and still is). A2 did send us 2 tins where I ran them up in a panic (overnight delivery).

Just starting

published

Easy to prepare. Baby is breastfed so just starting out with formula so we can all get a night out. Enjoys the taste of the milk, and I would be sure that he would drink it regularl, but not so sure about the teat. No side-effects whatsoever. Chose A2 as an alternative to regular milk. Hoping to see some good results.

Good formula

published

A2 platinum premium formula is a good formula.
But I am not happy with the shortage of this product...specially satage 2. So I would recommend to new mums , better not to start with this formula. Because if we change formulas in between it's very bad for tiny tummies. And if you ring their customer service phone no. they say your baby is fine with stage 1 for first 12 months. Then why do they have different stages ?Should have just one stage only.

hard to buy

published

We choose A2 formular for our baby as we thought it is better than other brands. Actually we cannot tell if it is good or not as baby will not tell you what he thinks.
Anyway, it is quite easy to prepare, our baby seems happy and normally will have long sleep after have it.
One thing i am not quite happy is. A2 formular is so hard to get/buy, it is always out of stock. i normal have to shop around 3 or 4 supermarkets to get one.
