Lufesaver for my bub who has milk protein allergy
We decided to give this one a go As a last resort before having to go towards prescription formula after various formula trials. This has been a lifesaver. His poos are back to normal, no more wheeziness, eczema cleared up and less tummy problems. It is alot easier to prepare compared to novalac allergy and his poos arent as foul smelling on this one.
It is also priced reasonably well. The only issue is that it is extremely hard to find them. Alot of chemists never have any in stock. Im thankful my chemist lets me bulk up on them when they do have them in stock as bub really needs it.
Mixes well and no bubbles.
I'm 8 weeks into motherhood, and as we all know nothing ever goes how you plan!
My plan was to breastfeed my boy, but turns out my boobies don't work very well.
Whilst I was having one of my home midwife checks, the midwife said I needed to put my son on formula asap as he wasn't gaining enough weight - my mother in law was over at the time and offered to pick some up for me. My midwife said it didn't matter which formula to use so she advice my MIL to just grab whatever.
My MIL's children all had allergies when they were babies, so she gra...
good for allergic baby
My friend's baby has allergy to protein. He has to drink this one. But I heard this one doesn't have too much nutritions compared to normal ones. So my friend prefers to feed this to baby first and after the baby gets better with allergic problem, switch the formula to normal one.
Ideal for babies with milk protein allergy.
We tried numerous different formulas, all of which caused my baby to break out in hives and worsened his eczema. After finding out he has a milk protein allergy, we were recommended to try a hydrolysed formula. This was the only one we tried that didn't bother my sons stomach or skin.
Couldn’t live without it!
Love this formula. My daughter has CMPA and after breastfeeding for a year I wanted to switch to a formula so she was still getting all the essential vitamins. She can’t have any dairy, so I use the formula in cereals etc instead of cows milk. She also prefers the taste of this formula compared to other milk substitutes (ie. soy, almond etc).
did what we needed. Saved us
our bub wasn't sleeping and clearly unsettled. We took a long time to figure out it was dairy proteins (not lactose). While we were figuring it out we went to this formula which has all the proteins broken down (soy and non-cow based can cause similar problems - but by all means try them). Sometimes we had to phone around to find it, sometimes it was at the supermarket. but it wasn't worth switching to other formulas when this one worked for us
This helped us get through my baby's reflux.
Easy to prepare. Baby took it fine. This in combination with medication was the only thing that helped his silent reflux.. We tried going back to a regular formula but he flared up again. Not the nicest smelling of formulas. My kid lived off this for the first year of his life and he is thriving.
Solved our problem, mixes well unlike soy
We got this after our 3rd baby would not sleep through after 8 months, still getting up 3 x a night. This pretty much solved it, and was recommended by our pediatrician. The product looks and mixes the same as the normal Aptamil, which is good. The soy one we had first never used to mix properly.
Was a life saver
After trying many different formula’s this one didn’t have my baby screaming in pain like all the others.
It so gentle on little ones tummy it’s amazing.
Easy to prepare. Smells a bit like maple syrup. Dosent upset tummies.
Only downside is that you can’t only purchase from a chemist.
Worked well for my reflux baby
My baby hated formula and it seemed to mess with her tummy a lot. I thought I would try this for something different and I'm glad I did. It smelled and tasted less "chemically" and really seemed to reduce her reflux problems. The only downside is that you can't buy it from Coles/Woolies, but I would definitely recommend it.
Easy to digest for my bub
My 11 week old has been having this formula for 4 weeks now and has tolerated it really well. We are suspecting a cows milk allergy as he did not digest other formulas very well and had wheeiness, congestion and a nasty rash. Since being on this formula, his bowel movement are more regular and the other symptoms have resolved. This formula is really easy to prepare, it dissolves well. He seems to enjoy it. I wish it came in a non-gold option though as I don’t like the fishy smell it has to it and the bottles are hard to clean because of the oil. Other than that this formula has been great for our baby.
My baby has tried many formulas for her allergies and this one really works for her . Would be great if the super markets carried it as I can only find it at Iga stores or chemist . The super markets are always sold out of your normal formula not sure why but maybe they should order more in .
My little boy ended up being milk protein intolerable and he took to this formula well! The longer he was on it the more of the problems he had disappeared (mucus poo, pulling legs up, grunting) . Definitely worth a try he stayed on it until one year an ttwo months.
Dosent agree with my LO.
This forumla is easy to prepare. I dont like how watery it is tho.
Bub drinks it no hassles. But shes been on it for 3 days now and she is having explosive diareaoh, Very watery, Smelly and yellow. She has broken out in a rash on her face and neck. I haven't been told she has an allergy but i tryed this for her reflux as i read good reviews. Unfortunately it isnt the right forumla for my LO.
Will be changing as soon as i can see the paed.
Good pricing but hard to source this forumla.
Good for upto 2 years
I bought this formula for my little one who is allergic to milk protein. Initially it was very hard to feed him, but with daily trials she started taking it. Once her age passes 2 years, she started refusing it again, have moved to rice based formula from then. This is not thick formula, & preparation is easy like all other formulas.
It was a nightmare finding a formula for my son! We tried S26, S26 Gold, Nan Comfort, A2 Platinum, Aptamil AR, Novalac Reflux, Novalac reflux with feed thickener, karicare goats milk and then finally Aptamil Allerpro Gold+ I had a severely reflux, colicky baby and it took six months to be diagnosed with a milk protein allergy. This formula saved my life!
Terrible for reflux baby
This formula was terrible for our baby, who had very bad reflux. I thought I'd try it based on all the great reviews. We eased our baby onto it by slowly but when she was fully on it she spewed every feed and had diarrhoea for a week. I personally think the formula is too thin and although in hindsight I could've tried adding the Aptimal thickener I saw bad reviews for the thickener so was wary to do this.
The only formula which worked for me!
My 12 week old baby had allergic reactions (reflux, colic, eczema, diarrhoea) to both cow's milk & soy formulas & when I put her on Allerpro ALL her symptoms stopped within 2 days! It's a thin formula so she does feed more frequently (every 3hrs) but worth it for a happy, pain free & settled baby. I highly recommend you try this product.
Works for us
This formula has worked great for our baby over the past 10 weeks since newborn. Baby doesn't have any allergies, but we decided to try this product anyway. Slightly less thicker formula than regular formula. Baby has taken to it very well and has had clear skin, no rashes or bumps at all.
It is just right for my son.
The formula is easy to prepare with warm water and a bottle. My baby is allergic to cow's milk when he was born. I served him with the product and he is totally fine with it. There is no side effects in my baby as far as I can see.
Questions & Answers
My 7 month old twins were on HA gold + but we recently moved to Allerpro 2 on the advice of our GP. However I am finding that they are getting hungry a lot quicker than before and wake up several times a night and have about 150ml each time. I noticed that the tin says 6-9 months is 240ml water and 8 scoops of formula but they can't have that quantity in one go. Help please!

Hello. We habe recently been advised to change to AllerPro for mixed feeding for suspected lactose intolerance. My infant is 3 months old, but we were only able to purchase a level 2 tin of formula. She will likely only be using it for 2-4 weeks with 1-2 formula feeds a day... is it ok to use the level 2 formula for this short amount of time? Thanks in advance:-)
I’d probably give the company a call to confirm, or ask your GP or paediatrician. My mum was getting some of this for me a few weeks ago and the pharmacist said that it’s all a bit of a marketing ploy to have the three different levels, as when you look on the tin there’s a little bit less iron which is because at that point bub should be on to introducing solids which may include food rich in iron. Sometimes if the level two isn’t available, I’ll buy level one and my bub is eight months old. We switched him over about two months ago to level two and he had a bit more reflux than normal so we went back to one. We’ve only started him back on two about 3 weeks ago and he seems fine on it now.
Hi there Lauren. The AllerPro Stage 2 does have a higher osmolality, meaning that it has more particles per ml of solution, so requires the kidneys to work harder. We would not suggest that a stage 2 formula milk was used for a baby under 6 months for this safety reason. It is however perfectly safe to use a stage 1 formula to provide the milk portion of an older babies diet without any concern, as the extra nutrients can be obtained from solid foods. The AllerPro has reduced lactose but is not lactose free.
Please feel free to call us directly on 1800 438500 (or live chat us on https://nutricia.com.au/early-life-nutrition/aptamil/expert-advice.html ) so that one of our Dietitians, Nutritionists or Midwives can give you personalised advice to help you find the best milk feed for your little one's current situation.
I hope that things improve soon.

My 12 week old baby is now only drinking this formula. No longer breastfeed. She also has confirmed milk allergy.
She is tolerating the formula well, just when she passes wind it very very smelly.
Is this normal?
If she is still doing her normal poos, sleeping okay and throughout the day seems normal, this would probably just be a reaction to the whey protein, as your little one has a confirmed milk allergy this is probably just a reaction to the casein in the formula. You could call 13HEALTH too and see what they say, or just bring it up when you go to see your doctor next for her next checkup or immunisations.
