It works well for my baby so far

Its works well with my 4 month baby , I purchased Aptamil Gold + Reflux yesterday. she was able to drink her first bottle and finished it immediately. I put her on a2 at two weeks and normally been spit up/ returned a lot of milk . She haven’t spit up any milk since yesterday, she been pooping well and she is very happy. I hope nothing changes. Show details ·  1

Very unhappy baby

Our 4th (very happy & peaceful 4 month old) baby would spit up quite a bit after all feeds but never seemed bothered by it. However I thought to try this reflux formula out thinking it mite assist with her regular spit ups but it was the complete opposite.
3 days of the inconsolable screaming, crying and constipation. Day 3 I threw the tin out and went back to her original Mamamoo as I most definitely prefer a happy, settled bubs that spits up rather than no spit ups but she’s miserable and uncomfortable.
A definite no go for us! Show details

Terrible product

Is meant to help with reflux but does quite the opposite. Same day of trying this our baby was projectile vomiting and not themselves. Poor product and not what we expected of a Nutricia product, as they are generally quite a good name. Starting to question the quality of all their products now. Do not buy. Show details

So many poos

My baby been on this formula for 14 days now. My poor baby poos INSTANTLY after drinking the formula. So much so that I am having to change the nappy straight away and change her outfit as it has leaked through :( I have woken to her screaming in pain and then she let's out gas shortly after. Unsure if it's helped her reflux but it's not worth all the pooing. Would not recommend Show details

So thick and barely dissolves in hot water

I purchased this formula today my 4 week old daughter has been breast/bottle fed and I was using Karicare. I decided to change after I noticed karicare formula was giving her belly aches and reflux.

So I thought I’d give this formula a test. It’s so thick it won’t come through the teat. It also barely dissolves when I prepared the bottles, it’s all cluggy even though I pour boiling hot water into the bottle then add the 3 scoops. Looks like lumps of dried flour sitting in water.

Unfortunately I wasted money and won’t be using again. Show details

Good after a few weeks but bought second can and it's even thicker,

He cant suck it through the teat!!! Got another can first thing this morning and it's back to being like the first can, is this normal between cans???
Needless to say it was a bad night for my little baby. Show details ·  2

Okay but very bad gas pains

We moved our son onto Aptamil reflux formula at 2 months when our doctor gave us a free tin. It worked well for reflux but he has such bad gas pains. We tried everything to relieve the gas but he would still scream at least 5 times a day due to gas pains.  Show details

Good for reflux but not good overall

It fixes the vomiting and reflux issues but gives my 3mth old baby bad wind. If you want your baby to cry after every feed then this is the formula for you. It’s very thick and bottle teat gets stuck. No more reflux only rarely but baby vomits very thick stinky milk. Makes my baby poo every feed with stinky yellow runny poo. Good for reflux but that’s about it. Show details

Works for reflux but makes baby constipated

My 3week old baby has been drinking aptamil gold newborn fine but notice he would get abit of reflux, so thought we would change to aptamil gold reflux the other night. Since being on it he hasn’t been able to poo , has been passing gas all day long and crying/screaming from pain. Wish it worked for us because we did notice he havnt spilled up milk yet
But will be changing back to our old one for now  Show details

I have started my 8 week old on aptamil gold reflux he is pooping 4-5 times a day and it’s yellow pasty poo. Is this normal he’s been on it for a couple days now.

Hi Jay, The thickener in the formula is a fibre so it can add bulk to the poos. Things should settle down in a few days as baby's gut gets used to the formula. If you need any further help please call us at the Nutricia Careline 1800438500 Cheers Sue

3.5 month old baby born with nasal regurgitation and kept in nicu for a month. Baby has been on Aptamil reflux for 2.5 months the nasal regurgitation is still happening but no where near as bad as it was on other brands.my concern is she has runny mustard/ yellow poos after or during every feed. Is this considered normal? I’m changing her upto 10 times a day. A lot of the times she looks like she’s struggling to poo but and pushing and vocal about it… is this normal ? Confused ftm

Hi Medusa, poos can be runnier and larger volumes when using the Aptamil Reflux formula but that does sound a bit excessive! Please call us on 1800 438 500 so we can ask some more questions to help you further- kind regards, Hilary

Hi there,

I’ve been using the Colic & Constipation formula for a month or so with my now 3 month old who was only doing number 2s every 4-5 days and in pain, and this formula helped keep him regular but he seems to vomit a lot after each bottle and continues to vomit until his next feed. This happens almost every bottle (occasionally we get lucky) we tried the Reflux formula which seems to help him keep it down more but it blocks him up more and his having a lot of trouble getting it out of the bottle teat.. we moved up a teat and it was a little better but still not great.. they don’t offer a vari flow teat for these bottles.
Is there a different option for us to try? We can’t seem to get it right. Or do you have any other suggestions?
