Bring back the old formula!!!!

Started using aptamil A.R when my baby was just 5 weeks old as he suffers from reflux. AMAZING!! We noticed a difference after the first bottle. And now they have changed the way they make the formula, what a disaster, our poor little man was back to his old ways instantly. So miserable. To say I'm disappointed would be am understatement. We now have to go through however many formulas to find another.
We were happy with the product as it was, you shouldn't have to change it.
From ONE VERY UNHAPPY MUM. Show details

It took me trying 12 different formulas to finally find the perfect one for my son and now I'm back to trying new formulas again. The old formula was PERFECT!!
We never had a problem with it. Ever since my son started drinking this new formula he's reflux has come back and he's also either constipated for a couple of days or just doing poo explosions for a couple of days. It also doesn't dissolve that well! I shake it for ages and there's still chunks when he's finished or it blocks the teat and he screams. I'm so disappointed in the new formula. Bring back the old one! Show details

Bring back the old formula!!

We loved the old formula as it cleared up everything for our little man. Now with the new design it has caused the reflux to come back and constant poo explosions. Why change something that was working? Listen to the consumers as you have lost business with us and sent us back to the drawing board to find a new formula. Show details

Life saver well worth $$

This formula is a life saver . I was breastfeeding and my baby Had silent reflux would scream whenever put down to sleep and nigjt was hours of it. Tried this after being told my baby had GERD and I was too sick to breastfeed with mastitis. My baby slept like 10 hours straight after having a bottle of this. And ever since had slept through the night and never had the same crying reflux issues Show details

Perfect, no more vomiting

My baby is enjoying this formula, no issues whatsoever. Yes, the formula is thicker than most but you expect that with an AR formula. I have cut a slit across the top of the teats to assist with feeding. Bowel movements are more frequent, much smellier and larger in volume, again, something you expect when using formula. The formula is easy to prepare, my baby has bottles at room temperature and i find it doesnt get as thick as when the water is heated. Very very effective product. Show details

Think twice, before you buy, this one needs special teat

I do not want to give one star, but the product is not fit for purpose, it is extremely thick like porridge, which we tried three different bottle and the baby still can not drink.

It will be good in future it can label in large print it needs special bottle? it is very thick, buy with caution.

Please, Aptamil, see how many reviews like this - too thick.

Aptamil refused to refund or swap over, which put stress amid coronavirus pandemic - $27 wasted. Show details

Helped with acid reflux

My son is formula feed from the beginning. I used to use NAN comfort which was good but my son has reflux problem so doctor asked me to something which will help him for reflux. Pharmacist said it will help him and it did but the powder doesn’t dissolve in the water completely. I am bit worried as the milk is ok or it’s meant to be like this. The milk is quiet thick which is hard for baby to suck even if we are using fast flow for my 7 month old. Show details ·  1

Had high hopes

So I brought this for my 6 week old who suffers silent reflux and colic after using the Aptimal for colic and constipation which worked well but he was still vomiting alot we thought we would try this one. Unfortunately I'm really disappointed as it's so incredibly thick my poor son has a hard time sucking it out even with fast flow teats, and is now back to waking every half an hour because he's still hungry because he literally can't get through a bottle.
I wish I had of just stuck to the colic and constipation as this formula is quite expensive. Show details

Hi Honnie-bel you could add the Aptamil Feed Thickener to the Aptamil Colic and Constipation to make it a little thicker for the reflux. Give us a call at the Careline ph 1800 438500 for any further assistance. Sue Careline Nutritionist

Improved reflux for 5 week old

We switched to Aptamil AR from another popular brand recently due to my 5 week old having r reflux issues. Since the change over his reflux symptoms have improved and he has starting sleeping for longer periods of time as the formula works to stay fuller for longer. Formula is easy to prepare but does go quite thick if left out and not given immediately after preparation. Show details

So thick that baby could not drink through teat!! Terrible product!

Bought this formula as my baby has been very unsettled and gassy with other formulas of the same brand and prepared the formula to take out with us only to find that when it was time to feed my baby, she could not suck the formula through the teat as it was too thick! I opened the bottle to find it looked like thick custard. She could not drink that so we had to buy another formula for her to drink and that one has been fine for her.

Would not buy this product again! Getting the 4 I bought exchanged first thing tomorrow!! Show details

Great for AR but

Love that this has completely stopped his vomiting and almost stopped his hiccups, but he has very,very runny poos. I am not sure what to put him on next as I like the formula just not the pooing. Any suggestions? Show details

No more vomit

My son has been vomitting every feed even though he burp after every feed, upright position , and small increments of formula per feed he still vomits. After reading a lot of review about this milk I gave it a go yesterday so far he didn’t vomit at all. It really settles well with him and He took the formula straight away. Show details

Very stressful time feeding baby this! Wasted money

Was using NAN AR and things were going great, but the vomiting came back after a few weeks. Bought a tin of aptamil AR and took some with us to a friends house and OMG did bubz scream the house down as the teat was so blocked. (We use Avent variable flow teats). The formula just wouldn’t come through the Teat at all. Even had to pierce another hole through the teats and she was so frustrated by then. We had to drive home with a very hungry screaming baby and put her straight back to NAN AR. Happy baby again, just have to put up with the happy vomiting. Would be great if the company would recommend a bottle and teat in the tin which is suitable for this formula. The consitency is like a thick syrup. Show details

Very good! Works great!

Very thick, perfect for reflux! Only word of advice would be that you must upgrade your teat to the biggest size or else it won’t come through! Easy to prep! No side affect and very little came up after feeds. Have also found that she doesn’t really need to be burped afterwards either!

Gave my bub a horrific upset Tummy

I changed my babies formula to this aptamil gold AF as she has a mild silent reflux. The formula is very thick and frothy, filled bub up so she had a good sleep from it but took a while for her to drink as it’s so thick. It did help a little with her reflux but on day 3 of this formula she got horrific diarrhea! To the point where I was changing her nappy 3 times within 10 minutes! Apparently they changed something in the gold formulas and it’s upsetting babies tummies :( I’ll be switching back to my organic formula and trying a different route for her! On the other hand this formula worked amazing for my friends baby girl but it may have been before they changed something in this formula!

Should have put baby on it as soon as I transitioned

Absolutely love this formula my last baby was on it who was severe reflux and it worked from the very first bottle. The formula is thick and it does say to make at room temperature but my baby loves her bottle really warm and it’s just a little thinner but she has zero issues with keeping the formula down. The only issue I have is if she is going through a growth spurt and having several bottles a day more then normal I have to give her probiotics so she doesn’t get constipated which I’ve experienced in the past but now know how to manage it. It’s worked fantastic for my last 2 babies and if we chose to have another and come across the same issues I’ll know what to head for straight away

Stays down. Doesn’t smell

Bub puked up all other formulas, this was the only one that stayed down. It does get thick quick, but we just prepare it and feed him immediately. Sometimes needs a shake halfway through so lumps don’t form. It can sometimes block the holes too. Smells WAY better than A2.

Didn’t constipate, made him relax and sleep!

Easy to prepare and my baby loves it. All the other anti reflux ones gave him terrible constipation and this one gave him Mr Whippy stools! Helped so much with the reflux and seemed to keep him satisfied enough to start sleeping through the night! The price is pretty reasonable too!


This was a lofe saver, loved it

My bub was on a different formula, but after every feed he would throw up what he had just drank, i found this formula, it was fantastic, easy to prepare, the first time i made it he drank the whole bottle and kept it down, he loved it, he put on weight, he drank whole bottles, he stopped crying because he was hungry and slept. No side effects apart from putting on weight

A life saver

Bubs suffered from silent reflux. It was hard to get drs to listen so I did my research and found this ar formula. I found it did make her constipated so I mixed 50/50 with Aptimal gold plus then slowly weaned her down to 1 scoops of ar with 3 normal for a 200ml bottle. Try mixing if you are looking for a less constipating AR formula mix

Niece likes it!

The formula is easy to make and very simple. Also easy to clean (if your a clumsy person), niece seems to love this stuff! She hasn't suffered any reflux or throwing up after consuming this (id say that a plus)she loves drinking some before bed.

Plus its almost always sold out in stores, so it must be decent.

Premium product at a premium price

This formula is really easy to prepare, and is great for babies suffering from indigestion/reflux.

It is a high quality product filled with great nutrients, but comes at a dear price unless buying in bulk.

It seems to be popular with bub, and my family's kids also seem to have no problem

Great for reflux

This formula is easy to prepare. I had 2 x really bad reflux babies we swapped to this formula and we finally got sleep at night again. There was no side effects except a great nights sleep lol.

I recommend this formula to people who have babies with bad reflux!

My daughter loves this formula

The formula is a lot thicker and took my daughter a week to get used to but it totally saved her from the pain of throwing up and reflux! We love it and have such a happy baby now because she is full and not vomiting. Highly recommend this to our friends and family

Life saver

This was the greatest formula i have ever used. I only got to breast feed for 3 months before i dried up so finding a formula that worked for my chucky baby was very hard and expensive. My daughter used to chuck up alot after every feed breast and bottle so it was great when after her first bottle of this no chuck. Helped her sleep through the night and left her much happier. Could be better on price but worth it.

Great for my reflux baby!

I switched my baby to this at 7 weeks as she was suffering from really bad reflux. Within 3 days I noticed a huge difference- baby girl is now 9 weeks old. She stopped throwing up every feed, stopped being upset so much and started sleeping right through the night. The only thing I reccomend is using a faster flow teat as it is quite thick and make sure you make it as you need it otherwise it will thicken up from sitting in the bottle. But our household loves it and will be continuing using it.

Hard at first but keep at it!

At about 2 months I found my baby had bad reflux and my GP recommended Aptamil AR and we are still on it 2 months on. At first it was hard to get used to as it was quite thick and it took ages for my little man to get through one bottle but after a while and after buying some medium flow teats, he got the hang of it and now loves it. He no longer has bad throw ups so we’ll be sticking with it until he gets a little older.

We haven’t noticed any bad side effects for our baby except for maybe that his poos are a little thicker..

Tip: buy some medium flow teats as the milk is quite thick.

This has been amazing!

The formula is easy to prepare, it helped so much with my son who suffers from reflux. He enjoys the formula and we have had no issue in the 6 months of using it. My only advise would be to make sure that you buy the variable flow teats as it will not go through the normal teats.

My favourite!!

This was my go to formulae for my son who suffers from reflux and colic. It does include a thickener so if not used at once it will thicken in the bottle and get hard to give at a later stage. It was also harder to find in stores and was a bit more expensive than other brands but definitely worthwhile.
