Needing help and advice

My baby 2 months old was on karicare later to discover she has a cows milk allergy . We got put on this prescription formula (pepti Jnr ) I am also breast feeding but wanted her used to bottle feeds to as I’m only expressing on one side due to tissue damage on other . She’s refusing to drink this formula as it’s got a much bitter taste it’s been so hard whilst I have to wait to refill to breast feed she won’t even take the bottle if she’s soo hungry . I’ve tried putting electrolytes to make it sweeter but still nothing Show details ·  1

Happier bub but poo constantly

My bub is now 15 weeks young and paed suspect he is allergy to cow's milk hence put us on this formula. We noticed he is much more settled and his eczema subsided after 3 days of having it. However he has been pooing in very small amount constantly and causing the skin around bum red and sensitive. Not sure if this is normal though. Show details

Perfect for our bub

Our bub started stalling with weight gain and then by the 6 week old mark was losing weight. Was checked for infections, full bloods and nothing sinister returned. She was finally admitted to hospital for 6 day where they diagnosed a cows milk protein and soy allergy. After being on pepti junior she started to gain weight and her eczema disappeared. Many nurses and doctors commented that she may not like the taste and struggle to take the formula- however for us this was not an issue. The smell is not wonderful, but for me that’s a small price to pay for my daughters health  Show details

AMAZING product

This is a fantastic product. I used this on both my kids. Absolutely amazing, Totally settled my babies down and they loved drinking it.They had no side effects and it was very easy to use. I tried a different product on my first child, but changed over to this formula and haven't looked back. my second child went straight onto this.

This formula has been lifechanging for my baby!

After a couple of days on this formula my baby is no longer puling his little legs up in pain, he sleeps through the night and best of all there is no longer any blood in his stools. It's an amazing product and I thank you endlessly for making it available. This formula mixes easily, my baby seemed content at the first sip/suckle of his bottle and I haven't noticed any side affects from him being on this formula

Fantastic formula that tastes like breast milk to my baby

Baby loves this formula! He enjoys it more than the breastmilk I think. I’d read a few reviews that said babies don’t like it if they’re used to breast milk but the opposite is true for us. Never have trouble getting him to finish a bottle. No side effects really, maybe a little more noisy gas lol! But no wind pain or anything like that. Really pleased. Seems to be tricky to find a pharmacy with stock though, it needs to be ordered in.

We bought our first tin over the counter with pharmacist before getting a prescription from our GP.

Amazing for my kids

Both our girls have a cows milk protein intolerance and this formula has been amazing! It took us a while to get on to this formula with my first born, but once we did, she was a different child! No going back! My second we noticed the symptoms sooner and got her straight on it. We get this formula on script and get 8 small tins at once.

Lifesaver!

Thank goodness for this formula. I have used it for both my babies after having been diagnosed with a cows milk protein intolerance. They both thrived on this formula. Their skin improved, tummys were not bloated, they slept better and were genuinely a lot happier in themselves. Both my babies were tiny, and they put on weight really well on this formula. Changed mine and their lives.

Hello, we have been on Novalac Allergy formula for 5 weeks since stopping breastfeeding, but our 8 month old has had diarrhoea on and off so dr thinks she isn’t tolerating it. We have switched to Aptamil Gold+ Pepti-Junior and will try it for a week to see how she goes. What is a ‘normal’ poo on this formula? With Novalac they said dark green and thick was good. So just wondering what her poo will look like if she is tolerating this formula.

Hi, our 4.5 month old has had eczema all over his face and body. Before switching to Pepti Junior he was on Novalac, which seemed to have cleared the majority of his eczema. However, since switching to Pepti Junior it appears the eczema is returning. Could this be because Pepti Junior has dairy which could be causing the reaction?

Hi, is there a current shortage of Pepti Junior? Our paed is providing us with a script but has said that there is no supply of it available right now. She has recommended Allerpro when it's not available - what is the difference between the two? Are they both extensively hydrolysed to the same amount?
