Formula return to sender, no refund, ignore all my emails
My order has been return back to sender, they promised will refund me. The parcel has been return long time but they never refund me. I tried to contact their number but always busy and asked to leave message and I did. I also emails them but they never reply me back. The totally ignore me. I can’t believe this company act like this. PLEASE REFUND MY MONEY before I report you for fraud.
Shortage in all stores last couple months
There had been a shortage and mostly no stock in all stores and supermarkets the last couple months. Out of desperation I placed an order on the Bellamys website. It has been more than a week and the product has still not arrived. I phoned and emailed and was told that order was complete through Australia Post. I sent a follow up email and now they tell me there was a delay due to high volume. See attached image. Very unprofessional

Very windy and constipated
I have been slowly trying to wean my baby off the boob and onto formula but over the past few days of only giving a couple of bottles my baby has been so windy and constipated which is such a shame as I love the idea of bellamy’s! So we will be looking for anew formula for our transition from breast to formula.
Made baby unwell and disappointing response to customer inquiries.
Needing to wean six month old baby to formula due to difficulty breastfeeding. Saw on website that Bellamy’s suggest that the step 2 follow on formula may be most appropriate for this, however, given the milk proteins in step 1 seem to be more similar to breastmilk I contacted Bellamy’s using their online form. Was sent the exact information given on the website, which not only did not answer my question, but I had indicated that I had already read. Decided to try the formula anyway - gave a bottle that was 75% breastmilk and 25% formula made up as directed. Unfortunately, bub began projectile vomiting after having just this small amount of formula. We had previously tried a small amount of the old bellamy’s formula, which she seemed to tolerate. Called the Bellamy’s phone number, as I am very keen for some insight as to whether there is a particular ingredient in the new formula that may cause this reaction and hoped their dieticians may be able to help. I haven’t had any response after leaving a message, so really uncertain what to do next in terms of trying a different formula. Disappointed as really wanted to be able to use Bellamy’s products.

Great product but never available
I am a big fan of this formula but I am constantly fed up with it not being available and sold out. I am now switching my son to another formula as I can never get this.
Caused extreme diarrhea and vomiting
My 9 month old was thriving on the stage 1 (was marketed up to 12 months at that stage) but with rebrand, I swapped to stage 2 thinking that stage one was no longer appropriate formulation for my baby (marketed as 6-12 months). I bulk ordered after getting about 3/4 days into the tin, thinking all was well. From the 5th day and ongoingly, our bub experienced severe vomiting and diarrhea for almost 3/4 days before we could pinpoint the actual cause as the formula. Poos were highly acid in smell.
Be careful, bubs gut flora is extremely sensitive to this kind of change.
We had to switch to another formula manufacturer that makes for 0-12 months.
When I asked Bellamy’s for a refund/exchange on my unopened box of 3 tins of formula, I received nil response.
We ended up in hospital due to the extent of illness.
I’m sorry but I can’t advocate for stage two.

Terrible after change of ingredients
Have sworn by this formula previously but since the recent change of ingredients it has been horrible, my baby has become extremely fussy, in constant pain and has a severe burn on his bum from the acid poops, none of which we have experienced before. Will be switching formulas immediately. No longer recommend!
It’s perfect love it
My daughter loves this formula. I started with -2 follow on .6 months plus.very easy from breastfeeding to formula.very simple measurement,1scoop in 60ml. Very reasonable qty to start with .very smooth .no bubbles and clumps.you don’t need to shake too much to mix. Worth spending money on it.
Excellent formula - used when switching from breastfeeding to formula, baby loved it instantly
Only 4 start due to the price on this formula, although this is a local brand, as I live in TAS and we still paying around $30, same price as mainland for some reason, although i believe it would be a bit more expensive to get the formula across to the mainland. Other than that, I used Bellamy's when switching from breastfeeding to formula and baby loved it, did not have any tummy issues and she enjoys the taste and she gulps the bottle down, we have already switched to step 3 and will still be using this formula.
HORRIBLE FORMULA CHANGE
They have now changed their look and also the formula which they have added ARA DHA and its more yellow my child was in pain for few days no sleep. The ARA etc upset his tummy as I always went for Bellamy’s because they never added that crap in their formula now that they have I will not be buying or recommending it ever! Oh not to mention the nice $30 price tag on it now!

Organic and thriving baby.
I haven't tried other formulas because it was very important that formula was organic. Having previously worked on a cattle property it makes me shudder the thought of the pesticides, herbisides and drenches used and the thought of being them into my house. No thank-you. Ds is thriving and no issues. Instructions are easy to follow. Transitioned from bm. No issue with stools. Sorry tmi.
Great product, baby liked first time
We have been using this formula for 3 months now, I tried a bunch of brands which tasted terrible (I tried them as to see why she didn't like them) Bellamy's just tastes like milk. It has taken the stress out of going back to work. Being organic is wonderful too.
Little One didn't like it, switched to A2 instead.
Recommended for infants 6 to 12 months. Contains organic cows milk, added iron, vitamins and minerals. One downside is no DHA, but that will change soon I hear. We were attracted to the all natural ingredients but in the end, it just wasn't right for our little one (unsettled and foul nappies). Switched to A2 instead.
The only organic formula I know of
I'm not into organics but my partner is, so this was his choice. We used it as a supplement for when my son wouldn't breast feed and I hadn't been able to pump enough. It's a good enough formula. Our son will drink it when he's hungry, otherwise he won't touch it (probably a good thing, avoids overfeeding). It doesn't smell very appetizing and there are often lumps despite shaking it well. It's no easier or harder to prepare than any other formula. No tummy issues and no constipation.
However it is one of the more expensive formulas.
Good organic formula
A great formula, it agrees with my baby, I used step 1 also. I was told step 2 may cause constipation but it didn't, in fact it was quite the opposite but that could also be because of the food I give him. It is a little more inconvenient to make than other formulas as you need to make it at a higher temperature then cool it down which is annoying when you have a hungry screaming baby. However you can pre make the bottles and store them in the fridge for 24 hours which is good. A bit more expensive and sometimes shelves are empty but usually if you ask the staff they have some at the back.
Not for my bub
Unfortunately Bellamy's stage 2 just didn't agree with my 9 month old. It caused him terrible tummy aches and constipation. But the reason is because being casein domant rather than whey, its a lot harder to digest for some babies.
It mixes easy and tastes great.
Bub enjoyed it despite the issues.
Didn't agree with bubs
The product was recommended from the lactating nurse as it was " Supporting Australia " and organic. After being on it for 3 nights bubs was cranky, windy and had a terrible tummy. We swapped to Novolac Colic and he was a new baby. I have had several friend try Bellamys and it didn't agree with their bubs either.
It's good, my baby like it very much.
It's good, my baby like it very much. it's only option for him.
I always buy it. it's better than other brand for my baby.
I tried other brand, but my son doesn't like. it's organic. so I think it's good for baby. they have many baby food.
Perfect for mixed feeding
I had to change to mixed feeding when bub was 9.5 months in anticipation of returning to full time work. We tried 2 other top formulas first with no luck. I even tried them myself and understood why, gross. Saw a recommendation on a mum's forum and tried it on my son and haven't looked back. He takes it no worries.
First choice if you have to change to bottle or mixed feed for any reason.
My older son likes Karicare but this formula didn't work for my little daughter. So I tried to introduce another brands. She responded definitely no to S26 and NAN and is OK to Bellamy's organic formula. The taste is very good but it is very airy and also it is quite expensive comparing to others.
