A winner first time for the fussiest girl
This was our first time trying any sort of formula product with our first born, who is about to turn 16 months. After the introduction of solids in the first year she has been incredibly slow to adjust to as she is super-fussy. We continued to breastfeed just at night before bed however have been looking to wean this off as we are planning to try for a second soon. We wanted to try Bellamy's first as we already use many of their baby food products with good success, bearing in mind how fussy our girl is.
While she has had a few baby-chinos fr...om time to time and seemed to enjoy those, we weren't sure how she would take to cold formula at night, just before bed, instead of breast milk. We first opened the packaging to reveal a helpful scoop and tin leveler, which I wasn't sure how to use at first but soon realised what it was for. Following the directions on the tin to the letter, I mixed up 200ml of water and four scoops, gave it a good shake and put the nozzle back on the bottle. This turned out to be way too much for an introductory serving size for our little one, at first glance. So, serving it to the little one, she immediately was interested in it. She drank about 80ml which was reasonable given the first serving, but still wanted breast milk afterwards. Over the last couple of weeks we have stuck to 100ml and two scoops, which seems to be about the right serving size for her. She now responds with a smile when I enter her bedroom and says "milk" when she sees the bottle. One night recently she finished the 100ml and said "more" which is an encouraging sign. She has not asked for a breastfeed for over a week now so the formula seems to be doing the trick. So with just using 100ml and two scoops just at night, we seem to be going through the formula quite slowly, but will look to increase this in the coming months. For now she seems to love it, smiles at the bottle and is not asking for a breast feed. This is a win for us as we can now start planning for a second now that we are not breastfeeding, and we will continue to use Bellamy's Organic Beta Genica-8. The formula is super-easy to prepare, with the scoop leveler in the tin so you know you're using the exact measurements. There are no gluggy parts (like you get with adult protein shakes) when shaken up and no mucky residue in the bottle after she's finished drinking it. We have not noticed any side effects or any changes to poop etc. So for now, looks like 5 stars for Bellamy's with our little one saying "more"!

Costly Toddler Drink
I found this formula mixed easily. It becomes a bit foamy, but that settles fairly quickly. I did find it to have quite a strong smell, but my toddler always finished his bottles and didn't seem bothered.
What this formula offers nutritionally will give any parent peace of mind. In the two weeks it took to finish the product, I did not notice any side effects, neither obvious benefits however. My toddler eats well and this formula is costly in comparison to others on the market and for this reason I would not purchase again.
The scoop is also ...

After trying two other brands of formula, Bellamy was the third brand I used for my son. He has been fine with the other two, but he doesn’t seem to like the taste with this one as he has reduced drinking his formula. Plus he has been having runny poo since we started having this. The formula looks a bit thicker than the others and seems to make more froth when you shake it to dilute the formula.
should be able to topple A2
my daughter side reaction on bellamy is - hard to go to the wash room for a big job .
