Smells and tastes closest to my breastmilk

published

Smells and tastes closest to my breastmilk compared to so many other formulas we have tried. Little one is also very regular and not constipated or straining just to pass wind as seen with other formulas. Dissolves very well, no lumps left behind.

Purchased in October 2019 at Chemist Warehouse.

I have a newborn for 4 months we have been using the newborn formula as it is truly great, it is now out of stock!

published

It was perfect formula but so disappointed that it is out of stock as I trusted this brand so much!! Do you know how hard it is now to find a formula at 4 months old

Purchased at Chemist Warehouse for $28.99.

Great product!

published

My mum brought this for me while I was pregnant and I was unsure if I was gonna use it as a first time mum but I started using Blackmore formula occasionally to feed my son and I’d say his pretty satisfied with it

Keeps baby satisfied for longer overnight

published

Baby (2.5mo) regularly drinks a between 115-135ml of a serving between 10-11pm as a top up feed. Sleeps til nearly 4am after that. The rest of the day she is on breastmilk, and I give her 1 bottle of formula per day as a top up.
Formula dissolves easily in warm water.
Was on sale a few weeks ago, so stocked up.

Purchased in May 2019 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for $19.99.

Creamy and loved by baby

published

Baby enjoys this in comparison to 2 other popular formula brands out there. Finishes the whole serve.
No noticeable side effects, perhaps she doesn't poo as often as when she is on breastmilk. Sleeps well after. Easy to prep, scoop is a good size (2 scoops for 120ml), so it's less troublesome than another formula which requires 4 scoops per 120ml due to a smaller scoop provided.
I would repurchase.

Purchased in May 2019 at Chemist Warehouse Online Store for $19.98.

Loved this product.

published

My son was originally on NAN and after him habing bad reflux we were advised to change formulas, we went to blackmores and were so happy. It was great while we were able to purchase it, it became harder to find and buy by the time my son was moving up to the 2 so we decided to cut it rather then keep looking and not finding it. I did also use to stock up when it was on sale which was quiet alot which was a big plus for me.

Purchased in March 2017 for $16.00.

Little Bub Loves it

published

I was very apprehensive of putting my third baby onto a milk based formula after my first baby have a milk reaction (I put my second Bub straight on to soy!). With my third Bub I started straight into this formula and never looked back. I thought I would be going through the dramas of trying three or four different formulas, but this hasn't been great from the start.
Very important for us that it is made in Australia.
Shame Woolworths has stopped selling it, but can buy at Chemist Warehouse

Perfect

published

My kid started with another baby formula, which didn't suit her at all as she pukes just after having it every time. Then we started with black mores, luckily she liked this taste and loved drinking it. Obviously I read the reviews first as I already took the chance with the previous one which didn't worked well.

The best

published

My little girl was a preemie, we had so much trouble getting weight on her and we tried 6 different formulas.
This one saved us, she is putting weight on and has no nasty side effects. Blackmores really nailed it with this 1. I am forever great full. Unfortunately Woolworths have deleted this line. Chemist warehouse here I come.

Fantastic formula but sadly Woolworths are deleting!

published

We love this formula. Our baby is happy and growing well. After noticing it’s absence on the shelves at multiple Woolworths stores i sent a message to Woolworths who have replied sadly with “unfortunately we can confirm the Blackmores Formula Stage 1 900g has been discontinued from our stores. We always want to provide you with the products you'd like to see on shelves first and foremost so rest assured we will share this with the team for consideration at the following range review. Never say never.”

There should be some process where parents are warned in advance about this. Very upset. We will have to start looking for an alternate.

Nice

published

I have tried few different brands and this is the best one. It dissolve into cold or room temperature water ( others not really). And it taste really good. I can even use it as a normal milk powder for adults. There's so strange flavour. The price is not the most expensive in the market however it can still go cheaper. It doesn't always have promotion but hope there's more discount for Xmas season

My toddler loves the taste!

published

My toddler absolutely love this formula. We have used a few other brands but this one seems to be her favourite as she never leaves a drop! It is very easy to mix up with the measuring spoon including and easy to read instructions and it is loaded with lots of vitamins and minerals for growing babies. It is more expensive than some of the other formulas on the market but I think it is definitely worth paying the extra for. Thanks :)

Horrible

published

This formula sneaks up on you. No newborn child or any child should go through the pain from this formula. My poor baby has been screaming for almost 2 days because this formula makes him so constipated. I’m a first time mum and not knowing how to help my baby and crying with him because he’s in so much pain.
Not impressed at all.

Hard to find sometimes but worth the look!

This formula made our transition from breastfeeding very easy! But we have had times when we couldn't find a tin anywhere so we once had to travel out of state just for formula. It is also priced differently at every supplier but overall very happy with the product and would recommend it!

Not for my little boy

published

I like it made in Australia and the good ingredients. Thought it would be great for my bub like most of reviews but it's just not go well. My little boy become unsettled and reflux a lot more than other formula. I feel bad to see him suffering from vomiting so after feeding this formula half day, I changed back to the previous one. My boy become much better again.

The best formula

published

I tried 3 different formulas which were S26, Novalac and Aptamil before using tjis formula for my son. This was by far the best! He started sleeping longer during the day and night, was more settled and didn't experience any reflux. He also stopped throwing up as much which was great!

Excellent!

published

We love this, been using since it first came out. Easy on little tummies, mixes well no lumps. Obviously tastes good, as we have no problems drinking it. Great for fussy little eaters. Easy to find at Coles or Woolworths. Price is ok, usually on special somewhere, so I buy a couple when it is.

My granddaughter is just over 2 weeks old, she started on Nan formula and was very settled but became extremely constipated Last Sunday my daughter changed her formula to Oli6 goats milk formula, she hasn’t bee anywhere near settled but up until today was having a bowel movement once a day. Today she seemed in a lot of pain when having a bowel movement even though it was quite pasty in texture - my daughter just doesn’t know what to do. My children were both bottlefed and had terrible trouble with constipation.
