Blackmores and the great constipation relief

After struggling with severe constipation issues with our daughter on Nan comfort, Supreme and Sensipro then a failure with palatability on Aptimal colic and constipation a friend recommended to try Blackmores Newborn formula before trying other speciality formulas. Blackmore was a game changer. Our daughter now regularly passes without pain and straining, no gas issues and she loves the taste. I can not stress enough what a relief it was not to have to rely on coloxyl and suppositories to get her to pass a poo, the overall consistency and smell is so much healthier and she is a happier thriving baby on Blackmores. The only downer is it can be difficult to find and purchase! Show details

Good Australian formula

This is a good formula for my baby. It is a little bit more pricey but the fact it’s Australian made appeals to me. The only thing is it’s not easily available everywhere. It also last 4 weeks from opening where some others is only 3 weeks Show details

Unfortunate minority

We switched to Blackmore's from the OLI6 which was great but being goat-based, our doctor asked us to find a suitable cow milk alternative. We decided to try Blackmore's infant.
Pros- Baby took to it immediately, good nutrient profile, easy to mix.
Cons- Major gas and constipation. The constipation lasted 2 days and she passed so much gas that her little tummy used to rumble with it. Also a bit more expensive. We switched to Nutura after the second tin.
Verdict- We thought it might be a cow milk allergy but she took to Nutura just fine so I guess our bub was just one of the unfortunate ones. Show details

So happy I found this

I started off using karicare gold + and tried the standed karicare formula - my baby is majority breast fed and had issues with both - skin rash, crying and fussy, trapped wind, sore tummy, vomiting, sore mouth even though she would only have 100-200ml a day. Tried blackmores range and she loved it and didn't have any issues and slept 8 hours through the night and she’s only 10 weeks! Seems to only be sold in 1 place in NZ and at a reasonable price. Would defiantly recommend for babies who have reacted to other formulas. Show details ·  1

So glad I chose this formula

Used this since baby was born, having read lots of reviews on here. Never had any issues with it and baby is now nearly 9 weeks old. No gas issues, no vomiting issues, good digestive movements… will never swap formulas

I buy from Blackmores direct on a subscription, which makes this $27 / $28 per tin - we use about one tin a week. Show details ·  1

Plus plus plus

This has been the best!!!
We tried a lot (and I mean a lot) of formulas for our baby, all resulting in an unhappy, unsettled baby.
We stumbled across blackmores and though we would give it a go, we had nothing to lose.
My partner loved that is was Australian made and owned.
Bub loves it! No reactions, mixes so easy and is very gentle on his tummy. He doesn’t spew as much and he is regular with poo, with nil pain or strain.
He sleeps better and is much more settled.
We are so happy that Bub is now happy.

Thank you !!!! Show details ·  1

Definitly Reccomend!!

Weve been formula feeding from about 10 days old. Started off on a goats milk, but she started to react pretty poorly to it (dark green poos, hiking up legs, super unsettled and crying). So we did heaps of research on different formulas and by far Blackmores had the best reviews. Its worked super well for our daughter, poos immediatly went back a super healthy colour and settled way quicker. Unfortunatly shes got some pretty gnarly reflux so we have to now switch to a reflux specific brand, but would hands down reccomend blackmores to any Mum whos struggling to find a formula that doesnt give their little one tummy issues. Will definitly use Blackmores again for any future children! Show details ·  1

Good formula just not for my baby

My little one is 5 weeks old and I've been giving him this formula since birth. He has reflux issues so spits most of it up. I've used a thickener which helps keep it down but the thickener gives him gas and diarrhoea. I've tried other formulas which he spits up even more so keep coming back to this one. I'm still on the hunt for the right formula, but unfortunately this one isn't it for my little one.  Show details

Outstanding

Excellent formula which caused no issues for my baby. Was easy to buy online. Very happy! We then have continued to use the follow on formula with absolutely no issues.  Show details

The best! Gentle on baby's tummy and easy to prepare

I have used this formula for my baby from 10 weeks old. He absolutely loves it and has never had any tummy aches or problems with constipation. Recommend this to mums whose bubs have sensitive tummys.
Also like how easy it is to prepare. The scoop is big and the powder dissolves quickly.
Only downside is I have to order it online, however Blackmores does provide a discount if you choose to subscribe to it being delivered every so many weeks.  Show details

no gassy bub

So I had to use this milk for my baby and I didn't had any tummy problems with it. She loves it and drinks about 2-3 bottles on a daily basis. One thing though, I wish I could get this everywhere since I'm having problems ordering from CW and online. Show details

Great

Baby started drinking 1 bottle of this a night since 3.5weeks old, and hasn't had an issue with it since. She's now been drinking it for 3 weeks. It's easy for her to process, doesn't have a foul smell and doesn't leave her gassy. She now drinks 3-4 bottles of this formula a day (still has breastmilk in between, so you can definately mix feed with this formula). It is hard to find anywhere in store though, I have had to buy it online either through chemist warehouse or you can purchase it directly off blackmores website. Show details

Perfect

Can’t fault it. With my baby suffering from constipation and being on coloxyl drops since birth, we tried others and some specific for colic and constipation, but we found they were too diluted and she wasn’t satisfied after her bottles. We decided to try this one based on the positive reviews & we couldn’t be happier. So far it’s been just over 3 weeks, she hasn’t needed any coloxyl since, she’s satisfied & poops regularly. Both myself and fiancé are very happy, AS is the baby :) Show details

Hello, my baby is 2 months old and has been breastfed in combination with Blackmores Newborn Formula since around 3 weeks of age. For the past 3 days I have increased her formula intake and she is opening her bowels over 5 times per day. I suspect an upset tummy but this morning her poos are green. Is it normal for formula to make green poo and to increase bowel movements?

You'd have to consult your GP or local nurse for confirmation. I can say that my baby who has been on formula since a few days old has only ever had green poos and ticks all the boxes at the doctors office as far as happy and healthy goes.
