This formula is great.easy to mix,doesn't smell bad, trustworthy brand.my baby was having a bit of trouble settling and once i tried this after changing from S26 gold ,we had no more problems.The worry I have though is I don't think they make it anymore!the price was right at under $15
My 5 month old has been formula fed since 7 weeks old and we have tried NAN Comfort, S26, Bellamys Organic, A2 and then my husband randomly bought Natra Stage 1 which works very well for us. All the other formulas caused some issue such as vomiting, constipation or our boy simply did not like the taste. Natra seems to work well for him, he loves the taste and eats more than usual (which is good as this has been an issue) plus he is very regular with this formula. Only negative so far is the scoop. The handle is WAY too long and it is very difficult to fit into the tin and hard to use. Also, it is not easily available, and we have to go to certain stores to get hold of it. Otherwise, so far so good... I hope stage 2 will be as good too.
Didnt agree with my bubby
I attempted to mix feed with my 3 month old - this was her first formula attempt. I choose this as it was a new product and was half price as a promotion. The formula mixed well, and easy to use. However not suited to my bubbys tummy. It was vomited up almost immediately and caused constipation and belly pain if she did keep it down
Affordable price for an Australian baby milk.
Bought it for my sister's new born baby as a gift from Coles, it has a reasonable price compare to Nestle while still being a good quality Australian milk (sometimes even cheaper when Coles have a sale off for this milk in weekly special). My sister love it and have no trouble feeding her baby. But the stock for this milk seems very low in number (at the time I bought it only 2 has left in the shelf).
Isn't too bad.
We brought this formula as the price was great. (Half the price of our usual one.)
I don't like the scoop that comes with it as I don't find it very practical.
My baby did often have posits after his bottles while using this formula, but I think that could be because he usually has 150ml not 180ml.
But I would use again if I can't get his regular formula.
Fantastic for babies with constipation
Our baby required a whey dominate formula to help her bowels and I came across this formula at Woolworths on special. Soft on her tummy and never had any constipation issues and was a great value for money. Loved the thought it was also Aussie made. It's no longer available in my state though which led us to hunt another whey dominant formula.
Best formula available
So easy to use one scoop per 30MLS of water my son loves it helps keep him regular he gets constipated off any other formula this formula can be hard to find I'm guessing because it is popular it's not always on the shelves I stock up when I find it and it's cheaper than most brands at $19 you are not wasting your money on this formula my son is always happy on this formula
Baby takes to this really well. I am normally a die hard fan of Mamia Gold (Aldi) fan but this formula sits so well with bubs and she suckles it down like a little piglet. I love that its Aussie made.
1) The scoop is ridiculous. What were they thinking? The handle is too long and it doesn't fit easily into the can until you're more than half way through the formula. The shape of the scoop is weird but if you use narrow neck bottles, you'd probably appreciate it more. It's a little scoop too so you're scooping a lot.
2) It's hard t...
Aussie made and no issues!
Stumbled upon this formula before baby #2 arrived. Stocked up and haven't looked back.
Easy to prepare and bubs drinks it with out any hesitation.
Good price at $23 a tin at Coles. Often on special too.
Not stocked at all supermarkets but I keep a large supply in the cupboard so as not to run out.
Chemist Warehouse and larger Coles/Woolworths stock it.
I love buying Australian made, especially when it comes to my children!
Tastes rich and very creamy
My son was exclusively breastfed and ive tried this formula to feed him. he didnt like it but i did. unfortunately I've only used it twice. it tastes creamy and doesn't actually taste like a formula milk.
the scoop that comes with it is too shallow which requires you to do multiple scoops which i think is not very smart and is time consuming.
This formula I give a 10/10
My daughter has been on this formula since about 4 weeks old maybe even less and I have not had a problem with it. She only occasionally vomits and that is just a recent thing which is probably from over filling on it at bottle feeds
She has never had any other side effects eg constipation etc. she absolutely thrives on this formula. She is now 5 months old and the stores aren't selling it anymore for some reason and I've since started her on another formula which she definetly doesn't seem to like as much. Well done devondale on this product such a shame there not in stock in stores now.
Great baby formula
This formula has been great for my baby since she was 3 weeks old. Made in Australia with Australian milk, easy to find at woolworths and the same price as most other formulas around.
Questions & Answers
i don't know where to buy Natra Start 3. My son has been asking for milk and other brands won't do... Please help which milk tastes like Natra Start 3. From Mackay QLD
that is a good question. I must agree with your son that this milk tastes fantastic. I haven't seen it in Coles or Woolworths nor chemist warehouse lately. I think it would be best to call the company and ask them directly. they can provide you with the best answer. I'm sorry I can't answer this. good luck, cheers! :)
