Hi
My baby has been using Karicare stage 1 since 1 week old, she’s now almost 3 months, she has a bowel movement every 2-3 days and consistency is loose and green, could it be she’s lactose intolerant or is it normal?

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

Hi Tee, The poos sound within normal range for her age. Babies can have green poos from time to time and one loose bowel motion every 2-3 days is fine. If you would like to talk further please give us a call at the Nutricia Careline ph 1800438500 cheers Sue Careline Nutritionist

What is the difference in karicare gold plus organic and karicare normal .0-6 mnths

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

All formulas provide adequate calories, carbohydrates, fats, and protein for growth and development, but the differences come from the extras added (prebiotics, fish oils, thickeners, organic milk etc.) The main difference is that standard Karicare Infant Formula (0-6 months) is lower in prebiotics and fish oil. And of cause Karicare Gold Plus+ Organic Infant Formula is made with organic milk. I hope that helps, Laura

Hi, I’ve never used Karicare with my oldest one but I am currently using it with my youngest daughter. I am wondering what us the difference between Karicare and NAN comfort

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

Hi Tanecia, our Karicare from birth and the NAN Comfort are similar products. These are both whey dominant (for easy digestion) but only our Karicare contains prebiotics- these help keep the gut healthy and the bowel motions soft. Kind regards, Hilary

Hello, I have been feeding my baby from birth your Karicare Stage 1 formula and she has been relatively content with it. She is just about to hit 12 weeks and for the last week or so seems to be struggling with painful reflux. The health nurse has recommended to get an AR formula in the same brand. Does Karicare produce an AR formula? Would it work to change her to Aptimil AR because it is under the same Nutricia label? Thank you

Karicare

Hi I have given my 3.5 month old her first bottle of this and she projectile vomited yellow for a couple hours after .shes bright red while vomiting and looks extremely uncomfortable until it stops. What could cause this

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

Hi Laura, if this is the first bottle of formula you've given to your baby, then this could be an allergic reaction which can happen in babies. Please contact us at the Careline today (AU 1800 438 500 or NZ 0800 438 500) and one of our dietitians or nutritionists can discuss this further with you and suggest an alternative formula that may be more suitable. Or contact your Doctor for a alternative formula suitable for babies with a cows' milk protein allergy. Warm regards, Caroline - Careline Nutritionist

Laura H.

Hi Caroline , she has tried two other types and had not had this reaction so I dont think it is a milk allergy. It was definitely scary and Im now worried about trying any other formula when we stop nursing. Thanks for your reply.

Karicare formula is pretty gentle on babies tummies if she had the bloating from when she first started formula you could probably say it was from that
Have you introduced some solids in her diet

8 years ago I used Karicare gold with my newborn daughter as my milk never came in and it was fantastic but now I'm having my 2nd child and can't find the Karicare gold ?? Do you still have it ??? Or what can I use that is the same??

Taina
Taina  

Hi ya, I’m pretty sure the normal karicare is just as good as the gold.. although it will be hard to find a gold with al that’s going on with the baby formula at the moment which is ridiculous! Good luck hope u find some otherwise normal karicare might b second best..

hungry
hungry · Stage 1 Infant Formula

KARICARE+ 1 from birth. I've been caring for my 3month old since birth and following the feeding guide. At present Ive become somewhat confused at the prospect that Ive harmed my child by giving her the wrong amount of milk between 2 to 3months. On her new tin the feeding guide is different. Why has this changed after so long?. My sister even said that was the wrong amount.

Hoda
Hoda · Stage 1 Infant Formula

Hi .is kericare halal or suitable for vegetarian?

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

Hi Hoda- Currently none of our products are Halal certified. However, when sourcing raw materials we do source Halal certifiable ingredients as far as possible. However none of the ingredients we buy are actually certified as Halal for us since this involves additional cost for us. Our standard formulas are suited for vegetarians who consume dairy. If diary is also excluded then the Karicare Soy formula is an alternative. We use fish oils from Australian Tuna and lanolin from sheep oil for the vitamin D. Please contact us on 1800 438 500 if you need more help- The Nutricia Careline

Hi there Yes, I also found the Karicare formula extremely bubbly. I have since switched to Aptamil (made by same company) & it foams much less.

Mikhaela
Mikhaela  

Did you child transition fine over to the Optimal from the karicare plus? I think I might do that once this tin is finished

hungry

It sure is foamy and bubbly and sweet az. At the start bubs had no problems. But that changed after she was 2 months. Baby started vomiting so I gave her 200ml for breakfast and dinner. In between fed her 150mls which was good. Then I found out the feeding guide was all wrong.

Hi can karicare be made up in advance? On other formula we made up enough to last 24 hours. Is this advised? Also is this formula well tolerated or are others better.

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

Hello Diane, We follow the Australian Health Departments recommendations that state that formula should not be prepared in advance and each bottle should be made up immediately before a feed. Any unused portion must be discarded once the feed has finished. We usually recommend that parents can measure out pre-boiled water in their bottles and leave these on the bench and add the powder as feeds are needed. For night feeds, you can measure out the appropriate amount of scoops into formula dispensers so you won't have to worry about counting scoop at 2am. Please contact us again if you have any further questions. - Nutricia Careline 1800 842 098

Bonds

Formula can only be made up for an hour before it needs to be disposed of. But it is ok for up to 24 hours in the fridge.

Karicare
Karicare   DM   

Hi Kaj, thank you for contacting us. As per the directions on our tins we recommend that our formula is used as soon as it is prepared. A feed should be consumed within 1 hour and any unused portion should be discarded. We do not recommend storing made up formula. Please contact us again if you have any further questions. - Nutricia Careline.

I have ran out of karicare 3 for my 18 month old but have karicare 1 for my 2 month. Shops are shut and won't be open by time I need it in morning. Will the karicare 1 effect my child even though she's 1 and a half and normally has the stage 3?

Is it safe to use the formula past 4 weeks time after opening? We actually bought large can and we hardly fed our baby twice. It seems perfectly fine and is dry the way it was on the first day. Its been 1 month and a week since we opened it.

Keet
Keet  

There should be an expiry date on the bottom of the tin. Yours should definitely still be fine to use since it's only been a month. My sister was still using her formula,over a month after opening it since she alternates between breast feeding and bottle

If you're ever unsure about anything there is a number on the tin that you can contact

I've heard that goats milk helps a lot especially with kids who have bad reflux. My mum found that the soy ones help a lot as well. There are always natural products for colic, there's colic tablets.

I've been using karicare plus formula for 5 months. Now we've got this new improved formula my child has broken out in an eczema like rash. Has anyone had this problem? I'm just trying to see if the formula has caused this. I have a Drs app this afternoon

I haven't fed my baby this formula long enough to tell you if it's caused any rashes on her

Phoebe

Please be careful, as I took my daughter to the doctors today, they agreed that she has had an allergic reaction to the upgraded formula and advised me to change formulas

Meek

What was your doctors review ? My child has an eczema like rash and I'm thinking it's also from this milk and did you find a suitable milk for your little one ?
