Looking for a vegan alternative! This works great

published

My daughter loves this formula! We’ve had no issues from the very beginning. Easy transition from breastfeeding.

It’s very sneaky that companies implement milk within our baby formulas knowing that dairy is terrible for our gut health, let alone newborn babies. I’m glad I’ve come across this.

Easy purchase from coles too. Very affordable

Good but lumpy

published

We started using this formula because of a suspected cows protein allergy and some pretty horrible eczema. Since using it he has stopped vomiting and his eczema has largely cleared up. The only problem with the formula is that I can’t seem to make it without getting lumps which inevitably block the test, so I have been straining it every time I make it.

Good, but stinky poohs

published

We found that our child enjoyed this formula, and was a good substitute for dairy (which seemed to effect his skin), but man does it make the poohs stinky! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Great alternative to cows milk

Just started trying the new formula for my 9mth old with dairy intolerance
I found this easy to access at Coles at a good price
It has been easy on her tummy and she seems to like taste
I would certainly recommend to any mums looking for dairy alternatives
Thanks

Life saving

published

Our son was on nornal formula for the first few months of life. He constantly had the runs and a sore stomach. We switched to other brands over the next 3 months and nothing seemed to be working until I assumed he may be lactose intolerant so I wanted to try him on this brand. He came good within 2 weeks and started to pack the weight on. He's an absolute fatty now at 10 months. We really appreciated having this option more so mum because she can sleep better at night now.

Affordable, excellent quality

published

I've been using this formula for 8 months now after realising my dd has a dairy allergy. Easy to prepare, sometimes won't mix properly if its too hot or cold, great tin, easy to use. Really quite affordable which is excellent when its an essential product required for my daughter.

Great Product

published

Great product for my little one at a great price. Living in a small town we don't have many options but this is great change to it as it's available at 2 of my local supermarkets where the one we used before was only available at a chemist and they don't open Sundays. The only down fall is they never go on special.

Great alternative to cow's formula

published

Baby is allergic to cow's milk so was recommended to try a soy formula. This is great as it doesn't trigger any reaction, and tastes much better than hydralised formulas.

It is as easy to prepare as any other formula and is a great alternative to cow's formula if you need it.

Works for us

published

Our little one is allergic to dairy and egg and soy formula is what we've been using for the last 12 months.
we tried a few other brands but this worked well for us and is priced at the lower end compared to the other soy options
would definitely recommend

Hard to mix and led to constipation

published

My daughter had been using goat milk formula due to a dairy intolerance, which was extremely expensive, so while I appreciate the pricing of the Karicare soy, after just a week of use I have found that unfortunately it's very hard to mix through. There are clumps even with vigorous shaking for several minutes. My baby's poos have become like play-dough consistency after changing to Karicare soy, and she appears to be in tummy pain each day with constipation. Previously the poo was very normal for the past 6 months. I won't be using this again.

Its not as good as the s26 gold soy

published

Ive found with ALL soy formula its hard to incorporate together.. Ive been using Karicare Soy for the last week and a half due to a shortage of s26 gold soy formula because of the rebranding. Ive found that Karicare Soy doesnt taste like soy like the s26 gold soy does, karicare tastes abit watery..

Perfect for my fairy-intolerant baby

published

I’ve been using this formula as needed for my baby for about 6 months. He’s mostly breastfed, but we have the formula for those times when I’m out/unavailable for a feed. At first he didn’t like the taste but quickly got used to it. We haven’t noticed any negative side effects, and the scoop and levelling off part of the tin make it easy to prepare. The only thing I would say is that it would be great to have different stages like in other formulas, including one with added DHA.

If they stopped making this, it's big trouble!

published

Coles, Woolies, IGA, etc. Try finding another alternative for Soy Formula. If it isn't for Karicare Soy I have no idea what my baby could consume being allergic to dairy. No constipation, no colic as far as I can tell. My baby has taken this for 2 years now (since off breast milk) and I guess my only concern is the speed of consumption at the moment! I have to buy a new can every 10 days or so! Would be nice if I could bulk buy this (for a cheaper unit price) somewhere.

A great substitute for cow's milk

published

When we found out that our baby is allergic to dairy we decided to switch his formula to Karicare soy based milk. The formula is easy to prepare and easy on my baby's stomach. He has no problem at all with formula, his stool was normal. He is almost 2 years old and still enjoying this milk.

Easy to mix when you're up at 2am lol

published

My daughter has allergies to normal cow formula so Karicare+ soy is the perfect option for her. It is really easy to mix especially in the early hours of the morning (we all know how important that is). My daughter seems to love it and always is asking for more.

Only Soy Formula on Shelf

published

I could not find alternative soy formula for my toddler besides Karicare Soy. My toddler has been taking this since 8 months old. I will be very happy if the manufacturers could look at removing corn syrup solids from the ingredients. Price has been constant at AUD20 a can, thanks.

Cheryl F.

Cheryl F.asked

My 16 month old grandson has been on karicare soy formula since he was 3 months old due to severe cow's milk allergy, I live in a somewhat semi rural area but have access to both Cole's and Woolworths stores, my problem is that for the past 4 weeks all karicare formulas have disappeared from the shelves here, there are little notes saying temporarily unavailable, is there an issue with the product, because I have no choice but to give this child this product, not being able to buy it is a grave concern for me

You can try email or contact coles and Woolworths. Sometimes they can look into product stock and assist you.

We have had our son on soy formula since 6 weeks old, my question is he is now 2 years and 2 months and does not like regular soy milk which is calcium fortified, we feed him solids but are still feeding him soy formula at 2 years and 2 months so how long can you feed him soy formula?

A long as you like. Our son is allergic to dairy so we have no option but to cut it from his diet


Lil

Lilasked

My baby is 3 weeks old and just recently switched to Karicare soy formula. Used to take Aptamil plus.
Since taking Karicare, my baby seems to get hungry more often, like every 1.5 - 2 hours, while when he was taking aptamil, it could last him at least 2.5-3 hours. And his stool becomes more paste-like, compared to before.
Is it normal symptoms for taking soy formula?
