Constipated my baby badly for 6 days
I previously posted a review on the first day we used this formula. I continued to use this formula for 3-4 days and then i had to cease using this formula as it had constipated my baby. It took seven days of exclusive breast feeding, bicycle legs, water and a trip to the family doctor not to mention the 24/7 worrying and concern about my baby being constipated, upset, grizzly and straining and straining to poo unsuccessfully until one entire week later. From reading many product reviews... it may be that baby to baby, formulas react and are processed differently by each child.
After trying 4 different formulas from $17-$30 this was the only one that didn’t constipate my son, or left him unsatisfied.
We now finally have regular bowl movements and a good sleep from 4-5hr between feeds which is now increasing as he’s intake has increased aswell!
Plus $12 saving so much $$$$ this has been a god sent!
Great formula! We compared ingredients on the back with leading brands and its the same stuff but better. It kept my baby full throughout the night and he enjoyed drinking it more comoared to others. We experienced no side effects or reaction from changing to this formula. Its easy to prepare and so much cheaper! Love love love and highly recommend people give this a try
Flared up reflux and caused constipation
We put our baby onto this formula at around 2 weeks old. He was often straining hard to poo but one particular day he was screaming for two hours and was so constipated so we had to move him off this formula.
Our baby also has reflux and since moving off this formula it has dramatically improved.
He did manage to have long stretches of sleep on this formula at night however, that was the one plus side.
Great transition from 1
From birth i used Mamia gold 1 and once i started her on solids around 4 months, i switched to this. She made the transition with no issues, maybe a little more constipation but i can't say it is from this. I just make sure she is having water as well. Bub loves it and it is prepared the same as the others. At 5 months we are having 180ml(3 sccops) and the tin lasts about 1.5wks
Too much protein in the milk
Recently, I have bought Mamia New born formula for my daughter. The formula is Ok until we have consulted with the community nurse where she told us that the formula has got more protein contain in it, compare to the other reputed brand. When I compare the ingredients I have seen that difference. She told us that is a major cause of obesity in children and is not suitable for children. Due to high protein contain the price is cheaper than other brand. Think twice when you buy the formula for kids. consult the right person re the rand of the formula.
made bubs very restless at sleep time
Bubs really didn't like this one. The 6 or 7 feeds of this I gave her all resulted in a lot of gas, wind and sleeplessness nights. Wont risk again.
It was easy enough to prepair and really cost effective but it's not worth being exhausted over. Sorry Aldi, its a no from me
It's cheap and okay
Yes but I didn't like the way the powder felt and it spilt easy which I wasn't fun
Yes, he loved it
No sides effects what so ever.
It's a great brand if you want something cheap and I used to use karicare brands before it so must taste the same
love love love
Hospital and midwives told me nan formula ha is the best but after baby had foul farts, constipation and dark green to black poo’s we switched to aldi mamia and it has fixed babies foul smelling farts they have no odour.. no more consitpation and regular daily poo’s and saves you money!!! 10/10 no complaints
Love this product
I have tried this for my last baby (4).. the price is great,my bubba loves it and no constipation!!!which the other brands did. I definately recommmed this brand over all the others! i was sceptical at first but I’m so glad I gave it a go. hands down my choice.
Cheaper than the others and just as good.
My toddler loves her daily bottle of formula. Baby formula is so well regulated that you know it is going to be of good quality. Perhaps if my bub was reliant on formula I wouldn’t risk buying a cheaper brand, but it has every vitamin and mineral she needs (the reason why I give her a bottle of formula each day).
Loved Mamia stage 1 & 2 so much cheaper than other brands by almost 50%! Not a big fan of stage 3 tastes like there is a lot of sugar in it and my boy got spots on his face but not sure if that was linked. He’s on whole cows milk now anyway
This is the only formula my bub will drink
I went through so many but all the other brands either caused constipation or diarrhoea.
Easy to make
Easy to find!!! Does not sell out like other brands
Aldi is the only retailer for this so uf you don't have aldi near then it would be hard to get.
Great and affordable.
We used nan from 10 weeks old then switched to mammia around 14 weeks due to cost of formula and noticed no changed in her at all. She gulps it done and has had no troubles drinking it. She’s had two days of not pooping but she also had a cold but went back to normal after that. Has also had some dark green poos but I have read that’s also normal (?). Can’t fault this product, happy healthy baby.
Don't let the price fool you!
Fantastic formula that we moved on to for stage 2 to save some money. It's about half the price of the one we were buying before and it's just as great. It does bubble up quite a lot, fortunately for us gas has never been an issue for our daughter so the bubbles didn't make a difference for us. Sometimes you do need hotter water to have no sediments but if you mix it well enough it should be fine. For the price it is definitely comparable to the best and the rest on the market, especially when you have a look at the ingredients, vitamins and minerals used, you'd be surprised!
Do yourself a favour and try it!!
When my baby was first born I was buying the most expensive tins of formula because I thought best for my bun but the price doesn't make it better!! He was constipated and gassy so I tried everything. It wasn't until I brought ALDI formula which I never imagined me doing but i seen major improvements and now he has been on it for a year! Give it ago and save some money while your at it
Mamia was great when I had to slowly change from breast feeding to bottle feeding. My LO loved it and has had no troubles with his tummy or poo when using this formula.
I find it very easy to follow the instructions and I also love the price compared to other products on the market
Can't fault it, except baby's poo smells a little more
We took the risk changing to this formula,as there was nothing wrong with the taste of Karricare,and his poo was pretty regular too.
The only complaints were that he was throwing up heaps more and gassy.and I thought as much as he mixed feed, $20/3 or 4 weeks is expensive and just finding ways on where we can save. As we are using Aldi's nappies and wipes,I have decided to change his formula to Aldi's too,after extensive research on how good the formula is. Obviously it works for most but not some,and I was praying that he'd like it, that it...'ll sit nicely in his tummy and no reflux nor much wind. Trialled the first week with it and we have both decided that it works so good for his tummy. He wasn't throwing up milk as much. Not as gassy too as he wasn't farting a lot,was easy to be burped and for $12.99/can, I've stocked up and certainly doesn't feel like I'm breaking the bank. I have also compared it to karri,and for the price I am paying, he is getting more nutrients and extra dha. I also added Probiotic on his first night bottle, which probably helps him not constipated. As o heard gold formula usually constipated baby. The only downside is his poo stinks a little more than when he was on karri, which is such a small disadvantage.
Quality product with good price.
I like this formula as it went with my baby. I tried few other but none is as effective as Mamia gold products. I am glad that i tried this product. It's only available in Aldi which is only the drawback. We have to go to Aldi store to buy this product.
Gave my Bub Constipation
My Bub loved the Mamia Stage 1 formula, but the switch to Stage 2 gave him constipation. We tried offering extra water between feeds and prunes, pears, paw paw, but constipation only slightly improved whilst on this formula. A little disappointing as we had to research which formulas were best for constipation. We switched to NAN Optipro HA Gold 2 and had no more issues with constipation.
