So easy to keep fresh!
Tried this with my daughter just after she turned one. I absolutely love the packaging. I wish all formula came with this lid. It keeps it fresh and I will never forget to put the lid back on at 3am ever again! It took a while for my daughter to get used to the taste, as it was quite different from her other formula, but after I offered it a few times, she was happy to change over. Highly recommend!
House favourite; gentle on tummies and packed full of quality ingredients
Mim's Gentle Milk Co Organic Toddler Milk was gentle on my toddler's tummy and easily accepted first try. Having one bottle before bedtime assisted him in staying fuller for longer and sleeping through the nights, making it a house favourite as well as his, as shown by his eagerness in reaching for it each night. My 15 month old toddler showed no signs of discomfort nor did he suffer any ezcema flairups which is common with others we have tried.
At 800g, it is smaller than some other toddler formulas on the market and for a higher price point..., but the quality is evident in both the packaging and content. The tin features a satisfying soft close lid and genius holder for the scoop that means you aren't risking contaminating the formula inside each serve. We found that each scoop was easily accessible and dissolved perfectly in water of all temperatures, making it ideal all year round. We absolutely loved that this formula is packed full of 16 essential vitamins and nutrients as well as being certified organic. Being Australian made was a deciding factor in continuing to use this organic goat milk toddler drink.
Well Designed Packaging, Easy to Use
My daughter is almost 15 months old and breastfeeds when awake and before sleeping. She normally drinks a cup of Whole Cows Milk during the day. We were lucky enough to receive this and have tried it for a few weeks now without any reactions.
For the first couple days, she spat it out and wasn’t used to the taste. It didn’t take long for her to like the flavour and start drinking it all.
The packaging is clean and super convenient with everything you need attached to the lid. The scoop is cleverly placed under the lid, where you can scoop a...nd level before pouring into cup of choice. It won’t mix well if you don’t use warm water. We often used a bit of boiled water and cooled down boiled water and it dissolved within the first stir. The dosage is one scoop per 50ml with a recommendation of 200ml per serve. Since my daughter is mixed fed, she drinks 100ml with 2 scoops at a time.
My 19 month old has been on A2 formula since 12 months as cows regular milk upsets his tummy, the formula he was on till then was S26 gold and then after that till last week has been on A2 Milk Company Premium formula. 2 serves per day.
After just over a week of using this formula:
At first I was hesitant in trying the goats milk because other milk makes our son painfully gassy and constipated but the transition to goats A2 wasn’t as bad as I’d thought.
It’s harder to dissolve than other formulas and is much thicker. The powder is more granul...
Good formula, great for baby to digest
This formula was offered me for free to review, I'm very impressed with how quickly it dissolve in water (I always only use room temperature water to make my baby's bottle).
My baby get use to the formula so quickly, which I actually did not expect that at all. Since he started having this as his milk, I can tell from him poo he is definitely digest it better then cows milk formula.
Occasionally when I make the milk I do smell it very milky, but I know is most likely is because is goats milk. It doesn't bother my baby to drink it.
For the...tin design, I do like it. But I would prefer the plastic lid set a bit lower or make the lever on the plastic lid. As I find is a bit awkward to try and level the scoop at the tin. Overall great formula, but for the full price I'm not sure if much parents would be able to afford this formula. Also I was a bit disappointed when I find out that the formula is not from Australia (is made in Australia from imported ingredients) so if I want to spend that much money on formula I would actually prefer if is made in Australia, with Australia goats milk.

Gentle on sensitive tummies - But very expensive
This is a really lovely formula and definitely has a more 'superior' feel to it. The tin was lovely to open and the scoop was attached to the lid, so it was nice not having to go digging around for that. The formula dissolves faster than other brands I've tried and the water can be cooler. My son loves it and for a boy who has been sensitive to cows milk, he had no issues with this goats milk formula. He loved it.
However, I am giving it a 4 star because - For a full priced tin, $59.95 is expensive and not all families would be comfortable paying that.
Great packaging but the product smells bad
I received this formula today for my two year old. I rate it 2/5 stars.
Great packaging but it smells unappetising to the extent that my child wouldn’t drink it. Not sure if it’s the way goat milk is supposed to smell but it was really off putting.
Excellent Packaging and Tasty Toddler Formula
Wow - This is the word I use when explaining the packaging on this formula. I have a almost 3 year old so have used formula for years and this is hands down the best packaged formula I have used / seen.
The lid is a hard plastic and not your standard flimsy frosted cover which you struggle with to close, this cover is very easy to operate one handed while holding a baby or toddler while preparing their bottle. It has one of the best features I have seen, the scoop is secured to the lid so you are fumbling blindly trying to find the scoop in th...e bottom of the tin which is quite frustrating when your sleep deprived and your child is crying cause their require a feed. The labeling is very clear and full on information you require. My toddler is not a fan of formula and does prefer full cream milk but he quite enjoyed this formula with no hesitation. It has taken up a little while since received this formula to finish it as he only has one cup a day. He has not suffered from any side effects from this formula at all, he is continued to be regular and it has not caused any reflux which previous formulas have. Mixing the powder with water was a breeze, there was no clumping or separations while making and drinking the formula. Highly recommend this formula!
Trial and Error -Formula Wins Out in the End
I have two four year old grandchildren who are still using toddler formula 3-4 times a day. Initially they found the taste different to their usual formulas and didn’t want to use it. However I found that it was handy to use a supplement. For instance, at lunchtime I tried serving it to them in a sippy cup with their sandwiches. When they didn’t see it as formula, but rather a different sort of drink, they were fine with it. They liked the taste and saw it as something special when they viewed the attractive container it came in! We all want to...wean them off the formula in bottles as they’re both going to school next year, and it seems so babyish; but they are certainly stubborn! I’m hoping that we will be able to use the goat’s milk more frequently, in a cup, and begin to drop the formula in a bottle. In summary I can say that the formula doesn’t have to necessarily be given in a bottle; its nutritious value is in the content, not the container that’s used for it.
My bub is very happy with this milk
My baby was drinking munchkin grass fed formula and was pretty happy with it but decided to try this mim's gentle milk organic goat milk but wasn't sure if my baby would transition well with it. She immediately didn't complain and has been happy ever since. Instructions are very clear and would highly recommend this milk even if it's goat milk compared to cow's milk
Bub’s love it!
Ive been offered this product to give an honest review. Since birth my son has always been having reflux / vomiting. It was hard finding formula without adding thickener. Mim’s gentle milk is easy to prepare and does not form lump. It was an easy transition for my bub’s from cows milk to goats milk. It taste good too. It has nice smell, no strong odour. It stays well on his tummy without adding thickener. I even put a small amount in his porridge and his loving it. The only small issue for me was pulling the vacuum seal no hole to put one finger to pull through , it was hard pulling it open and i cut my self, but other than that bub’s tummy is happy, so im very happy with Mim’s gentle goats milk. Container is very appealing too.
Great Australian product
My 19month old seemed to enjoy the flavour & was not fazed by the switch from cows milk to this product. I feel like she is fuller for longer & has no side effects.
The packaging is appealing to look at however a little hard to open. Very easy to prepare & instructions are straight forward. Love that the scoop as it’s own stand to place it back into.
Would consider switching from cows milk to this product, all natural australian ingredients.
Excellent drink, suitable for adults and children alike
Just to be transperent with you, I have been offerred to review this product, so it has been provided for free.
The first impression was fantastic: it was all in gift packaging, looked really nice.
Most importantly, my 1 year old, me and my wife all liked it. Diluted in water, it tastes just like a goat milk.
As far as I can see some vitamins have also been added into the mixture.
I am a middle aged male person, so I am not easily excitable by a toddler drink. All about the product, including it's packaging and ingredients used tells about the quality and the taste is really nice.

My daughter, who is 18mths, has had zero issues at all. I have only ever given cows milk to my daughter, so was really surprised and impressed there was no issue.
Product mixes really well.
I love the clip holder for scoop, how sad am i, i actually got excited when i saw it :-). On the scoop, i find design a bit awkward (such a small thing as the product is just fantastic it is almost who cares) as bottles are round and you have to be careful when tipping into the bottle, bit awkward. Other than that i love that there is also a scrape lip to l...
Great Milk, Excellent Packaging!
My one year old has a sensitive stomach and quite often throws up after formula but he did not throw up at all after drinking the goat milk formula. He seemed to like the taste as I had no problem getting him to drink it, which I have with other formula in the past. I love that the tin has a flip lid (rather than having to pull the whole thing off) and that there is a clip to keep the scoop in on the lid (no more sticky fingers pulling the scoop out). The only improvement for me would be a circular scoop rather than oval because the bottles I use have quite a narrow opening, but overall very happy with this formula and will definitely get it again. I especially love that it is organic and has good bacteria in it for my boys gut health.

Very nice suitable alternative to cows milk
My baby does enjoy drinking this. She did not have any reactions to it. Easy to prepare and she also enjoyed it in milkshakes made with strawberries, bananas or blueberries. It worked well with cereal in the morning. Great product Thankyou
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
This milk is amazing dissolves easily in almost cold water!
You can refrigerate and use for 24hrs! Which is unheard of!!
The tin lasts longer due to not wasting any product!
My son is fussy with his milk and took this first go!!!
Also he loves sultanas and we all know how they come out the other end
I Feel as if this milk helps his belly and dosnt make it so bad!!!!
And Thankyou for finally giving me a different shape scoop to look at, and of course somewhere to finally lock the scoop so we don't loose it and have to dig around
Life gets pretty repetitive and it's quite exciting for somthing fresh!
My toddler loves it.
When I received the formula, I noticed that it was wrapped in a fancy way. I'm really impressed by the effort they made. The tin was placed in a cardboard box as the shape of the tin itself and with a ribbon.
Tin itself looks expensive. When I opened the tin, the scoop is hooked on the lid. It's a good idea so you don't have to dig in to the formula to get the scooper unlike the other brands. It looks really hygienic.
The formula itself looks good and smells good. This is the first time my toddler will try goat's milk. My boy is 13 months old...
Great Toddler Milk
I would give this product 5 stars if the transition from the previous formula to this one was easier. However, that is not the fault of this product - just that my son prefers what he is used to.
I started mixing this with his previous formula to let him get used to it and now he has this straight.
It is great for his tummy - no constipation or runny stools. No side effects like vomiting that we have had with other formulas we have tried.
The formula has a good sized scoop and it is very easy to prepare. It doesn't clump together and is a very smooth texture. The tin itself is very cute and I love the flip lid on it!

Toddler must have.
I found this formula super easy and very quick to whip up, my toddler was satisfied and I actually found that it fulfilled my toddlers needs ( tummy) would definitely recommend.
Questions & Answers
So far has worked for my bub but I would love to see a round spoon in it stead of the square one, its harder to put the formula in the bottle without dropping it everywhere. :)
