Baby loves the taste and actually finished bottle !!!
First off, the VERY few reviews against this formula is ridiculous because every baby is different you can’t straight up say this formula isn’t good if it didn’t work for you!!
I have tried aptamil, a2 platinum and Bellamys after 6 months of breastfeeding and she plain and simple did not enjoy drinking those formulas like she does with munchkin. She has a 150ml bottle before bed at 9pm, has another one between 3-4am and then wakes up for the morning 9-10am. I’m extremely happy, my friend recommended it! It’s the best feeling to see your baby actually like their milk. Five star from my baby! Btw it dissolves so easily in water not like those other formulas I mentioned.

My daughter loves drinking this. The reason I chose this one, after extensive research, was the fact it is made from grass fed cows.
It is much easier on her tummy than other brands I have used which cause constipation.
The hard part will be getting her off drinking this!!!
My son became a different baby once we switched to this. He suffers with reflux & this formula works better for him than the reflux formula. Highly recommended & great customer service.
I've been giving this to all of my babies stage 1 2 3 and its fantastic would never change this formula is the best by far i would recommend this.
Wish I could give zero stars
This formula is rubbish, my Baby started this at birth, then at 2 weeks was drinking 150ml every 2 hours, starving hungry. between 10pm and 6am he was having 4 feeds of 150mls. After sticking it out for another week and a half I switched with medical advice to a more reputable trusted and know brand and wow what a difference my Baby now feeds every 3 to 4 hours and is more settled inbetween feeds. I thought munchkin would be amazing as it read great and would have you believe it's healthy and good. I don't know, I thought it was just my Baby but my health nurse told me this is a very common story she is hearing from mum's regarding this formula.

This formula is a lifesaver for sensitive babies (and this FTM)
To say I've had a nightmare time trying to feed my newborn would be an understatement. After a long and difficult pregnancy that left me bed ridden for nine months, breastfeeding just wouldn't work for me or my bub, which drove me nearly to a panic. What worsened it was the terrible decision I made to start him on Nan Gold Formula, which left him irritated, unsettled, with very runny - bright green stools - and lots of reflux and general discomfort. He hardly slept because he felt so terrible on it, and I was sleep deprived and at my wits' end. Luckily I found out about Munchkin Grassfed formula online, and in just 1 day I have a completely different - completely healthy - baby.
Finally! we found a formula that bubs loves
We have tried soooo many different formulas for our 7 month old since i recently had to give up breast feeding. I wanted to find a brand and a product that was ethical and local. Being from NZ (close enough) :) and using grass fed cows without the added nasties like PALM OIL!. what a great product. Bubs has not had any reflux on it and has slept more over night since taking it. he loves the taste. thank you! thank you! thank you!
This has been a game changer!
I have an 8 week old little bub, formula fed from 1 week old. We have tried endless formulas - Bellamys, Aptamil, Karicare, NaN comfort, all caused him to have chronic constipation and abdominal pain to the point of having rectal bleeding. We started a lactose free one from S26 which was great for his tummy but gave him really bad reflux, then stumbled across Munchkins Grass fed. What a game changer - within 2 days we had a happier baby, no arching his back, no apparent abdominal pain and his poos are totally normal. So so grateful for this pro...duct! Would recommend to anyone who’s baby has a sensitive tummy. And it’s the only formula I tried which mixes so easily - no lumps / bubbles / froth. Bub started drinking more and sleeping more too which was an added bonus

Both my kids loved munchkin
I had to abruptly wean my daughter due to getting shingles, she loved munchkin formula so much now I cant get her off it! Its simple to prepare and she doesnt suffer any unwanted side effects.
Quality ingredients, uncomplicated baby formula.
Munchkin formula is packed with all the ingredients needed for our baby’s development (we have used stage 1 for our son since birth and now moving into stage 2). In our search for the right formula for our baby we found that munchkin is easy to prepare, great quality and straight forward, Simple not gimmicky, uncomplicated unlike other brands that unnecessarily have multiple types of formula and market ‘gold’, ‘platinum’ products etc.
This was the first formula I tried with my twins and they loved it! It was so gentle on their tummy and mixed well leaving no chunks at all! I would highly reccomend
Revised Product Review
I would like to Express my complete gratitude for the quick response and resolution received by the manager at Munchkin.
Our little one suffered horrible Colic and a lot of stomach problems that left him screaming every night for hours on end. We tried numerous formula brands that gave our son little to no relief. Once we tried Munchkin we actual noticed a difference in our sons unsettled periods.
The formula is easy to make and the storage compartment for the scoop spoon is very creative. This idea prevents you from digging in the formula for...
So Much Better
After my baby was having severe colic from both breast milk and s26 gold (which the hospital gave her) I tried this formula after reading the good reviews the difference was immediate her poop returned to a mustard yellow colour having been nearly black from the s26 gold, her gas now passes easily and she now drinks the full feed.
As other reviewers have said, this has a much nicer smell then the other formula I tried and no greasy film left in her bottles.
I love the lid and having the levelling lip further in the can is so much better, I only wish there was a 20ml scoop on one end so I can make a 120ml bottle as this is what she is currently drinking and I am having to make 150ml and she is wasting a bit.

The worst formula for our poor baby
A real let down and a shame that mothers who already are having difficulties with feeding have to go through more dramas. I don't really like anything about it. I was really dissapointed with this formula. My baby had mild reflux and just after using this formula he started screaming after a few sips and poor hungry baby didn't know what's happening as he couldn't eat. Its the most expensive formla and isn't worth the price. This has actualy made his reflux dramaticly worse. It has suffed his routine and he is now waking during the night.
Perfect for my baby!
I switched to this product after reading great reviews about it. My baby was taking A2 Platinum since newborn up to 6 weeks, she was occasionally getting constipation and I didn't want to admit that it wasn't great for her because I only wanted the best for my baby. I researched for another good brand and I'm so glad I found this product as she has been taking this so well. My baby is now almost 6 months and not a single issue with this formula, it smells real creamy too. It's healthier for my baby and I'm loving the modern tin with the scoop d...etachable from the lid. The only downside I would say is that the scoop leveler is in an awkward position on half the tins. I hope they can fix this and have a consistent same spot leveler on every single can. Other than that, I'm very happy overall with this milk!

Excellent baby formula
The munchkin Stage 2 baby formula is very good! My child had reflux and we tried many different types of baby formulas but nothing changed. We saw this particular formula in an adertisement and decided to try it out. It worked very well and my child's reflux problems were resolved. I now use this formula regularly, and the results have been nothing but good. And we intend to continue using this particular brand into stage 3.
Wanted this to work but unfortunately didnt work for us
This formula made my 2 month old unsettled, upset his tummy and He became very gassy. He would usually sleep from 8pm to 6am however we had 2 nights of a screaming baby. Im tired.
So far, fantastic and fresh!
So far so good, my 8 week old son has had two 150ml bottles with no spit up and followed it with finally a restful nap! Powder easily blends with the water, no lumps or odd oily residue which Ive experienced with other formulas. Its not the cheapest formula out there but my babies only on formula for 12 months so I can justify the extra $$ for the top stuff.
I tried the Munchkin formula when it was on special in Coles. I should say I was really impressed with it. My son had it without any issues. It didnt constipate him.
Purchased in August 2019 for A$23.00.
My baby has reflux and is on medication for it, we have tried multiple multiple different formulas to see if they would make a difference. Everything from organic, soy, expensive, cheap, different brands and nothing worked. Eventually found this one, read lots of reviews and finally tried it and Im so glad we did. He barely vomits anymore (every baby is different) loves the taste and always wants more! We love that this formula is made up from 100% grass fed cows in NZ and has a prebiotic and this formula actually smells like proper milk powder, not the gross smell from normal formula. It mixes easy, no lumps, easy to follow tin and instructions. So happy that we found this and would 100% recommend!
Questions & Answers
Looking to try grass fed formula as our 3 week old is having trouble with other formulas even lactose free.
Interested to know what is the grass fertilised with that cows are eating?
Just because it’s grass fed doesn’t mean it’s automatically healthy.
If it’s a conventional synthetic fertiliser program then I wouldn’t use it.
Healthy grass needs balanced nutrition to produce nutritious milk
Are herbicides/pesticides used?
Hope to hear your response
Is this formula good for bubs with reflux?
GrassFed Milk TeamMunchkin
Based on what others have said on this review site and our FB page it seems our formula is good for little ones with reflux. However I always recommend talking to a health care professional first given the sensitive little tummies. Thanks
Hi I have just given my son his first bottle of munchkin stage 1
Is slow flow bottles better with this formula?
GrassFed Milk TeamMunchkin
Hi. It really depends on a few things including your sons feeding technique. Some babies “suck” very fast and some slow. You might have to try a few different bottles / teats to find the optimal one for your son unfortunately. Hope this helps Thks
