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.

Doesn’t live upto the reviews
I was breastfeeding my baby and trying to find a formula to wean him off on to that wouldn’t constipate him as Nan comfort was very constipating unfortunately. Munchkin didn’t constipate my baby but unfortunately my baby didn’t like the taste initially - after a while he got used to the taste but he was always very cranky and hungry and never satisfied after his munchkin formula feeds. I’ve now had to change him to Aptamil gold and he’s a bit happier after his feeds and more satisfied at least. Munchkin has been very disappointing and it proved to me that just because a formula is more expensive or grass fed DOES not make it better than a cheaper alternative.

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.

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!

Gentle on the tummy!
Absolutely love this formula! My son has been mixed fed since week 2. I tried other formulas including SMA, bellamys organic, s26 and unfortunately none of them worked for us. Some he would projectile vomit after every feed, he didn’t take well to the taste & was having major gas. Since we switched to munchkin there has been no projectile vomits, excess gas/wind or constipation. He loves the taste and demolishes every bottle.
It also smells like fresh milk & so gentle on the tummy.

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

Big reduction in wind
Our mixed fed four week old was in a lot of pain for most of the day with wind pains - spending probably half the day arching his back with a red face and it was waking him and us up. At that time we were using Nan Comfort - which he liked to eat but seemed to make him very gassy. Noting that Nan Comfort is well tolerated by most babies I was worried to try a new formula because of the risk it might make him even worse. Nonetheless I found good reviews of Munchkins Grassfed on this website so decided to take the gamble . Since switching thankfu...lly he has had probably an 80%+ reduction in wind pain. This has also reduced my stress levels as it was hard to watch him in pain so often. It seems that babies respond to formulas in different ways and it can be trial and error to find the right one. Edit* In hindsight I am not actually sure if this formula helped baby or his body just changed at this time coincidentally.

Switched to this at 8 months. Bub loves it and finishes her bottle every time!
I switched recently from another premium formula brand to this one as my Bub stopped taking bottles after 7months. She is 8 months now and happy with this. She even sleeps well in the night!

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.

Questions & Answers
Does anyone in Perth need 2 cans of Munchkin stage 2? My woolies ran out so I had to buy a different formula for my baby (which was the closest in ingredients to munchkin) and she ended up loving it and wouldn’t take the munchkin after. So I have 2 unopened cans I got delivery of finally from Chemist Warehouse (waited 2 weeks for it) and want to sell them to Perth only. I just want I paid for them $27 each or if you take both then $50 is fine.
Please contact me by reply to this question.
Do you mind if I ask which one you bought...that had the closest ingredients?
