Terrible formula, spent 23 dollars on a can tried making one bottle, the formula just clumps up and it gets really thick, we didn’t have a teat with a larger flow, after reading all the other reviews I decided this was a straight up waste of money

Absolutely terrible steer clear
This formula is terrible it just clumps to the bottom of the bottle no matter how hard and how long you shake it. You do not realise until you’ve finished feeding and then your baby has had 120ml of water with no food. Absolutely terrible product.

Would give zero stars if I could!
I gave my reflux baby 1 bottle. He was writhing in pain for hours after and spitting up clear liquid hours later. 8 hours later he was vomiting up excessive amounts of clear liquid and couldn’t hold down anymore fluids for the next 12 hours!! It made him incredibly sick which resulted in an ED trip and an admission! And no, he did not have a viral bug (confirmed). Horrible formula!
Wonderful formula for my son with reflux
My newborn has been very unsettled and I didn’t know why until he started to spit up his formula I had been feeding him previously. Thin formula was burning his chest and he would bring milk up and have major hiccups. We went through hell. We changed to NAN AR and he has never been happier, putting weight on and not crying after his feed anymore. Great product!

So far so good
Switched my baby back to Nan after trying the Novalac reflux. My Bub was originally on the comfort product and he enjoyed the taste and was always satisfied whereas he certainly wasn’t on the other brand. He has only been on it again for a day but I’ve already noticed a considerable difference. Definitely required the variable flow teats as it is quite thick once made.

Baby is vomiting after every feed.
I fed my baby 60ml of Nan AR I normally burb him after 30min. When he was done with his bottle I stood up to burb him and he vomited all over us. We just paid a fortune for something we thought would work. He vomits after every feed. Thats why the tin does not say money back guaranteed

Not the best taste but my baby is settled and content. She was projectile vomitting from nan supreme 1 bow with AR and mam bottle no issues. Wish i had made changes sooner.

Works for Bubs
Baby enjoyed drinking this particular formula as it was given to him since day 1. No issues with this formula and we've been repurchasing this on a fortnightly basis.
Formula is super easy to make. No issues. No fuss.

Didn't work for my bub
I bought this as I have been using NAN Comfort. My bub has reflux and it didn't work. He started vomit everytime I gave it. It's very thick and also bub didn't like the taste. It's a shame as I thought this one could be great as the Comfort but it wasn't.
Ineffective and waste of time!
This formula made absolutely no difference to my baby’s reflux! He would still spit up/vomit huge amounts of milk. It thickens in the bottle, so we had to try a variety of teats to ensure good flow, it was gluggy and smells vile, going in and coming out! I used this as my bubs love the regular NAN formula, but I will not be using it any longer.
Worked well for a bit
This A.R formula was great for our LO however he did randomly vomit and dry reach as if there was something else in that batch of formula. We are however going to switch to a different formula as he shouldn't be throwing up midway through feeding.
Also a trick we learnt, after shaking to unscrew the bottle to release air bubbles and screw back on bottle before feeding it to baby.
Best of luck mums and dads!
good option for Reflux babies
Our little bub was on the Nan comfort but had reflux, not the worst reflux but significant enough that part of our routine was to keep her upright for at least 30 minutes after feeding. we have switched to a combination of the comfort and this. we are doing 2 parts comfort to 1 part AR and it has made a big difference. As I said she wasn't at the worst end of the spectrum so we didn't have to go to a full AR feed.
Note that because of the thicker formula we had to go up a teat size.
Perfect for vulnerable children.
the innovative way of packaging in the Nestle NAN A.R some how is quite exciting and talking about excitement \, I was really when I saw my child easily digest this formula and on the contrary with other normal formula which led her to suffer from re-fluxing.
The combination of starch and other ingredients made Nestle NAN A.R thick and you have to make sure that use high temperature water to dissolve it properly.
the constant spewing is finally gone
my last daughter had terrible hickups and constantly spewed on nan ha gold. we got her checked out at 8 weeks old and was told to swap to nan comfort. nothing changed she couldnt keep down anything. we swapped her to AR and the instant relief was amazing. hickups gone, weight gain was instant, spewing ALL gone. absolutley grateful there was something out there for my baby. only issues was mixing it was harder i found i had to shake it up longer and i needed to buy the fast flow teats. she adjusted to it though.
April 20th 2017 Up...date: BUBBACHINO IS MUCH HAPPIER NOW My 3rd baby had really bad reflux. We tried everything. She was putting on weight but the formula just wouldn't stay down. We changed from nan pro gold to nan AR and have never looked back. She's keeping her milk down is much more content and happy and sleeping all through the night. Absolute bliss
perfect milk for reflux
1. easy to prepare fresh.
2. Baby drinks all her bottles and no vomiting from re-flux.
3. no side effects - stomach perfectly fine - no wind at all.
Little bit expensive but works well for baby.
Highly recommended - Works well with nuke bottles and Medium flow teets.
