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

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
Disgusting- if I could give 0 stars I would
Worst formula ever my son has colic n fm reflux switched to nan comfort works a charm for colic but then he developed silent reflux was told by nurse to switch to nan AR within a day he was constipated couldn't handle it changed back to comfort and he pooed a few hours later it's was almost black and smelt like pfff bins I wouldn't recommend this formula to anybody switching to nan ha gold wish me luck !!
Terrible is not the right word!!
My lg has been on novalac reflux which has made her constipated as it is casein based. Upon professional advice I was told to try whey based and was told to get nan ar. The formula is way too thick and I have been using vari flow teats due to reflux formulas, when she finally was able to get the formula she pulled off as she didn't like it and it made her really gassy. Now I'm having trouble getting her to take to novalac again! If I could have given it no stars I would have.
Too thick, smell. Taste.
Nightmare to dissolve, very thick and lead to disgusting foul smelling poo .Lead to very bad eczema.
Tried calling staff multiple times initially they tried to put blame on us for faulty mixing technique but latter on said problem with the formula .assured proper action will be taken but nothing till now.
Apparently nan do not care for babies or parents
Nightmare to mix , disgusting poo and horrible eczema
Taste like a rotten fish
The old packaging of NAN which was the 900G was excellent, my daughter loves it. But, when they changed it to 800G packaging, the taste suddenly became like a rotten fish, how did I know? Because I actually tried it to find out why my daughter unexpectedly refused. My daughter now hates milk because of NAN! We tried to switch to other brand like S-26 but as soon as my daughter saw that it is milk, she will just decline to take any amount of it.
Taste like a rotten fish
My daughter developed silent reflux. The pedia recommended her to use an AR formula. I decided on the NAN as she was already on NAN Gold. This made a huge difference. She was finishing full bottles and feeding properly. 3 months later she is still on this formula and a very happy baby!
You can purchase at any Pulse pharmacy, Chemist warehouse, and My Chemist. (the latter two are cheapest at $19.95)
i see it as using nan pro gold with the added thickner. not a bad product! couldn't find it except on the other side of town. it is really thick and was hard for the little one to drink but once he was used to it, he seemed pretty settled on it. Just not the formula im looking for, but bubs didn't mind it.
Lil man has had wind from day one and developed reflux around a month old. used this product for a few weeks but gave up because it was hard to find. He would still bring up some of the milk but his wind pain did settle a little. formula is very thick so large size teat would be required.
very hard to find. formula is also very thick!
