Baby saver


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.

Purchased in May 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for $23.00.

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.

Purchased in February 2019 for $22.50.

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


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.

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

We've been using the milk with no problems at all, his poo is normal, his skin has never been so smooth and it mixes ok. All I know is that we can enjoy our baby for the first time and not always have him screaming and all cramped up. Thanks NAN A.R



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.

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!

Re the thickness, I use the Avent vari flow teat and this formula works perfect with it.
