Good but overpriced :(

This has been a great formula for my baby who has CMPA but it’s so overpriced. Not sure if we can afford this long term. Novalac, please consider reducing your price as not many people can afford this for their sick babies. Show details

Has been such a lifesaver!

My 5 month old was on Pepti Jnr since 4 weeks old, he was having reactions where he would build up alot of mucus and choke which would go on for hours of him choking then stopping then choking, we started him on Novolac Allergy around 2 weeks ago and he hasn't had a reaction once! His now such a happy, smiling and bubbly baby! Novolac has really been a game charger! Show details

Immediate changes in bub

Bub would scream every waking moment so we tried a colic formula which didn’t help. Dr google said it might be lactose intolerance so I purchased this and it made a difference immediately. The screaming stopped and she’s so settled. Worth the money! Show details

Worked for us !

Our doctor recommended this after our baby was really unsettled with gas and we started seeing blood in stools. Formula is good when mixed with warmer water then normal . Our bub didn’t mind the taste, however the farts and poos do smell. Within a week we noticed a big difference as he started sleeping in his bassinet at night without needing to be held constantly or rocked . He still has gas but not like before where it was constantly seeing him uncomfortable after each feed .

I would recommend that the bottles we washed with hot soapy water prior to sterilisation as the formula leaves greasy residue. Show details

Much an amazing formula

After trying 3 different cows milk protein formulas, when my 5 week old was extremely gassy causing stomach pains and then breaking out in a rash around his neck and chest we decided to try this formula and I would not recommend this enough his symptoms disappeared within 48 hours and now I have a really happy baby. Only thing is you have to make sure the water is hot enough to dissolve the formula and makes the bottles harder to clean Show details

Great for my boy who has CMPI

Best formula you can buy on the shelves for an allergy bub. My boy has cows milk protein intolerance and reflux, we tried lots of different ones and this one after 3 days of being on it i could start to see improvements. It is a little gluggy and doesn't mix great. Show details

  Fair Incentive


My baby got eczema after I stop breastfeeding. Nurse gave me this milk to try and after 2 days the skin of my baby got better! I’m happy with this product even it’s quite pricy but worth it. Show details

Game changer!

My 6 week old was diagnosed with CMPI (cows milk protein intolerance). She was unsettled almost 24/7. Mucus in her poo and the smell was horrendous. We couldn’t put her in her bassinet for a nap she was constantly attached to us. We change to this formula on advice from our Pead and we have a new baby! We started to notice a difference 24 hours later. We now get smiles and have a happy baby. Her poo is considered normal again and the smell is completely different. I’d give this formula 5/5 if it mixed a little better and the price was a little cheaper.
I’ve found mixing the formula in boiled really hot water (50ml) has worked well. Show details

Made baby constipated

I don't know how it tastes but my bub didn't seem to mind it and would happily drink it. However, she became VERY constipated from this formula and I had to stop using it immediately. Show details

Seems to make allergy babies and sensitive tummies worse

Already at my wits end with a baby who refuses to sleep, screams in pain from wind, vomits on every formula we have tried and doctors say nothing is wrong. So tired from this constant feeding, pain, vomiting and then hungry again by the time he settled and sleep. Hopeful, I gave my son this formula last night and-success! Or so I thought. This morning, I don’t think I have ever seen my son throw up so much. I’m talking vomit everywhere and absolutely screaming in pain Show details

The worst formula I've tried

Only gave one bottle of this formula and the smell of it was putrid straight away. My baby didn't like it at all. Very smelly gas straight away and then a massive diarrhoea explosion not long after. Which my baby has never done before. Seemed like it didn't mix properly either. Don't waste your money.  Show details
