Very happy baby
My baby used to get terrible wind and was constantly unsettled and irritable. I had to give up breastfeeding and feed Bub formula. My baby took to this formula straight away. No wind or other digestive issues. Baby is very settled and content on this formula. Formula is easy to prepare.
Very bad experience.i choose this formula for colic relief but after using only 2 bottles it cause constipation to my baby.now she is more restless due to contipation.never recommend this formula to any one.its particles are not well dissolve as well.she is crying and crying but still no poo at all.
September 13th 2018 Update: Bad
I tried this formula for my baby after recommendation of pharmacist.but after having 2 bottles my baby get uncomfortable.she cried more worse than due to colics.i thought may be it will take time to settle down but my baby suffered constipation very badly.i can’t forget her discomfort face due to constipation.
The change in my baby after using this formula was instant. He is more settled and in less pain. Easy to prepare and whilst it does cost more than standard formulas...the fact that my baby is thriving and not in pain makes it worth it. Seems thicker than other formulas.. but he took to it straight away.
I love it! Did not work for Baby:'[
The formula is super easy to prepare love that it does not stink as other formula's.
Baby seems to enjoy it but she gets hungry more often as if it does not keep her full. (Hungry baby I guess)
She is constipated very badly but guess not all formula work for all babies.
Would Recommend if baby not to sensitive;-)
Helped ease Colic and weight gain
We have a very small bub who had diarroheah on different formula and was diagnosed with Colic.
after 3 days we saw a positive change in our 3 week old baby. It’s been a few weeks now and he is much more settled but is starting to show signs of constipation.
-smooth and dissolves really nicely
-bub was much more settled, less gas and irritability
-great weight gain since starting on it
The only negative thing is the constipation but we are sticking with it as it’s changed our bub for the better
Was disappointed after the hype
Did improve symptoms for a month there, then DD went back to how she was back to how she was before. Except now her reflux was worse. I also didn't like how specific it was to prepare making it hard to pre-prepare for Childcare. I expected better for the price for 800g tin.
We didn't continue using it
Our baby had terrible colic so we tried this formula after speaking with our pharmacist. We thought it was good for the first few days, less uncomfortable wind. But then our baby suffered constant constipation - so he had a stomach ache of a different kind - so we had to change formulas again.
First time formula- thumbs up
After reading reviews and the thumbs up from a friend who is also a new mum, I gave Novalac a go as bubs is a windy baby and wasn’t getting enough milk from me (11 weeks old). Easy to prepare, bubs loves the taste and zero bad side effects. I have tried another brand, which he takes, but it’s much thicker and he prefers Novalac.
Great for the tummy, terrible for the bum!
My partner and I have tried a number of formulas, we started on A2 platinum and baby was a nightmare! Scream crying till she turned bright red and her poos were green water with little bits of undigested milk, it was horrendous! Did some research and tried novalac for colic and it's been wonderful! She's been on it now for about 7 weeks and she sleeps well, barely cries, drinks all her bottle, seems to love the taste! Only problem and it's become a big one is that she is very badly constipated due to the formula being so thick. She poos out lit...tle rocks and she's had a couple of poos now that have been coated in blood. Have tried extra water, water between feeds and coloxyl drops in her milk but nothing helps so have unfortunately had to change her formula now as she's also showing signs of reflux. Am trying novalac for reflux at the moment but am worried that because it is also a thicker formula it won't help at all with her constipation and I can't have her on thin formula as everyone she's tried (A2 platinum, mamia, novalac for constipation) just makes her scream bloody murder. Have had to get a bottle of actilax and suppositories so fingers crossed!
Really good for colic but makes baby constipated.
I was so happy with this formula. Bub's colic disappeared straight away. I then realised he had not poo'ed in days. While I'm told this is normal for a mix fed baby, I feel it is not, especially when they're straining. I decided to swap formulas for this reason. I do think it's excellent for colic though.
Fixed gas but caused constipation
We changed to this formula because baby was extremely gassy and in a lot of pain. After a few days it’s definitely stopped his grassiness but unfortunately caused him constipation. Although this didn’t work for my bub, it definitely seemed like a nicer smelling formula and was thinner than another we were on. I wish it had worked.
Formula is easy to prepare and doesn’t have a bad smell like some do. It’s light for baby and my baby has no digestive problems. Has helped with wind issues we were having. The formula seems to make it really easy for baby to bring their wind up. It is expensive but worth it in my opinion
This product is a God send! My babies behavior is a total flip around! She is sleeping, crying less and overall such a happy baby. It took a few goes with other formulas but this one sets the mark. Just accompany with some infants friend and some natural sleep remedies and I think it will work for all.
Didn’t work for my baby
Didn’t work for my baby at all. Had to stop after 2 days as my baby was screaming in pain. Was constipated and made reflux even worse and did nothing for the colic. Just created other issues which was making it even harder. Every baby is different though so what works for some doesn’t work for others
The formula seems to be a good product and easy to mix, unfortunately this was one of the many we tried whilst trying to ween my daughter from the boob. It was the only one we could get her to drink but unfortunately she would not take to it or any others we have tried so all I can say is that it must taste ok as it’s the only one she would take from the bottle.
Can't fault it
My baby suffered horribly from colic and bad wind pains. We started using Novalac Colic formula and the change was instant. She stopped crying from her wind, was audibly burping and enjoying bottle time. Because of this she began to sleep through the night too. I cannot speak more highly of this formula.
Easy on the tummy
I changed to this formula after baby suffering terrible wind pains and bloating. I found novalac colic immediately reduced the amount of wind my baby was producing. The only side effect is that he can become constipated so I need to offer cooled boiled water between feeds to help this. The formula mixes well but is very messy to clean off bottles - tends to stick and has a ‘claggy’ consistency. Overall very happy with this product.

Hello Marzieh, Yes, at first my daughter got the same, she had constipation for about a week then her bowel went back to normal. I'm pretty sure for that week I gave her a little bit of baby laxative to help her through that week. My daughter is 9months tomorrow and it still using Novalac colic.

My baby is on Novalac colic but still remains to get gas which make him cry so much and unsettled and is now constipated. Can I use novalac constipation formula for every alternate feed?
I would recomend to change the formula.
I have used both novalac colic and my baby still having a lot of gas and got constipated badly. He used to cry so much. I decided to buy Novalac constipation and after using 1 or 2 days he started to get runny poo every 2 hours.
I believe every child is different but this was my experience with both products.
I have change the formula to A2 1 premium. With this formula my baby is really happy.
