Worked perfectly

published

My little one had been on this formula from 2 weeks old as she’s was badly constipated she was crying, unsettled and squirmy after every feed and I tried this formula and after one bottle it had worked, the only downside is that you can only get it from a chemist, the price and after a little while my Bub started to get constipated again, but the pros outweighs the cons!

Purchased at Chemist Warehouse for $30.50.

Made constipation worse

published

Tried this as my baby is constipated. Gave it a week, but can't bear to use it any longer. It has worsened my baby's constipation to the point he has blood in his stool and we're both crying.

Purchased in June 2019 for $30.00.

The best money can buy

published

This formula is amazing, fills bubs keeps him regular and tastes great, definitely the best formula I’ve used, and we’ve tried five other brands. Even though it’s a chemist line if you find the right chemist you can get points for each dollar you spend.

Purchased in December 2018 at Blooms chemist.

Excellent product which relieves constipation (expensive though)

published

When moving in from breast milk my baby became quite constipated on formula. I tried a few different formulas with no improvements. He would poo every 4-5 days and it would be very stinky and garbage bin green! The first day in this formula he pooed 3 times and has gone daily since then! It is great you can keep using it as an everyday formula even after the constipation has resolved.
It seems to taste the same as any other formula. As easy to prepare as any other formula. It is quite expensive in comparison to other formulas but I have a rewards program through my chemist so get a $10 discount after every 3 tins purchased.

Good for constipated baby

published

We switched to this formula after had no luck with A2 and Aptamil Gold due to constipation issue. It's very light, easy to prepare, taste OK I guess since my baby is fine with it. I noticed that it looks more watery, based on the nutrition table, they look comparable to A2 or Aptamil

It does what it says

published

We had some trouble my son as he always seemed to be constipated. This formula worked for us and I will stick to it and it definitely helped us with constipation issues. I do not think that the baby noticed the change in taste. He liked it the same way as the other formula we used before.

Amazing life saver

published

Was having so much trouble with my daughter, put her on novalac and she's been perfect ever since, would definitely recommend for those who's babies suffer constipation

Easy to use and can last up to 24hours so I liked that I could prepare bottles in the fridge.
Instant relief from her constipation, so happy to see how fast it worked.

Doesn't work for all babies

published

Easy to prepare. However didn't relieve constipation/soften stools as mentioned I used it for a week and no luck. Went to the gp and she suggested giving Bub more fruits and solid food as she is 10 months and that will naturally help. She didn't want to suggest any medications at this stage. All these formula are just an eye catcher and doesn't help everyone.

My 11 week old was so constipated. I tried putting Coloxyl in his feeds but that didn't do much. He would go red in the face shoot his legs out straight and tense up. His belly was hard and he would cry nearly all day.
Have been using Novalac constipation now for 10 days and I have a new baby. stools are soft and passing daily and above all he's so much happier and content. Am definitely sticking with it!

Awesome product.

published

Great formula for babies that are constipated. I have been using this since my baby was 1 month old. It relieved her constipation and her poo is a much better constancy. I wish i had this with my first baby but no one really likes to give information about baby formula.
Easy to use. The new tins have a lip so you can scrape off the excess.
Its around $30 a tin but if you shop around you can join a chemist with a rewards program and save that way.

What is your experience?

Just switched my 6wk old baby onto this as she had very bad constipation. Yes it defiantly fixed that problem but she doesn't seem as full. She doesn't sleep as well and is restless...just wondering if the sweet dreams will help or clog her up again

It will clog her but you can add some drops from the chemist to her milk I can’t remember the name but that’s what we did. When she gets older use blueberries they are great for constipation

The drops are called coloxyl
