Worked well but expensive
After our baby was constipated we tried this formula and it was the only one that worked, its only 800gm and about $33 so I was always hoping to find an alternative and eventually we found a 900gm NZ brand for $19 that is agreeing with her. Novalac constipation works and for some it might be your only choice. Good product
I use this for my son and I swear by it. It is the only thing that works for him. We have tried countless formulas but this one is amazing. Happy baby, happy Mum!
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!
Made constipation worse
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 A$30.00.
The best money can buy
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.
After taking this baby formula, there is no more constipation for my baby, others baby formula its make my baby have constipation for sometimes and cry, but there is no problem all all for this formula.
Purchased in February 2018 for A$38.00.

BEST FORMULA EVER 2018
Have had constipation with my girl since born, she is 2 and been on osmolax since April this year.
I wanted to get her off the osmolax and decided to try novalac constipation this formula work right away amazing.
Will never look back im so glad i did try it and wish i had used it much earlier.
Excellent product which relieves constipation (expensive though)
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.
This formula is very easy to prepare I just make mine with like warm water not cold. My baby had problems with constipation while using another product but I found this one and started her on it my baby started going regularly after 3 days and has been going everyday since taking this product which is so good. Great product from novalac
A change with the first bottle !
Bub was 3 weeks old when we discovered karicare 1 was making him very vomity, gassy and just very unsettled (could not breast feed) so it was recommended to change him to the novalac reflux. The vomiting stopped but he was still very gassy and unsettle, also seemed to be getting more and more nugget like stools. Doctor suggested he may have a dairy intolerance so we tried a soy formula. He seemed more settled and less gassy but after a week he became very upset and super contipated with a very bloated belly, we tried adding coloxyl infant to hi...s bottles but still no poops after three days. We changed to novalac constipation and from the first bottle he was calm and happy with no vomiting, or gas cramps, he started getting regular stools by bottle 3. Best formula fit for our little man after trying many different brands and types. Highly recommended.
Help a lot with constipation
I'm normally 100% breastfeed but my DD has a problem with constipation since start solid food. So, I try Novalac constipation to help her relieve this problem. I gave this formular oly 1 times a day (before bed at night) which is really helpful. She getting better. She poop every morning. This formular is very easy to prepare and easy to mixed even with cold water. My DD love it. No side effects on my DD. Very recommended
My 4 weeks old has constipation and reflux. She been using novalac constipation formula for 2 weeks now and its been great! But doesnt do much for her reflux which is fine. Her constipation cause more pain! She cries and strains alot during poopy time so I'll be sticking to this formula! Works wonder for her!
Good for constipated baby
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
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.
Doesn't work for all babies
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!
