It does the job.
Both my kids had diarrhoea and using this formula 2,3 times stopped it. Apparently it only solves the problem as long as you use the formula and when you go back to normal formula, the diarrhea comes back. In other words doesn't cure the diarrhea and masks the problem as long as you use it which is good to prevent dehydration in your child.
This was perfect!!
When my oldest DD was 9mo (now 22mo), she had a terrible bout of diarrhoea and the lady at the chemist was so kind and helpful when suggesting this product to me and to my surprise her diarrhoea cleared up the next day and after a bit of ointment for her rash, she was back to herself in no time.
The taste was very pleasant (banana flavour) and it worked so fast on my DD.
It was a bit expensive but I kinda expected it. After all it is a specialty formula.
After 3 days of our 13month old twins having mild diarrhoea, I decided to give their tummy's a rest from their night time bottle. I did not know about this product (but was an avid user of Novolac SD) so I trusted the brand. I read the instructions warnings and made sure to only use it for one night, and the 2nd night I gave my kids 50% full cream milk and 50% formula. It has been over a week now and the diarhoea was a) cleared up the very next day with my son, it took another day to work on my daughter and b) their stools have been normal sinc...e using it. I just wish we had have known or been recommended this product when the kids were 5 months old. We lived through 11 days of gastro and it was a nightmare; constant disenfecting the house, changing sheets etc, and back then they were on 4 bottles a day so it was very hard indeed. I would recommend this product as long as you adhere to the label that says it is for temporary use only. Worked quickly. Tasted like sweet baby cereal. Weird colour. VERY expensive. $23.95 for 450gms. Used to pay $23.95 for 800gms of Novolac SD.
I was lucky to have this on hand, my sister works for bayer so I can get Novalac products cheaper. When my son had diarrhoea I was quite concerned of him not getting any nutrients. When babies who are at such a young age really can't be given anything medically I found this product to be a relief, knowing that this was replacing his fluids and having the electrolytes in which people lose when having diarhoea was great, I found that after he had this he didn't have loose stools, To my knowledge there is nothing else out there in the market like this.
hard to find
This product was recommended to me when my 8 month old daughter had diarrhoea. I had to go to about 3 chemists to obtain it and it is very expensive. It smells awful and looks as bad, and I had a very hard time getting my daughter to drink it. It had no effect on her diarrhoea and was not worth the effort.
Easy to prepare.
Looks and smells awful, hard to get (only available at certain chemists).
