Different baby


Super easy to prepare, my boy had bad reflux, he was on NAN and nature before. Most of the milk came back up. Than my doctor recommended this milk.
Hands down best milk for my boys reflux, he burped straight away now and keeps the mall down.
Would highly recommend for any mums out there that are thinking of changing formulas, for babies with reflux, do it!
Cons: effing expensive. But my boy is much happier

Excellent baby formula


After trying numerous formulas with my reflux/colic baby this formula all but made him a happy little guy. He still spews on occasion but it's not often. Cons are obviously the price but you can't put a price on a settled baby. Also sometimes the formula doesn't mix properly and can be lumpy but its certainly helped my little guy

Helped a lot for reflux


This formula helped a lot. vomiting of my bub reduced quite a lot. I will not say that it reduced 100% vomiting or reflux symptoms but definitely helped.

After starting with this formula, 2-3 days bub had little constipation but after that no constipation at all, my bub having poo 2-4 times a day and completely normal. I would highly recommend this formula to other unlucky parents whos bub has reflux

Reflux and constipation formaula saved us


Highly recommend if your baby has constipation. My new born cried and was unsettled for a week used the constipation and no more toilet problems. Had reflux problems changed to that and was perfect. Thank you as I could not breast feed I tried many formulas and this won was the best !

Love it! What would life be without it


Its easy to prepare, my baby seems enjoy it. We havnt noticed any side effects in our baby. Otherwise it helps our baby from reflux. My baby start having this due to his reflux (3months old) and have no problem at all. It save our life as first time parents! He still having it until now (10months) Our GP also recommend us to still having it although our baby is free from reflux. Excellent!

Perfect for reflux


After tried some baby formula for reflux, finally find this baby formula that really work for reflux.
You can really see the result straight away.
The price is a bit expensive compare to other product for reflux and not all stores sell this product.
Tips: if there is discount in chemist warehouse or amcal, start to stock up.

Worked very well


Our first baby had bad reflux this product worked very good, it mixed up easy and baby seemed to like it, I would highly recommend this product. Our second baby was also put on this formula after trying other brands for reflux, Nolavac is the only brand that seems to work.

Amazing results


Our 7week son had been crying in pain and vomiting every feed. The dr said to look at a reflux formula to change too. I saw that novalac had many good reviews and thought it was worth a try. By day 2 our son was a different baby. The vomiting and crying in pain had stopped. This formula worked wonders for us, and thanks to all
The good reviews that meant we didn’t have to try too many to get right one. Happy days

It's amazing!!


This formula is easy to prepare. This formula has been amazing for my son who has severe colic and reflux. Once he started having it after 3/4 uses his reflux stopped. He was no longer vomiting!
There has been no side effects. It's by far the best formula for a colic and reflux baby.

Worked for screams BUT...


I found the formula easy to prepare. But very thick it sometimes block the teats.
I started my bub on this formuka after taking her off s26 gold for reflux. While it made her more settled it made her projectile vomit 1 to 2 times a day.
Also made her constipated.

Worth every cent


After months of my daughter being on prescription medication for reflux that wasn't helping , i purchased Novalac reflux and within 2 bottles she no longer needed to be on medication which was a huge relief !!! She loved the tatse and settled well with it ,yes it is a higher prices formula but its worth every cent ! She also slept so much better and for longer because her belly was full , i have also used the Novalac colic before and that was also just as great ! Would recommend Novalac for sure ! And there is a few variations so there is one to suit most babies .

So glad I found This formula


This formula was a god send for my baby girl. She was able to keep it in her stomach, it's easy to prepare the same as any other kind of formula.
She slept much better and the crying stopped. I would recommend it to anyone.
More expensive than other formula but well worth it, I purchase mine through our local chemist and get reward points and vouchers for shopping in return so the price doesn't bother me in the long run.

Good but not perfect for hs.


We tried this formula due to my baby becoming very constipated on nan comfort and aptimal ar and aptamil ha and s26 at all made her reflux worse or very constipated this didn't work for us it stoped her reflux but made her constipated :( but I have heard it works wonders.

Seems to give my bub an upset stomach


I only use formula once a week when i work, this formula seems to give my baby an upset stomach so I have stopped using it. I highly recommend the colic mix and losec instead, they have made the biggest difference in my babies life, hes happier, feeds well and sleeps better.

Best formula for premmie, reflux baby born at 24 weeks. I tried every brand out there, then tried this one and thank God it saved my sanity. I wish I'd have know about this from the start. At first Bub had constipation on it but that soon resolved by adding 10ml more water. You have to mix fairly warm so that it doesn't clog up the teat too.

Amazing for my baby!


My daughter adores this formula! It's easy to prepare, it minimizes her spit up, and she loves the taste. S26 disagreed with her horribly, and she threw up a lot of pumped breast milk. Since beginning novalac reflux, she has been such a happy baby, and has been sleeping through the night from two months. Her poos are more solid about 50% of the time - I find that adding an extra 20 mls of water solves this.



Works, but also doesn't!


2 month old son suffers bad reflux, novalac reflux helped after just 2 bottles for that. But almost 2 weeks after using it, he only just overcame his constipation after switching to a new formula. 3-4 days it took for little one to poo after starting on novalac and his poo was hard as a rock with small amounts of blood. Never heard such horrific screams from a baby trying to poo before. Excellent for one end, absolutely horrible for the other.

Only formula that helped the reflux


This formula is easy to prepare at relatively the same quantities as other formulas and baby seemed to enjoy the taste. Incidence of reflux related behaviour reduced up to 95%, some constipation but this is common with ALL reflux type formulas as thet are thicker. Tried other reflux formulas and this was by far the best.

Great for baby's with reflux


The instructions are easy to read, it takes 7 scoops to 210 mils water. I would recommend getting larger bottels to use this formula. My son enjoyed the formula overall. I enjoyed the fact it didn't smell really gross compared to other types of reflux formula and didn't overally thicken in the bottle, rather in his tummy. He had no issues whilst on this formula.

Life saver!!!


My son had a really bad reflux. He was on S26 and than I switch to Nan. Both formulas gave him really bad reflux accompanied by painful gas and green pu. It was horrible to watch him he was suffering soo much.
I finally got a hands on Novalac Reflux. I was hesitant to start him on another formula but I was desperate to try to help him so he feels better.
Within couple of days he still spit out but it was far away from the amount he used to. He felt more comfortable after feeding, finally very content and happy baby. Also his sleep improved , he was very calm and settled immediately .
Looking back I wish I start him on Novalac Reflux earlier but as a first time mum you learn as you go.
