Good milk for baby
I have been with this product from long time
I have been with Nestle milk for my baby at the beginning , i dont know if that milk gave Constipation,than i changed it to S26 for 2 babies,i am still using s26,now they are happy healthy baby. Different milk suits for different babies (may be).it suits mine And they are happy,so are we.!
Don't buy this!
So disappointed in this formula. I bought it after my mother in law recommended it. First day I noticed she was abit spewy but not more so than after having a big overfeed of breast milk then by day 7 it really hit the fan, she hadn't pooped in a few days which can be normal but she was screaming in pain, bloated etc, the formula had made her so constipated.
Plus just on a personal note the formula smells foul and has a slimy texture do it. Plus it's a pain because it has a 60ml scoop not a 50ml like most formula.
I ended up just chucking it out and buying something else, waste of money.
Still regurgitating on this formula
I decided to switch to S26 gold AR as my son has reflux. Unfortunately he is still throwing up a lot on this formula after feeds, and it comes up as thick curdled milk. Won’t be using this formula again.
Won't flow out of bottle
I can't say if this formula is good or not. Its too thick and won't flow out of the bottle even when i squeezed the teat. Would not buy again a waste of $25
My son was born with many complications and after numerous brands I found s26 the best, no reflux no stomach pains or colic like I found other brands, easy to find in many chemist and also not too pricey, actually majority if the time depending in where I go it's on special
Too much sugar...
I breast fed then on recommendation from friends transferred to ALDI Formulas which I have never had a problem with. Last week when Aldi was closed I had no choice but to get ‘something’ from the only open supermarket in town. S-26 gold toddler. Well- to me it’s like giving your child a vanilla milkshake from McDonalds. Far too much sugar for my liking- and my son agreed. I ended up giving him a bottle of regular milk rather than this.
Do not reccomend...
Works for us
This was our 4th formula change and I'm so glad we finally found one that worked for our mixed fed bub. We had major tummy/wind issues for his first 2 months of life but after a few days of switching to the s26 delicate he was a different baby. Even started sleeping through the night. 4/5 stars because it's a little pricey and leaves an oily residue in bottles making them hard to get clean.
Used S26 Gold Comfort for my 2 girls and with my son who has reflux I use S26 Gold AR.... which is horrible... son screaming the house down due to the formula not dissolving properly and clogging teat it is soo annoying been trying not to get frastrated but enough is enough... unfortunately have to move to a new formula that dissolves...
Hi I have a newborn that has been on this formula since he was two weeks old hes had no ' side affect' so this formula is good for me but every baby is different! My only suggestion is that you tell people how much the water plus formula makes it up too on your tin!
My baby health is getting good!
Infant formula is a wonder product for some working mums and those who can't or don't want to breastfeed. S26 is great ... ur baby will have no gas problems and u can see the difference in baby weight within maximum 10 days. We used formulas for our daughter. No problems with her feeding and it was affordable.
Good luck, hope all goes well with Bub. Baby by seemed to handle the formula well and was good to know she was getting a full belly when my supply with low. A good price and easy to find in supermarkets. Instructions were also easy to f...
Started my baby on the new version delicate eze as I was told by the midwife this would help with constipation and colic. Made my calm baby hysterical crying in pain after each feed and when pooing made him constipated. Also smells horrible and strange portion to make. Do not buy this.
Clumps clog bottle
Spent all night straining out mixture as clumps don't break down properly. Daughter gets small amounts before formula clogs the test. We use S-26 normally and since they were out of the one we use we bought this as a replacement.
I would not recommend.
Would not recommend
Worst formula, does not breakdown and blocks up teat. I even have fast flow teats. My daughter gets upset and frustrated as can’t drink due to constant blockages. Won’t be buying again!
Daughter projectile spewed after every bottle
My daughter projectile spewed numerous times usually covering herself and me after every bottle. Huge amounts of vomit that was so unusual for her as we are mixed feeding and it does not happen after a breast feed. Have since changed formula and no issues.
Do have to mention she did not get constipated and we did not have any issues with the consistency of the powder at all.
harsh side effect
I am really upset right now because I just introduced my 5montbs old to this formula today Nd witching 2 hrs of taking it there’s swelling around his eyes. I wouldn’t recommend it at all. Waste of money.
Purchased in October 2019 for $27.00.
Formula is Nice but the scoop sizing is bad
As it’s for newborn there normal feed is btw 60 to 90 ml per feed.
N s26 has only two measurements 60 ml and 120ml that means if my child needs 70 ml rest of the formula which I prepare goes waste and the formula get finished quicker .
My baby loves the taste it’s just the waste of formula that happens as S26 does not have middle measurement as most of the other formula has
Changed from nan comfort to this. My 4.5 month old has never been a spewy baby. He has vomited after every bottle of this. He also must not have liked the taste as it was always so difficult to get him to finish a bottle. The formula is very thick and “gluggy” And very difficult to dissolve. Lots of bubbles present after shaking too. I am back to nan since yesterday and he guzzles it. I also find it strange that the s26 says to give 180ml from 3-6 months, whereas the nan comfort increases to 210mls from 4-6months. He is sleeping much better since going back to nan.

My Nephew loves the milk
Bought this for my nephew who has ezcema and is allergic to cow and goat milk and most of the milk formula over the counter, he loves it and drink it two to three times per day without any digestive problems or hives
+ baby seems to like it alot
+ very easy to prepare as it dissolves quickly
+ easy to digest and doesn’t cause any allergic reactions
- seems to contain quite alot of vegetable oil, which makes it difficult to clean the bottle
- not sure if it is good for frequent consumption since vegetable oil contains too much omega 6 fatty acids

Wonderful product, easy to find.
I started using this product after other mums recommended me to and I can honestly say that this is one of the best formula I have come across. My son absolutely loves it and he easily finishes his full bottle. My son has a problem with digesting milk but doesn’t seem to have that bad of a problem with this formula. I was using the A2 milk previously thinking it was the best formula because of the high price but my son would have horrible projectile vomits and wouldn’t digest it properly so after 6 tins I’ve decided to switch to a different bra...nd to see if there are any improvements for my son and surely enough it worked. This product is readily available in chemists, iga, woolies and comes so it’s a massive bonus! Thanks heaps from one happy bubba and one happy mumma!
My son has reflux as soon as I changed from S26 gold to S26 gold a.r
He no longer threw up after feeds, I'm glad S26 has a reflux formula so I could still stay with the same brand.

Hi, my baby is 8 months old (was 7 weeks premmie) and is now on 6-12 months s26 gold formula.
She is drinking 120mls still, however, the back of the formula is says 3 scoops of formula to 180mls of water. Can i still do 120mls of water and 2 scoops like the 0-6 months formula?

Feeding guides on pack are provided as a guide, so your baby may need more or less than the volume indicated. When adjusting the volume, it is important to always measure the correct amount of powder (using the scoop provided) with the correct ratio of water. In this case it is 1 scoop to 60ml of water.
You may also seek help from your healthcare professional to ensure your baby is receiving the adequate amount of nutrition to support their growth and development.
