Happy baby

published

We purchased this for our son at 10months and easily transferred from breast milk to this without a fuss. Seemed to mix better than other formulas we tried previously. Would highly recommend

Purchased in January 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for A$22.99.

Good stage 2 formula

published

I mix feed my baby and she’s loves this formula. I haven’t had any problems with constipation or vomiting which I had with other formulas I tried. This formula also mixes better than other ones.
I’ll be sticking with this one as it’s readily available and pretty decently priced for a Gold formula!

Purchased in January 2019 for A$23.00.

Affordable and excellent quality

published

My little boy has been on this formula since he was a few weeks old. He has thrived on it. It’s not too expensive, and it provides for his nutritional needs. We also used the R-feflux formula in combination with the gold and it settled his reflux right down. Highly recommend this product due to its affordability and quality.

Expensive, has some metallic taste, sometimes constipating

published

I bought this due to being recommended by one of the pharmacists. It's easy to mix, even in cold-ish water, and doesn't clump easily.

However it causes some constipation to my son - initially i thought it was due to other factors but repeated usage clogged the bowels more. I have stopped using this and am planning to mix with my other brands as they become available.

The cost can be expensive for the Gold version. Disappointing for such well-regarded product!

Not really a fan

published

I bought this formula on the very rare occasion that my ordinary one was not available. And it was a fail! I had to go and hunt down my trusted one in the end.

This formula smelt very weird, almost like animal feed in a farm. My son would not drink it at all. The infant formula may be ok but this Progress 2 is pretty bad :(

Great carry on formula

published

I started my baby on S26 Gold Newborn (one bottle a day while breastfeeding) and she had no issues, so just after 6 months of age I switched her to S26 Gold Progress and she enjoys it very much. She is now fully formula fed as I’ve stopped breastfeeding, but is thriving in every sense of the word so I’m very happy with this formula. We’ve not experienced any side effects or issues. I know some experience constipation with ‘gold’ formula as they contain more iron however I’ve not found that to be the case with my daughter. S26 Gold progress is simple to prepare, I found it a little finer than the newborn formula but it dissolves easily and my baby loves the taste. I’ll be using it for my next child too.

Expensive but worth it - easy to mix, not constipating, son enjoys it!

published

Been using this even after 12 months - not constipating, full of nutrition, and seemed to be very easy to mix even with lukewarm water.

We tried a few brands prior to this and although the price is more so than others - my son seemed to like this more so than others. We initially tried towards the Toddler range but find them too constipating and hence reverted back to this.

All in all - expensive but worth it! Would recommend for others.

The little one loves it

published

After trying a few brands. We tried this formulae. So far she can tolerate and is not giving her bad colic and reflux problems. She dribbles and spits less after her feed.So we are very happy with the product. It is easy to prepare and dissolve well. but i think it is all trial and error.

Never had any issue

published

My mom used to give me S26 when I was a baby so I decided to try it for my little one. Used from 6 months until my baby turned 2 recently (we switched to fresh milk now, recommended by Midwife). Never had a problem with it. My baby likes it.

Grand Daughter Loves it

published

It's so easy to prepare a bottle for my 8 month grand daughter she has 3 scoops it makes her so happy. When she's finished with her milk she's a bundle of joy. The one thing I do like about it, is that at the back of the tin it shows how much scoops you put in the bottle and how much water you put in.

Very happy Bub extremely happy Mum.

published

Little miss has quite a sensitive tummy and this formula has suited her and stays down. Yay. Finally a formula that has a fresh and yummy smell. Very comforting to know that dd is getting everything she needs nutritionally especially gives price of mind as her medication for epilepsy has side effects that relate to food intake and weight loss. very happy Mum and Bub here. Would definitely recommend.

Didn’t sit well with bubs until 9 months when we tried again

published

This formula like any is easy to prepare, we tried my boy on it at 6 months and it would curdle in his stomach so we waited a little longer he’s 9 months and we have no problems, no side effects per day just that it curdled when he was younger and he would spit up

Next step just as great!

published

Once Bub got old enough we moved to progress level formula without any hassles. Again so easy to prepare. High quality product, wouldn’t use anything else. Bub loves the taste just as much as the gold. No reflux experienced ever with use of this product. Certainly fills them up. I strongly encourage mums to try this it you are considering formula.

Good for growing babies

published

My son finds this formula really easy to digest compared to the other brands. Given that some formulas have given him indigestion, gas or a tummy ache, s26 has now become our go to. The powder itself is quite fine and natural smelling. I only wish it went on sale more often!

Much better

published

Baby disliked S26 Original Progess but liked the Gold version instead. A bit pricey but bub was happy with this brand. Baby was a tad gassy but seemed to like the taste. Formula has to be mixed well but happy to do so as bub responded well to this formula.

Best choice for my baby

published

Having used the S26 newborn baby formula can't trust anything else for my 6month baby. Being it light on stomach n value for money continued using it. The best part is we didn't noticed any side effects on the baby and it was light on stomach too. Can't imagine my life without these baby formula.

Girls seem to like it

published

Our twin daughters moved to s26 newborn to progress last month and although they seem to enjoy it the powder does not dissolve as well as the newborn. There is always some granules left over in the jug. We use a glass jug to prepare and then pour half each in the girls bottles.

Have to be careful formula all dissolves

published

Got to be careful the temperature used to make the formula is warm enough to ensure all the formula dissolves. Have found that if the temperature is not hot enough, even after vigorous shaking of the bottle, there is undissolved formula stuck to the bottle. Baby seems to still drink it fine though gets hungrier faster than when all the formula is mixed in properly.

Well balanced formula.

published

Despite mixed reviews, we have been sticking to the S26 Gold formula. Our boy has been growing well from a preterm 1.9kg baby to now a normal-sized 15-month-old. He seems to like it and It is not constipationg. I would be happy to go with S26 Gold again if we have Baby no. 2!

Good formula, but worth the money?

published

Bought this for my 8 month old to try, and he did not seen too fussed with it. Tried a few more times, but eventually changed to another brand. Made my little boy quite gassy and uncomfortable in the belly, but all babies react different. S26 has a great brand reputation, but I'm not sure it's worth the price tag.
