Happy baby

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

Amazing

We put our daughter onto this formula after 2 months of trying other brands. She suffered from colic and this was the only formula that helped reduce her symptoms. It was a godsend. She loves it and drinks every bit. She is still using it at 6 months. It's easy to use, mixes well. Its a little oily but not a problem.
Can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you.

Average

Baby drank the formula fine and it was easy to prepare. However, she started developing angry spots on her face that would look like pimples, when I switched brand, or stopped the S26 for a few days the spots cleared, and came back when I reintroduced the S26.
Upon research, i found that the DHA source is from algae, whereas it is recommended that DHA from a fish source is preferable.
Plus side it's easier to find in stores than other brands, and there's usually ready stock available.

A suitable formula for our baby

We gave this to our baby from day one and we had no issues with it. Our baby enjoys drinking it even though the taste is not very pleasant. It's easy to prepare and mixes quite well with water. It contains Omega 3 & 6 which we wanted in her formula.

S26 gold newborn

.Very disappointed. It would make my baby sick. And would not settle or sleep for long. She would wake up screaming for no reason. Feeding was every hour- 2 hours. To the point all doctor thought it was reflux. Since I change to s26 original. She is more settle and less vomiting and feeding less to every 3-4 hours. And sleeping a lot better. I spoke to a lot of mums and they said the same thing. That the s26 gold was making there baby's sick. I got told it was rich in iron and omega 3. I'm not to sure if it was true or not. But I hope this helps other mums out there

Awesome

Using this for my second bub as it worked so well fro my first. Gentle on the stomach. Helped grow my 4 year old into the advance little girl she is and I believe it had alot to to with the balance of nutrients in S26. Wish it was easier to get my hands on though

Disappointed

Made no difference for my daughter unfortunately, made her very constipated.
Such a shame as I had read so many good reviews about it. Would not recommend don’t waste your time this is the worst formula I have ever used. Preparing it is also a nightmare.

Gave my baby bad gas and painful farts.

Bad gas!!! My baby had colic which is why we chose this formula. At first I was very hesitant to give it to my baby because it literally smells like swisties cheese and I was use to bellamys which was a nice smelling one. But my baby liked it and put on weight so that wasnt a problem. It is also clumpy and needs to be shaken quite alot compared to other formulas and its very greasy and hard to clean bottles. But the problem was It gave my baby really bad gas and really foul smelly farts way more than he had before and very painful farts aswell, this was a deal breaker for a colic baby. We have since changed to a goat formula and no bad gas at all.

Healthy and Energetic.

My now 2 year old was on the S26 Gold for over a year before we switch to cow's milk. He has always been so cute, chubby, healthy and energetic. Everywhere we go, even strangers comment.

Purchased in August 2016.

Good stage 2 formula

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!

Expensive, easy to mix, and seemed nutritious enough

This has been recommended by my Paediatrician for my preterm baby (around 7 weeks early). He hated it initially but we think eventually he liked it. The tin is solid, with easy to peel container, and good scoop inside. The powder seemed easy to dissolve - even in fairly cold water that surprised me!

The formulae is not constipating, however my son is very temperamental about it. It is super expensive - if it were not because of the Paediatrician's recommendation we would have chosen a cheaper brand. My baby is 4 months old now and is growing rapidly so I guess this must have helped.

more blockage than breasts with mastitis.

Honestly, going from organic and goats milk, this is the worst formula i have ever encountered. Not only is it insanely thick, but my kid gets two sucks in before she is screaming because, low and behold, the damn thing is blocked AGAIN. Regardless of what temperature, and yes ive gone from one extreme all the way through to the next, and how much i have shaken that damn bottle, it NEVER dissolves properly. My kid is in constant histerics when i try to feed her. I have her on reflux medication, but that doesn't help the vomiting, so i decided to give this a whirl and i have had nothing but regrets ever since. I don't know if its the 'minor formulation changes' or if it has always been this crap, but if i could throw this tin at you right now, i would. The state my baby gets in when she just wants to feed is unacceptable. Wish i kept my receipt but i get why the price was heavily reduced. Worst. Decision. Ever.

S26 gold

He enjoyed drinking while he wants to sleep.I have noticed it has a fast improvement and progress when it comes to intellectual ability and body movements.Im so happy with this product some people say my baby is smart because he can understand an respond easily. but he is not really big at all.it seems he gain an exact weight on his age. this formula is very easy to prepare.


Best newborn formula for my babies

We have used S26 Gold for both of my children since they were born. We have tried other brands, but found this formula suits our babies best. No constipation problem like some other brands even the babies had both breastfed and formula fed, other brands gave my babies lots of wind and constipation. We always stick to this brand.

Baby likes it

First formula we gave our baby while I was still waiting for my supply to come in. Didn't have any issues with it. Baby has gained really well. Not expensive and always available in the shops. Only thing I don't like is the smell but my baby is not bothered.

Great formula for newborns

I’ve used this formula for two babies and it’s worked really well both time. Easy to prepare and measure out, baby seems to love it. Not much else to say except he’s putting on weight really well and thriving with formula and solids. Couldn’t ask for more really. Does the job.


Best baby formula

I m using S26 for my baby when she was 4 months old, still continuing as my daughter doesn't like the taste of cows milk. It's very easy to prepare, dissolve quickly. My daughter never been constipated and didn't notice any side effects with this. We can easily find in any store.


Great

I used this product on both kids

they never had a issue with s26 gold. They where really happy on the product. My second child was on this product up until 12months

Yes really easy to make. I use to make it an put it in the fridge then warm it up easy


Affordable and excellent quality

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.


My son really liked it

S26 gold was our first choice right from our son's birth as this was highly recommended from many of my friends. He got used to the taste though I felt the smell is bit metallic. But later I found out that's common with all the formulas in the market. I recommend the gold ones as they got more iron content. Haven't experienced any side effects so far with this product

My baby is 5.5month old and I need to buy another can of formula. I only feed baby one bottle of formula a day (hubby does a night feed) so a can of formula lasts forever and I usually throw it out after 4 weeks of opening. Should I buy another can of newborn or progress seeing that my baby is almost 6 months?
