Never used this formal with my older child but started using for the next and he any has taken to it instantly with no problems or spewing or reflux and I haven't had to change formulas yet
love this formula
nice smelling formula. hasn't given my bub any trouble. available pretty much every where including at my local iga so convenient. and the cheapest on the market. but still better then the most expensive brands.
Baby deserves better
The formula contains fillers and other crap that shouldn’t be hidden inside a babies formula. This product made my baby scream and constipated. Cheap for a reason. The tin doesn’t have a level thing you can use to ensure equal amounts per scoop given and the formula has a yellow colour that concerns me.
Purchased in February 2019 for $13.00.
Same as S 26.
SMA is made buy Wythe. Wythe make s26.
If you read the back of the tins s26 infant and SMA are exactly the same. Same company, same ingredients and same factory.
All my children have been on SMA. No problems. One child got constipated, I was told to change. I did and it made no difference to the constipation. So I went back to SMA after a few months.
Baby takes this formula well
Baby takes this formula well and seems to enjoy the taste of this one! Had no issues at all with any side effects or concerns from this formula and would recommend to anyone. Also cheaper then other products on the market. Had no issues with preparing this product and will continue to use till baby no longer requires.
Best Value! Couldn’t have survived without it!
After having my first baby, finding a formula that worked was a roller coaster ride! After trying the big brands from being a textbook Mum, my daughter suffered from severe constipation from quite a few brands. After researching the market, I came across SMA. From just 3 days of using this formula, the changes were great! We went back to having normal bowel movements. This product gave us back our sleep, and our happy daughter! I would recommend this to everyone. After having baby no 2, we started him from week 3 and it was magical. He loved it. And I never have an issue with the supply in supermarkets, its always accessible.
Love this baby formula
Our first baby was a nightmare to feed, we went thru over a dozen formulas before finding the right one. She had silent refux and got colic.
Thank goodness our second baby is so much better. We used SMA from the beginning - her very first feed was SMA and she has had no issues on it. I love that it is so cheap compared to other baby formulas and it is just as good - all baby formula in Australia is highly regulated so it really makes no difference in terms of price as to quality.
She does have a little wind but we use wind drops and have had no real problems, currently she is 5 weeks old and going strong on SMA, very happy chubby baby.
Sma formula is excellent my daughter loves it and the fact that it stays in my daughter's tummy and she can keep it down is good she usually vomits all her bottles up but this this is good. And at least now I can see it... all the other formulas I barely could see
We used this formula from the get go, as it was the only brand I had heard of from Europe, bub took to it straight away never had any issues and kept him full for so long in turn gave us a full night sleeper in just 6 weeks. So easy to prepare it’s effortless. Would highly recommend this formula also the pricing is amazing which is always a bonus!
Not bad and it is really cheap
My friend bought this SMA milk to our second daughter 1 day after she was born and we have been feeding her since last week. Now she is months and two weeks old and we realized that she didn't get enough weight so we ask her doctor which brand he would recommend and told us to switch into Nan Optipro so we did it right away. anyway this milk is not bad. About Nan Optipro, it is too early say something about it but I will write a review later on whether I like or not.
Couple months later this is what I found it. Our didn't gain the weight we were expecting to gain then her doctor and Child Health Nurse told us to switch into NAN OPTIPRO 1 which we did but she got colic. Lastly we have changed into Novalac the Colic one. We already knew this baby formula milk and its the best of the best.
Great and affordable
SMA was the only formula my 9 month old would take once I returned to work. This formula has been gentle on his stomach and is very affordable. I definitely reccomend this formula when swapping over from breatsfeeding due to it being so kind on little bellys and helping my little one sleep longer throughout the night.
Very bad constipation
My 7months son start using SMA (13$ AUD, 900g Mexican) after he was happy with NAN comfort 1 (17$, 800g French ) for the last 3 months. The reasons for changing the formula type is it cheaper and the very good review of SMA. However, since my little one start drinking SMA (which he liked it’s sweet taste) he has no poo for 3 days. Therefore he start struggling very hard and become upset. We decided to back to NAN and give him a suitable medication to make it easy for him.finally when he excreted the faeces was too much and too hard (similar to adults one) accompanied by bleeding and crying..
I found that SMA CONTAINS 80% Casien protien, this is too high comparing to other formula
This is a good product
We used this formula from birth, mainly because it's what my mum gave me as a baby. My baby loved it, no reflux, easy to prepare and transport. We didn't have any issues with constipation and it seemed to keep her full. We mixed this formula with cereal until we moved her to cold cows milk.
Very easy and quick yo prepare. My 2 kids havent had any problems with this formular and for the price i believe good money for value thats for sure. No side affects very healthy chubby children thats really enjoy there milk. Good money value thats for sure. Def worth buying to save some extra dollars for much needed other items
perfect product and cheap
It is easy to prepare describe as product. We give this milk from 8 weeks. Baby love drink this milk and no any issue like constipation. It is cheap compare to other brand. I can recommend this product to another person. There is no constipation issue for this milk powder.
Didn't work for us
I first used SMA as an addition to breastmilk and it was perfect then at 1 bottle a day. Once formula was increased to 3-4 bottles (out of 6 feeds a day) it gave my 4 month old BAD constipation. His face would go red and he screamed and cried. S26 was not any better. SMA worked well as an addition to breastfeeding where he got more breastmilk than formula but now that he's fully formula fed, I will never buy it again.
Cheap and nasty
This formula is 80% casein! Which means constipation! It has absolutely no extras like prebiotics. It’s not the same as s26 at all! (S26 is another constipating brand)
SMA should only be used for reflux or very hungry babies without a sensitive belly.
Consider the aldi formula over this one if you need a budget formula but don’t go to stage 2! As that one is casein dominant also like sma.
This is the best formula i have had my son on. Every other formula has given him has either, given him stomach aces or constipation and its just been a absolute hell. I am so thank full for being shown this brand and i am not gonna look back. 100% reccomend it.
Didn't work for us.
The formula can doesn't have a rim on the inside for easy measuring like the NAN ones do I also found the texture of the formula before putting into bottle was different to other formulas. My 2 week old did seem to like it but it gave him BAD constipation. Was a bit disappointed as the pricing is great and would of suited our budget better.
Used this product with all 3 of my kids.After initially trying other expensive and popular brands,this product was a life saver! The children were no longer constipated or windy,kept their tummies fuller for longer and has a more pleasant smell compared to others. Easy to prepare as per can instructions and bonus it actually being available in most major shops and not out of stock! Really cheap and most of all the children were happy :)
