Keeping my grandchild healthy and satisfied

published

We tried 3 or 4 other formulas before this one and this one is perfect. Bub loves the taste and it keeps him both regular and satisfied unlike the much more expensive formulas. It dissolves easily and is hard to fault. Quite often it will come on special in Woolworths supermarkets for only $10 (normally $15).

its ok.

published

I have tried this formula, and I ended up going back to Karicare gold as it just seemed a better fit for my kids. the consistency was very different to what I was used to with karicare and I just didn't like it. also bub seemed to settle/sleep better on the karicare over this brand so I ended up going back

- in saying that, my friend used this for her son who suffered constipation and this worked really well for her so... every child is very different.

Very good very healthy - has more protein than other baby formulas.

published

My baby's good and healthy.. so yeah it does work. On a serious note, SMA is the best baby formula brand in the australian market with great value. My nurse told me it is just like S26 except cheaper. Usually $15. Unfortunately because it's so good it's always sold out on sales. EVEN when it's not on sale. Good product though.

Was okay

published

I tried Sma after having milk low supply but unfortunately it didn't agree with my 2 month old baby. It was good for keeping his reflux at bay but It did give him terrible tummy pains and eventually constipation. It mixes and tastes great and bonus its very cheap to get.

Used from birth as top up from breast milk and then on its own from 11 weeks. Great price and product. Little one loves it. it is often on special offer in Woolies and In Coles. Will continue using in future. Highly recommend, as a first time mum I had no idea which formula to buy and I'm glad I chose this one.

Best formula

published

This Formula is only $15! Its make by the same company that makes s26 and s26 gold, Its has similar product unside, and both of my boys love it. I only purchased it as I didnt have enough one day to buy a $26 tin of s26, and would buy it over s26 any day!

Cheap but just as good

published

I have 3 children 3 and under they have all been fed both breast milk and formula.The two older boys both had s26 gold and it worked for them.My 3 month old did not like any of the premium formulas and after reading reviews for sma here,we gave it a go.Formula mixes well,smells ok and most importantly my baby likes it.Prior to trying this she was constipated and grumpy.Formula is one of those things,you can only try and see if it works for your baby.The price is great too.

Good formula, seems to agree with my little one

published

Good formula for newborn - as expected from makers of S26.
Swapped to this formula after S26 left my newborn constantly hungry and screaming for more (would drink 180ml when only 4 weeks old).
Was told this formula would fill him up for longer seen the different cassein/whey balance.
Didn't make a difference in how much and how often he would feed, but he enjoyed the taste and it was a cheaper option than standard s26.
Was easy to prepare and didn't froth up.

My baby loves this SMA powdered milk, it is very easy to prepare, my baby is drinking it once to twice a day, three scoops with 180ml warm water, this SMA formula is very easy to dissolve and it doesnt taste as bad as other formulas from the same company.

Great formula

published

We have been using sma formula for our 6 month old boy. We use it to substitute his first feed of the day instead of breast milk. He likes it very much and seems to know the difference between breast milk and the sma formula. We are very happy with the product and recommended it to new parents

Sma made in mexico??

published

Hi by mistake I purchased SMA formula at coles thinking that S26 changed packaging.. in saying this is read up a bit about on this forum and actually sounded like great formulary for the twins as they are a little chucky. Started using and found they kept it down better and seemed more settled.. so decided to send the hubby out to purchase more.. only difference was that the tins he brought home were made in mexico instead of Singapore... i felt a little concerned as to why it would be made in different places.he purchased it at same place as me. Has anyone had any issues with Mexico one or found any difference?

Love it my baby lives it

published

I have been using SMA baby formula for 6 weeks now and I have not noticed any side effects. My little man of 6 weeks seems to love it as it seems to satisfy him where as the breast milk doesn't seem to be enough. Also very easy to prepare especially when half asleep at night

Good forMula great price

published

I have had my youngest 2 on this formula. It seems to be gentle on their tummies and they both did not have any reflux using this formula. Other formulas we tried had constipated them but this seemed to work well for them both. It is easy to prepare and mixes well without lumps.

Great affordable formula

published

Switched to this formula after Aldi's Mamia Formula didn't agree with my son. Had no issues since switching.
The tin has easy to read and follow instructions. It mixed well without being too frothy or clumpy.
They have recently changed the scoop, it now has a longer handle which is good, but the scoop no longer sits level with the handle which can be annoying. Affordable at $15 a tin or regularly goes on sale at Woolworths for $10.

i used this for my son and daughter who were both reflux and colic babies got told to try sma and never looked back so when my granddaughter was having trouble with reflux told my daughter try sma and my granddaughter is now thriving and the only side effect has been constipation but a small issue considering she was vomiting after every feed of her old milk

My daughter drank Aspen S26 gold milk for 4 months from the day she was born. Unable to find the Aspen S26 gold milk powder, however, I had to use the wyeth S26 gold SMA. Is there any difference between the two types of milk? Please explain.
