Great affordable formula
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.
Great formula my daughter has no issues on it
The formula is easy to use with easy to read directions. easy to scoop and my daughter loves it, doesn't make her sick or upset her belly. She keeps it down well and she enjoys it she one happy healthy bubba. She has not had a problem since being on this formula.
my granddaughter loves it
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 baby loves it
I have an 11 month old baby girl and she's been on this formula since being born. At first in conjunction with breast milk however due to medical reasons I had to stop breastfeeding at 3 months and she's loved this formula. My daughter was born 8 weeks early so she's still on it even at 11 months. I did a comparison of the vitamins and minerals with other formulas and this one beats them all. Highly recommend!
OLDY, BUT A GOODY!!!
My husband was fed this as a baby and now my second son is on it. Like my husband as a baby my son also had a lot of trouble finding a formula that worked for him. Originally I was put off by the price, now I'm so happy we tired after my MIL telling me about it. We were previously feeding him nan comfort which was ok, no tummy issues however my son didn't seem to enjoy it. He would only ever drink 50-100ml each feed and always seemed hungry. He LOVES this formula, now drinks 120-180mls each bottle. It's reduced his spills, no tummy issues at al...l. I add a baby probiotic once a day to his bottle as the formula lacks DHA and ARA, but this is not an issue at all. No constipation either even though it's a casein dominant formula. Love it, it's easier to prepare, it's a great price, and it's been around for generations - so you know they must be doing something right. I wouldn't hesitate to use this formula for future babies.
Most affordable and most liked formula
This formula is not only one of the most affordable formulas on the market ranging from $9.99 -$15.00 depending on sales. I have tried more expensive formulas and SMA came out leagues ahead of the others in terms of it being enjoyed by my baby, also tolerated by a reflux prone baby after 3 months and is easy to prepare.
I have used this with all 4 of my children and they sleep fantastic. It's thicker than alot on the market. So easy to make and my children have loved it. Never had constipation or spew ups while they have been on it. I can't recommend this formula enough. I have tried others that didn't sit to well with my Bubbas.
I found the one help stop vomiting
So SMA helped my son stop vomiting he was on the aldi baby mamia but constantly vomited and a friend suggested SMA was good and was fuller on the tummy and I mean he use to vomit a lot and sma stopped it in its tracks so bubs is happy
Easy to use but needs a edge to even the formula like others have
Baby liked it not fussy
Make baby constipated
Had to switch to another brand due to making my daughter constipated. Also didn't make her full. She now used the Coles gold which works better.
We tried serval different(far more expensive) formulas for a little one and found by far his one to be the best. I was hesitant to try this at first due to the cheap price, but after talking to the midwife, she said that they all must met a certain standard so thought it was worth a try! He loved the taste and didn't cause any other problems (wind, constipation, diahree and vomiting) like the other ones we tried. Def worth a try if ur not sure!
I had this formula when i was a baby, now feeding it to my son
I started off breast feeding my son but 4 months later I had to return to work and he was waking up every 2hrs for a feed so I changed over to formula to see if maybe he wasn't full enough to sleep through the night, It was amazing the first night giving it to him he slept for 9hrs straight, my son and I both haven't had any problems with using SMA, its easy to prepare, cheaper option and my son loves it.
Baby chose nothing else
Baby couldn't tolerate other formulas. As soon as we switched to sma we had no more problems and finally she kept down a meal! Saved us! How many others are out there like me?! So gentle on little tummies and not harsh like the ones that contain every other little thing.
Easy to prepare
Easy to digest
Have found it to be more readily avakaibe than other brands. I like the formula to water ratio as being hot I know baby is getting more fluids.
Have also found it less likely to clump up as well compared with other brands
SMA is definitely the best option for a happy, healthy baby
SMA is one of the cheapest baby formulas and one of the best. It is easy to prepare and baby had no side effects. When baby turned 6 months we decided to try various other brands as a follow-on formula. Mamia gold 2 gave her diarrhoea, as did A2 Platinum premium follow on, Then we decided to try NAN Gold 2 which gave her diarrhoea and severe nappy rash. As soon as the tin was empty we went back to SMA and the rash cleared up very quickly. No more diarrhoea, 10 hour sleep overnight, no nappy rash and a happy, healthy baby.
Baby loved this formula
I found this formula to be one of the cheapest ones that still settled well with bub.
It was really filling for him (longer sleeps) and easy to make without breaking the budget. I used this formula until he grew out of it. Really happy with the product for bub.
Used many of formulas over the years but this one would have to be the best one. Great value for money always in stock can get it from coles and woolworths easily. Easy to prepare. Baby enjoys it and is always full. Have had no side effects over all very impressed.
Great product for price
Very easy to prepare bottles with a nice size handle on the scoop. I have used SMA for 7 of my children with no problems even one being very fussy still loved it all put on weight and I would and have recommended it to many people. I will be using again once I have bubs in feb17 can't beat the quality and the great price...
Thank you SMA, my child is now settled
Im shocked, as my daughter was born 8weeks prem spent the first 4 weeks of her life in the hospital NICU on breastmilk and pre made up aptimal formula and was going great. Then I got to take my daughter home the hospital said buy aptimal its the best, NO I was back at the emergency department 5 days later with a screaming constipation baby was told just to cut down her feeds and give water didn't work changed to aptimal AR worst miserable baby I had then I went to the chemist were I was given a small sample tin of S26 comfort it worked for abou...t 5 hours but baby was still screaming, finally a chemist by chance said just try sma or keep her on s26. THE BEST THING I EVER DID she now has a routine she's settled she sleep for 3-4 hour blocks she even did 6.5 hours last night, her poos are regular and the cheap price of SMA I can't believe it. Soooo happy would recommend it to any new premmie mums.

I a a new mom and my mother recommended to use SMA as she used it with me when I was a infant, as a new mom,I am Mix feeding my child. formul works great with my child and it's easy to make and even my husband can easily make milk for our child and feed her, my child enjoys it and fills her belly up and there's no side effect, great for traveling also.

Hi Eniram, Thank you for your question. Feeding guides on pack are provided as a guide, so your baby may need more or less than the volume indicated. Consumption patterns of babies can vary significantly and therefore monitoring of their growth and development is important to ensure they are receiving adequate nutrition. Further information on recommended maximum intake consumption for your baby should be assessed and discussed with your baby’s healthcare professional.
