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.
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.
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.
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 would recommend this formula for newborns- it's safe and works well their belly, doesn't cause the
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. I would recommend this formula for newborns.
We love it
Mixes in well with hot and cold water
Used it with my daughter 3 yrs ago and no my second child
Agreed with both my kids bellies :)
It is fabulous value for money (even though I'd pay whatever I had to for my babies) and the scoop size is good for travel containers
We are happy woth it :)
I highly rate it!
My mum bought this formula for me as I was fed it as a child. My daughter is 6 weeks old today, and will take anything I give her so I'm super thankful for that. I've given her s26 gold and the brand new blackmores formula that was nearly 30 dollars. S26 gold I'm sure gave her constipation and gas. The blackmores newborn gave her really bad gas as she didn't stop farting and her poops were very runny. SMA really works with the gas, I notice she's a lot calmer and doest fart so must. I haven't looked at the nutrition side of things but this works for my daughter.
After breastfeeding and ages trying to finding the right formula. I think this is it! I picked it Up by mistake! My dd has a major reflux issue after many doctors opinions they all said she's healthy and gaining weight ie. Happy chucker. I wanted to find a formula that settled her chucks a little AR didn't work! So I was trying lactose free. But picked this up with my mummy brain. This is working down to 1-4 chucks a day :) it does froth once shaken but. If you give it 20-30 sec to settle its perfect! And its cheap!!!
I wasn't happy with it.
I decided to try SMA because my baby was on s26 gold and since these are made by the same company I thought there couldn't be much difference. Most formulas like s26 are made to be close to breast milk with 60% whey and 40% Casien. Where as SMA has a different ration. I think it's 80 % Casien to 20% whey off the top of my head. This is suppose to fill babies up for longer which is good if they can handle it. Apparently Casien is hard to digest so it's good for older bubs (6 months and over)
I personally didn't like this formula because it di...dn't mix well, I looked in the bottom of the bottle and saw little yellow lumps that had not mixed into the water and it is a very frothy formula with lots of bubbles on top once shaken which I think gave my baby wind drinking all of the air bubble (like on the top of a milkshake) It is also made in Mexico which makes me think is the reason why it is so cheap. S26 gold is made in Singapore. I think I will keep searching for the perfect formula. Every formula is different just like every baby is different and I seem to have a grumpy baby!

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.
