Please consult a healthcare professional to make an informed choice on feeding your baby milks & weaning onto solid foods.

Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered. Improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use an infant milk, you should follow manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill.

Great value

A great value tub of baby milk powder. The tub comes well sealed with a ring pull for easy opening. Once opened you can easily resealable the tub with its resealable lid. Very clear instructions and full nutritional information are printed on the tub exterior. Great value at a great price.



A good taste

A good taste and healthy for infants. It is no doubt one of the best brands by Abbott and trustful for infants. It tastes nice as well because first I tried it and it is no doubt full of nutrition and protein.



Baby loves this and is thriving

My new grandson had been having problems feeding on his previous milk, so my daughter-in-law had been advised to change his food, which she did but he really didn’t like it and was refusing his bottles. However, when I saw this on Amazon I thought we’d got nothing to lose by trying it and I’m so glad we did. He absolutely guzzles his bottles down now and is a happy contented baby. He’d previously suffered with the trapped wind too but since changing to this formula that has improved too.

Great replacement milk

A friend of mine needed some baby milk for her child and this is what I recommended her to get. It is nice powdered milk to get, but obviously, proper breast milk is better. The baby seems to be nice and content with it too, which is great.



Easy to mix

Easy to mix, this was good milk for my little one. Very useful as a back up for breastfeeding mums who need a little help (like me). Also good for mixing first foods with.



No palm oil

My daughter is using mixed feeding with breast and formula (so her partner can join in the feeding) and baby seems to like this. Love that there is no palm oil in it mixes well with filtered water, and easy to make up a few bottles for the fridge. Not that expensive and quite a big tin, all in all, does the job very well. Nice to see that it does not seem to upset his digestive system, at least not so far.
