I went with aptimil for my daughter and will go with it again this time, I went with that because I started breast feeding but didn't last too long and the aptimil is apparently the closest to breast milk

I went with sma... tried 2 others that the hospital had when dd was born and she refused them. She took the sma no problem when it was offered to her. I reckon hold of stocking up until your lo arrives.

Good idea hun! We startd Will on Aptamil and it was just all wrong for him, hes perfect on SMA though! My friend had told me not to buy the formula beforehand just in case and I was delighted then that I listened to her! She told me to not buy too many packs of wipes too so I didnt and Im glad foe that now as well as all the Johnsons stuff brings him up in a rash! Mad how it varies from baby to baby cause my other frie.d is using the Johnsons stuff of her fella since he was born and no reaction!

yeah bout a week pet. i found we wasted a lot of formula at the start by making bottles and he wasn't finishing them and just throwing them out. we're a bit wiser now lol. thanks for the tip bout dunnes, must pick up a few bits!!

I was thinking about just getting 1 can of SMA to have as well....I'd love to stock up but I'd be afraid that baba might not take to it so better just to have 1 to keep us going when we get home......trying to stock up on different things while the offers are on :D
