Hi ladies i'm posting on behalf of my sis, her ds is 5 months old and has cmpi, he is currently on aptamil pepti1. My sis is going on holiday to egypton friday so doc wrote her a prescription today for 5 tubs. she has been to the chemist and they have tried to order it in but have said it is out of stock, she has phoned all the local chemists and same story. Boots are going to see if they can get any pepti 2 but they are not sure if they can get that either.

Any ideas where she can get any? she is considering cancelling her holiday if she doesn't have any milk for him. also she is not keen to switch to neocate or nutramigen so close to going away as she does not know how he will react to the new taste (it took weeks to get hinm to take the pepti).

try boots at her departure airport too

I hear there is a shortage. Has she tried eBay or Internet pharmacies?

thanks ladies fr your replies, she's been to boots they can't get it. boots at the departure airport would be leaving it a bit late if they don't have it. She is waiting for a call back from boots in the morning then will be trying internet pharmacies if they can't get it. the problem really is the friday morning deadline as she is going away and is worried it may not be delivered on time.

Thanks littlemiss we are chester area so probably not local to you.

any recommendations on internet pharmacies that stock it?

you can order baby milk in boots for collection at the airport, not sure pepti is one they do but we did it for 3 tubs of cow & gate at xmas

how many tubs does she need?

piggyboo Tue 02-Apr-13 21:04:11

Theres a few on ebay, if u ask the seller i bet if you pay tonight they would post out tomorrow

Littlemiss, I ordered it off there, it took payment, then when I rang as I had paid for next day delivery, they then told me they didn't have it in stock.

I'm about 20 miles from Chester, I have one tub, plus one I just opened this evening. First time we tried it - he won't take it. We are sticking to the LF. You can have it if you want it. We made 4 bottles of 8oz from one tub.

You're welcome!

littlemissengaged Wed 03-Apr-13 14:41:19

has she got some yet?

TheDetective Wed 03-Apr-13 23:39:00

Have you sorted it?!

I will be home most of the day tomorrow.

We go away too on Friday. From Liverpool Airport! I suspect if your sister is going to Egypt, it isn't from Liverpool!
