Tesco deffinitely do them. Boots don't do them for some reason (or at least the ones in Lincoln, Scunthorpe and Sheffied don't!) I only ever found them in tesco.

Thanks for your suggestions, i've tried three tesco's, sainsburys, morrisons, boots superdrug and savers. Will try Waitrose I think.

We used to get them in Sainsbury's but they were often out of stock. We used to buy the whole box of them if ever we saw them...probably much to the annoyance of other Farley's users!

Can you contact Farley's and ask for your nearist stockist?

Farley's is the only milk my wee man likes, and it's becoming very scarce in these parts. You cannot get the cartons for love nor money, and the local Tesco had only three cans of yellow and two of purple left for sale when I wandered down the aisle today. Do you tink there's a shortage, or are Farley's doing a redesign?

They are redesigning the packaging and calling it Heinz Nurture. The new packs look rather nice! Hopefully, when they've finished, they'll be plenty of cartons again! I only used the cartons for the first 6 months or so and only if I was going out and about but I found them lifesavers!

They've not thought it out too well then have they? It's a bit of a pain for those who rely on the stuff. Ho hum, I'm sure it'll all sort itself out

Mummy2Freya Mon 23-Jun-08 11:07:17

Hooray I found 3 lonely cartons sitting on a Tesco's shelf, guess they'll do for now. It's becoming a personal campaign and DF is sent to check supermarkets while he is at may be time for a new hobby blush

As I type hubby is hunting local supermarkets and chemists in search of Farleys hungrier baby 2nd milk....I am aware they are changing the name to "Nurture" and redesigning the packaging but wasnt aware that cans would be so scarce...have also heard that the new formula will rise in price from approx £4.60 to around £8...thats quite an increase!! how can they justify that??

Hi there,
Apprently, Heinz have discontinued Farleys milks completely and are releasing a new brand called Nurture. My local Sainsburys had price tickets out for Farleys still, but no products, the new Nurture products were far more expensive - the 900g NURTURE follow on milk was £7.98 whereas the 900g Farleys Follow on milk was £4.89! Heinz must have scrapped their promise that they were 'committed to fair prices' I only use the formula milk to make up puddings & cereals, it's not like he has bottles of the stuff, but that is a HUGE price increase for those whose babies do! angry

Blimey - that's some price increase. I wondered why Farleys was so much cheaper than the other formula milks at my local Tesco.

Jennylee Tue 01-Jul-08 20:38:32

they are raising the price to match aptamil, as I notice that is almost 9 pounds a can

mum2angels Fri 04-Jul-08 16:34:54

hi ive just rung farleys and they say the price increase is because they have improved the formula and it now has the oil that is found in breast milk apparantly but i think the increase is too much but my daughter wont drink anything else so i will have to pay it to my dismay

JOSIEPECK Sat 05-Jul-08 22:11:12

I agree- I think the price increase is a joke. Everything seems to be going up and up in price...yet wages are staying the same!

PotPourri Sat 05-Jul-08 23:26:53

Yes, you can get it it tesco, adn Lidl. I am well shocked the price hike - WHAT?? That will seriously break the bank for some people, and short of changing brand, which is supposed to be bad for the baby is it not? people will be forced to put up with it, adn fid the extra money from somewhere...

lackaDAISYcal Sat 05-Jul-08 23:34:53

shock One of the reasons I bought Farley's in the first place was the fact that it was cheaper than the others.....that and it seemed to me at least to be the nicest tasting.

and i can't believe the line about it having the same oil that is in breastmilk.

Maybe the price hike is to pay for the milking of all the lactating women they will need to get that oil wink

JOSIEPECK Mon 07-Jul-08 00:23:44

I thought it was only the packaging that was changing and not the actual formula itself..."improved" it may be...but if thats the case then its gonna be different anyway and so we may as well change brands...which I dont like doing either...but if theres a cheaper alternative..well it may need to happen...I'm not being a misery guts but the price increase is a disgrace, its almost doubled in price..fair enough if it was just a pound or so but to got from £4.80 approx to £8 odds is massive.

NormaStanleyFletcher Mon 07-Jul-08 00:28:34

and there are reports that say that the oil they are now adding is not all that good

kiskidee Mon 07-Jul-08 02:39:17

i won't be surprised hipp will also raise their price to 'match' the competition. it would be nice to see me proved wrong. if they are to stay organic i am curious how the increase will be sold to the consumer.

tbh, it is not suprising at all. with the cost of animal feed, fuel(for transport and manufacture here), etc going up. this also impacts on the cost of the product reaching its consumers. what is shocking is the steepness of the price rises here. of course companies will capitalise where they can in order to keep their profit margins and with formula, it is a captive market as no one has the choice to not feed her baby. sad

I honestly think this is something that should be brought to the attention of the media. It's an outrage and will cause serious hardship some families.

Mummy2Freya Mon 07-Jul-08 15:00:44

Thanks for all the responses! I now wish I'd stocked up on Farleys while I had the option, dd loved it and I'm now torn as to whether to fork out for Nurture or ashamedly try to switch to something cheaper
