Follow on isn't the same as infant formula(maybe she was thinking of hungrier baby ) . You'd be better finding an alternative equivalent to the C and G.
Follow on is a marketing tool but as a vehicle for advertising their brand (ie the infant formulae by association), not because it is the same and therfore suitable for younger babies. It isn't necessary to be used at all as infant ones are fine until a year.
Thanks, I had a feeling that would be the response. I will keep searching for C&G & alternative Ready Made's. I don't own a car so travelling to supermarkets outside my local area is really hard, and really disappointing as when I get there they only have 2 days worth max. and I know I am going to have to repeat the hunt tomorrow...
I am using Aptamil (made by the same company as C&G) which he is taking (not brilliantly but much better than the powdered stuff). But this depends on when I find it, I have enough to get to the end of tomorrow then I'm out again! I am thinking of trying 'Nurture' Ready Made, my local supermarket had 4 boxes of that today (enough for Saturday).
I cant order some as the supply problem is with C&G. I telephoned them a couple of weeks ago and they said it was a factory problem and couldn't give me a date for resolution. Thanks
What is going on with the supply of ready made formula? I have seen loads of threads on this recently and when I tried to buy some myself as a back up (intending to bf) I got the last 2 cartons in the shop!!
