I have 2 DCs and i used SMA for both - both started on gold but DC2 moved onto hungry baby milk. BUT, my friend who has a 7week old, started hers on Sma gold and said it was very thick and rich and after a couple of weeks he was very sicky and it was cottage cheesey (TMI?) and now she is using Cow & Gate
I know every baby is different and i won't stock pile 6 or 7 tubs of SMA just in case but which milk are you starting on?
hi there, i have stocked up on aptimil.baby due a week on sunday! i asked a friend of my mum's who is a midwife and she suggested aptimil was supposed to be easiest to digest or something? anyway other reason being my local tesco and asda stock it AND i can get it from boots down the road from me and put the points on my advantage card (yay)(although thats the same for most others too) having said that baby will probably decide now i have 6 tubs in the cupboard he doesnt like it!!!!
We had the same with the SMA thing too. DS was on the gold and found it a bit rich, plus it didn't seem to satisfy him enough, so we moved on to the white and he really struggled to digest it. We then went on to Cow and Gate 1 (the green one) and although DS digests it much better than the others, he is still never satisfied so has to be fed more often.
Started dd on SMA Gold but it made her very sick after a few weeks and she had a bad rash on her face. We changed her to Hipp Organic and she is fine now. Hipp is slightly thicker then other milks so kinder on their tummies.
