My little boy is nearly 5 weeks old and due to recurrent mastitis and him being probably the hungriest baby in the world (!) we've made the transition from breast to formula (with a bottle of expressed milk in the evening for however long my supply will last).
So far he's been having the ready made Aptamil which he's been getting on with fine but we'll soon be transitioning to the powder (with readymade when out or at night) and wondered what milk everyone's baby is on.
I'm reluctant to go onto Aptamil powder with recent press, also the hv told me they've changed the formulation from 60:40 to 50:50 casino and whey so it's less like breast milk. Also the cost is a consideration!
Has anyone tried the Lidl or Aldi own brands? Not sure what to do about the ready made if we go into those powders.
I'm planning to introduce a bottle a day of the powder to start with for a gentle transition.
