Nappies and Formula milk in Italy

Following on from a recent message I wondered if anyone can give me more info on nappies and formula availability in Italy. We are going on holiday for a fortnight to Riva (on Lake Garda) in Italy at the end of August. Our DD will be 16 months old. To save luggage space we are hoping to but nappies and formula whilst we are there.

She currently uses SMA progress formula milk - only 70z for a morning drink but he really looks forward to it and doesn't like cow's milk at all.

The nappies she has our Pampers Easy Ups, size 4 but we could use normal Pampers nappies whilst there. She just likes the Easy Ups - I think she thinks they are like mummy's proper pants!!!

Any advice, or recommendations of where to look for more info, will be greatly appreciated. It means I can fir some clothes in my cases.

I can't answer you question as I don't know. But as a thought on the milk front, SMA progress is sold in individual 6 oz satchets, could you not take 14 of those and add a bit more water for 'luck'? They probably wouldn't take up that much room and you could squish one in here and there. - Just a thought.

I used to buy SMA ready made cartons of progress milk for DS when we were travelling ... bit heavy on the way there but then you have room for souvenirs on the way back

I'll look for the sachets as they sound small enough to squish in my case. We sometimes use the cartoons but 14 of them may be quite heavy. I gather we would probably have to see if the hotel will warm it up for us, or just use bottled water and hope the hot weather will mean she will have it colder than normal.

Pampers are sold as pampers in italy, although they also do some slightly different styles, have to admit that DD just had whtever local brand formula was on the shelf when she was tiny. I'd suggest trying to find a big supermarket for nappies as smaller shops (IME) tend to be hugely experienced or only have a limited choice.
