    So I am planning on breast feeding for a week or so then changing to formula feeds. So baby gets some of my immunity ect but I don't want to do it for 6 months. That's my decision. It's made so please don't try and sway me lol! My question is what formulas have people used in te past? I'm well confused by the different kinds!

    This is my first and I plan to bf however iv heard that each baby will find a diff brand suits them best just like nappies so its best to try diff ones and find what suits your baby best. X

    I am not bf at all, I have bought sma gold infant milk & will see how he reacts to it. I've seen an organic one that loos good so might switch to that depending on how I get on - its pricey though. I've bought the pre made bottles for the first week to allow myself enough time to get settled & get in the routine of making bottles x

    Thanks ladies. I'm defo gonna try bf but I don't think it's for me already!! I wanted to use hipp organic but I've heat there stopping making it which is a bummer! Also they aren't as ready available as other brands. Also I've been reading and cow and gate and aptamil are made but the same company and I've looked at the ingredients and there the same? But the prices are very different!! X

    All formulas are essentially the same - no one is "better" than any other, but some kids tolerate some better than others.

    Best just to pick on and see how your LO gets on with it! X

    I mixed both bf and formula from the beginning with my eldest daughter. I bf mixed with formula for 2 months then my milk stopped naturally. In the hospital the gave her HIPP but it didn't suit her so the ped moved her to another one that made her constipated, so the we changed into Bledina anti reflux, which suited her great!
    There is no better formula my ped said, you have to find what suits ur baby, they are all the same.
    And by the way my daughter's immunity has been great, she is now 3 and very healthy.
