We started our baby off with SMA Gold but heard that Milupa Aptamil was better for avoiding constipation. Whilst we cannot say for sure whether this has made a difference, our baby is now 5 weeks old and has not yet suffered from Constipation.
Milupa Aptamil is packaged in a dodgy foil package resembling a coffee bean pack. (2 per box). This makes it difficult to dispense and to store.
Whilst it appears that Milupa Aptamil First Infant Formula is one of the more expensive formulas on the market, we were reassured that this was the closest available to breast milk (we had problems with breast feeding, therefore this was a concern) Recommended by friends to reduce the risk of constipation and secretly endorsed by a midwife in the hospital (they advised me that they are not allowed to recommend !!)
