I first started my daughter on sma gold as that's what all my family had used, however she seemed unsettled and did bring quite a bit of her feeds up, nothing major but enough to make me wonder if it was her milk not agreeing with her. I ummed and ahhed for the first 7 weeks of her life whether to change her to aptamil or not, I heard a lot about cow and gate being the same so I tried that first but still was pretty much the same so went back to sma gold thinking that must just be how babies are and I'm worrying over nothing. I don't know why I picked up aptamil at Asda instead of sma, I just thought what the hell, I've heard of so many people changing to aptamil and it changing their babies completely, I'm just going to try it. I felt ever so guilty making up those first lot of bottles with aptamil, all I could think of is what must all this swapping and changing be doing to my poor babies digestive system, but it was too late now, she needed feedin and that's all I had. Wow! After the first bottle, no sick at all, not even a little when she brought up wind! She is much more settled and happier and I'm so glad I did it. What I want to get across in this review is to not listen to everyone who says that baby being a bit unsettled, a bit sick is normal because a change in milk could be all your baby needs. I put off changing to this milk because I listened to these people and after changing her milk once with no difference I felt too bad to change again but in the long run for a couple of weeks of having different milk it's well worth it to have a happier baby for months to come when I could still be dealing with a slightly sicky and unsettled baby and still wondering if it may be her milk!
