Pregnancy and Baby Advice Thread: Brands, Feeding, Nursery, Bathing, Everything!
Hi lovely ladies x
I thought I'd start this thread off because it may be useful to everyone, and will be easier to follow rather than having to go through lots of diaries to find the information. ;) :)
Basically the aim of this thread is to share advice, and to ask questions in case we get a little confused. Especially being a first time mum and having no idea, I can find all the different makes of bottles, formulas, etc very confusing - and trust me, the list doesn't just stop at what bottles to buy! For me anyway ;) :D
I thought this would be a good space to do this, and would be an easy place to go back to for reference if we need to. This may help us all at some point, and of course any other lovely pregnant ladies who join the Pregnancy Without the Pounds section! :)
I know from my own experience, I'm a little confused at times as what to go for when it comes to my baby, plus I have an awful lot of silly questions I'd like to ask!!!
I'm going to start this off with:
If bottle or combi-feeding, what Formula are you going to go for and why? There are so many different brands out there that all claim to do amazing things, and I'm a little confused at what to try for my baby when the time comes :)
Please feel free to join in with your questions and advice! (and of course to answer my question lol :D )

Great idea Jess!
Oh with formula my mum always recommends using aptamil (I think cow and gate is very similar to that too) and to stay away from SMA as SMA is notorious for giving babies constipation due to the iron content I think.
All the babies in my family have been fed aptamil and never had bad tummies. One of my friends used sma and breast and poor little thing was so constipated that they had to get medicine for him :(
SMA works well for some but im going to stick with aptamil when I use formula.
