Formula Questions for my German Mamas
« on: August 01, 2014, 06:09:45 am »
Any moms in Germany have any experience with Formula? Looking at doing Formula during DF but I have no idea which brand to choose. He's 6mo old

I'm not sure we have any formula feeding mums from Germany here!

All formulas are pretty much of a muchness though as they are all made to a standard. What suits one isn't always the best for another so your best bet is to pick a brand and see how it goes! A formula suitable from birth is fine for the first year, there are 6month+ formulas available in the UK so you can probably get those. They tend to have more iron which can be constipating though.

I am in Germany :)

When DS was on formula we were in Ireland but I used "Hipp", which is from here. You can get it in DM.
But like Laura said every baby is different and I tried others before that didn't work for him, for example "Holle".
