What does this mean?

Ignoring the spelling, we should watch out for milk *not* imported from China?

What contaminated milk?

And who feeds their country formula?

I'm sure you've got a valid point in there somewhere, I'm just struggling to find it.

I dont have a problem with formula as our duaghers used to have it, but i think follow on milk is just a marketing ploy, propper cows milk is fine and cheaper without all the chemicals

regardless of my opinion on any kind of formula, patricklu was just warning people bout the bad batch, not having a go about artaficial feeding in general.

and tesco, saisnsbury had same chance of having them as the corner shop
#15
I wouldnt personally buy Follow On milk, but I can see why this would be a good deal for people who do.

If your feeding your baby formula your recommened to keep them on the same one until 12 months unless totally necessary.

My health visitor would kill me if I started to use Follow-On, I think she said that follow on milks contain iron because after 6 months babies have run out of what they were born with, but she said if you just give green veg etc then it does the same job.

I agree that Follow-On milk is just a marketing ploy, as we could easily buy some brocolli or something and save £6.
#16
Sweeeeet!

Having new twins we spend a fortune on this stuff! Thanks!!!

patricklu - sorry mate, but I think that's a completely pointless and idiotic statement. What has this got to do with China's recent problem? We're talking about SMA, the established UK market leader for the product, not some unregulated Chinese backstreet outfit.

But people [us included] continue to feed bottles during weaning, you can't put broccoli in a bottle! I take your point on the iron though, we didn't know that. At 6 months old our 2 get loads of homemade veg purée... mmmmm. Our health visitor mentioned nothing about that - this shows the in consistency of information.
#18
I believe Formula has its place, so I've got nothing against it. However, I was under the impression that shops and supermarkets aren't allowed to do special offers on formula, in the same way that you'll never see a BOGOF on cigarrettes for example?

(Yes I know formula can't really be compared to cigarrettes, but hopefully someone will understand what I'm on about!)

No you cant put brocolli in a bottle, but you still continue to give a bottle whilst weaning, but it should just be your regular formula milk, if your kids get homemade veg puree then they shouldnt need the follow on milk anyways.

I love my health visitor, I've had her with all my 3 kids, shes not pushy and tells you how it is, I trust her judgement but the thing is the powers at be chop and change there minds so often of when its acceptable to give certain things that I guess some information gets lost along the way.

It would be just fine if SMA dont import any ingredients from the troubled company, you think you should trust the market leader so as those people whose baies got kidney stone in China. You can trut no one.

My comment is purely a warning towards this incident and the fomula, not against SMA but for those who use the product to feed their babies, you have the responsibility and enough concern to double check where SMA's product come from.

So how idiot is my statement?

Now I finger cross fro you, JayDubya.

Not allowed to do promos on new born formula but this is substitute for cows milk for older babies.

Not sure how the cost per pint compares to cows milk or the relative nutritional benefits but obviously powder stores better...

OK, done the maths, at £6 per tin this costs about 58p/pint cf 4pts of 2% at about £1.50 = 37.5p/pint or 4pints 1% in Sains for £1 (when they have it in stock) at 25p/pint

The follow on milk has more iron than cows milk as stated above but it is also sweeter so more teeth issues. It appears to be not recommended for over 2s but we use it for our older girls when we are travelling as it is easy to make up whenever needed.
#23
Heat added. I have fed both my children on SMA progress into their 2 years. Both are not great eaters, so I was feeling a little bit better by giving them a good milk (much better than cow's). The youngest who is 26 months is now on Growing Up Milk for Toddlers (such as the cow and gate one).
It's just makes me feel better to give them a "special" milk.

..in China. You can trust no one...


Well, out of context, part of what you say is true. ;-)
I have every sympathy for the victims in China who have been betrayed by an industry lacking legislation from it's government, but put the emotive argument aside.

The term "chemicals" is a bit strong there, don't you think? Half of those ingredients are vitamins and minerals. Its not like they're colourings and preservatives. Break down anything and its made up of chemicals. And are there not reasons in the government guidelines on why you should not use cows milk this early on?

The other reason to move onto "progress" as I just remembered, was the newborn stuff was leaving our babies hungry. This stuff is definitely more substantial.

SMA 0

Given hot, though my kids are too old, but HUKD is about posting deals regardless as no deal can ever apply to everyone!

SMA used to be £5.95 when I used to buy, and sometimes did 2 for £10 (in 2002) - felt too high then - still feels too high at £12/2
#29
I am now in the process of weening my daughter off of this and on to cows milk, I always looked out for it when it was on offer like this. I breastfed my daughter until she was 6 months old and she naturally stopped herself when she was on solids. I had no problems giving this to her as it was better than nothing. As she was 10lb 7oz at birth she used to take huge amounts of breast milk but now has just 1pint a day 8oz formula and 8 oz cows milk. she is 1 in a couple of weeks.
Good deal

that only applies to infant first milk, once your child turns six months they are fair game. hence the ads. if u look carefully they are all only for the follow onmilks, even though they are often shown next to a newborn child the actual ads are for over six months.

law only stops promotion of any sort, on milk for under six month olds.

"special", thats classic!!!

ive heard some things but calling a cows milk, filled with chemaicals special is just comical in a worrying kind of way.

aint nothing more special than nature. :whistling:

From here

"Studies have shown that babies who are breastfed are less likely to be obese in later life and gain protection against conditions like asthma, eczema and chest infections. Mothers benefit too, with studies showing a protective effect against ovarian and breast cancer.

The Department of Health recommends exclusive breastfeeding up to six months, with continued breastfeeding alongside solid foods afterwards."

also the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION says:
Infants who are not breastfed, for whatever reason, should receive special attention from the health and social welfare system since they constitute a risk group.

very scary i feel. :oops:

Only on formula for babies under 6 months old :thumbsup: all other formula (like this) is fair game for savings. :)

Having formula does not necessarily mean a child has not been breast fed. It may be a supplement to breastfeeding, or used later on after breastfeeding has stopped. Breastfeeding is important in the early stages of a child life, i.e. the first 3 months, after which they have gleaned the resistance provided from their mother's milk.

the world heath organisation says should breastfeed solely till 6moths and continue to supplement a healthy eating diet with breast milk until they are two!!!!!

and any baby that is not given breast milk for WHATEVER reason should be treated as at risk by the health and wealthfare people.

not my opionion, what the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISTAION stipulates.

(though i do agree, and think that miss infomation-such as u saying for three months bla bla, is very irresponsible)
#37
All these comments really make me laugh! As a pose to "breast is best" for the babies health ~ rubbish!! My little girl is 15 months old and has only ever had 1 cold (caught off me) and fortunately never really been ill ~ the odd temperature now and then and thats it! She was breast fed for 3 days and then formula and still has formula now! My friends little girl was breast fed for 8 months and not a week goes by without her being sick or having a cold or a virus of some sort!!!!

EXCELLENT deal by the way!! Just when i am running very low!
#38
its about risks etc. not one child is the same. my dad is more at risk from cancer than my friend, and yet my friend was the one that got it. so what take up smoking cos based on this its a load of codswollop.

use your head
#39
Ha Ha so i took a risk when i chose to give my little girl formula instead of continuing to breastfeed as it was making me ill and was far too painful! Good one!!!
#40
well yeah you did. obviously. shame you never had the support that women deserve to help them through difficulties in breast feeding. i know many mums that have stopped because they have felt there is no other option, they just need the support and help. it such a shame that the support isnt there always when they need it most. my friend was very fortunate to have a lot of support through cracked nipples, mastitis, thrush, a rare infection caused by thrush medicine and even a prob with babes teeth causing him not to latch easily. she had ALOT of support and is now th the other end of it, feeding her now almost two year old. and helping other mothers who are struggling.
