Cow and Gate 12 Feed Starter Pack from Newborn Stage 1 - £13.99 from Mothercare

Found 1st Apr 2013
Where as newborn milk seems to be price fixed this one is cheaper from Mothercare than anywhere else.

This is what the NHS hand out to new mums as it does not require heating simple remove the lid and use. It's expensive as each bottle comes with a sterilised teat but is great for traveling or night feeds where you cant face boiling a kettle, cooling it down etc...

Although the 900g powder is the cheapest when you factor in the cost of boiling the kettle an the time wasted sorting the feed we personally use the 1L Ready to Feed bottle.

£ 1.33 a litre - 900g (Large) Powder
£ 1.87 a litre - 400g (Small) Powder
£ 2.69 a litre - Ready to feed Litre Bottle
£ 3.10 a litre - Ready to feed 200ml Carton
£12.85 a litre - Starter Pack Bottles

You'll be lucky to find an nhs hospital prepared to hand out free formula milk. Ive just had a baby and the maternity dept didnt seem to want to support those mums who, for whatever reason, preferred to bottlefeed

A quid cheaper than everywhere else. Its very rare that baby milk is discounted so I would love to know where the cold voters are getting it cheaper as I use these for convenience when we are out for the day. Heat added from me!

Our hospital had no problem handing these out, my partner was not making enough milk to feed our new baby so after breast feeding we topped up the feed with these.

These are great, very handy, but very expensive. We keep a box of them for emergencies.

We proudly bottle feed.

isn't aptimal better?

at our local hospital, the midwives slated C&G and SMA and recommended Aptimal. They supplied us with a few of these free when we had issues with feeding. I don't think all NHS supply Cow and Gate only.

C&g and aptimal are one in the same company. Same formula too.

Not sure but the chemist told me which saved me a few quid. They both do a comfort range which is exactly the same just nearly £2 cheaper.

Thank you for the info

What's the use by date on these like? Not due for another 7 weeks and will hopefully be breastfeeding but just in case I think I'll get some of these!
