SMA Gold Infant Formula Stage 1 (from birth) 900g £5.99 @ Home Bargains

10
Found 19th Jan 2012
They've had the 'hungry baby' stage 1 formula @ £5.99 before but I've never seen them selling the normal stuff at that price. Picked some up from my local yesterday.

Tesco £8.87
Asda £8.99
Sainsburys £8.87

Great buy for those of us who use it

Hot for price but my 2 week old is having colic from it as its very rich, I have read on internet this is quite common problem with SMA & that Aptimil is closest to breast milk.

I think it depends on the baby. My lb has had all sorts of problems and SMA is the only one he has ever got on with. Aptamil, Cow and Gate, even prescription formulas have all made him even more sick than usual so we ended up going back to SMA. Good for me because its the cheapest!

+1. We had to go back to SMA but this time its SMA LF on HVs suggestion and its working fine for my lb. Each baby is unique though....

BTW, isn't it illegal for companies to offer discounts on 1st stage formula?

Yes, it is. Which makes me think that £5.99 is the RRP and most places just bump up the price because they can....

Yes very stupid indeed. It is illegal to offer discounts but it not illegal to sell them at higher price.
