Hi,

Mamil Gold is good I think. I gave my son Nan 1 followed by Nan2. After which, I gave Mamil Gold all the way.

For moi...

Holy cow best describe moi, cos this cow can sure express lots!
So being SAHM, we saved... ermm no... should be... hubs saved
lots on milk $$$. I breastfed 1st till like 18mths and 2nd till almost
3yrs.. From hospital was NAN. Follow on milk after BM was Neslac 1+,
Neslac 3+ (with honey) and followed by Dumex Dugro (original) which
they both hated and now all the way stuck with Dumex Dugro 3+
(chocolate) then to the now Dumex Dugro 6+ (chocolate). Its quite
yummy. Like Milo without the extra sugar content and heatiness.

My gal take Friso. I think its good. No constipation (common problem face with formula milk).

BTW its one of the few brand that's Non Halal (feedback by my Muslim friend).

Do note if required.

DS breastfed till 9mo, then it was Mamil Gold, cos that was the only formula that he would take (after trying like 6 brands, luckily at that time was in infant care and the mommies there were kind enough to share their kids formula to let him try try). When he was 20mo, he developed lactose intolerance, so now on Pediasure :cry: . So expensive and the 1.8kg only can last for 10 days. Recently after consulting his pedi, try to switch him back to regular formula slowly, so at night we started giving him Friso, so far so good :xedfingers:

I notice that Friso always has got discount promotions.

I like the little Friso glass milk bottles which the hospital provided. Use it for breast milk feeding after express when my kids were babies.

I'm giving my gal Gain IQ and Pedisure. If she misses her lunch or dinner, I will give her Pedisure. She is quite petite so sometimes I gave a few times in a day. However, one shouldn't exceed more than 1 litre a day.

I spoke to the nutrionist at Abbott and I was told that there are 3 types of children/toddlers taking Pedisure Milk.
1. Underweight
2. Fussy Eater
3. Children who doesn't have the time for breakfast.

The 4th one I heard was from my gal's teacher. She said she gave her son Pedisure to control his diet. That's really interesting.
