Re: Baby care

The one your baby likes. Babies can get used to the taste of a specific formula, and then it can be a bit difficult to get them to change.

Otherwise, we've had good eperiences with Hipp producs. They have a variety of formulas, including the HA (hypo-allergic) range. They come in four varieties: "Pre" (newborn) and stages 1 to 3 (up to 6 months - after 6 months - after 10 months). The website is in German and French only. These products do not contain sweeteners or aromas, and to me, they taste horrible, but there is a mention on the pack that while adults will not like the taste, it's the right thing for babies. Looks as if folks like me have discontinued using baby formula based on taste... .

I can recommend Hipp, too, especially the new "combiotik" range - does wonders if your baby suffers from constipation. Hipp is also used by the University Hospital in Zurich.

Re: Baby care

We tried Milupa and the Nestle Brand and my daughter prefered the Milupa. What I like most about the Milupa is that the carton is resealable and less messy; with Nestle the powder is in a pouch and I found it kind of got everywhere, I also didn't like that the pouch wasn't resealable (but that is just me)

Everyone has their own preferences and depending on your pediatrician they may have their own recomendation. In the end your baby will let you know which one they like best.

Re: Baby care

I use the Nestle product, if your baby is not allergic then you can use optipro, it is always better to check in apotheke, they will suggest you.

Re: Baby care

I use Aptamil for simply reason that I have the same powder in my home country but with different name.
Do you have picture of your powder milk? Maybe there is the same in Switzerland?

Where should she find the donated breastmilk in Switzerland? All well and good that they do it in USA but they don't seem to have any resources for here.
