Where to buy Aptamil baby formula in/near Basel

I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I can buy Aptamil baby milk (either the powder or the ready made cartons)?

I live in Basel. I've seen the powder for sale in Migros / Coop but it seems ridiculously priced. Haven't seen the ready made cartons anywhere and would quite like to find some as they are useful for travelling.

Are there any shops accross the border which might have a better and cheaper selection?

Thanks in advance!
Naomi

You can buy Aptamil if you go grocery shopping to Germany (eg. Lörrach, Weil am Rhein). It's definitely cheaper to buy it there

Yes, baby milk is pricey here. I recall having seen it in Marktkauf, in Weil am Rhein, Germany.

It's ridiculously priced everwhere. And it gets even worse if you run out on a Sunday...

Edit: We have a Mullers right next door. It's cheaper there by a few franks.

Yes Marktkauf in the Rhine Centre has a selection of Aptamil and Aptamil HA, as well as lots of other varieties. Definitely cheaper, 11 euros I think for a box. Very happy mine has moved onto cows milk- if only those came in slightly bigger cartons!

Re: Where to buy Aptamil baby formula in/near Basel

but you have to take care
for some Aptamil products the ingredients are different in Germany
for example Aptamil Comfort isnt the same like Aptamil Confort
