Hi Holly, I had intended using SMA but I've heard from a few people that Aptimel (not to be confused with Actimel as my non-maternal friend did ) is meant to be the closest to breast milk on the market. It's a bit more expensive though.
I was raised on SMA and it didn't do me any harm though!! I'll probably chose between those two when my time comes x
when pregnant i was adament i was bottle feeding but wanted Rhiannon to have the one closest to breastmilk, so i choose aptimal, then i breast fed for 4 days and wanted her to get the closest taste so that the switch wouldnt be too confusing, gave her aptimal and she is thriving on it
My son was a very hungry baby and so i switched from SMA to cow & gate and now he is a very tall(he is 3ft 2") and very healthy 2 year old...If i am blessed with another baby i will definatly be using cow & gate again
