    Is there any difference?

    ruby retains wind badly and it wakes her up a lot at night. I am thinking to change to one of these 2 formulas.

    Does anyone have any experience of either?

    BTW she is half BF half FF.

    Elinor had probs keepin feeds down... our health visitor changed onto cow and gate comfrot one. I would speak to health visitor before changing formula as they advice it because it can upset the wee ones tummy apparently.

    good luck tho i hope you get something sorted :)

    :hugs:

    I think they're both the same (but don't quote me!). I looked at the ingredients and they are identical, as is all the nutritional info. We use the Aptimel one.

    Ive just changed Leo from the Aptimil as I found it really upset his tummy, his poos were sloppy and he was very unsettled. I put him on the cow and gate comfort yesterday dinner time and he has been a dream since!
    I had Lily on this when it was called Omnio comfort 5 years ago and it was a god send......I didnt know it had changed names until yesterday or I would have had him on it straight from birth. Gets 5 stars from me!

    We used to have the same problem with Thomas getting wind in the night. We tried the Aptamil easy digest, and found that he was feeding much more regularly as I think he digested it much more quickly. It was strange stuff! We ended up throwing the best part of the tub away!
