    They claimed the new formula would help make baby's poops looser but I havent noticed a difference. She's still mega constipated. I'm thinking about switching to Aptamil cos its the same price now anyway :wacko:

    No difference, my LO poops everyday on SMA sometimes even twice and has done since he's been on it.. and still no change.
    Just be careful changing over but if it makes your LO less constipated go for it! :thumbup:

    Nessicle how long has Ava been on the new formula? It might take a while to start working it's way through. When Fran was first born she was constipated at 2 days old and her poo was quite hard for a while. It took a few weeks for her tummy to get used to the formula and eventually her poo got softer and softer.

    It's been the same since we started on hungry baby for some of her feeds - she didn't poo for a couple of days at one point and it was very hard when it came out but it's starting to get back to normal again now xx

    WoW where did you get all that milk from? hahahaha!!

    And I think you can tell if it's a new tin as its slightly different in design. Dont quote me though. I buy 4weeks worth at a time too same as bigbetty so not sure I have had a new batch yet!

    wowzers lady!! Is that the readymade stuff? I dont think they've brought the new readymade out yet, just the powder. It says "new formula" on it so you wont miss it if you see it :flower:

    thanks hun - well she's been on SMA since she was about 13 week old and shes 22 weeks now. The new formula she's been on just coming up to 2 weeks hopefully it'll start getting softer. She's on 3 meals a day too so its hard to tell if its food or if its the formula causing constipation but she's having tons of fruit so it should be making her poo explode - if I was eating that much fruit I'd be pooing through the eye of a needle :rofl: xx

    :haha: me too lol! Fran had already poo'd this morning when I went to change her nappy after she woke up - the carrot she has been having for tea must be working it's magic lol! It took me by surprise though because you can normally smell it a mile off but I didn't know it was there until I took her nappy off lol!

    I've noticed the new sma formula makes littens stools green and softer I think it depends on the baby.

    My daughter is really consitipated on SMA I dont know if i should change to Aptimal or not, part of me does not want to mess with her but her poo is so hard and she is straining like a "geezer" to get it out!! :( She is on the "new" formula so for her it really hasn't worked.
