    I am going to try and bf so don't know much about this, although I bought a tin for emergencies last week in Tesco. Is it the case that they can't discount formula for birth to six months? I only ask because there are loads of weird rules surrounding it because the government encourages bf (you can't collect clubcard points on it, can't get vouchers for money off and it is not allowed to be advertised on tv etc).

    Just wondered if this was the case?

    ^^ Yes, that's true. They're not allowed to discount baby formula for babies under 6 months old, and nor are they allowed to offer any other incentives to buy it - i.e. buy one get one free, or clubcard/Nectar points. You'll find they're priced the same everywhere :)

    I think ASDA has them on offer just now, try tesco too as you normally get 2 for £x in store x

    Not the newborn formula - they're not allowed to have them on special offer.

    I was going to say the same as everyone above. They are really strict on advertising formula for newborns. When I signed up for the all the internet mother and baby clubs they all made me tick a disclaimer to say I gave consent to being sent info on formula and even then I dont think I was sent anything re newborn milk.

    At the end of the day formula feeding will probably cost around £40+ a month. I think a lot of mummies BF because of this cost!

    I had SMA for my son who was born in 2006 and couldnt believe how much it was now when i looked in the shops the other week. Going to try to b/f again but going to get in a tub of Hipp Organic just incase b/f doesnt go to plan again. Decided to go for a cheaper milk this time around and i think the Hipp one sounds ok?
