Hi! Just wondering how do you/hospital decide on formula for baby??? Do they help/suggest in hospital or do they just give you one type??? Completely lost, any advice appreciated. Thanks :thnk

The hospital told me they have 3 to choose from cow & gate, SMA and Aptimal (sp?) and I need to decide which I want to go for. They said their all around the same as in they wouldn't recommend one of another so you'll need to decide yourself. I logged on to the formula websites and just read a bit about them and got some feedback from other mums on what they used. Most people seemed to be using SMA and seeing as this is what I was feed myself I think I’ll try that. I think it depends on the baby so if one doesn’t suit you switch to another and see how that goes. I was lactose intolerant as a baby so I was on SMA soya so if the baby is the same I’ll switch to that version.
