Nestle NAN HA Gold 1 & 2 Formula $17.90 (Usually $22.40, 20% off) @ Woolworths

100

I stumbled across this gem while I was doing my shopping at Woolies online. Couldn't find it in the catalogue so not sure what's going on there. I've never seen it cheaper than this. Went for the maximum 4 tins - just hope they have stock.

Also, the NAN HA 3 is $16.70.

    Asians don't want this anyways. Its Karicare or Bellamys.

    •  

      which part of asia to be specific?? even india is a part of asia

    •  

      Too pity to lose money for NAN. Why asians don't like it?

    •  

      Don't forget a2

      •  

        You're right, but there is a even greater shortage on A2. The reason why they generally only like these three is because of the packaging. The lids don't burst in high altitudes. S26 have recently corrected this - looking to tap into the asians.

      There are laws against formula quality so they are pretty much all the same. We have been using a cheaper one Heinz nurture, its around $15-16 for a 900g tin. Not available at coles/woolworths though, Big w and chemist warehouse sell it.

      breast milk is THE best, pity many mums cant even do it now

        they can, but some won't do it. too busy perhaps

          No, many can't. They really, really want to but can't. And then people tell them they "should" be able to, which can be quite damaging to a new mother's mental health.

          @brazen00:

          With the exception of 1, every other mum I've come across choosing not to breast feed, had little to do with an inability to produce enough milk, but rather wanting to maintain…….Perkiness…..

          @xuqi:
          Perkiness… really? I've never ever met a new mum that didn't breastfeed due to being worried about their future breast shape!
          The reality is, a lot of families now rely on having that second income. And even for some that choose to feed, the added stress either causes the milk to dry up or even worse… mastitis!

          Pretty rude comments as I wish I could breastfeed. Its
          so much easier than having to make up bottles and measure out the formula every 3hours! Its not about being busy, its about giving baby whats best for them! Some mothers milk isn't good quality, other babies can't latch so you give them formula. What would you rather happen to them??? starve to death?!

        •  

          @clarebear: Yeah I can't understand the misinformed and insensitive comments here. My wife spent months of pain and anguish trying to get my boys to latch. In the end our paediatrician recommended formula as he could see what it was doing to her.

        • +1 vote

          @xuqi: I've never heard of that before and neither has my wife. In most cases it's not about "choosing not to breast feed" but an inability to get it all working.

        You have no idea what you're talking about. Most parents that formula feed do it because they CAN'T breast feed (ie, my wife). Whether it be due to extreme pain, or flow issues, it doesn't matter. I have 3 kids that are formula raised and they have no ill effects from it.

        Check your opinions next time.

      S26 if you want low protein content. High amounts of protein in childhood is PROVEN to be a cause of obesity later in life. Nan and S26 are also preferable if you actually want to be able to source it. Otherwise they are all pretty much equivalent. The companies themselves will say otherwise but all meet the standards in Australia which are set pretty high.

      Trick is, if you find one that works - don't change it.
      And yes, breast milk is recommended but use formula for inbetween feeds. You can't realistically breastfeed 24/7 when they are newborns. Also take my advice with a grain of salt. Dont want to get sued .

    I've never really felt confident in giving this stuff a try again after the issues they, and I, had back in 2012!

    •  

      Whoever negged me clearly didn't have a baby in 2012 that was using this stuff!!! ;)

      •  

        What happened? My son was on formula in 2012. He was a s26 drinker so I am not up on what happened with Nan Ha.

          They changed the ingredients of the product and many parents had noted adverse reactions from it, inc. body rashes, darker runny poos, more irritable, etc.
          My first born was on it at the time, so obviously we were paying very close attention to any reactions he had to his formula. Luckily (depends how you look at it) our boy didn't have any rashes from it, but definitely the poos and crying!
          Even with health depts saying that the product was within safety guidelines, parents banded together to have Nestle recall the product!
          From memory, I believe they did a voluntary recall and changed the ingredient make up back. Coles/Woolies removed all of theirs, but I do remember seeing Chemist Warehouse selling it off for about $14-$15, which was insanely cheap at the time (and still would be)!

    Nan HA gold is being phased out to a new product Optipro HA gold soon. All the HA gold boxes have a warning sticker on them. Be mindful that changing a baby formula is not easy as they have tummy pains and stuff if they are not eased into a new brand. If starting on a new formula look for some other brand which will stay for long. Bellamys is good as its organic but is a tough one for newborn babies to digest as it has casein from cows milk in it instead of whey found in HA. Thats why they say breast milk is the best as babies are really not designed to have formula.

    •  

      Try telling that to the person that wants to argue with me about uselessness of using a formula sample! https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/225757
      And agree on the Bellamys,well at least for our new one` anyway. Took us about 2 months and about 4 or 5 attempts to get it right (inc. Comfort, Bellamys, ARs and thickener at a lower ratio)!

    •  

      I've just picked up my order with the Nan HA Gold. None of the tins have any kind of warning about being phased out. Do you have a source for this?

      •  

        We've had it on our tins for a few weeks now (we buy one tin a week) of the Nan HA Gold 1. It's a blue and white label on the plastic cover. They'll be doing the change over in March next year, my kid will hopefully be transitioning off formula by then!

        Here's more information from the Nestle site:

          Thanks. Hopefully by March my son will be close to being off it too!

    Nan formula is cheap, also Huggies nappies are cheap, and with promo codes like 'HOLIDAYS20' ($20 off $100 - may be targeted) or 'WK25OFF' ($10 off $100), plus using your discounted gift cards, can make for some incredibly good buying!
