Not available in larger cartons

***** Why Cow & Gate? ***** When I first had Ellie, I began by breastfeeding. As she was so little, however (she weighed only 5lbs 14oz), she didn't really take to breastfeeding that well at first and she would only suckle for vey short lengths of time before falling to sleep. My midwife...

Making the decision to formula feed your baby is a hard one. Not only do you feel incredibly guilty for not being able to do (and in my case, not really wanting to do) one of the most natural things in the world, I have found a lot of people seem to be intent on telling you why breastfeeding is...

“Stuff 'em up good!”

published 18/09/2008

Thicker, more filling milk, peaceful nights!

None!

One thing I have learnt during the first year of parenthood is that a baby's routine changes constantly, or certainly that was the case with my little one. Cow & Gate Good Night Milk helped me during one such difficult phase I was faced with at around the 6 month stage. After a couple of months...

“Cow'n'Gate Premium milk”

published 30/07/2006

Baby loves it!

None

I decided as soon that I was pregnant that I did not want to breastfeed so I spent nine months trying to decided which milk I was going to feed to my newborn. After reading the labels and comparing prices etc I chose Cow & Gate premium as I thought it was the best value for money and it states on...

Easy to use, quality brand

not breastfeeding, is it?

I bought Cow and Gate Baby Milk before I had my daughter as although I wanted to breast feed, I was also aware that I needed a back up - just in case. I picked it out as it is a brand that I recognised, I thought that all baby milks were much of a muchness and Cow and Gate is averagely priced...

Great range

Should make bigger tubs

General When I was pregnant I was really sure that I was going to breastfeed, I did for a while. But things were a bit hard at the start when my little baby girl was born. , I was having a phenomenally long labour and was getting really tired and emotional. I had been in labour for 13 hours so I...

My baby was becoming increasingly "colicky" and crying about 80% of his time awake, by the age of 10 weeks. I had breast fed him for about 7 weeks then gradually moved on to SMA Gold which had been fine for my daughter. Didn't really get any helpful advice from health visitor ("..some babies cry...

readily available, easy to use, baby likes it

smells yukky!

Cow and Gate was the first milk I tried, and its the only milk I've used. I began mixed feeding when my baby was 6 days old, moving to sole bottle feeding at 3 weeks old. I chose cow and gate because it was the milk I'd had as a baby and because (sad as it sounds) I liked the packaging more than...

Not for me

Definatly thicker and filling

To filling to drink much of

Well, I guess I should have really had my suspicions when my friend who has a similar aged baby to my little girl (7 months), gave it to me free and looked particularly haggard that day. 'What a wonderful gesture' I thought to myself, as I know that this little 400g tub costs £4.98at Tesco and...

£1.00 more expensive than other formulas by C&G

When our eldest son, Jake (now 2) was a baby, he had horrendous reflux. He would basically drink a whole bottle then throw the whole lot back up. He'd end up soaked through with regurgetated milk and would need all his bedding, clothes etc changing 3 or 4 times in the night. Then an hour later...

“satisfactory milk drink”

published 21/04/2003

satisfying for baby

As mentioned on another opinion,sticks to fingers

I have two children and have used the 'Cow and Gate' baby milk on both, still using on the one. I first started my eldest daughter on the 'premium' powder,(green box),but found that she was hungry all the time,it didnt seem to satisfy her needs. So I then started to introduce the 'plus' baby milk...

Easy to make, helps with colic

Expensive

I first started to use this formula with my son when he was 3 days old. After having gone through 3 different changes of milk with him when I was in hospital I finally settled on the one milk they couldn't provide..Cow & Gate Comfort Omneo 1. I had gone to my local supermarket to have a look at...

None that I can think of yet!

I began by breatsfeeding my son for the first six weeks, we then switched him onto formula (not Cow and Gate). He instantly became constipated and unsettled. Someone recommended the Cow and gate milk as it contains prebiotics - to help aid digestion. Basically what they do for my baby is they...

“Omneo is a real Comfort”

published 23/02/2001

Thick feed, designed for unsettled babies

Most expensive formula on the market

My son developed colic at six weeks, and we spent a fortune on SMA babymilk and Infacol colic remedy each week. Then Cow & Gate's Omneo Comfort appeared on Tesco's shelves. It was (and still is) the most expensive formula on the market, but was cheaper than ordinary formula and Infacol combined...
