Yum, yum, Mum!!

AdvantagesAvailable in powder or ready made; Satisfies my baby

DisadvantagesNot 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 suggested that we complemented the breastfeeding with a little formula milk, to ensure that she was getting sufficient food. I was surprised to find so many ..." Read review

Stuff 'em up good!

AdvantagesThicker, more filling milk, peaceful nights!

DisadvantagesNone!

"...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 of relatively peaceful nights, the baby began waking at night wanting an extra bottle. At the time, he was being well fed in the daytime, and we were happy that he was getting all that he wanted. After speaking to a friend, I was recommended to try using Cow & Gate Good Night Milk for ..." Read review

C&G Omneo Comfort - Finally a Good Night's Sleep!

AdvantagesCalmed my baby's colic, constipation and sore tummy

DisadvantagesPricier than other formulas, gives baby a runny/smelly bum

"...feed him. I started Oliver on Cow and Gate Premium but found that it didn't agree with his tummy and was making him colicky and constipated. Fortunately my partner had seen the Cow and Gate Omneo Comfort when he had bought the last tub of milk and recalled that it had said that it was for babies with sensitive tummies. So I sent him out to buy me a tub and we have been using nothing else since. -- PRODUCT DESCRIPTION -- Cow and Gate Omneo ..." Read review

Cow and Gate Premium First Milk Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to use, quality brand

Disadvantagesnot 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. When I had Lily in March, I had to have an emergency caesarean, so we stayed in hospital for 5 days. For that time I breastfed her and was the only person ..." Read review

Cow'n'Gate Premium milk

AdvantagesBaby loves it!

DisadvantagesNone

"...comparing prices etc I chose Cow & Gate premium as I thought it was the best value for money and it states on the box that is close to breastmilk. I have not looked back since as my daughter loves it and has never had any problems drinking it. The premium milk is the first stage in the Cow & Gate milk series and comes in a light green packaging. The series is made up of 4 types of milk - Stage 1 - premium milk - newborn babies Stage 2 - hungry ..." Read review

Cow and gate baby milk review

AdvantagesGreat range

DisadvantagesShould make bigger tubs

"...back up. I had bought cow and gate premium Babies first milk. At first I was giving her both breast and bottle. But to give her breast I had to use a breast pump. I had an electric one which worked really well. But because of all the problems I had. I just wasn't making enough milk for her in the end. Her feeding really picked up and she was demanding all the time which really made me happy. So after 3 weeks I gave up and just stuck to formula. I ..." Read review

Omneo Comfort formula

AdvantagesLow in lactose, solved baby's colicky problems

DisadvantagesMessier to prepare than other milk, due to packaging

"...most helpful site and bought Cow & Gate Omneo Comfort 1 formula after reading some reviews. This is a formula suitable for babies from birth, comes in 900g box containing 2 foil packs and a scoop. Simple to make up with 1 scoop of powder per 30ml of boiled water, but note the water should be fairly hot - only wait 15mins after boiling the kettle. The foil pack's foldover top tends to get in the way of the scoop so you do spill some of the powder. This ..." Read review

Premium, plus, step up, next steps

Advantagesreadily available, easy to use, baby likes it

Disadvantagessmells 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 any of the other brands. I bought several brands of milk in small cartons to try, cow and gate premium was the first we tried and my baby took to it straight ..." Read review

Cow and gate, not such a good night milk

AdvantagesDefinatly thicker and filling

DisadvantagesTo filling to drink much of

"...a 'special' milk. Clever marketing Cow and Gate! So we gave her the new formula, which was definatly thicker than her normal Cow and Gate Follow on milk. Looking at the ingredients it seems it is due to putting rice flakes in the milk, personally I thought we weren't supposed to do that but if they are selling it this way, it must be alright surely? It was thick enough that in her Closer to Nature Tommie Tippee bottles, the teat was to small and I ..." Read review

Really close to Breastmilk?

AdvantagesEasy to prepare, Close to breastmilk

A Real Lifeline

AdvantagesThicker formula lies heavier on baby's tum and is more comfortable to digest

Disadvantages£1.00 more expensive than other formulas by C&G

"...happen. We were giving him cow and gate first steps, which costs £5.97 at our local Boots, but we were going through it like it was going out of fashion. I felt like I was constantly feeding, changing, feeding, changing. It was soul-destroying and so frightening to see your tiny newborn mimicking something off The Excorcist. I spoke to our Health Visitor who said "Don't worry, he'll settle down, you've just got to persevere..." I was naughty and ..." Read review

satisfactory milk drink

Advantagessatisfying for baby

DisadvantagesAs 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,by 'Cow and Gate',this is stage one, and is described on the box as 'first infant milk for hungrier babies from birth onwards'.This she seemed more content ..."

Cow and Gate Premium

AdvantagesEasy for baby to digest, great easy to use packaging

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of yet!

"...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 give his poop a consistancy similar to breastmilk poop which is softer and easier to pass - a big bonus for a baby who feels much more comfortable. The packaging is well designed and I would never go back to usual the old ..." Read review

Comforting stuff

AdvantagesEasy to make up, makes for a happy, settled baby

DisadvantagesNone

"...the beginning. I used Cow and Gate Premium to start with and was happy with this and my daughter gained weight steadily. At about two months, she suddenly began to be really colicky and brought up most of her feeds each time. In addition she was serously bunged up with constipation. The poor littly might must have been really uncomfortable. After trying colic drops, various winding and massage techniques, and orange juice in her water, I called the ..." Read review
