I am currently using S26 Gold, DD takes it fine, but has to push quite a lot to have a poo.  She still goes every day or so and it is not hard and dry, more like soft clay.

However, CHN suggested NAN as it is cheaper... but looking at the tin it says to put in 5 scoops per 100ml (i think thats right from memory).  If thats the case it certaintly is not cheaper as the S26 is 2 scoops per 120mls.  Are the NAN scoops smaller????

I use NAN HA Gold and it's 1 scoop per 30ml of water.
Somewhere on the tin, it says how many grams are in each scoop.

yes the NAN scoop looks smaller than S26. As peanut1 said above, NAN is 1 scoop to 30ml water, so it's good when you want to make 150mls when bub drinks more than 120mls & hasn't got to finishing 180mls yet, iykwim.

Nan is a much smaller scoop!

You need to look for the scoop size information on the tins. Nan's scoop is 4.4g and Im not sure about s26 but i know the karicare one is 7.9g scoop.

Also each tin will tell you how much powder is needed to make 100ml of formula. There really isnt much difference between any of the brands in that department.

I have been using nan as s26 was too hard for my boy to digest and nan has been good to us.

I actually think that I used less nan than I did of the s26 now I come to think of it as the nan seemed to fill him up better that the s26.

Anyway good luck (and you have to look really hard for the info about the scoops as its always in some strange spot on the tin in tiny writing!)

I've only used the NAN Gold.  I'm not sure on value compared to the S26 however you'll find that Kmart and Target don't stock it, so you can't buy up cheap on their 15% off days.

However, I used to buy it at Coles for I think $19-$20 a tin but have since found my local chemist (umder the "My Chemest" brand) has it for $14.99 which seems to be their normal price!  I'm off to get some more today   original.gif

Chemist Warehouse sells NAN gold HA for $14.99.  We buy a case at a time as Woolies sells it for $20.99! That's a BIG difference.

Here are the locations for Chemist Warehouse

Thanks Meghan, Parramatta is quite close for me so I'll be there to pick up a box soon.

The NAN scoops are really small which is a bit of a pain but worthwhile.  Is she suggesting the NAN HA (Gold) because it is excellent with babies that find it hard to poo.

Good luck!

Hi Peanut1

The My Chemist is in Chatswood in the mall area near the station.  I went in today and they had run out.  They should have had some more in today, however they received the from 6mths instead.  They said they should have some tomorrow.  I also noticed that if your a "My Chemist" member it is cheaper  $13.99  original.gif

We use NAN HA1 and are really happy with it. A warning though - I read on EB beforehand that poos are dark green and very stinky! I'm glad I was forewarned because they are rather nasty!

I like the small scoop because DD doesn't drink a full bottle (she's only on bottles during the day, BF early AM and PM) so it's nice to be able to mix up a little less at a time.

I will second Kylie on those green stinky poos.  Charlize had been on the Nan gold for about 5 weeks but her poos went really green and stinky on since last saturday so I am trying her on the Karicare.

The stench and mess from the poos was just too much.

OMG... talk about smell!!!  I have a much happier baby by using NAN... But she even disgusts herself with the smell!!!!!  I am going to persevere with NAN to see if the smell gets any better...I'm giving it at least two weeks.
