Can anyone please tell me if you are able to buy NESTLE NAN 3 in New Zealand. My daughter will be on holiday in NZ for November and won't be able to take her babies formula on the plane..
Many thanks
Janette

our boy was on NAN gold (i think) in SA, it's not the same stuff over here, we had a battle to even get him to drink it - i tasted it and it was yuck..metallic taste to it.

we had him on novolac stage 1/2 which is great btw. it's about $30-$35 for a 900g tin per week. at pharmacies only at that stage, the supermarkets didn't stock it, not sure if they have it now.

at this stage we're using s26 gold toddler as a supplemental drink for the wee man, also really good, about $18-$20 a tin at your local new world.

We used S26 Gold - but gave baby the runs.

Now using Karicare (check the age you need).

Thanks for your replies, much appreciated....he will be 23 months by the time they visit NZ so shouldn't be much of a problem if she has to change his formula to another product.
