We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from August 2018. This transition to new packaging will occur over a number of months. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.

There are no major changes to these products, in some instances there is a small name change or slight recipe improvement, see below for the full details.

Products purchased via the website will be delivered to customers in our old packaging until the end of October. From November, products ordered from the website will be delivered in the new packaging.

Please note, our Infant Formula packaging will not be rebranded until later in 2019.

Baby’s First Month: Top 20 Blogs to Read

Being a new mum is exciting, but it’s also extremely overwhelming and sometimes scary. No matter how many books you’ve read, how much time you’ve spent with nieces or nephews or how much you’ve wanted to be a mum, nothing can quite prepare you for the first month of motherhood. Being a mum is all about learning on the go, and this is the case be it your first, second or fifth child. Every baby is different, and what works for one might not work for another. You are not expected to be “Supermum” and perfectly master the art of multitasking, so don’t stress. The focus for your first month is to spend quality time with your baby getting to know each other, and the rest will slowly fall into place. Books, websites and social media pages are a fantastic way to seek advice as a mother of a new baby. We have compiled the best (but not extensive) list to support your journey.

1: The best parenting websites?

The following Australian websites offer blog articles, information from parents on topical articles and things that may help to support your journey in the first 12 months

2: The best parenting social media pages?

There are a number of different social media pages that may be useful in supporting your journey as a new parent. Ensure you join open groups which will help misinformation from being passed on. If you are unsure about conflicting advice, speak to your healthcare professional to clarify.

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
