    Where do you buy your milk formula??

    I have always bought mine from the same drug store near my place for years.
    I was just wondering is it safe? Could the milk powder be 'fake'!
    My son has had it for 4 years already and it might be too late to think about this now but it just sprang to mind. HE has never had problems with his milk and is growing normally. Anyone else?

    I have been buying formula milk from drug stores as well as they tend to be cheaper than buying from Mannings or Watsons... I too was worried that the milk may be fake, so checked the whole tin for mis-spelt words etc.. didnt find any, and so far, havent had any problems, and my daughter is growing healthily. Which formula are you using?

    Yeah, I checked for mispelling too.
    I am using Progress, think that's what it is called. The baby formaula was S26, now we use the follow up formula which i think is call Progress.

    My 2 daughters are also drinking Wyeth's formula since their birth. But I bot those milk powder from Mannings instead of from drug stores to avoid those "faked" ones. For diapers, I don't mind to choose from the drug stores I used to go.

    Just wanted to add that if you see a seriel number on the base of the can of milk then it's fine.
