    Expensive Japanese formula - any obvious benefits for the babies?

    Anybody tried those expensive Japanese forumla like Meji, Beanstalk etc? They are much more expensive than Enfamil, S-26...so I wish to know what's so special about them. What do they have and the others don't (the container is all in Japanese which I can't read) and which brand would you recommend?

    Thanks.

    Hi Mrs Buffy,

    Japanese formula are made to be similar to be mother's milk. I haven't tried others so I can't tell which is better but I think Japanese formula's quality is really good.
    I like Morinaga & Meiji. My 9 month had "Hagukumi(by Morinaga)" and "Hohoemi(by Meiji) until last month. Now switched to follow-up milk like "Chirumiru(by Morinaga)" and "Step(by Meiji)".

    Thanks Peach...I may give it a try when my girl turns 6 mth.
    Do you know any place that sells them cheaper than SOGO & UNY, they are so expensive.

    Mrs Buffy,

    I haven't purchased them in HK since I brought some from Japan when we moved here 3 months ago.
    But I think that a small Japanese food shop near Sheung Wan sells them less expensive than Sogo & Uny. I don't remember the shop's name and exact price but will check when I visit the place next time.

    BTW, I have 12 sticks of portable Japanese formula (10 x Hagukumi & 2 x Hohoemi). They are for babies under 8 months and my 9 month doesn't need anymore. Shall I send them to you (of course for free). If you are interested in, please send me a PM.

    hi there

    i have sent you a pm, is there any chance i could try a couple tins of that japanese formula? i'm thinking of supplementing formula while i am away with my 7mnth old, and we're both allergic to things so prefer that she tries formula of higher quality?

    Thanks in advance!
