    i've always used Aptamil - not one of the most popular ones...but tested by HKG when there was a melamine scare on the mainland, and it passed. as it's not the most popular ones - it will "never" run out! :) also, supposedly it is close to breast milk...you should be fine with whatever you choose though - your baby is not used to any certain taste in terms of milk yet.

    Aptamil is good, but we also use Hipp. I actually tried all different kinds so my baby wouldn't be fussy about her formula...she was breastfed til about 7.5 months and then we switched her to formula.

    We used Aptamil while in the UK, but I think it's hard to find to HK. We bought ours at Bumps to Babes as I never saw it in our Taste. I then switched to Cow & Gate's Pepti Junior. Now for my 5.5 month year old, we use Abbott's Similac which is widely used in the United States and can be found in our market.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it is sold out.

    I used to buy Aptamil for both my little ones from any Wellcome. Didn't cause any constipation etc, as suppopsed to be similar to breastmilk. One of the popular brands in UK and its manufacturer is Milupa (German?) although HK Aptamil looks like it is licenced from Indonesia.
