    You might be able to find aptamil at the Bumps 2 babes shop...the Aptamil that is off the shelves was manufactured in Indonesia, but I believe the one at B2B is not (different packaging and all) and still being sold ( different distributor). We had the same problem as our baby was on aptamil before they stopped selling it in HK...we now use Japanese formula....tried cow and gate as it is produced from the same factory as aptamil but my baby developed a rash...

    the aptamil they sell at bumps to babes and from babycentral.com.hk is the imported one from the UK and manufactured in Europe. The one sold at the local supermarkets are manufactured in Malaysia and is different from the UK/Europe manufactured one.

    We were using Aptamil when we moved from London to HK. But found it hard to find and I wasn't about to track it down every time so we switched to Cow & Gate's Pepti Junior which my HK pediatrician recommended. It was a smooth transition - no problems.

    Baby Central (babycentral.com.hk) has Aptamil in stock and they do home deliveries. They sometimes run out of stock but will email you when back in stock. Good luck!

    Our baby is on Nutrilon which is made in Dutch by the same manufacturer. Sold at B&M. They have home delivery.
