Welcome to our post on the Cow and Gate Starter Pack, full of reviews and information to help you decide if its right for you and your little one.
For the first few months of your baby’s life it will get all of its nutrition from milk. For many new parents, breastfeeding, or solely breastfeeding is not an option, and so the use of formula – whether on its own or as part of a combination feeding regime – is essential.
If that applies to you then making sure that your baby is getting the very best in nutritional content will be of paramount importance to you.
Cow and Gate First Infant Milk From Newborn is a nutritionally complete whey based infant milk that is suitable from birth onwards. It can be used for combination feeding or if your baby is not being breastfed.
With all of the many things that new parents need to cope with, making life as easy as possible for yourself in the first few months really is a good idea. And things don’t get much easier than using Cow and Gate’s Ready To Feed Starter Pack.
Whether you’re out and about, or at home juggling chores, Cow and Gate’s ready-made infant milk makes feeding simple. All you have to do is pour the contents into your baby’s bottle and voila, you’re good to go.
Many reviewers have said that they use the starter pack for their baby’s night feeds to save the time and effort of traipsing to the kitchen and back to make up a bottle in the middle of the night. Others say that they always have a bottle or two of this on stand-by in the changing bag just in case.
With this starter pack you get 12 200 ml bottles which will last you quite some time, and the great thing about it is it’s also a really cost-effective way to feed your child. It costs JUST £8.40 with FREE DELIVERY, which works out at just 70p per bottle. When you compare that to other leading brands it actually works out to be quite a saving.
At 200 ml a bottle these can be used up to around four months or so, depending upon how hungry your baby is at each feed.
Finally, with most hospitals not providing milk, this starter pack makes a great addition to any hospital bag, whether you plan to breastfeed or not, as latching in the first few days can prove tricky for many newborns.
So that’s the overview, but what do mums and dads think about it?
The Cow and Gate Starter Pack averages a whopping 4.5 stars out of 5 on review and has been described as “Perfect”, “Good Value”, and “Super Handy”.
Here are some recent reviews:
“These little bottles of ready prepared baby formula are an essential item when out and about, or through the night, providing instant feed without all the faff associated with making up a feed from fresh. At 200 mL a bottle, and remaining good for about 2 hours, they are just the right size for a big feed for your newborn. We always have a pile in stock in readiness, 5 stars.”
“These little cartons are really handy for popping in the changing bag to take out with you, or for buying if you dont like the idea of using powder (we did this for the first few weeks until our baby upped his feeds). The milk looks creamier than its powdered version, our baby loves it!”
“I started my child on C&W formula. Now I use these for when we are out and about with the baby. They come in handy for instances when you can’t carry around water and a box of formula. You can give these at room temperature but I prefer heating the bottle in a bowl of water if possible.”
“Good value for money. Most hospitals now don’t provide milk so I brought this pack just in case baby doesn’t latch on to me or I have trouble producing milk. Came sealed and well wrapped. “
So there you have it! There isn’t too much more we can say about this great little starter pack. It’s a decent size and can be broken up into 12 feeds making it a versatile addition to any new parent’s arsenal. At 200 ml there is enough in each bottle to keep even the hungriest child full at feeding time in the first few months of its life. And at just 70p per bottle it will hardly break the bank. Cow and Gate is a leading brand with a great reputation and this ready to feed first infant milk is packed full of nutritional goodness.
Our view? Go for it.
