Infant Formula - Baby food - Warsaw

Just arrived in central Warsaw. Our luggage and stroller went missing. The baby ate all the emergency supplies of formula milk.

Does anyone know where there is a large selection of baby formula? Specific names of stores.

Ideally, would like to get Nestle Good Start in cans or Hipp. I would love to find something in can (or powder with simple instuctions of mixing)

I went to SMYK food store, various medium grocery stores, nothing really for a 13 month old. I bought Bebiko Jonior 3, but our baby will not eat it (infact will vomit).

Please help.
Thanks,
Kiki

Why not just use whole milk (full fat), just as good if not better, I’m sure the baby is on solids now so formula isn’t essential as he/she is getting nutrients from that.

But if you really do need it try Tesco, they're an English food chain and they probably have a store in Warsaw - they'd probably have Cow and Gate

From where you are, Złote Tarasy Mall are a short walk away(South-West of Pałac Kultury). You need a supermarket; there is a Carrefour there, Level -1.

not exactly sure with Warsaw but i have travelled Poland extensivley and have a small child, baby formula is easy to buy in most grocery stores bigger than corner shops. We have always used Nan. Biedronka is a very common shop and have a decent range of formulas.

Nice, why dont you try and tell somebody else what they should feed their baby a bit more WTF.

A baby on solids at 13 months??? what kind of childrens books have you been reading?

Children's Books? How about these following MAYO CLINIC recommendations:

Most babies are ready for solid foods between ages 4 months and 6 months.

Looking at the obesity rates in the US and UK I'm not so sure the baby forumlas are such a great idea. They cdertainly save time, but the cost eventually catches up with the reality, as toddlers need equivalent of fabric used to manufacture a parachute just to make underpants for one of them.

Yes, many formulas are made in 'child-safe' China.

nothing wrong with solids at 13 months. food all mashed up and spoon fed.

Find an Apteka (chemist's/ drug store) for baby food. you might even find one that's open 24hrs

kids should eat healthy, not fat... but whole milk is better than non fat for kids...
and yes, you can start introduce other foods beside wacky formula to the 13th month old baby... ask a doctor...

breast feeding is the best for a kid and for his mum... but some women can't breast feed for many reasons, so they are forced to use formula...

funny thing is that many American mums don't want to breast feed, because of lazyness, they think they get fat (actually breast feeding helps women lose after baby weight), or they can't drink alcohol...

so use your boobs new mums! :)

Sure, some mothers are afraid they'll get fat and others are afraid their boobs will flop to their knees. This isn't the REAL reason that American mother's are quick to reach for a can of formula and bottle. It's because the medical community and their research started pushing formula as "best" for baby. In fact unlike today, you didn't receive the passive aggressive attitude about breast feeding you were told to formula feed. Babies were kept away from their mothers post birth for periods of time as the "norm". There have been huge pushes in the breast is best campaign in America. Sure there are many women who can not breast feed and others who are only able to do it for a certain amount of time. Any breast is better than nothing at all IMO, but when that is no longer an option formula is meant to replace. Providing the HIGH Caloric diet that infants and small children do require for their brains and eyes to develop correctly.

Babies up to 2 need a HIGH fat content milk based. Yes, you can switch to whole milk at 1 years old as is the norm in the States, but many mothers TODAY are choosing to nurse longer or provide stage 2 formula as a supplement to an infants dietary needs. A infants/small body metabolism is super fast so even though they're consuming full fat products (as they should be) they're body is growing so quickly they need it.

As for the OP I'm sorry you're going through this. Unfortunately you should have probably mixed the emergency formula with a newer product to gradually wean the baby onto the new product. Most grocery stores I've been too have a large selection of formulas but I've never given much attention to what is what as our son was four when we arrived.
