yeah im the same as peanut...3.49 a tin here in chch..

and yeah the paed applies for the special number and you use that to order....so then you buy either 1 or 3 months at a time...so it was only 100 something for 30 tins for us.. so glad she took the bottle...

blondy Liam will only take 30 mls..so that is a good thing..lol glad he isnt the only one who has issues:(!! I'm going quite mental with people telling me to starve him:(

Def get onto your pead re the special authority number as mine took close to 2 weeks to come thru and we had gone thru 5 tins in the time. The paed gave as 2 tins and I had to ring for 2 more, then a friend gave us a tin too. Def worth following up on sonner rtaher than later.

Yeah, I get it direct from Thermo Fisher and its free delivery. Do you get it just couriered to your home or is the chemist putting a mark up on it for processing?

Just called specialist today, they seem to think theyll have a number by the end of the week - but we'll see heh.

Elfsmum: only takes 30mls at a feed?

Do they seem to take less neocate than a different formula? The most C will take is 120mls, and normally around 90mls in a feed - whereas i know people with their children of the same age on 'normal' formula who are all taking 200-250mls?

kim - it's a volume thing that comes from BF babies... they're used to drinking only as much as they need. It does change though, just slowly - Nat now guzzles back 300mL in one go

It might be partly the taste too - if it tastes half as as it smells.... you wouldn't get me drinking it!

Cooper is now sucking back at least 160ml on a small feed. Earlier on though he would only take 100ml. I think B/F babies need their tummy capacity built up.

I might give Thermo fisher a call I'd love to not have to pay so much! I am only getting it in box qty's at the moment.

Oliver has 210ML each feed, but sometimes before bed at night he will want more so i make him another 100 ML. He has it half strength tho.

Then he has another 210ML during the night and another at 5am. The only problem with this is he pees so much and I am having real problems finding a nappy that will see us through the night, thats sposies and cloth :(

I just rang Thermo Fisher /Biolab & she refered me to Nutricia who said it's $13.96 per tin. So far cheaper off the Pharmacy!

Briand Olismum: so far the only nappy that's seen us through the night is huggies - worth the extra $ rather than all the outfit and bed changes we were doing lol. Lets see if it continues being a star

I've tried huggies, even went up to the next size up to see if that worked but nah still had a wet bed and clothes to change in the morning. Last night I even tried putting 2 sposies on him, and the night before he had 2 prefolds on and still leaked. I'm kinda used to it now tho lol.

Who did you get it through KA? I didn't say where I was when I rang both Thermofisher & Nutricia. I'd be super keen to get it cheaper cause of how fast we are going through it.

KA gets it from the same place as me.

So we only pay $3.49 a tin and free delivery.

The only things I can think off and I may be completely off track with these things are:

1) Its my understanding that is funded so may depend on level of funding by your DHB?

2) Again, I think up north etc its sent to a pharmacy who dispense it to you - maybe check what you are paying for there services?

Did you call 0800 933 966? I have never been put thru to Nutricia so maybe just try to talk to someone within Thermofisher that seems to know what they are talking about.

Yep I rang that number & I asked for details on ordering neocate & they said that nutricia deals with that now & gave me their 0800 #. I tried to say but I thought you guys did it & she said no that neocate is no longer with them & I have to deal with nutricia.

I think it pays to shop around to get the best price at pharmacy's. Another one said he'd price match for me to the current pharmacy & he also said that he'd get my whole script in & hold it, not like at the moment where I get a box of 4 every week & have to order it over night.

eta - his price was dearer.

We're $6.60 a tin, and i called around about 6 places to get prices lol. But i did ask, and pharmacies aren't supposed to add anything on to the price.
A+Cs mum: all the places i called said they got it in 1 month at a time (so for us 3 boxes) and can order in the morning to get it that afternoon.

Interesting isnt it how they're all so different. Wow cant believe some is only $3 something a tin! May well be the type of funding you are given.

Well we're a bit blocked up here bother it all, but hoping things resolve themselves soon!
