    First lets get the bad out there then I can spend more time on the good!1.) It is a bit harder to mix than most other formulas but it's not that much worse really. The best method for mixing is to stir with either a spoon or a formula stirrer. Don't shake or you will get a foam on top. I usually make 28 oz batches and keep it in the fridge. This is a whole days worth of formula. I just gently shake the container before pouring into the bottle. This pretty much eliminates any foam or clump issues.2.) No scoop. I don't think it's really a big deal especially if you mix it in a larger batch like I do. I will help you out a bit though. I did a test on the Similac scoop and found that it is exactly the amount you need to make 2 ounces of formula. So the Similac scoop will work in this just the same as it does in the Similac formula. One scoop for each 2 ounces of water. Problem solved!Try to remember that they aren't skimping on money or trying to make your life harder by not providing a scoop. They are simply trying to avoid providing something that will leach chemicals into your baby's formula. We should be saying thanks instead of whining about it.OK not too much cons really huh?! So that must mean the pros are great. You're right!First this formula is totally organic, how awesome is that! It's priced very well for what it is. Thanks to no advertising. Second, there is no high fructose corn syrup or sugar. Do you know how disappointed I was when I went to the store to find a formula to supplement while I waited for this milk to arrive. Every dang one had 'corn syrup solids' within the first 2 to 3 ingredients. Some had it as the first ingredient. How horrible. Thirdly, my son was one of those babies who didn't do well with formula. We had non-stop gas and spit up issues and we tried several formulas. Upon strong urging I tried this formula and was amazed at how well he did on it. It did take about 48 hours for the whole spit-up issue to resolve itself but I did notice right away that the amount of spit up was less. His gas issue also resolved itself within that 48 hours too. The first thing you'll notice is the smell of this formula and the rich texture of the powder. It's so creamy and it smells good. I hadn't realized how nasty formulas smelled until that day that I had to supplement (I used enfamil premium that day) when I was waiting to get the shipment for this formula. They are horrible. He refused to drink that formula too because of the taste. He took one sip and gagged and threw the bottle down. I had to keep him full by baby food and apple juice since he refused the formula. The biggest smell difference is in the soy formula vs. other soy formulas. The smell and taste is absolutely amazing. It's almost a bit vanilla. It's just amazing. So if your baby is a soy drinker you'll be shocked when you open the Baby's Only soy and get a whiff. It smells delicious!My son's pediatrician had never heard of this formula so I brought her in a can and a printout so she could keep it for use later if she needed. When she say the label she smiled, when she opened the can she looked very curious, and when she felt the powder she looked amazed! She started raving about how great this is and how she couldn't believe she had never heard of it. She took all the info off of the can and got the website info from me so she could contact the company to see about getting pamphlets or samples in her office for babies that have formula issues or for mom's that are having trouble breastfeeding but don't want to use formula. She absolutely LOVED this formula and gave me a big pat on the back for having found it. I love this formula and will only use this formula for any children I have in the future. I highly recommend you give this a try. If you are skeptical. Just call or email the company and tell them that you would like to try the formula but you'd like a sample. They were really nice to me when I switched from the soy to the dairy. I just emailed them told them I was thinking of switching to soy and that I needed to try it for a full day to see if it really was going to work out. I told them how many ounces my son drank in 24 hours and they sent me enough packets (each makes 4 oz of formula) to make it 24 hours. This was free [...]. Truly a wonderful company. [...] And you can purchase a 6 can case from diapers.com for just under [...] [...]

    I used the product daily for 2 weeks and my daughter, 6 weeks old, developed terrible constipation. I had to give her prune juice in order to make her go. No improvement until I switched formulas. I am disappointed as I wanted to use an organic DHA alternative formula and there is nothing else out there.

      Comments about Baby's Only Organic Toddler Formula Powder, Dairy Based, 12.7 oz:

      I am also one of those moms that research things that tell me "Ours is the best!" I am very skeptical and don't believe everything I've been told. So when I read how this formula is processed, I realized that this formula is truly organic. It smells good and baby girl likes it too so that's a plus! One thing I don't understand though, and maybe I am doing it wrong, but when I put it in the water and shake it up - it's very foamy! It seems like I've lost an ounce to foam. Am I doing it wrong?? Otherwise it's amazing and I am so glad it's organic.

              This is the best formula on the market hands down. I conduct extensive research on everything that I feed my family which is why I can make that statement. The ingredients are much better then most formulas. My baby started getting constipated so I add UDO's infant probiotics twice a day and he has not had any problems since. I would rather add the probiotics to this healthy formula then switch him to another brand with poor ingredients.

                    I would give it a zero if I could. Please do not give this to your child. I have been giving it to my 9 month old for 4 months now. Look into the formula history and the non-bias studies showing that there is arsenic in the Organic Brown Rice Syrup. Please do your research and do NOT give your little one this formula. We as parents go out and research and try to provide the very best for our children and this company is okay with the amount of arsenic that is in their formula. I am not okay with that...there should be NO pesticides in the formula. Shame on YOU Nature's One Shame on YOU. Please do not be deceived like I was.

                      This is great formula. I breastfed my baby until 9 months old. Toward the end, I started to give my baby some formula so she can get used to it. I tried Similac Advance (which she had when she was a younger) and she didn't like it. After searching, I came across this formula and wala...my baby loves it... it also does not smell nasty. It actually smell like milk. Plus this formula does not contain processed DHA and ARA like other brand name formulas. Those big companies described how DHA and ARA are processed "The oil is then separated from the dried biomass by hexane extraction and centrifugation and/or filtration, followed by winterization. The hexane phase undergoes additional centrifugation/filtration to remove solids then the winterized oil is heated and treated with acid. Subsequently, the oil is treated with caustic, centrifuged, bleached and deodorized."

                      I am not an expert in food processing, but this does not sound good to me. Baby's only compnay also sell DHA and ARA, Probiotic suppliment separatly.

                      I started having trouble producing breastmilk, so I started mixing this half and half. When you mix it with breastmilk, the foaminess isn't a problem, but when it mix it without adding any breastmilk, it is quite foamy. That is the only con to this stuff. I mix it up ahead of time and leave it in the fridge, and the foam eventually dissolves. I love that it uses Brown Rice Syrup (easily digestable) versus high-fructose corn syrup like other brands use. No constipation troubles. [...]

                      The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of how horrible the constipation in my son was because of this formula. This is the ONLY true organic formula that does NOT contain corn syrup (sugar). This formula uses brown rice syrup instead of corn syrup, does not use hexane, uses organic milk, and does not wash it's ingredients with bleach (like most other formulas, even organic ones, do). I REALLY wanted this formula to work for my son, it's seriously the best one on the market, and I was so disappointed when the constipation did not go away. I even gave him prune juice to try to offset the digestive problems caused by the formula. Some other reviews do not complain of constipation issues, so please give this a try. It is amazing formula, mixes well, and smells like REAL food- not like chemicals. Give it a try!!!!

                      We did the research before our son arrived home 4+ years ago and found this product to be best suited for our family. Our son thrived on it without issue or complaint. We are now using this formula for our daughter and are equally as happy with it. It is STILL the only organic formula on the market completely sourced from the US and made without HFCS. The cans are free of the nasty chemicals and additives used in the manufacture of other formula containers.
