We have used this for 2 of our children and found it worked wonders. Both our Sons could not settle on the basic milk or breastmilk they never seemed to be satisfied. We found this milk and it helped straight away. They slept better and seemed more content. Would recommend!
Gave to my baby once and it constipated him for two weeks. The smell that was coming from him was revolting until it eventually all got out of his system. He was only 3 months. After speaking with my health visitor she said they never ever recommend that milk. It's way too difficult to digest. It is made from a different part of the cows milk that is no good for babies. If a small baby seems constantly hungry it's because of an underlying issue. With mine the issue was a tongue tie. Get your baby checked by a professional and seek advice before giving your babies this stuff. It's awful
My baby has been hungry since birth. Never quite satisfied on just the normal milk. We've been using both this formula and the normal how and gate formula and it has definitely helped fill my baby on the days where the normal milk just isn't enough. I read that some people experience constipation when using hungier milk but this has not been an issue for us at all!
my son started on this when I had to give him top ups as well as breastfeeding because he was very hungry and I wasn't producing enough breastmilk at the start for him. the only tiny niggle I have with it is the fact that the top is plastic the bottom is cardboard and you literally have to hack the plastic off to separate them as I am very particular with recycling
My little one changed from Cow n Gate first milk to this product when she was about 6 weeks old and we’ve never looked back. She was waking up every 3/4 hours for a feed during the night leaving me and my partner exhausted. Whereas, this milk keeps your baby full for longer, after a few days she was sleeping through for at least 8/10 hours, now we get a full nights sleep every night. This product literally saved our life!
My baby has been on this milk since he was a couple of weeks old as he wanted more than what he was getting he took to this milk so well no swapping or messing around I would highly recommend this product
My baby recently started getting hungry so we decided to get the hungrier milk. It's best to give it to them before bed time and when they get up and use the regular milk throughout the day! I find that it works best! But you can do what is best for your baby. Prices vary sale don't where you get them from.
my colleagues have tested several other brands. I started with this and I stayed with it. without colic, without crying, and most importantly, without stress. fantastic milk, I recommend it to every mother. standard price as well. It is a pity that it is not sold in tin. by comparing the composition with the other one of the best milk
Kept our baby fuller for longer so she stated to sleep through.

<p>This product literally was our lifeline! We started our daughter on <a href="https://www.consobaby.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/index/?q=aptamil">Aptamil</a> which she didn’t get on with and then tried <a href="https://www.consobaby.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/index/?cat=47&q=Mamia">Mamia</a> which just didn’t seem to fill her. Fastforward 6 months and she was still not sleeping through the night. I can across this product in Asda and we decided to give it a go and never looked back! After a day our daughter was more settled, sleeping more and generally happier. Within a week she was sleeping through the night without waking for feeds every two hours. If only I had come across this product sooner. Our newborn will definitely be starting on Cow and Gate!</p>
I stupidly tried this with my first baby . Went back to stage 1. Made baby so uncomfortable and constipated . I really think cow and gate need to look at how they market and sell this . Instead of trying to just make money think about it it’s really needed . As I personally just think it’s a money making thing . It’s jusy a lot thicker and babies don’t need the milk to be any thicker just so they sleep .
I bought this for my son when he was a couple of weeks old as the other Milk didn’t fill him up enough. This milk is excellent it filled him up more and he was able to digest it easily. A much more contented and less hungry baby after switching to this milk. I would highly recommend it.
Some people say their babies get constipated on this milk I certainly haven’t found that. I think unfortunately some babies struggle with digesting it more thrown other but it isn’t down to any issue with the milk. All formula is expensive but this is a reasonable price considering the other and sits by little boy.
I’ve had 2 babies and my first baby it made very constipated but my second baby it worked fine. The doctors don’t recommend this due to it being hard digest. I think it’s individual to the baby wether or not it’s good for them. It’s worth giving it a try.
I am was very disappointed with this product. I bought 'Cow & Gate infant milk for Hungrier babies' for my 8-week old (13lbs) son as he was constantly wanting to feed. I was hoping that by giving him 'Cow & Gate infant milk for Hungrier babies' that it would reduce the amount he was feeding and that he would be fuller for longer. this, however, was not the effect it had on him.
'Cow & Gate infant milk for Hungrier babies' made my son constipated for 6 days and wake up more at night as the formula was too heavy on his stomach. Not only did the formula effect him physically, but he was still feeding the same amount as when he was using 'Cow & Gate first milk'
I spoke to my health visitor about my son's constipation and she said that a lot of mums come to her after giving their babies 'Cow & Gate infant milk for Hungrier babies' because their babies were suffering from constipation.
She said that 'Cow and Gate' should put an age guideline of 4 months+ as any younger and there digestive systems aren't developed enough to handle the formula.
I wouldn't recommend or use this product again.
My little girl woke up 2-3 times a night as she was so hungry, she had slept through since she was about 2 weeks old so this was not like her. We changed her onto this and she sleeps through again, she still feed between 4-5 hours during the day but at night time she’s full up and sleeps all night! Happy, rested baby, mummy and daddy :)
I have used this milk on all 4 of my children as they were a hungrier babies, all my babies where settled almost straight away. Easy to prepare and same price as the 1st stage milk, this milk is thicker so I had to buy the number 2 teats for my bottles.
Definitely helps fill a hungry baby up as its thicker milk
The milks thicker then the usual milk so can cause some babies to have constipation
Easy to digest
Easy to prepare
This has worked wonders for my son I found him to be a hungry baby at about a week old so I deciced to give this a go & it definitly does do its job no more tears after an empty bottle, have recommended this & will continue to do so !!
I used sma hungry baby, and my baby was fine on it, but I thought I would be clever and change bubs milk to cow and gate hungry baby as its cheaper and you get more than the usual milk. Since changing my bubs has had a rubbish tummy, you can hear it gurgling, also she has never had an explosion nappy in her 12 weeks of life... She had the worst nappy explosion while she was in her jumperoo and it was all over my carpet. She's not settled easily, had very runny poops and I thought it might just be getting used to is but persevered for 5 days and went back to sma and within 2 days she was back to how she was before. Not happy with the milk at all, gave the rest to a friend. Sma hungry is thicker and better.
I have recently changed my little boys milk to cow & gate he loves it much thicker than Aptamil and easier to digest. This milk also helps my sons stomach as the other milk just made him throw up after ever feed and made him constipated.
Downside would be is it’s expensive.
Was on first how and gate but little man was drinking loads and always hungry so went over to this one and my son loves it 6 oz and he full up for at least 4/5 hours, only problem Is its bungs him up a little bit I think bit not 100% it is the milk, my little monkey growing nicely on this milk.
I currently have my little boy on this baby formula an since he's been on it he has been so much more content and seems a lot fuller with this product an he has s gaining weigh so seems to be satisfying him
If your bottlefed baby needs more food than can be provided naturally but it's still too early to introduce solid foods, Cow & Gate infant milk for hungrier babies may be the solution.
It's formulated with a different balance of milk protein and is a nutritionally complete breastmilk substitute for bottlefed babies containing: - Nucleotides - Oligosaccharides - Long Chain Polyunsaturates
It can be used either for combination feeding or if baby is not being breastfed at all.
