Q: Where is Faulding® Gold Formula made and where does the milk come from?

A: All 3 products in the Faulding® Gold Formula range are made in Gippsland, Victoria with the milk base from grass-fed Australian dairy cows. Our Faulding® Gold Formula range is one of only a few premium standard formulas made in Australia from Australian milk and sold in Australian pharmacies.

Q: How does Faulding® Gold Formula nutritionally support my child’s growing needs?

A: When it comes to nourishment for babies, breast is best. Where breastfeeding is not possible infant formula is a suitable alternative. Our products contain milk derived whey and casein protein, along with essential vitamins and minerals to help provide your child with the nourishment they require for their growing bodies.

Faulding® Gold Infant Formula and Faulding® Gold Follow On Formula have been specifically formulated to nourish the growing needs of babies between 0-12 months. Between 12 months and 3 years your child can transition to Faulding® Gold Toddler Milk Drink – a formulation designed to meet the growing needs as your child transitions through the milestones of toddlerhood.

A: The main difference is that in Stage 2 the protein levels are increased and the fat levels are decreased. In addition, there is also more calcium in Stage 2 compared to Stage 1. These changes are to support the requirements of your growing baby.

Q: How do I transition from Stage 1 into Stage 2?

A: After six months, you can switch from Stage 1 to Stage 2. If your baby is fussy, has a sensitive tummy or has constipation please consult your healthcare professional for advice regarding transitioning between products.

Q: Can Faulding® Gold Formula be added to recipes and meals I make for my child such as pureed fruit and vegetables?

A: As your child is introduced to solid food from 6 months, Faulding® Gold Stages 2 and 3 can be mixed with solid foods, however this should be done in consultation with your healthcare professional.
