Hi, I've just bought a tin of Novalac for the same reason. I couldn't find any sachets. I don't have the particular advice you're looking for as I've only just started using it (will try for first time tonight) but I just thought I'd let you know one thing- it's a thicker formula, so you definitely need a bottle with a fast flow. I'm using a Nuk First Beginnings one (I think it's called that.)
I didn't realise it was that much thicker- it's like reflux formula.
I gave my ds some this afternoon, and he seemed to like it ok, but tonight I'm going to dreamfeed him with it and see if I get a better sleep. Wish me luck!
Why don't they sell formula in sachets so we can try it out??!! They just want to trap us into buying a whole tin! Grrrr....!!!
Anyway, good luck with it!
