Japanese baby formula

What baby formula have you tried, like or recommend? I breastfed my daughter but always had some formula for emergencies etc. She reacted pretty badly to the beanstalk one the daycare gave her. But I found icureo was really gentle and apparently is the closest match to breastmilk in breakdown. She had no reactions with it all. I now use the icureo follow on milk too.

    I also use Aicreo <3 I tried a few over the years with each child. I breastfed them all until about 7 months and found the Aicreo was the best match to wean them on to. Even my son who it turned out had lactose intolerance and diary allergy drank it for a while (before we realised his situation) and didn't react bad. Our paediatrician told us that in her opinion and her research it is the most like breastmilk. I have been very happy with it. My 2 year old uses the follow up milk now and loves it!

    I don't have any recommendations (my LO is on Beanstalk graduated), but my pediatrician did say to avoid the formulas that come in the cubes. She said that she's seen a lot of babies have bad reactions to the additive that they use to bind the formula into those blocks.

    I tried to only breastfeed, but it didn't work out and we supplemented with hai hai. My son never had a problem with it. He did favor it over other ones we tried.

    I have a 3 week old baby and im giving Hahaemi by Meiji. I breastfeed her its just that on her 15th day she isnt gaining weight so the doctor advised me to continue breastfeed but also give formula milk. And it seems working pretty well. She's gaining weight and not getting any bad reactions.

    We use hai hai as well and personally it's been great for us - our son is growing like a weed and always doing great at his health checks so I am not going to deviate from that for now!

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
