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!

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
