Why you think someone is stupid because they have asked a simple question I really dont understand

But keep up the pointless work your doing as your doing Australia proud.
Ta. My time here has not been wasted. I have discovered that my Government is letting in the droves of the useless. I shall vote for the Keep The Bastards Out party should one appear.

I find it quite staggering that you find it so amusing to be so blatantly rude. I also find it staggering that you expect someone who has just moved to another country to suddenly know every single thing about that country, with all the idiosyncracies associated with it, and if they don't then you believe them to be useless. Yours must be one of the most ignorant and arrogant views I have ever come across.

You're an embarrassment to your country and your countrymen.

Mange tout and snow peas are actually different. You can buy both in the UK if you go to the posher supermarkets Mange tout should be totally flat where as snow peas have slight peas in there. I actually took some normal peas in pods into work one day here and was shelling them and they all thought I was mad as they all said they would think they were snow peas and just eat the lot!
Also, pickled pork is not the same as gammon (not the stuff they sell around my way at least).

Anyway, back on topic...

Babyfood: Rafferty's Garden, very much like Ella's Kitchen but not the same brand. I wonder who copied who... (please don't have a fight about it though)!

Yeah, but Milupa is owned by Nutricia now. I read it in a nursing mag (I'm not a health nurse, but trying to work out why all the health nurses have been told to say "don't feed her formula"). Anyway, it's prob. a moot point as the composition might have differed.

I didn't get on with Karicare at all and am finding that bub really likes S26, which is made by the same people who make SMA (and which the UK health nurse told me was the worst formula you could give your kid!!)

The sweet shop at the back of the food court in Myers in Sydney sell the real thing, I promise you. Same thing with the Treats from Home shop over the road from Myers. And if you're ever in South Coast, NSW - they sell it in the Berry Sweet Shop too, along with Bisto, Marmite, After Eight Mints, Munchies, Hob Nobs and countless other British brands.

Wasn't a fan of the Aus galaxy, but the Dove stuff is the real deal - though as has been observed, it's only available in little cubes, not bars.

That's true too. How are you finding the health nurses over here? We have a local child health centre and they let you get on with it and weigh the bub yourself, whereas back home you practically had to hand bub over to them with all the paperwork and get told what to do NannyState style.

I think it is Karicare Gold, I emailed the Aptamil company but this was over a year ago and can't remember which it is
