We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from August 2018. This transition to new packaging will occur over a number of months. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.

There are no major changes to these products, in some instances there is a small name change or slight recipe improvement, see below for the full details.

Products purchased via the website will be delivered to customers in our old packaging until the end of October. From November, products ordered from the website will be delivered in the new packaging.

Please note, our Infant Formula packaging will not be rebranded until later in 2019.

Bellamy’s Organic. Confused about when to have your first baby? What’s the formula?

your first baby

According to an article in the Harvard Business Review, having babies is even more costly that you might think. Prospective mums who work now need to think about when they swap brain food for baby formula!

In the US at least, postponing motherhood leads to an increase in women’s earnings of 9% per year of delay, according to Amelia R. Miller of the University of Virginia. It also leads to an increase in wages of 3% and a rise in work hours of 6%, with the wage advantage being largest for college-educated women.

We don’t have statistics for Australia but it seems to make sense – the longer you’re in work the more senior you are, the more money you make. When you think about it, it’s another piece of obvious information that probably didn’t need a research grant to figure out.

What’s for sure is that if you wait around to maximize your salary, you’ll surely be gradually reducing your chances to conceive. Life’s never easy.

Now, if we had a culture where working women had nannies, like they do in Asia, this wouldn’t be a consideration at all.

I just hope Amelia Miller doesn’t leave it too late, assuming she wants children, that is.

But it is a problem. Do you leave early, when you have the stamina both for a young family and to kick start your career again or later when you have more experience of life and work, but may find it harder to leave your Double Income No Kids lifestyle behind?

And what’s best for the child in this debate?

Tell us what you think and perhaps we can get a handle on the prevailing view and feedback your thinking on a later blog.

  • Breast milk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
