With the infant formula shortage in the US, there has been an increase in foreign made formulas being shipped and purchased in the US. One popular new brand on our market is an Australian brand called Aussie Bubs. Read more to learn how Aussie Bubs baby formula compares to Bobbie organic formula.
Bobbie Organic Formula
Created by two moms in 2019, Bobbie organic formula is currently the only FDA regulated, American manufactured, European style infant formula on the market.
Free of palm oil and corn syrup, Bobbie’s Kosher, non-GMO, organic infant formula offers a simple list of ingredients that awarded them the Clean Label Project Purity Award, while packing their product with the good stuff (DHA and iron). Bobbie is also certified as a Pesticide-Free product.
Bobbie was founded in 2018 by two moms who struggled to breastfeed exclusively and wanted to create an organic product they could be proud to sell in the US. Bobbie is the only European-style infant formula that’s both manufactured and sold in the US and is made in Vermont and Ohio.

Aussie Bubs Baby Formula
Aussie Bubs is the American version of the popular Australian formula Bubs. Similarly, it was developed by an Australian mother who wanted an organic infant formula for her 3 little ones.
Aussie Bubs uses quality ingredients without common additives, like palm oil and corn syrup.
Currently, Aussie Bubs produces locally sourced goat milk and cow milk based formula options for infants and toddlers. Aussie Bubs is dually certified organic by Australia’s leading organic accreditation bodies, Australia Certified Organic (ACO) and The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA).
Bobbie and Aussie Bubs have many similar qualities. Both infant formulas contain high quality, clean, non-GMO ingredients and source their lactose from organic cow’s milk.
Bobbie and Aussie Bubs are fortified with iron and DHA at very similar, slightly varying levels. Both formulas have simplified ingredients and are free from palm oil, corn syrup, and added sugars.
Both Bobbie and Aussie Bubs Stage 1 have a whey to casein (protein ratio) of 60:40. This is also the ratio that is closest to what’s found in mature breast milk. The fat blends are relatively similar, with Aussie Bubs also containing canola oil.
Bobbie has one infant formula currently on the market, it is organic and non-GMO. Aussie Bubs has a larger line of infant formulas, including goat’s milk and toddler formula options.
Aussie Bubs offers age based (stage 1 and 2) formula. Bobbie formula will meet all of your baby’s needs for their first year of life.
A notable distinction between the two formulas are the fat and protein sources. Bobbie utilizes nonfat milk as the protein source and adds additional fat to create a product similar to breast milk.
On the other hand, Aussie Bubs chooses to use whole fat milk instead. Aussie Bubs also contains canola oil to increase the content of linoleic acid
While both formulas use organic ingredients, only Bobbie organic formula is certified USDA Organic and is American made, while Aussie Bubs is Australian made.
Due to Operation Fly Formula, Aussie Bubs will only be available in the US until November 2022.
Aussie Bubs: $1.27/oz – $1.42oz
Conclusion when comparing Bobbie organic formula vs Aussie Bubs:
Aussie Bubs and Bobbie organic formula are relatively similar formulas in ingredients – the biggest difference is that Bobbie is USDA certified organic and available by subscription.
Aussie Bubs is only available for the next few months, which may be of concern if you are planning to use formula past this time period. With Bobbie, you won’t need to switch formulas where as with Aussie Bubs there are stages of formulas you will need to change into as your baby grows.
