SMA BABY MILK POWDER

Does anyone know where we can buy SMA Baby Milk powder (with the yellow top) anywhere on the CDS ? Our Grandson arrives next week and it would save a great deal of baggage space for his mum if we could find it here. :?

Re: Broadband On The Coast

Thanks Sid/Enrique. I was thinking about Telefonica anyway but they have a bad reputation out in he Campo. I'll ask Iberbanda but I dont think they operate in that area at the Mo.

Re: More snakes around this year?

Great Info wildside ! I've asked the locals but no one is able to recall anyone being bitten by a Montpelier, any ideas how bad the bite would be ? I know it is difficult for Montpeliers to bite humans as I'm told thier fangs are situated at the rear, having said that I wouldn't have tackled the one...

You can take it to a Garage, some of them do it all for you, there is one in Iznajar that will do it, no need for a Gestor.

Bitten by a Spider

Hi Sid The consultant was convinced that it wasn't a Tick bite as he said venom had been injected and he could understand the initial Spanish doctors assessment because of the blood blister which would indicate Tick bite. I know about the Banded Centipede and I know friends who have been stung, alth...

Bitten by a Spider

My 75 yr old Mum woke up with a bite on her arm whilst she was here 2 months ago. Bite looked like a blood blister with red swelling round the outside. Itching gradually got worse and it got bigger. Took her to local Spanish GP who said there was no doubt it was a tick bite, he gave her antibiotics,...

Dingy Sailing

Hi - Probably the reason you dont see many people out on the lake is due to the fact that you have to have a licence, and yes you guessed it ! it is extremely difficult to obtain one. The Police can impound your craft if you haven't got one. We live near to Iznajar Lake and a close friend has just b...
