How many products can I order at a time?
You can order as little as 1 can to a maximum of 3 cans every 14 days. However, we do reserve the right to adjust these limits at our discretion depending on product availability.
Can I place multiple orders within 14 days?
You can place more than one order within 14 days as long as the total quantity ordered during this time does not exceed 3 tins.
Why do you limit the amount of products I can order?
We understand how important it is to ensure product is available to our local babies and toddlers. By limiting the amount of stock people can purchase on one order, we can ensure stock is always available to our customers. The tin limits are based on what would be a reasonable amount of supply to cover the babies needs for a minimum of a fortnight period.
Can I order more cans if I have had a multiple birth?
Our Careline can assist you with this inquiry. Whilst this website cannot be used for ordering more than the set tin limit, we can still assist with your inquiry. To discuss what options we can offer, contact Careline on 0800 438 500.
How do I know if a product is in stock?
If the item on the website is able to be selected and added to your cart, you can be sure that we can supply you the product. In the unlikely event that a product is out of stock, it will be marked accordingly on the MumStore site, and you will be unable to select it for purchase.
Can I place my order by phone?
Unfortunately, no. For the security of your credit card information, we only take orders via the MumStore website.
I need assistance with my order, who can I contact?
If you'd like to speak to someone about your order, you can email us at or call us on 0800 438 500 during normal office hours (9am-5pm) AEST.
How do I know which product to choose?
If you require general nutritional advice or need advice on which product would best suit your child, please contact our Careline on 0800 438 500. Our Careline representatives are trained healthcare professionals and can give you expert advice on the products available through the MumStore.

You can be sure that the website is secure by noting the address (the site’s address will start with https:// instead of http://) and the padlock in your browser’s address bar.
How will I know if my order has been received / dispatched?
When you check out and your payment is received, you will see a confirmation page with an order number. An order confirmation email will also be sent to the email address you provided.

We deliver everywhere in New Zealand but if you live in a remote area it may take a little longer.
I made a mistake on my delivery address, what do I do?
If you have made an error on your order, you will need to contact us immediately after your order has been placed. You can email us at or call us on 0800 438 500 during normal office hours AEST and we can assist in correcting the error so long as the order has not already progressed through to picking and delivery.
I want to change my delivery address, what do I do?
Unfortunately, if your order is already in progress, we cannot change the delivery location.
What delivery charges apply?
If you purchase 3 tins in one transaction, you will not be charged a freight fee. If you purchase 1 or 2 tins in one transaction a nominal freight charge will apply per the details outlined in your order.
Do you ship outside New Zealand?
No. Products purchased on this website will only be delivered to local customers in New Zealand.
How long will my order take to arrive?
Orders will be shipped from our warehouses in Auckland via standard delivery. This can take up to 5 working days, however metro orders to the North Island of New Zealand will usually arrive within 2 working days but due to increased demand we are experiencing shipping delays that can take up to 7 days. You will receive an email with a tracking link and tracking number once we have processed your order.
Do you have an express delivery option for faster delivery?
Unfortunately, no. We are not able to offer that delivery option.
What if I'm not home when my order arrives?
The best way to ensure successful delivery is to provide the address that you frequent during the day. If you’re not home during the day, you can provide a work address for delivery. You can also authorise to leave the items unattended. Please note if you opt to leave the order unattended, Nutricia will not be responsible for any lost or stolen packages.


Who operates the MumStore?
MumStore is operated by Nutricia Australia Pty Limited. The MumStore is an online ordering site where you can purchase Aptamil and Karicare products in one location 24x7, making it easier for parents and carers to purchase our products and have it delivered to your door.
Why do you advertise “Breast is Best” on your website?
As a manufacturer of infant formula we adhere to strict industry codes of practice. In Australia we are a signatory to the Marketing in Australia of Infant Formulas: Manufacturers and Importers Agreement (The MAIF Agreement). Within the Agreement it states that when we provide informational materials, dealing with the feeding of infants, we must include clear information on the benefits and superiority of breast feeding. The Agreement is published on The Department of Health website:
The MAIF Agreement is based on the WHO International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes. As a signatory to the MAIF Agreement we must comply with the requirements set out in the code. We hope this explains our approach and the inclusion of the breast feeding message. Nutricia fully supports breast feeding as the best form of nutrition for babies, however we do understand that, for whatever reason, breast feeding may not always be an option or choice for mums. We appreciate you may have a number of questions on breast feeding and using an infant formula. In terms of making decisions regarding feeding your own child we recommend that you consult your healthcare professional.


Occasionally the website may not be able to process your order and an error message may appear. If this occurs, please note the error message and contact the MumStore team via the following methods:

Phone: 0800 438 500 within normal office hours (AEST)

I received the following error, what does this mean? " You are over our maximum quantity of 3 tins every 14 days."
This means that a purchase has been made using your details in the past 14 days and the maximum purchase limit has been reached. You will need to wait until after the 14th day to place a new order.
