All try to be: If considering a formula, the primary difference in types is the source of protein, (cow milk vs soy bean) and type of sugar (lactose vs non-lactose).

Which is better soy based or cow milk infant formula?

Which is better soy based or cow milk infant formula?

Depends on situation: Some folks prefer the bovine protein as more human like & there is some question whether the soy lives up to its quality. That said, most kids would never have any appreciable difference in growth/development either way. The exception comes if a kid is intolerant to one. If so, the other product or a specialty formula like alumentum would be less likely to cause GI symptoms. ...Read more

My baby has 5 months, can he drinks goat milk?

My baby has 5 months, can he drinks goat milk?

Not a good idea: Gaots milk is designed for goats. It is not balanced nutrition for a human infant and is specifically deficient in folate (folic acid).Formulas are balanced and several are available to meat the specific needs of any kid. I encourage people to wait until after age 1 yr to offer goats milk. ...Read more

My baby just turned 1. Which is better 4 her, stick to baby formula or switch her 2 cow's milk? Which one is healthier? Thank you ☺

My baby just turned 1. Which is better 4 her, stick to baby formula or switch her 2 cow's milk? Which one is healthier? Thank you ☺

Depends: By the time a kid turns one, most have incorporated a variety of semisolid foods. These can easily make up for some of the special features of breast milk or formula. Regular milk, rather than low fat/skim is needed because baby uses the added fat to support brain growth which slows after 2. The extra in formula if not used end up in her pee. ...Read more

I'm a brand new mom and my milk is drying up, but I don't want to give my baby formula. What can I do?

I'm a brand new mom and my milk is drying up, but I don't want to give my baby formula. What can I do?

Pump/feed often: Breastmilk supply does its best to keep up with demand so if you think your milk production is falling a little short increase the demand. A couple times a day pump after your baby nurses. Stimulating your breasts when they're empty tells your body "the baby finished all the milk and is still hungry - I better make more". And remember to rest when you can, eat well, and stay hydrated. ...Read more

My baby brother is 3 weeks old and refusing breast milk, is it okay to start using baby formula in a bottle?

My baby brother is 3 weeks old and refusing breast milk, is it okay to start using baby formula in a bottle?

INFANT FEEDING: I see mom is taking propranolol, carbamezipine and propylthiouracil. All these are l-2 drugs, means she can breastfeed without adverse effects to the baby. If baby refuses to nurse, mom can pump the milk with breast pump and feed baby in the bottle. If enough milk is not there, she can supplement with formula after breast milk. Best advise: talk to the pediatrician. ...Read more

What is cows milk protein allergy? What foods to avoid? What's best baby formula to use he also has silent reflux on ranitidine and domperidone

Any cow milk product: Cow's milk is present in most cheeses, yoghurt, cream, butter and hence virtually all dairy. You must read the labels to know for sure. Soy based formulas are the most common alternatives. Your pediatrician should help you select a formula that is milk-free. It may be possible later in childhood to introduce sheep and goat milk products but wait for your pediatrician to give the ok. ...Read more

I had birth on may 5/2014, and till now I didn't have my menstrual cycle, and I'm feeding my baby formula milk not from my breast, so is this normal?

I had birth on may 5/2014, and till now I didn't have my menstrual cycle, and I'm feeding my baby formula milk not from my breast, so is this normal?

Not normal: Usually periods resume within 8 weeks of having a baby if you never breastfed. I I would do a pregnancy test and see your doctor for further evaluation. If you took Clomid (clomiphene) in order to get pregnant, you're probably not ovulating and therefore not getting periods. If this is the case, then you should be on hormonal medication to regulate cycles when nor trying to get pregnant. ...Read more
