Milk Formula For G6pd

It is best for you to ask your pediatrician or hematology specialist which formulas are best, if breast feeding isn't possible. I would try a milk-based formula of a well-known name brand and check ingredients for soy lecithin, soya, soy. ...Read more

Ok to start solids: It is ok to start cereal by 4-6 months, but because wheat allergy is common, rice or oatmeal is usually recommended as a first cereal. The type with added fruit and milk is ok. Continue the same infant formula until your child is close to a year old. To give variety, add a different vegetable to the feedings once a week, unless there is a reaction, like rash or vomiting or diarrhea. ...Read more

Formula, but costs $: A 1 year old baby can switch off of formula and start whole cow milk. Formula is somewhat more nutritious but is much more expensive. A baby who is a picky eater and eats little solid food, or has almost no variety in his choice of solid foods, will probably not get enough iron and vitamins from his diet. Such a baby may be better off drinking infant formula until 18 months of age. ...Read more

16-24oz: I like to limit kids in the age group to 16-24 oz/day so they will explore the other foods you will offer at this age.

At 12 months, when: You can wean to a doubled-handled, open-mouthed cup. Limit milk & milk products to 16-21 oz./day to avoid constipation & iron-deficiency anemia. If you give juice (not recommended) limit it to 4-6 oz./day. Since the same muscles used for eating & drinking are used for talking, use a "commuter cup" if you feel you need a lidded one. Sippy cups keep the tongue forward in an immature sucking position. ...Read more
