What are the examples of non soy formula milk? For g6pd

Good question.: There are milk-based, soy-base, hydrolyzed and free amino acid type formulas. Breast milk watching your own diet is absolutely the best and safest for your baby. It is best for you to ask your pediatrician or hematology specialist which formulas are best, if breast feeding isn't possible.

What is the best formula milk is prohibited for my 3mos old baby she is g6pd deficiency. Thanks?

Tough answer: Fresh cow's milk is safe. Do call one of the formula company in your area like mead Johnson and ask for specialized formula. No formula I know of is completely safe. Having said that all options out there like goat's milk, almond milk have their deficiencies. Sorry for this complex answer. Fava bean avoidance, extension of that would be all legume avoidance is a must. So Soy would be a general NO. ...Read more

Hi! . my baby is now 5 months old and she is g6pd. What milk formula is safe for her? .... Is cerelac flavoured wheat, banana and milk are safe for her? ..

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

Can I give my infant baby s-26 milk, he had g6pd and rhis milk contain soya bean oil?

I do not recommend: G6pd exists in different forms with different severity. Mild forms of the condition might tolerate soya bean oil where severe forms of the disease probably would not tolerate it. Given alternative formulas that would not have potential for hemolysis, I would recommend not using s-26 for your infant. ...Read more

Is it better for my baby to drink whole milk or formula?

Is it better for my baby to drink whole milk or formula?

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

Not too late: Breast feeding is superior in all ways to formula feeding, and at 4 weeks, it is still not too late to enhance lactation. Regular nursing (every 2-3 hours day and night) for 10-15 minutes on each breast should increase lactation in this demand and supply mechanism. Mother needs to stay well hydrated and as rested as possible. Fenugreek can help, and lactation consultants are invaluable. ...Read more

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
