Being a new mom comes with a lot of decisions and there is no right way to go about things. We can be prepared with a list, with everything that we need, pre-decide if we want to breastfeed or not – but every mom has a different journey and that journey comes with many choices.
Similarly, if you opt/ or have to feed your child formula – we are spoilt with choice and it is very hard to know which one is right for your child.
How to choose the right Formula?
- The best formula is the one your paediatrician recommends and the one your child accepts. All formulas are regulated by the FDA and have to meet the basic nutrition requirements.
- The formula is designed to mimic breastmilk but has different ingredients in it as well.
- There are 3 main types of formula – Cow milk, Soy formula as a vegan option and specialized formula that provides sustenance for children who have particular needs and allergies.
