What is the healthiest baby formula?
I'm trying to find a baby formula that doesn't have a ton of sugar. That is all around healthier for my twins. Any suggestions?
- I would imagine they are all pretty much the same. They all have to meet specific standards. I can't imagine much difference between any of them.51
- breast milk37
- All formula's are created pretty much equal. Unless you're have to put them on a soy based formula or another special blend, there is no difference really. Check the labels, you'll see.31
- enfamil with iron20
- It's called breastmilk.. there is a reason your body produces it.29
- Breast Milk would be the best for your infant. If you are unable to breast-feed (which a lot of ppl have trouble with unfortuantely) you can use formula. Every formula has to meet a specific standard in order to even be put on store shelves. If I had to recommend a formula it would be Gerber Goodstart in the orange can or if you baby is lactose-intolerant I would recommend Gerber Goodstart Soy Plus; these formulas work very well & are also very afforable compared to other brands.
Best of luck!55
- ENFAMIL PREMIUM LIPIL is for a fact right now the closest formula to breastmilk. It beats all the other brands by far, and contains more iron and 2x's the amount of DHA for brain development than the other formula's do.02
- The sugar in formula is there because breastmilk also has a lot of natural sugars. It's not considered unhealthy. The sugar and fat content actually is necessary for the health of your baby.
Now personally I like how Good Start has whey based, since I think that helps to combat some of the problems babies have with the larger strands of protein in milk. If lactose-tolerance is an issue, soy formula is NOT recommended anymore since soy allergies are very common (soy should be used as a last resort.) Instead there are lactose-low and lactose-free formulas, and that should be tried instead. Personally, I've had pediatricians suggest to go straight to lactose-low and lactose-free formulas, no matter the brand, so that's what we've done with formula and I can't complain.
There's basic standards though, and as long as it's an FDA approved formula made in America then you can be sure that it's going to meet their nutritional needs and it's as close to breast-milk as we know how to make it at this point.
Breastfeeding wasn't an option for me either. I am continuing to express the little bit I can, and breastfeed what I can to him, but due to a physical defect I simply cannot produce enough breast-milk to keep a baby alive. It's no one's business, you didn't ask for opinions on breast-milk (the question was about formula for those brain impaired), and people need to get off their high-horse about it. But what research I've done on formula tends to make me look at Goodstart favorably, and then think all the rest are basically equal.10
