I am Maya I want to ask I have a baby aged 10 months or more What kind of formula is suitable for my child?

1 Answer:

Hi Maya,


In fact, breast milk is the best food for babies aged 0-6 months and then breastfeeding is followed by complementary foods with breastfeeding over 6 months. If due to certain conditions breast milk cannot be given, formula milk can be used as long as the baby does not show a negative reaction when drinking formula milk. But keep in mind, yes, formula milk still can't beat the benefits of breast milk.


For the selection of formula milk for ages 0-6 months, you should consult your pediatrician first. For ages above 6 months, there are several things that can be considered in choosing formula milk, namely:

Choose formula milk according to the age of the baby (usually there is formula milk for ages 6-12 months, 1-3 years, and over 3 years)
We recommend that you choose formula milk that comes from cow's milk
Choose more whey protein (whey protein to casein ratio 60:40)
Compare nutritional content between brands of formula milk (usually printed on the packaging)
For babies 10 months, do not provide milk other than formula milk for babies 6-12 months

If your child doesn't like brand A formula, you can try giving formula B, brand C, and so on until you find one that your child likes.


However, if after drinking formula your child experiences negative reactions such as diarrhea, constipation, appears stomach pain, vomiting, weakness, or a rash appears on his body, stop consuming formula milk and consult your pediatrician before continuing formula feeding.
