What makes up a good baby formula?

2. DEMETER QUALITY

Demeter quality sets European formula apart. This is organic++ which means the farms are fully organic and the environment is being well taken care of. Watch this short video for more:

IN SUMMARY:
  • Biodynamic = Organic farming using self-sustaining farming methods throughout the entire farming system.
  • NO GMO’s
  • Composting & Water Conservation are used
  • 10% of farm is dedicated to biodiversity
  • Demeter started in 1928 in Europe and is MOST recognized brands in Europe
  • Growing healthiest, most sustainable farm possible to grow the most nutritious food!

3 SOY FREE OPTIONS

Unlike the formulas on the shelf in America, there are options of European formula that have ZERO additional soy added to their formula! Some options include Holle formulas, Lebenswert formulas, Loulouka formulas, HiPP Germany Stage One, and HiPP Dutch Stage 2 to name a few!

Why does this matter? Read our article all about the dangerous effects of soy on children.

 

4. NO SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS

Synthetic nutrients include lutein, lycopene, taurine, L-carnitine, and L-methionine. Many of these substances are toxic themselves or processed with toxic solvents.

  • These are banned in Europe, but are still commonly found in many American formulas.

 

5. EXTRA HEALTHY

PROBIOTICS
  • Supplements or enhanced foods that contain living microorganisms.
  • “Friendly” bacteria can change the bacteria balance in the body.
  • Example: HiPP formula contains Lactobacillus fermentum hereditum
PREBIOTICS
  • Supplements or foods that contain an ingredient that can’t be digested normally
  • Stimulate the growth of friendly bacteria, acting as food for the bacteria.
  • Prebiotics may help support skin health in otherwise healthy babies, according to the Pediatrics report.
  • Examples: Compounds like oligosaccharides that are found in human breast milk or infant formula
WHY ARE THEY GOOD?
  • A summary report in the journal Pediatrics in 2010 found that randomized clinical trials show probiotics are somewhat effective in supporting gastrointestinal wellness in healthy children.
  • Probiotics may help ease gastrointestinal issues and colic. For example, an Italian study reported in JAMA Pediatrics in 2014 that babies fed a probiotic supplement from birth emptied their bowels more, had less spit-up, and had less colicky crying at 3 months than those on a placebo.

Kendamil baby Formula

Highly recommend!

The best formula for your baby!

My son loves this formula! Once I switched I noticed he has less spitting up! Definitely recommend this brand

Amazing Formula

Baby loves this formula and refuses to drink any other kind.

Highly recommend!

If you are wanting to feed your baby the best formula available, My Organic Co is the way to go. I am still breastfeeding at 8 months and started supplementing shortly after I went back to work at 3 months. My little guy transitions between HIPP Combiotic and breast milk with no problem. He is healthy, 25 lbs at 8 months, and no digestive issues. I highly recommend ordering from My Organic Co, also because they deliver promptly, and the HIPP formula!

Loulouka Stage 1 👌🏽

Baby was having a hard time with formulas but it’s been smooth sailing ever since we switched. Much cleaner and less additives so much better!
