When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

Baby Formula Feeding Concerns

Most formula fed babies will be very happy on the baby formula you first choose. However it’s important to know that not all formulas suit all babies. Below is a list of common feeding problems some baby’s may experience, however in most cases you will find these aren’t really cause for concern. However if your baby experiences any severe feeding problems from a baby formula, such as vomiting or diarrhoea, you should seek the advice of your doctor or health care nurse immediately.
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Poo Colour
  • Poo Smell
  • Colic
  • Lactose
  • Regurgitation
  • Bottle


If your baby has infrequent bowel movements, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are constipated. There can be big differences between babies when it comes to the duration between stool movements, some being daily, some being weekly. You can’t rely on your baby’s facial expression while doing a poo to conclude constipation either, this can be a very normal response. Constipation in infants is more frequently defined as passing hard, dry (like small pellets) poo.

With formula-fed babies, generally their poos are thicker and pastier and sometimes less frequent than breast-fed poo but this doesn’t mean your baby has constipation.

Your baby’s bowel motions can be affected by a number of factors, including:

  • Fluid intake
  • Introduction of solids
  • Age (as age increases the stool characteristics change)
  • Illness and infections
  • Medications

If you have any concerns about your baby’s bowel motions, it never hurts to seek the advice of your doctor or health care nurse.
