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.

Transitioning Between Different Milk Feeding Options

Whether you’re moving from breastfeeding to formula feeding, or changing from one formula to another, it’s important to keep your eye out for signs of intolerance. Whenever you change from one feeding option to another it’s important to give your baby some time to adapt to the new feed. This can be up to 2 weeks. A baby may better adapt when changes in feeding are introduced gradually.  Alternating between the old and new feeds may ease the transition.

In some cases you may find that your baby does not tolerate the new feed at all and you may need to try a different formula. It’s important to know that not all formulas suit all babies, and some may even try a number of different formulas before finding one that is satisfactory for them.

The most common change parents see when changing feeds is a change in their baby’s bowel habits, this may be the smell, colour, frequency, texture, or all of the above!  A change in their bowel movements however, may not necessarily be related to feeding, 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 your baby experiences any severe side effects from changing the feed type, such as vomiting or diarrhoea, you should seek the advice of your doctor or health care nurse.
