Switching to Formula Milk ? 8 Formula Milk brands Moms love

Breastfeeding is, no doubt, the best formula for a newborn child.


But, you might face a situation where you have no option but to switch to formula milk. Irrespective of why, which and at what point you switch to formula milk, there is ONE rule you must swear by – choose a formula brand that has all the nutritive ingredients and suits your baby – no vomiting, stomach aches, and gassy stomachs. Each infant is different and what worked for one baby may necessarily not work for yours.


Usually, formula comes in three basic forms:

  • Ready-to-use formula is the most convenient type of formula. It’s rich and thick, and you don’t need to add any water to it before feeding. It’s less likely to constipate babies than powder formula.
  • Concentrated liquid formula, which you pour from a container, you’ll need to mix a little bit of water to it before you give it to your baby.
  • Powdered form: This is the most common type of baby formula available in India and comes in a powdered format with a little scoop. Needs to be mixed well with water before you can feed it to your baby.


#MOMMYHACK : Wondering how much formula to feed your baby, a quick suggestion is to calculate it as per age in months + 1 Oz. For example: If you baby us two months old, then you can give an average of 3 ounces of milk.


We asked mom’s around on what worked for them and here are their recommendations of formula milk that are iron-fortified, contain essential fatty acids like ARA and DHA and don’t cause colic.
