Formula For Newborn Babies


Baby formula is usually split up into two categories according to your babys age. 

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

Formula is often split up into two categories:

1. Baby or infant formula ‘From Birth’: Also often referred to as a “Starter Infant Formula” or a number or stage “1”. Starter baby formulas contain all the essential vitamins and minerals that a baby will need up until around 6 months of age – when solid foods are introduced. Once solids are introduced, your baby moves on from a single source of nutrition (breast milk or baby formula) to an increasingly diversified diet. A starter baby formula can be started from birth and can continue through to 12 months of age, or alternatively until 6 months when you can change to a follow-on formula if you wish.
2. Follow-on Formula ‘From 6 months’: Also often referred to as a number or stage “2”. A follow-on formula can be started from 6 months of age and continued until 12 months. It has a slightly different nutrient profile to a starter baby formula, as older infants have slightly different nutritional requirements and have started to receive other nutrition through solid food.
