The Top 10 Milk Formulas to Help Your Baby Grow
Both formula feeding and breastfeeding are valid, healthy choices for your baby. The decision to do one or the other – or a combination of both – is purely personal and depends on what’s right for your family and circumstances.
While many experts recommend breastfeeding for at least the first month or two, exclusive formula feeding – either right from the start or after a period of nursing – can also be a perfectly a healthy way to feed your baby. Many formulas are even fortified with vitamins and other nutrients that breastfed babies have to get from supplements, like vitamin D.
