Yesterday day I wrote a post called “Choosing the Right Type of Formula for Your Baby?” If you read this post, you will find out how overwhelming it can be to pick a formula for your child. Most parents start out with a cow’s milk based formula which is tolerated by most babies. Some babies have trouble tolerating or digesting regular cow’s milk based formula even thought the milk protein has been specially altered so that infants can easily digest it.
If your child doesn’t tolerate milk based formula don’t worry there are plenty of formula options available on the market so that your baby continues to the adequate nutrition that they need in order to thrive. However, some of these specialty formula’s available on the market require a prescription from your child’s doctor in order for you to purchase it for your baby.
