In a perfect world, the phrase ‘breast is best’ would be applicable, but then for so many new moms out there, breastfeeding is not an option. There can be various reasons as to why a mother might opt out to feed her infant. It could be as a result of an already existing medical condition, a personal choice or demands of the workplace. Parents of newborn babies are often confused when it comes to choosing from the various brands of infant formula available. The decision on the type of formula which is best for your baby should be based on your infant’s personal needs while selecting an artificial substitute for breast milk.
Lactogen: This is a drink that has been hailed for a long time as being appropriate from birth. It contains a whey dominant base. The whey casein ratio in Nestle Lactogen is 60:40 and it is closer to breast milk. Lactogen has recently been enhanced to support the digestive comfort of your little one. It contains L. reuteri, a significant probiotic, which helps in supporting the digestive system of your little one. It is formulated with better convenience and hygiene. However, there are some parents who disagree with their preference towards Lactogen. They claim that this formula is heavy and often results in indigestion in their babies.
NanPro: Another baby food product from Nestle, NanPro is globally reputed and a recognized organization in South Africa. For generations, mothers have entrusted their faith in this product along with their collection of early baby foods. The most commonly known baby milk formula available in the market, Nan, is organic and immensely helpful. As in the case of traditional baby formulas, the organic options are based on skimmed milk and fortified with the required minerals and vitamins. The important difference between the standard baby formulas found in most stores and the organic ones is that the latter is made from 99% organically produced ingredients.
NanPro is hypoallergenic. This baby milk formula has been scientifically developed for infants who have allergies. These include allergic reactions to lactose that is present in cow’s milk or wheat or gluten allergies. Families that report a high occurrence of asthma can safely choose NanPro for their babies. It is absolutely recommended as a formula that contains added probiotics which can prevent the incidence of allergies.
Research indicates that babies who are delivered by C-sections are not exposed to the bacteria which are usually passed to the child by the mother through natural birth. The absence of bacteria may lead to a dysfunctional digestive system. This is why baby formulas like NanPro that contain Bifidus and probiotics bacteria can successfully act as a substitute for the beneficial bacteria which babies born in normal delivery are naturally exposed to.
While there is nothing better than breastfeeding, a mother who has chosen to bottle feed should be confident of her decision. NanPro is a suitable option as it includes the right ingredients that help a growing baby become a healthy and cheerful toddler.
