New Born Baby Milk Which One To Buy?


Recommended Posts

True, but for a variety of reasons not all women are able to breastfeed.

agreed but that is only when mother is lacking nutrition i hope u have a nutritionist whom u consulted during pregnancy consult the same there are ways u can lactate start on nutritious diet much nutritious i know you already must be taking nutritious diet as u are a mother but even then

and i'd rather suggest 1 year on breast feed out of which 6months should be only breast milk not even water but it all depends on your condition i understand so dont stress ur self on anything read bani eat well and u will do good with maharaji's kirpa

Nothing but breast milk is suitable for at least 6 months and ideally much longer. See another doctor.

This sort of response is exactly why you shouldn't ask health-related questions on an open forum like this. You get responses from people which may instill guilt/anxiety in your mind about what you are doing ...and you have no idea on what their experience of the issue is..

I can't advise you on which formula milk doesn't have any egg ingredients, but I can say the following (my first child is now coming up to a year old and we looked in a lot of detail at the benefits/issues of both breast and formula feeding).

Many (if not most) women will find it difficult to rely on just breast feeding for a new born - for a host of reasons. You should try to breast feed; but if you can't then do not worry about supplementing with formula milk or eventually relying solely on formula milk.

In our case, we realised at approx. 2 weeks old, that we would (based on consultation with GP), switch to a combination of both formula and breast. At 3 months, we switched to just formula.

Not sure if you are in the UK or not but I know SMA is a popular formula milk brand here and on this link they explain which products are vegetarian but they don't mention egg/egg powder http://www.smanutrition.co.uk/sma-products/questions--605.aspx

I think it's best for you to check with your doctor and also you could try calling/emailing formula milk companies in your country and ask them to suggest suitable milk or to tell you the ingredients of their products.

Some baby milk contains omega 3 and 6 but this is not always from fish oil so it's best to double check with the companies before ruling any options out.

There is some more info here but it's aimed at vegans so it may not all apply to you http://www.vegansociety.com/lifestyle/parenting/vegan-babies-and-children/breastfeeding.aspx


Apparently some formula milk also contains lanolin-derived vitamin D and lanolin is grease from the sheep's wool so I don't know where you would draw the line, as technically lanolin is vegetarian but not vegan. If you are looking for egg-free, vegetarian milk then you may be able to find something quite easily but if you are after vegan milk which is completely free from any kind of animal derived ingredient (eg. whey/lanolin) then I think that will be a lot more difficult, if not impossible.

Here is a list of animal ingredients as sometimes we may mistakenly think something is vegetarian as it appears to be meat free but actually it may contain other animal-derived ingredients http://www.peta.org/living/vegetarian-living/animal-ingredients-list.aspx

In the end, you need to do what is best for you and your baby. Whether that is breast-feeding only, or combining breast milk with suitable formula milk. Always consult your doctor/midwife first as the health of mother and baby is the most important thing.

Cow & Gate first newborn milk with green colour code or Milupa Aptamil. If there is some intolerancy to these then go for SMA newborn.

Most people have to try around with a few brands to find the most suitable. Some babies can develop some very simple non threatening allergies such as very mild skin blotches to certain brands and they normally get better with a different one.

Khalsa Jeo,

I am not asking for medical advice I am asking for baby milk other parents use ??

Are you just wanting to have One brand name that you can stick with before you even try ??.................That would be very foolish!!

The 3 choices I gave you above are the most popular that other Sikh parents use !

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
