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

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

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

http://www.vegansociety.com/news/vegan-infant-formula.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 !

If the baby breast feeds, no issues, ensure mother has a good diet. In Punjab we traditionally give the mother pinniyan made of a mix of highly nutricious and calorific nuts, seeds and herbs. This ensure super quality mil for the baby. Problem today is bibiyan are too worries about their weight and many do not partake in this special diet anymore (which also helps the mother to recover and build up strength super fast).

Otherwise, ignore all the mainstream baby milk powders as mentioned above, they have a lot of rubbish in their and the milk is low grade, plus many babies have digetion issues with these cheap products.

Use these guys, best and most ethical on the market: http://www.hipp.co.uk/milk-feeding

If you want to go traditional, in Punjab, if a mother could not give milk, they would the baby Goat milk. This contains more anitbodies and vitamins than Gaa(n) or Maj da dhudh becase of the more varied diet of the Goat. After 6 months, they moved to Gaa(n), after a year to the super heavy stuff, Maj.


Hope this helps.

After the baby is a year, I would advice moving to this : http://organicrawmilk.co.uk/raw-organic-milk-delivery/

Your usual pasterised milk is void of nutrition and is massively paap intensive. These guys use ethical dairies where calves are left with the Cow for 6 momths (instead of instant beef burgers or worse, dumped in the bin because meat is so cheap today, it is cheaper to throw anmials away than pay for the processing costs). Plus the cows have a natural and nutritious diet, roam and eat on clean fields and live an average of 14 years as opposed to the factory farmed 4 years (which is the milk you drink).

They also use higher quality Jersey cows.

Most newborn milk contains fish now... It's been 2 years now since we used it... was a Government decision to add fish to milk.... crazy..!!!

We had to give our little one nutraprem, which was prescribed, but that contained egg.... Had nothing else to give...

Everyone knows meat is not accepted in Sikhi. Don't start these nonsense debates over and over. The idea is to climb the ladder of spirituality.

    • This is one of the stupidest posts that I have seen on here. Sikhi is not restricted to one ethnic group. The privilege that you think you are entitled to, just because 150 years ago or whatever someone in your family was amritdhari, is disgusting.   At the end of the day, you have a haircut, so whatever you think or say is meaningless. Through your actions you have renounced the Sikh religion. You can identify as whatever you want, but at the the end  of the day, you are just another stupid Punjabi jatt (who makes me embarrassed to be jatt)

    • A summary of the maharajas of Patiala. They have been traitors from the beginning, the founder of the state ala singh and his family were excommunicated by dal khalsa in the 18th century so i dont know why these people are still considered Sikhs. The founder ala singh assisted abduli during his invasions and was given the title of maharaja by abduli. he later helped the mughals and then betrayed abduli by siding with the marthas. During anglo sikh war the patiala state sided with the british and then during the early 20th century they were part of the british raj.  After the anglo sikh wars maharaja karam singh of patiala ordered his army to shoot nihung singhs on the spot.  Today amrinder is a congress leader.       This family is an enemy of the Khalsa and has always been, the very foundation of the family is linked to abduli    
    • delhi sikhs are idiots they are now asking sirsa to demand Chandni Chowk to shaheedi Chowk , I said to them the only reason people remember Chandi Chowk is through the Mahan Shahadat of gursikhs and Guru Sahib , they are too dense to realise that removing the name is also removing the marker of the history .
