Question and answer
Q: Evaluate the benefits of different types of formula that are commonly available
A: There are three different types of formula: cow?s milk-based formula hydrolysed protein formula soya-based formula It?s most likely your baby can have cow?s milk-based formula, unless there?s a health or dietary reason why she can?t. [ Read on to find out more about these types of formula milk. Cow?s milk-based formula Most baby formula milks are based on cow's milk, which is modified to
resemble breastmilk as closely as possible. Manufacturers modify cow's milk for babies by adjusting carbohydrate, protein, and fat levels and adding vitamins and minerals. There are also special types of formula manufactured for premature babies. The protein in milk can be broken down into curds (casein) and whey. The ratio of casein to whey can vary according to the type of baby formula milk. There are two main types: First-stage formula. These milks consist of mostly whey, with a casein:whey ratio of 40:60, which is about the same as breastmilk. They are suitable for your baby from birth up to about a year, and are thought to be easier to digest. Second-stage formula. These milks consist of mostly casein, with a casein:whey ratio of 80:20. They take longer to digest and are often promoted as being for hungrier babies. Nutritionally, your baby will only need first-stage formula, although you may decide to move your baby onto second-stage formula as she grows. Be cautious when changing your baby?s milk. Switching from first to second-stage milk too early can give your baby constipation. Although many milk manufacturers market their second-stage milk as suitable from birth, it?s best to wait until your baby is at least four weeks old. If your baby doesn?t seem content with the formula you first started her on, talk to your health visitor before changing formulas. When your baby?s a year old, you can move her on from first or second-stage formula to cow's milk. Cow?s milk is not recommended as a main drink for babies under the age of one because it?s low in iron and vitamin C. But you can use small amounts in cooking for your baby when she?s started solids, or on her breakfast cereal. ]
