Best Formula Milk for Baby 0-6 Months Singapore 2022

If you are looking for the best formula milk for your baby who is from 0 to 6 months old, you've come to the right place. Breastmilk is nature's perfect baby food. But if you can’t breastfeed, or if you’ve chosen not to, formula milk is the next best thing. Scientists and medical experts have spent years developing high-quality formula milks that will provide your baby with the nutrition she needs

When you’re deciding which is the best milk powder for your baby, you will need to take several factors into consideration. Think about her health and dietary needs, her age, and the cost and preparation time of different formula milks.
 
As a summary, 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.

FAQ

1. How often should I feed infant formula?
You can start by offering your baby 1 to 2 ounces of infant formula every 2 to 3 hours during their first days of life. This is if your baby is only getting infant formula and no breast milk. Give your baby more if he or she is showing signs of hunger.

Most infant formula-fed newborns will feed 8 to 12 times in 24 hours. Talk with your child’s doctor or nurse about how much infant formula is right for your baby. (Source)


2. How do you know if your baby needs a different formula?
- Excessive Spit Up
- Extra Fussiness Following Feedings
- Bloody Stool
- Severe Constipation
- Allergy Symptoms. They can show symptoms either immediately following feeding or up to 10 days later. For instance: eczema or skin rashes, loose stools (which may contain blood), vomiting or gagging, refusing bottles, wheezing, swelling, hives.


3. What formula is good for constipation and gas?

a. Protein Hydrolysate Formula
In all standard formulations, the protein is not processed at all. They’re exactly the same size as when they first came from the cow which may cause constipation in some babies.

Protein hydrolysate formulas are meant for babies who don't tolerate cow's milk or soy-based formulas.

This type of formula are nutritionally the same as standard formula milk, but it contains protein that's been broken down (hydrolyzed) — partially or extensively — into smaller sizes than are those in cow's milk.


b. A2 Milk Formula 
Researchers believe that A2 is the more natural variant of beta casein. Some studies found that people who only drank milk from cows that produce A2 milk had less bloating and indigestion, leading some to believe that A2 milk is a healthier alternative to regular milk.


c. Goat Milk Formula
Goat Milk formula may be a better formula for children with constipation; this is because goat formula contains high levels of prebiotic oligosaccharides. 

Moreover, It’s possible that goat milk is easier on the stomach. This is because goat milk has fewer micro-proteins than cow milk, which makes it easier for certain people to digest. 

Parents can change their child’s formula from cow’s milk to goat’s milk, however, during the transition, your child may experience certain side effects. And if your children have just stopped breastfeeding and you choose to give them goat’s milk, best to do it under doctor’s supervision.


4. What are the causes of constipation in children?

Constipation may be caused by..
- Ignoring the urge to use the toilet
- Not eating enough fiber
- Not drinking enough fluids
- Switching to solid foods or from breast milk to formula (infants)
- Changes in situation, such as travel, starting school, or stressful events

Medical causes of constipation may include..
- Diseases of the bowel, such as those that affect the bowel muscles or nerves
- Other medical conditions that affect the bowel
- Use of certain medicines


5. What to do after your baby throws up
- Rest their stomach. Keep your baby from eating or drinking for 30 to 60 minutes after vomiting so that their stomach has time to recover.

- Give them fluids. after 3o minutes, start by giving your baby small amounts (0.5 oz or less) of fluid every 5 to 10 minutes. If your baby vomits the fluid out, wait another 30 minutes. Then start again with small amounts of fluid every 5 to 10 minutes. Use water, breast milk or a clear, noncarbonated liquid.

- Medicines. If your child has a fever, ask your pediatrician for the appropriate medication.


6. Difference between Newborn vs Infant vs Toddler Formula

a. Difference Between Infant Formula and Stage 1 Formula Milk
- Infant formula resembles breast milk more

- Infant formula's only form of carbohydrate is lactose 
- Stage 1 formula contains starch in addition to lactose

- Infant formula is usually watery, has less protein content, and is easier for babies to digest
- Stage 1 formula is creamier than infant milk and will keep your baby full longer

- Both formulas can be used from birth onwards.
- Both formulas can be used until the baby stops bottle feeding.


b. Difference Between Stage 1 and Stage 2 Formula Milk

- Stage 1 and Stage 2 formula milk have similar nutrients. The main difference is the ratio of casein and whey proteins, which are both derived from milk.

- Stage 1 formulas are whey dominant just like breast milk which has a whey to casein ratio of about 60:40. Whey digests quickly compared to casein.

Stage 2 formulas are similar to Stage 1 formulas but has more casein, with a whey to casein ratio of 20:80. Casein digests slower, keeping babies full for longer.

- Stage 2 formulas are often creamier than Stage 1 formula and has more energy, making it more satiating for babies older than 6 months.

Stage 2 formula is mainly appropriate when your child starts eating baby food. It can be used to supplement baby food if your baby is still hungry after drinking Stage 1 milk. 

- Stage 2 formula can be used starting from month 7 (earliest) until the baby stops bottle feeding. 


c. Difference Between Stage 2 and Stage 3 / Stage 4 Formula Milk

- Stage 3 formula usually has more starch and energy contents than Stage 2 formula, making babies full for longer.

- Stage 3 formula is usually not as micro and macronutrient dense as Stage 1 or Stage 2 formula milk, as it is considered as a weaning formula.


About Stage 3 Formula Milk
Stage 3 formula is appropriate for toddlers 12 months or older. 

It shouldn't be used as a substitute for a healthy diet with fruits, vegetables, and proteins. This formula milk should be a part of your baby's diet, and shouldn't replace solid foods.

It may not be necessary for toddlers who are already eating a lot of healthy foods. However, if the child cannot consume enough normal food, stage 3 formula could be useful. 

As always, consult a child specialist for specific nutrition advice.
