We love to share insight and good parent info when it comes to anything and everything about organic baby formula.

This post share is from the widely respected blog/website The Every Mom and we hope you find some helpful tips to choose the organic formula that's right for your baby. 

The choice to formula-feed your child or breast feed is yours, but it is sometimes out of your control. What matters, though, is feeding your baby the nutrition they need to thrive in their first year of life and thereafter. Formula is a great option to feed your baby and there are many types to choose from, including organic formula. In fact, organic formula has many nutritional benefits for your baby so you can feel confident that your baby will thrive. And even though our country has undergone a formula supply crisis there has been much improvement as formulas continue to be restocked online and at your local stores.

When I was a first-time mom, I remember standing in the grocery aisle with a fussy baby in one hand while I read formula label after label trying to find the right one that would best suit my baby’s needs and not cost half of our paycheck. Formulas have all sorts of labels from organic, non-GMO, grass-fed, iron-fortified, dairy-free, and so on. And is there a real difference between organic and non-organic besides the price tag? Parents are left to ponder what all of it means and what formula would best suit their family.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certifies that a food product is organic if the product is at least 95% organic (excluding salt and water). The USDA sets standards for growing and processing organic foods. These guidelines speak to the quality of soil, animal rearing practices, additives, and pesticide use.

Feeding your baby organic formula may provide you and your family with peace of mind when it comes to ingredients and sourcing. We are so lucky to have many options for FDA regulated organic formulas in the United States.   

Tips When Researching Formulas

Based on our research and in consultation with wellness experts, we recommend you consider the following information:

  • Look for a formula if dairy sourced, with lactose listed as the first ingredient on the nutrition label.
  • Consider whether Non-GMO is important for you and your family.
  • When possible, opt for easy-to-digest fatty acids like sunflower, soybean, and coconut oil.
  • Be aware that palm oil is not always easily tolerated. 
  • Some formulas contain highly-processed sweeteners, such as corn syrup and glucose.

We want you and your family to feel supported with our excellent, 100% organic formula options, and since they are all regulated and approved, you can trust no matter what type of baby formula you decide, your little one will receive all the valuable nutrition they need in their first year and beyond.
