Baby’s Only Organic Dairy Formula has been available for more than ten years and is the first organic formula in the United States. Referred to as first formula, it is scientifically formulated and meets the highest nutritional standards that have been accepted by American pediatric societies.
This formula provides a high quality organic mixture that comes from the best organic family farms. The quality of the ingredients is easily managed and measured due to the fact that this formula is manufactured within the United States.
Nature’s One believes this to be the best organic option for parents that want to move away from breastfeeding and the recommend it for toddlers one year of age and older. Many healthcare professionals recommend this formula after weening from breast milk in order to assure the continuation of development and strong growth.
No corn syrup or glucose syrup is used in Nature’s One formulas, and they do not use hexane for processing ingredients.
Baby’s Only second formula is similar to their first formula, with the addition of hexane free DHA and ARA. Some studies have suggested that DHA and ARA fortified formulas may have cognitive and neurological benefits for young children.
This is the only formula from any major manufacturer that is formulated in this manner. The DHA that is used is developed from egg yolk and not from fungus and algae, which many other formula manufactures use. This is because it is understood to be more easily digested and absorbed.
Nature’s One always recommends that breast milk is the best option for newborns and infants, and like their first formula, their Organic Dairy Formula with DHA and ARA is intended for toddlers one year and older.
Not all babies’ tummies are the same, and if you are the parent of a child who has a sensitive one, you’ll know why this lactose-free formula is offered.
Lactose intolerance can affect adults and babies alike. This product, which has recently been rebranded under the name of LactoRelief, is the same as product as the older Baby’s Only organic lactose relief toddler formula. The LactoRelief formula is the only organic milk-based formula specifically designed for children that are lactose intolerant. Some but not all of the symptoms that may occur when a lactose intolerant child ingests lactose are:
- stomach pain and cramps
- crankiness and crying
Many parents of children who have problems with lactose are forced to use a soy-based protein. This is offered as an alternative for those parents who want to or need to avoid formulas that are based on soy protein. It has received lots of praise from parents who have had problems standard cow’s milk formula. Like all other Baby’s Only formulas, the LactoRelief option is made with their same natural and organic standards.
The Nature’s One Baby’s Only brand also offers a soy-based formula that is dairy free and can be used by those families who are following a vegetarian diet. Their soy formula is made strictly from non-GMO ingredients. Not only that, but you’ll be hard pressed to find any other organic soy baby formula on the market today that does not contain corn syrup.
Just like when choosing anything for your child, you’ll want to do your due diligence. That includes checking with your family physician when deciding if a soy-based formula is the best choice for your child.
Baby’s Only formula by Nature’s One is available in the four choices reviewed above, as well as a special option that is made from Israel milk called Cholov Yisroel that is made under the strict supervision of rabbinical standards. All of the Baby’s Only organic formula choices provide natural ingredients that meet the standards of American Academy of Pediatrics. They make cow’s milk formulas for both children with and without lactose intolerance, and even have a soy-based option if that is required.
Baby’s Only takes the idea of organic ingredients seriously. Aside from the Cholov Yisroel option, all of the other formulas are certified organic by the USDA. They pride themselves on the fact that they do not use glucose syrup and that their DHA and ARA comes from hexane free processing. And if that wasn’t enough, they are competitively priced when compared to standard brands on today’s pediatric markets while still maintaining a very good reputation for both the quality of the products and their commitment to making healthy organic options for parents and children.
