The best infant formula for babies before 6 months

What criteria to choose a milk base over another for your child if you are not breastfeeding or if you decide to stop your breastfeeding?

If your child has no problem Allergy to cow’s milk protein or lactose and it has no digestive problems, you can refer you to a “standard” milk being careful, however, some criteria before making your choice.

1st criterion: the protein content

A baby consumes large amounts of protein and the risk of becoming obese is growing high. This is according to a German study conducted on almost 1000 children under the EU program on childhood obesity. The study found that lowering the protein content of infant formulas, could reduce the risk of overweight in children.

The recommended protein intake is 10 g per day for a child until the age of 3 years. This is exactly what brings breast milk: 10 g protein per liter of milk, while the older infant formulas contained in general from 20 to 30 g per liter (ie 2-3 g per 100 ml when you look at the nutrition labeling. The content of a standard cow’s milk is 3.5 g per 100 ml. In so banish from your child’s diet until at least its 3 years.

Enormous progress has thus been made on the protein concentration of milk. The latter was revised down to as close as possible so breastmilk 1 g protein per 100 ml.

The shelves, you will find all milks containing at least 1.2 g protein per 100 ml and on average between 1.3 and 1.5 g / 100 ml.

2nd criterion: the ratio casein / soluble proteins

If quantitatively progress has been made, protein quality side there are still a few things to review! Some preparations offer proteins:

– Transformed by hydrolysis to reduce their allergenicity;

– Reformulated to increase the proportion of soluble proteins including alpha-lactalbumin, present in high concentration in human milk.

The first advice is to not get seduced by formulas that promise greater satiety through their wealth of casein, a milk protein. Indeed, as casein is a large protein, it slows the emptying of the stomach small baby, which will be certainly very “stalled”, leaving you more “quiet” between baby bottles. But be aware that more casein content is important and your baby may be constipated! Casein from cow’s milk is even suspected to favor certain autoimmune diseases. Then especially avoid these milks that are not physiologically adapted to the digestive capacity of infants. Prefer rich milk soluble proteins, closest to breast milk. Some milks so-called hypoallergenic (HA) thus seem to be the most appropriate and closest to breast milk.

The report casein / soluble protein should be as low as possible, around 1 (or less).

3rd criterion: the essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6)

Breast milk contains mostly “good fats” mono- and polyunsaturated essential for brain development and vision. A polyunsaturated fatty acid deficiency may reduce the final size of the brain of 40%!

For infant formula, the amounts of fatty acids of milk to another can be quite different. Thus, ideally would have cow- milk:

– Is cleared of saturated fats to non-hydrogenated vegetable fats providing particular linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).

– Has a ratio of omega-6 / omega-3 as low as possible (less than 8, most preferably from about 5) to the body to manufacture in good proportions of other substances that decrease the inflammatory reactions and can -be even help to prevent overweight.

Great progress has been made in the fatty acid composition of infant formulas. But qu’enrichis PUFA, their omega-6 content is often higher than that of omega-3 and unbalancing the relationship between these two families of fatty acids, essential for the proper functioning of all organs and brain development of babies.

Note that some manufacturers incorporate to milky benefits 1st age now of docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 directly assimilated by the body to promote the harmonious development of the baby’s brain.

4th criterion: the presence of lactic ferments

If you are not breastfeeding in parallel, it seems essential that the  milky formula that you will give your child is enriched with probiotics. However, this fourth criterion is not a priority since it is now probiotics probiotic capsules or powder that you can easily add your child to bottles.
