Best Baby Formulas in 2020
Yes, breastfeeding is best.
Breast milk is the best source of nutrients for newborns and infants up to 12 months old. As a group, breastfed infants have less difficulty with digestion than formula-fed infants. It is more easily digested resulting in fewer bouts of diarrhea or constipation. And it also naturally contains many of the vitamins and minerals that a newborn requires.
However, breastfeeding is not always an option.
Fortunately, it’s 2020, and there are some awesome infant formula companies offering optimal choices for feeding baby. Limited milk production, adoption, feeding difficulties, and other mechanical issues may inhibit a mother’s ability to breastfeed. Generally, we recommend ORGANIC formulas to avoid unnecessary exposure to pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. Below are some specifically recommended formulas based on your infant’s needs.
