Breastfeeding and Supplementing with Infant Formula
Breastfeeding moms often wonder if it is acceptable to supplement a breastfed baby's diet with infant formula. The answer is yes. Some moms turn to supplementation when they return to work; other moms may experience difficulty pumping or producing enough milk as their infants grow older. In many instances, moms simply do not want to give up nursing their babies entirely. This also gives family members, friends, babysitters, and other caregivers an opportunity to occasionally bottle feed.
As you are aware, breastfeeding is recommended for infant feeding by healthcare professionals and leading organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics. Infant formula is the only safe alternative to mother’s milk that provides a sole source of nutrition for healthy growth and development.
New Parent’s Choice™ Supplementation Infant Formula is specially designed for breastfeeding moms who choose to introduce formula. Parent's Choice™ Supplementation Formula provides complete nutrition for your baby’s first year and can be used interchangeably with breast milk.
Supplementation Features Ingredients for Brain and Eye Development
Our Supplementation Infant Formula features a blend of nutrients that support your baby's growth and development from birth to 12 months of age. These nutrients are found in mother’s milk:
- DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid fat that helps support mental and visual development
- Lutein, an antioxidant found in the eye
- Vitamin E
Parent's Choice™ Supplementation also features prebiotics which may support your baby's immune system and digestive health. Supplementation is also formulated with antioxidant vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, C, E, and Zinc for immune support.
