The variety of infant formulas

Milk is the only food for infants until they are about 1 year old. If you are not breastfeeding, you will use infant formula.

  • "Infant milk" is the name given to all types of milk for infants, of which there are currently more than 150.
  • Its composition is designed to be as close as possible to that of breast milk, so it provides all the nutrients your baby needs.
  • Infant milk is available in three age groups: 1st infant milk (between 0 and 4-6 months), follow-on milk (between 4-6 months and 1 year), and growth milk (between 1 and 3 years).

Okay so I exclusively pump/nurse but my supply is taking a dramatic dip so I have been giving her 3-4 ounces of my milk with like 1 oz of infant water and half an ounce of rice cereal and it’s been a few weeks she seems to be doing good with it just wondering if anyone else does this or is there better alternatives (trying my best to hold off on formula for now)
