Parents who are considering switching formulas should consider the following factors when evaluating products:
Nutrition – When evaluating a new formula product, be wary of labels. Most infant formula products contain carbohydrates, protein, and fat. It’s important to ensure the formula products you purchase have the correct amount of each so that it doesn’t cause further gastrointestinal problems. It’s also important to avoid products with added sugars and artificial sweeteners, as well as synthetic colors and flavors.
USDA certification – Ensure that any formula products you purchase are USDA certified. If a product has USDA certification, that means it has been thoroughly tested and is safe for consumption, and contains all the appropriate nutrients needed for your little one to develop.
Allergies and digestive issues – Avoid formula products that contain allergens, if applicable. If your infant is allergic to soy, for example, you might want to avoid soy-based products. If your infant is lactose intolerant, they might struggle to digest dairy products, and you might want to choose a plant-based option.
While it can be overwhelming to decide on a new formula given the wide variety of options available on the market today, it is crucial to select a formula that will mitigate the risk of gastrointestinal issues.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of the best formula products for babies with an upset stomach.
If your infant is suffering from digestive issues after receiving formula, you might want to check out these baby formula products that are specifically crafted for babies with sensitive stomachs:
Burt’s Bees Baby Organic Sensitive – Burt’s Bees’ infant formula is certified USDA organic and contains no artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, GMOs, or preservatives. It has important vitamins, including D, E, and K, and contains reduced lactose.
Mama Bear Sensitivity – If your infant is lactose intolerant or sensitive to dairy products, Mama Bear Sensitivity could be the formula for you. It contains a prebiotic known as HMO, which is produced by approximately 80 percent of all breastfeeding people. Mama Bear Sensitivity formula contains no GMOs or artificial growth hormones.
Happy Baby Organics Sensitive Infant Formula – Also certified USDA organic, Happy Baby’s sensitive baby formula contains reduced lactose, and anecdotal evidence from parents who use the product suggests that it improves bowel movements and decreases regurgitation.
Enfamil ProSobee Soy-Based Infant Formula – If your infant will not tolerate dairy, Enfamil’s soy-based infant formula could be a good fit for your newborn. It is 100 percent plant-based and contains no dairy. It is also an excellent source of vitamins, choline, and DHA.
If you are changing formulas, you might want to do so gradually to avoid further upsetting your infant’s stomach or causing additional gas.
Consider combining formulas over a period of three to five days, slowly increasing levels of the new formula while decreasing the levels of the original formula you were using.
Parents with Premature Infants Might Want to Avoid Cow’s Milk-Based Formula Products
Studies have shown that preterm infants are more likely to develop a serious gastrointestinal illness known as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after receiving cow’s milk-based baby formulas (including bovine milk formulas manufactured by Similac and Enfamil) than they are if they are only fed donor breast milk.
