Milk for baby (0-12 months)
1. Milk formula derived milk
The protein in milk is casein include two types and whey. At the start, it will dominate whey protein in breast milk. Whey ratio will change gradually phased feeding. In colostrum (day 1), the ratio of whey: casein is 90:10, in mature milk from 2-3 days onwards, the ratio is 60:40. And after eight months, the balance ratio is 50:50. These rates are applied to the formula with breast milk as closely targeted as possible.
Formula with whey dominant is mainly based on whey protein in milk. Milk whey-predominant amount, especially for babies under four months of age, is more digestible than the caseins.
Many casein formulae are mainly from cow’s milk. Milk casein is much cheaper just to fit appropriately with the larger 4-month-old baby. Casein is a milk protein cow should also have the ability to cause allergies for your baby.
2. Formulas are derived soy
This type differs from formulas derived from cow’s milk in two points: first, the milk without the cow milk protein and the second is it does not contain lactose. In some cases, doctors may recommend infant formula milk is derived from soybeans, as the infant child was galactose intolerance for example.
Although milk is derived from soybeans, do not contain lactose, but more research on lactose intolerance shows hydrolysate formulas derived from cow’s milk for better results.
Formula milk is derived from soybeans are produced by which way?
The nature of this type is from soy extracts. You can use from birth until later. The soybean harvest will be peeling off the outer shell. They can be used to crush grain or nutrition. Soy grains can be processed into soy flour or soy protein. Later they became sites for soy milk and formula milk. Because this is the kind of plant protein, they lack some essential amino acid (the kind that cannot be synthesized). Therefore, the soy protein supplementation alone is usually some amino acids to ensure adequate nutrition.
Pediatric colleges in Australia issued a warning each formula is derived soybean may be contaminated aluminum (used in refining stages) and phytoestrogens (substances naturally present in soy). Many research agency documents about this type of milk that does not have any side effects when drinking this milk, and use formulas derived from cow’s milk, it can change more benefits.
What are phytoestrogens?
There are some side effects to worry about your baby formula milk from soybeans, most of the phytol-estrogens due. This substance acts like a weak estrogen. Many argue that it can affect the baby’s reproductive organs. However, current evidence suggests that infant formula milk from soybeans do not have any problems at all, including the impact on the baby’s sex organs.
Soybeans and allergies
While formula derived from soybeans provides nutrients for the growth and development of the baby, there are some important factors to consider when using this type of milk. First, you choose to use this milk for families with a history of allergies; you should know 50% of children allergic to cow’s milk protein and soy protein allergy. In fact, if a child is allergic to milk and dairy products, the risk is also allergic to soy milk or goat’s milk. Formula milk derived from soy allergies cannot be prevented. Some children use this milk has a low immunity. Soy protein can cause intolerance reactions, 40% of infants cannot tolerate cow’s milk from dairy and soy. Normally, you’d use a formula for hypoallergenic infant formula as hydrolysis. So choose from soy milk to reduce the risk of allergies is inappropriate. You should keep in mind related allergic reaction and you should see your doctor for advice is the best.
Note: Formulas are derived from soy inconsistent with premature babies because babies cannot digest the ingredients in soy.
Formula milk derived from goat’s milk
Another interesting thing is the fresh goat milk is said to be close to breast milk ingredients (near does not mean the same). Therefore, many people think that goat milk has nutritional adequacy than other milk. This is not true. Formula milk derived from goat’s milk is used for the baby not to drink milk from cattle, soy milk or a family history of lactose intolerance. Special attention must add that infants should not drink goat milk because of this kind are not enough nutrients such as vitamins A, D, C, B1, B6, B12 and B9 (B9 and B12 are needed to neurodevelopmental ). Only when feeding goats over the 1-year-old baby.
May you need to change to the second phase of milk?
Yes. You should follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the appropriate age of the baby milk. With the larger baby, nutritional requirements also change. Demand for energy also varies as a hyperactive kid day. Many of the nutrients the baby needs more than the larger, except for iodine. The phase change fit milk will help the baby with enough nutrients to grow and grow up.
