Learn about our Infant & Follow-On Formulas direct from the Bellamy’s Organic Kitchen!

Following on from our premiere video, Ready to Serve Meals in our 7 part series last week, this week’s video release is titled Infant and Follow-On Formulas.

Have you ever wondered why we produce 2 formulas: Infant Formula from Birth to 12 months and Follow-On Formula from 6 months to 12 months? Or what the difference is between our Infant Formula and Follow-On Formula? And why organic may be a safer choice for your baby?  In this week’s clip we cover these questions.

Before we get into all that, remember that breastfeeding is best for babies for at least the first 6 months of their lives and we voluntarily comply with the World Health Organisation’s code of practice on this issue.  However, we also recognise that breastfeeding isn’t always possible for many reasons.  If breastfeeding isn’t possible, we believe the best alternative comes from an organic infant formula.

Why is organic a good choice for your baby?

Organic is a good choice for your baby because the product has been produced without the use of harmful chemicals or toxins in the organic food chain.  Babies are very delicate and their little organs are still developing so they are less able to deal with these nasties.  Exposure to pesticides and other toxins in food increases risk to babies and toddlers. These toxins can lead to allergies and immune system disorders later down the track.

What goes into our formulas?

Our formulas are Australian made and are certified organic by NASAA (National Association for Sustainable Agriculture in Australia).  Our formulas are produced WITHOUT using any synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, growth hormones or GM ingredients.  Only milk from cows which graze freely on lush certified organic dairy farms 365 days a year is used in our formulas.  Importantly, we do not source any of our ingredients from China.

How do I know which formula to choose?

All infant formulas in Australia have to comply with strict nutrition guidelines as dictated by the Australian and New Zealand Food Standards and must meet all the complete nutritional needs of babies for the first 12 or so months of their lives at least.  Our formulas meet these standards and we pride ourselves in the quality of the products we create.

Because we’re organic, our formulas are pure and simple. You’ll see they do not contain many of the additives found in some others. There are two reasons for this. First, a healthy baby’s digestive system is capable of converting the pure ingredients in our formulas to have all the nutrition they need to grow and develop. Second, many of the additions in other products do not meet the guidelines for organic integrity and cannot be used in our certified organic products.

That’s why, in our view, Bellamy’s Organic is A Pure Start to Life.

You know your baby best, before you decide to use formula you should always seek advice from your health professional.

In next week’s video clip, I’ll be showing you how to prepare a bottle of Infant Formula for your baby.

Important Notice

Thanks for reading our blog. We hope you found this information interesting.

•The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.

•Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Baby formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.

•A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.

•If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • Breast milk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
