Majority of the baby formula products in the market are rich in lactose components. However, there may be reasons why your baby may not be very happy with a formula diet. Let us look at some of these here:
Your baby may be lactose intolerant
No, I am not talking about milk allergy. In the case of lactose intolerance, the baby’s body cannot absorb sugar and hence rejects it. Such lactose intolerance may be commonly seen in the case of premature infants, genetic makeup of parents (either or both being lactose intolerant), severe diarrhoea which weakened the capacity of baby to digest lactose temporarily, or a digestive disorder such as Crohn’s disease.
Symptoms of Formula Allergy
Now let us quickly go through typical symptoms of a slight formula allergy:
- Dry and itchy skin behind knees or elbows.
- Red spots or hives
- Swollen lips or mouth
- A red ring along anus which is not due to diaper
- Uncomfortable and fussy after eating
We highly recommend the following products for your baby:
- Similac pro advance baby formula
- Similac Pro sensitive baby formula
These are rich in FL Human Milk Oligosaccharide (HMO) that helps in enhancing baby’s immune system and supports healthy growth and development.
