  • Trusted Milk Brands in the Philippines for Babies
  • All mothers want only the best for their babies; from clothes they wear, toys they play with to the milk brand that’s safe and nutritious for them. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible; unfortunately, breastfeeding may not be possible for all women. For many, the decision to breastfeed or formula feed is based on their comfort level, lifestyle, and specific medical situations.

    For mothers who are unable to breastfeed or who decide not to, infant formula is a healthy alternative. Growing up milks are formulated to meet nutrition needs of healthy young children older than 1 year and should not be fed to infants. Here’s a list of nourishing and safe infant formula brands that you can consider for your baby’s daily nutritious supplement. Most of these milk brands can be found in most leading supermarkets, drugstores, and groceries nationwide.

    EnfamiL A+ One since I started feeding my baby a formula milk. It’s the closest formula milk to breastmilk. May highest DHA for brain development. There’s an ingredient here which softens the stool kaya Hindi sya hirap magpoop. Twice a day pa, day and night. She’s healthy and gaining weight continuously according to her age. No problem at all. Kaso pricey sya talaga , gusto ko sana magchange formula kasi nga pricey sya sa lahat compared to other formula milk but I don’t want to risk my baby’s health. Hiyang niya un eh. 😊

    I changed my baby’s formula milk from NAN optipro to Lactum. So far mas hiyang siya sa Lactum naging normal yung pupu niya at hindi naging sakitin. Ok naman din yung NAN kaso pabago bago ang pupu ng baby ko at minsan 4 days di pa napupu. At pag napupu naman super tigas ng pupu at sobrang baho. I think hiyangan lang tlaga.. But for me Lactum is the best.
