  • 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 is still the best for me, tried nesto goods naman sya but compared to enfamil taba chingching si baby and sobrang hiyang. Kaso due to financial issues, gusto ni hubby yung milk na mejo affordable and sw to nesto. Tried reading feedbacks from other moms and now using Lactum 6-12. So far so good, pa ubos na din agad yung box and malakas na kumain ng rice si baby. 🙂

    Hi mga sis, sana may maka-help. Malaki at healthy nmana anak ko. So nestogen sya since birth kasi nung 2 years old sya nag try ako ng PEDIASURE for almost 4 months ang ganda ng effect mas lalo lumaki at tumangkad. Peor mahal kaya binalik ko sa NESTOGEN. Pero ngayon mejo okay naman kita gusto ko sana ibalik sa PEDIASURE kaso iniisip ko may lahi kami ng DIABETES eh super tamis ng PEDIASURE. May nakakaalam ba dito or na experience na mag consult sa PEDIA kung okay lang ba mag PEDIASURE ang mga bata na may history ng diabetes sa family. Baka matrigger kasi . Salamat sana may makuha ako sagot

    I’ve been using Enfamil A+ One since 2 weeks after I gave birth and my baby is doing great with it. There was never a time that he constipated and his weight gain is by far very stable. The formula just somehow makes the stomach gassy but it is no big deal since my baby can tolerate it by farting a lot without being fussy. A while ago I was thinking to try another formula just for the sake of experimenting another nice brand but after reading some comments here, I’ve decided not to, bcause my baby might be having difficulty too in switching to another taste of formula.

    For me is hiyang ni baby ko s-26 since recommended sya ng pedia nya… Sinubukan ko syang iswitch sa s-26 gold noong 6 months sya. Kaso nagpupu sya ng watery. Kaya ayun, s-26 sya until now. Hiyang n hiyang nya… Okay ang s26. medyo expensive nga lng pero ok lng un kc maganda ung formula nya

    During my child’s 11th month, I decided to mixed feed and gradually wean her from breastmilk to formula. I kept myself busy in searching for the best and closest formula to breastmilk. Understanding the nutritional values and reading testimonials, I arrived in buying Hipp Organic. It’s really a bit pricey but I impulsively bought 1 canister of 400g at PHP 700+. However, my baby didn’t like the taste and smell. She came to a point wherein she preferred to sleep without milk. So here I am again, desparately looking for other milk brands. Luckily, after reading and comparing formulas, I found Promil Organic 1-3 for my 1yr old and surprisingly she liked it as if it’s my milk! From the smell to taste, and the poop… no significant change if using a breastmilk! It’s also cheaper than other brands with (almost) the same nutritional value like Enfamil, Promil Gold, and the like.

    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.
