All mothers want their babies the best possible nutritional status for them; from clothes they wear, toys they play with to the milk brand’s baby formula that’s safe and nutritious for them. There is an international organization named the World Health Organization (WHO) that recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible. But in most cases, breastfeeding may not be possible for all women. For many, the decision to breastfeed or formula feed is based on several factors such as their comfort level, lifestyle, and more.

For those moms out there who can’t breastfeed or who just decide not to, infant formula is a healthy alternative. Special milks that are for growing up kids 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. The huge majority of these can be found in most leading supermarkets, drugstores, and groceries nationwide. The list is here:
