Expert Tips For Managing Common Infant Nutrition Challenges

July 10, 2023

What should I do if my baby is not gaining enough weight? When should I consult a doctor? Are there any potential medical reasons for poor weight gain? How can I monitor my baby’s weight? Should I consider increasing the amount of milk or introducing additional foods? A lot of parents have such questions. And they go to the pediatricians or discuss among themselves how to make sure the baby’s development is happening at an optimal level. But what is this “optimal level”?

Well, here are some tips for you to make sure you are on the right track:

1. Try to keep to a healthy baby feeding chart

The best hour range to feed your baby is 3-4 so that the baby does not feel hungry and does not lose their nutrition. The stomach of a newborn is small, so it might need to be fed more frequently than toddlers. A 2 oz portion of baby formula is what your baby needs to stay full and healthy.

2. Feed your baby only with breast milk or formula until six months

Breast milk or infant formula is only required during the first six months of life. Giving water or replacing baby formula with animal milk or self-made baby formula is not an option because it contains bacteria that can provoke indigestion and intoxication.

3. Make sure to choose organic baby formula

Choosing baby formula to develop healthy eating habits is essential so that a baby does not get used to sweet food and for its organism to get fewer chemicals. As a parent, you must be careful when selecting baby formula. It is not the time to economize. Your job is to let the baby get the best nutrients.

What is ‘organic formula’, and why does my child need it?

Simply speaking, organic baby formula is manufactured from soy or cow’s milk. The main distinction is the absence of hormones, toxins, GMOs, antibiotics and pesticides, or other chemicals, colors, flavors, stabilizers, and thickeners, which makes it safe and nourished, and happy.

How do I choose a good product?

Of course, as a parent, you want to choose the best for your child. Nowadays, the range on the market is huge, and often you might get lost trying to figure out what is best for your baby. So, how do you find the highest-quality formula?

  1. Analyze the type of formula your baby needs. There are multiple organic formulas available based on cow’s milk, soy, or hypoallergenic ingredients. When choosing the right sort of formula, take into account your baby’s individual requirements as well as consult a healthcare professional.
  2.  Do your research. As simple as it sounds, you have to make sure you choose the brand that is committed to sourcing the top ingredients for the product and centers its values around clean, organic, and high-quality nutrition for little ones. Organic infant formula from Europe is staying up-to-date on the latest research and trends to provide their customers with the best innovative products available.
  3. Review the comments and suggestions on various organic formula brands, read feedback from other parents, look for recommendations from reliable sources, or join parenting forums.  
  4. Consider the pricing and accessibility of the organic supplement you are considering. Make sure you can quickly get it whenever you need it and that it is within your budget.

Making sure the formula fits your baby’s needs is essential, as the consequences can be very extremely damaging. Allergies, iron deficiency, and metabolic disorders are the most typical response to poor-quality infant formula. 


Being a parent is a difficult task, to say the least. With today’s access to information and the range of products, there is too much pressure to get lost in the process of choosing the best for your child. You often feel the need to keep up with the new trends, the latest products on the market, and other parents’ ways of raising their children. Every child is different; what works for one may not work for another. And remember: you are the main expert in maintaining your baby’s health. Trust your instincts but do not hesitate to reach out for a piece of advice to experts. Wishing you and your little one a healthy journey!
