Baby&Me Organic - Benefits, dosage and side effects

Baby&Me Organic is an organic formula that can be used as a complementary milk or a substitute for breast milk when needed. Baby&Me Organic is intended for babies aged 0-12 months.

Formula milk is made from cow's milk that has been processed to meet the nutritional needs of babies. Formula-producing cows are sometimes given injections of growth hormone and antibiotics to encourage milk production. In addition, the grass eaten by cows is also given pesticide spray to free from pests.

This condition is different from organic formula milk produced by cows which have been confirmed to have not received antibiotics and artificial growth hormones. Organic milk-producing cows also eat pesticide-free grass.

According to one study, organic formula milk has a higher nutritional value than regular formula. But keep in mind, breast milk is still the best choice and the main nutritional intake for babies. Therefore, it is recommended to give breast milk until the child is 2 years old, or at least until he is 6 months old.

Milk Interaction with Drugs

Milk can reduce absorption and decrease the effectiveness of the drugs tetracycline, quinolones, and propranolol, if these drugs are taken with milk. Consult further with your doctor about the method and schedule of drug administration so that it does not interact with milk.

Side Effects of Organic Formula Milk

Immediately consult a doctor if your baby has vomiting, diarrhea, or a rash appears after consuming milk, including organic formula. These symptoms could indicate the baby has a cow's milk allergy or suffers from lactose intolerance.

You also need to consult a pediatrician before giving any formula milk to get the best nutrition for your little one.
