Your guide to find the right baby formula

Because every little one has different feeding needs.

Find the formula that suits your baby

Feeding quantities by age

Quantities & frequency are a suggestion; follow your baby’s lead. Introducing solids from 6–9 months is typical.

Follow your baby’s lead to learn their feeding rhythm & hunger cues like rooting for milk, sucking motions or putting hands to mouth—crying is a later sign of hunger and might be a signal for something else.

The transition to formula & changes in baby’s eating habits

Your baby’s eating habits may change as you transition to formula feeding or supplementing. From refusing breast & eating faster, to going longer between feedings and not passing stool for a few days. These are common & don’t always signal a problem. Talk to a pediatrician if you have questions about your baby’s health.

The three forms of infant formula

Tip

When you’re in doubt or don’t know where to start, talk to your pediatrician.
