Signs That Your Baby Is On The Right Formula

Signs That Your Baby Is On The Right Formula

June 14, 2023

With a variety of formula options to choose from, it can be tough to know which one is the right choice for your baby. Finding a formula that best meets their dietary needs is key however, and their little bodies will tell you exactly how well their formula is meeting those needs. Here are a few simple ways to be sure that your little one is getting the most out of their baby formula:

Symptoms You Want To See

To get started, look for those positive signs that tell you your baby is happy overall! If their formula is a right fit for them, they should be eager to take their bottle, seem content after a feeding and free of tummy pains or digestive issues, have regular bowel movements and be on track with their developmental weight gain. These signs should be evident whether your baby has been on their formula for an extended period of time, as well as if they have changed to a new one. These are all tell tale signs that their body is responding well to the formula they are consuming!

Symptoms To Look Out For

On the contrary, if you recognize any of the following signs in your baby, chances are their formula is not reacting well with their body and it may be time for a change. Overall fussiness and digestive discomfort such as arching of their back, straining to have a bowel movement or excessive spit up and vomiting can all be symptoms that signal a problem. Additionally, pay attention to their bowel movements. Are they constipated, experiencing diarrhea or do they have blood in their stool? These are not normal symptoms either. Other things to look for include a rash and trouble breathing, as these symptoms signify a possible allergy and should be responded to immediately.

If your baby is having a hard time latching during feedings, perhaps a lip or tongue tie is the culprit.
