The Only Organic Toddler Formula Made Without Lactose
The Best Organic Start
Nature’s One believes breast milk is the baby’s best organic option. Baby’s Only Organic® Toddler Formula is intended for toddlers 1-year and older or as directed by a healthcare professional. After formula feeding or breast feeding the first year, Baby’s Only Organic Toddler Formula is a good nutritional choice to assure continuation of strong growth and development.
Organic LactoRelief® Toddler Formula
Baby's Only Organic® LactoRelief® Toddler Formula was the first organic milk-based formula intended for children with a sensitivity to lactose following a gastrointestinal illness or have been diagnosed as lactose intolerant. It also offers a lactose free alternative to parents who wish to avoid soy protein.†
Lactose intolerance occurs when the body’s ability to make the enzyme, lactase, is affected resulting in the inability to digest milk sugar (lactose). Lactose intolerance can occur after a gastrointestinal illness resulting in diarrhea. It can also occur due to a genetic disorder, although this is rare. Lactose intolerance can result in stomach cramps, nausea, bloating, gassiness and/or diarrhea

This is important for the development of bones and teeth and helps maintain the gums. It is essential for night vision, healthy skin, hair and mucous membranes. It is sometimes referred to as the anti-infective vitamin because it is required for the proper functioning of the immune system and helps prevent infection.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 300 IU (per 100 calories)
Good animal sources of Vitamin A include: milk and dairy products, organ meats such as liver.
Good plant sources of the pro Vitamin A carotenoids include: deep yellow and orange fruits and vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, and dark green leafy vegetables.
This is also known as cholecalciferol or Vitamin D3, is often called the sunshine vitamin because of the body's ability to make it from the interaction of the sun on the skin. Vitamin D is essential for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps the body properly utilize calcium and phosphorus for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 75 IU (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: fortified milk, cheese, eggs, some fish such as sardines and salmon, and fish oils.
Vitamin E is a generic term used to describe a family of eight antioxidants – 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. However, only alpha-tocopherol is the form actively used in the body and is, therefore, the form of Vitamin E found in the largest quantity in blood and tissues. Natural Vitamin E Acetate, also known as natural alpha-tocopheryl acetate, is the commonly used form of Vitamin E in foods and vitamin supplements. Vitamin E protects Vitamin A and the essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body. It is needed for the proper functioning of nerves and muscles and helps to form red blood cells, muscle and other tissues.
A deficiency of Vitamin E has been observed in individuals with severe malnutrition or who have a malabsorption syndrome such as cystic fibrosis or cholestatic liver disease. A deficiency of Vitamin E can result in neurological symptoms such as impaired balance and coordination, muscle weakness, and damage to the retina of the eye. Excessive Vitamin E can impair blood clotting leading to hemorrhage and can have a negative effect on white blood cell functioning.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 2 IU (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: poultry, seafood, green leafy vegetables, egg yolk, nuts, seeds, wheat germ, whole grains.
There are three types:
• Vitamin K1 or phylloquinone which is found in plants
• Vitamin K2 or menaquinone which is synthesized by many bacteria
• Vitamin K3 or menadione which is a synthetic form
Vitamin K helps the blood to clot when the body is injured and is important in bone development and repair. In newborn babies, there is a life threatening and preventable bleeding disorder known as Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding (VKDB). This is the reason why it is standard practice to give all newborns an injection of phylloquinone after birth. Baby's Only Organic® formulas contain the plant-based phylloquinone (Vitamin K1).
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 8.5 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: green leafy vegetables, pork, liver, oats, wheat bran, whole grains.
Biotin is part of the B-complex of vitamins. It is thought to play a role in cell growth and is important in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates (sugars), and some amino acids (the building blocks of protein).
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 3 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: eggs, meats, fish, nuts, seeds, dried beans and peas (legumes).
Folic acid, sometimes called folate or folacin or Vitamin B9, works with vitamins B6 and B12 in protein metabolism. It is needed to make genetic material (DNA and RNA). It promotes normal red blood cell formation and reduces the risk of neural tube (brain and spine) birth defects. This is one reason why a folic acid supplement is recommended during pregnancy.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 15 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: poultry, liver, dark green leafy vegetables, dried beans and peas (legumes), yeast breads, wheat germ, cereals, oranges, grapefruits.
Niacin, also known as nicotinic acid or Vitamin B3, is found in every cell of the body. It is necessary for energy production and to maintain the normal functioning of skin, nerves and the digestive tract. It can be manufactured by the body from the amino acid tryptophan. However, the amount needed by the body will usually exceed the amount that the body can produce and it is necessary to consume niacin from foods.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 1100 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: poultry, fish (especially tuna and salmon), beef, peanuts and peanut butter, seeds, potatoes.
Pantothenic acid is also known as Vitamin B5. It is involved in numerous chemical reactions in the body and is essential for the metabolism of fat and sugars. Pantothenic acid is also involved in the manufacture of chemicals that regulate nerve functions.

Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 100 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: whole grain and enriched grain products, pork, seafood, cereals.
Vitamin B6: This can also be referred to as pyridoxine or pyridoxal. This vitamin influences many body functions including the regulation of blood sugar levels, the manufacturing of hemoglobin in red blood cells which carries oxygen to all body cells, and the functioning of the nervous system. As protein intake increases, so does the body's need for Vitamin B6. Also, an adequate Vitamin B6 intake decreases the requirement for niacin from food sources because it aids in the conversion of tryptophan to niacin.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 60 mcg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: chicken, fish, pork, liver, whole grains, cereals, spinach, sweet and white potatoes, bananas, prunes, watermelon.

As blood passes through the tiny air sacs in the lung, oxygen attaches itself to the iron in the blood. That's how oxygen is carried to all parts of the body. Iron combines with protein and copper to make hemoglobin, a necessary component of red blood cells that carries oxygen to the cells. Iron also is a component of myoglobin, a protein that stores oxygen specifically in muscle tissue. Approximately 90% of iron in the body is conserved and reused every day.

Human milk is relatively low in manganese (4 to 6 micrograms per liter). formulas, both dairy-based and soy-based, contain higher amounts of manganese reflecting the levels of manganese found naturally in cow's milk or soybeans. No manganese is added to Baby's Only Organic® formulas. As reported on our labels, Baby's Only Organic® Dairy formula contains 5 micrograms per 100 Calories and Baby's Only Organic® Soy formula contains 55 micrograms per 100 Calories. For babies and toddlers, the manganese levels of Baby's Only Organic® Dairy and Soy formulas are well within the recommendations for a safe and adequate intake by the Food and Nutrition Board of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, which can range as high as 600 micrograms for a baby 0-6 months old. The American Academy of Pediatrics specifies a 5 microgram minimum per 100 calories. The IFA and the American Academy of Pediatrics does not dictate maximum levels of manganese for formula.
Some of the minerals in Baby's Only Organic® do appear to be slightly elevated when compared to other formulas. The reason for this is that we list the actual naturally occurring amount of these minerals. For example, Nature's One® does not add any additional manganese to our soy formula. Additionally, soybeans tend to have a higher amount of these minerals naturally occurring such as you noted for manganese. Other formula companies do not list the naturally occurring amounts found in the soy. Instead, these companies appear to add additional amounts of these minerals and only report the amount they add. They do this for protection from falling below the FDA minimums as required by law. This is practiced because the naturally occurring amounts of these minerals in soy can fluctuate depending on the soil conditions where the soybean was grown. Failing to meet the minimum requirement of these minerals would trigger a recall of the formula.

This is an electrolyte and works with sodium to regulate the body's waste balance, transmit nerve impulses, and regulate muscle contraction including the heart muscles. It is essential for metabolism and the release of insulin. In babies and young children who have diarrhea or vomiting, an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® containing a balance among sodium, potassium and chloride is usually recommended to help prevent the body from becoming dehydrated due to a deficiency in these electrolytes.
Baby's Only Organic®LactoReliefTM & Dairy Formulas: 120 mg (per 100 calories)
Baby's Only Organic® Soy Formula: 140 mg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: bananas, citrus fruits, dried fruits, deep yellow vegetables, potatoes, milk, bran cereal.
The primary role of sodium in the body is to maintain fluid balance. Sodium is an electrolyte and works with potassium and chloride to conduct electrical currents in the body and keep tissue fluids in balance. A deficiency of sodium is rare but loss of sodium through diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating can cause dehydration, muscle cramps, weakness, and headaches. This is especially critical in babies and young children and the reason for use of an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance®with a balance of sodium, potassium and chloride when a child has diarrhea and vomiting.
Baby's Only Organic® Formulas: 30 mg (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources: salt, milk, processed foods such as luncheon meats.
This is an electrolyte and helps to maintain fluid balance in the body and also is a component of the stomach juices (hydrochloric acid) needed for digestion of foods. A deficiency of chloride is rare but loss of chloride through diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating can cause an upset in the body's fluid balance resulting in dehydration. In babies and young children who have diarrhea or vomiting, an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® containing a balance among sodium, potassium and chloride is usually recommended to help prevent the body from becoming dehydrated.
Baby's Only Organic®LactoReliefTM & Dairy Formulas: 80 mg (per 100 calories)

Carbohydrates are one of the crucial dietary sources of energy that support the brain, enable muscular contractions, and provide the fuel necessary for a baby's and toddler's rapid growth, especially through 24-months of age. Each gram of carbohydrate provides 4 Calories. So it is important for a child to get adequate amounts of carbohydrates each day from good food sources.
Carbohydrates are sometimes simply called sugars or starches. They are classified scientifically as monosaccharides, disaccharides, or polysaccharides.
Monosaccharide is a one molecule sugar (referred to as a simple sugar or simple carbohydrate). Examples are glucose (sometimes called dextrose), fructose (sometimes called fruit sugar), and galactose. Glucose is the major fuel needed by the body for energy. This is why intravenous fluids (IVs) used in medical situations contain glucose (dextrose).
Disaccharide is made up of two monosaccharides (referred to as a simple sugar or simple carbohydrate). Lactose (sometimes called milk sugar) is made by the joining of one glucose molecule with one galactose molecule. Sucrose (also called table sugar) is made by joining one molecule of fructose with one molecule of glucose. The body breaks down disaccharides into monosaccharides and then converts these to glucose providing needed energy for the body. Baby's Only Organic® LactoReliefTM and Soy formulas do not contain lactose; none of our formulas contain sucrose.
Polysaccharide contains more than two sugar molecules. Examples of polysaccharides include organic brown rice syrup, as is found in Baby's Only Organic® formulas, corn syrup, molasses, and starches. Polysaccharides are often called complex sugars or complex carbohydrates.
Simple sugars are quickly digested and absorbed by the body into the bloodstream. As sugar levels rise in the blood, the pancreas secretes the hormone insulin. Insulin is needed to move the sugar from the blood into the cells where the sugar is then used for energy. When this process goes fast, a feeling of hunger will more likely occur sooner. When it occurs slower, the body appears to be satisfied from hunger longer. Simple sugars usually cause blood sugar levels to rise quicker than complex sugars and increase the production and release of insulin by the pancreas. If the sugar in the bloodstream is not used by the body for energy, then it is stored as fat.
The longer the carbohydrate length, the slower the body breaks it down and, thus, the slower the absorption of the sugar from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream. If there is a slower absorption of the sugar, there is a slower release of insulin. Also, a slower digestion lets the body utilize the sugar for energy and there's less potential for the sugar to be converted into fat.
Breast Milk is unique in its properties and cannot be duplicated. There are many unique compositional features in breast milk that result in its easy digestion by babies, including factors that help the breakdown of nutrients and their absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. There is no comparing the lactose digestion of a breast fed baby to that of a formula fed baby because manufactured formulas do not contain the many other compositional features of breast milk.
Added Lactose The lactose used in formulas is derived from cow's milk without the benefit of the unique features of human breast milk. In formulas containing only lactose as the source of carbohydrate, some of the lactose comes into the formula naturally as a part of the cow's milk and the remainder is added lactose. The added lactose brings the total carbohydrate level to the requirement needed in a formula. In other words, the amount of lactose that comes in naturally with the cow's milk does not totally meet the needs of a baby and additional lactose must be added. The only lactose contained in Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula is naturally occurring lactose derived from organic cow's milk.
Organic Brown Rice Syrup The carbohydrate source added to Baby's Only Organic® formulas is organic brown rice syrup. Rice is known to be a relatively non-allergenic food and well tolerated by babies. As a result, rice cereal is often the first food introduced to older babies. Organic brown rice syrup also offers the benefit of slower digestion and absorption providing a steadier level of sugar being absorbed into the bloodstream, a more even production and release of insulin, and a more even supply of energy to the body's cells. In addition, Nature’s One® organic brown rice syrup has been filtered to help eliminate environmental toxins that could potentially be found in ground water and soil.
Organic brown rice syrup is slightly sweeter than lactose but significantly less sweet than sucrose (table sugar) or cane sugar. The medical community has expressed concern over using cane sugar in formulas because it is five times sweeter than lactose and could pose health or medical issues related to obesity or dental caries. The carbohydrates in Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula consist of 35% naturally occurring lactose from the organic non-fat cow's milk and 65% organic brown rice syrup.
Baby's Only Organic® LactoReliefTM & Soy Formulas are the only formulas made without lactose in the U.S. that do not contain corn syrup or sucrose (table sugar). Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula contains naturally occurring lactose without the added lactose as found in leading brand formulas. The chart below explains the primary differences between the three formulas manufactured by Nature's One®

*Do not use for children with galactosemia.
Lactose Intolerance Unlike other formula makers, Nature's One® prefers to add organic brown rice syrup to its Dairy-based formula rather than more lactose. There are many children and adults who either lack or do not produce adequate levels of the enzyme lactase which is necessary to digest lactose. For example, preterm babies are often fed a lactose-free formula because of their inability to manufacture adequate lactase. When there are inadequate levels of lactase in the gastrointestinal tract, this is referred to as lactose intolerance. Symptoms include bloating, flatulence, loose stools, and in some cases diarrhea. If a baby does not produce enough lactase, then lactose will be a problem. Also, following an illness that causes diarrhea, such as the flu, the intestinal tract's ability to make lactase is compromised. This is often why healthcare professionals will recommend a lactose free formula for children who have had a bout of diarrhea.
There is also a medical condition called galactosemia whereby a person cannot digest galactose, which is part of lactose. As noted previously, lactose is made of galactose and glucose. For people with galactosemia, they MUST avoid any dairy product or other foods that contain lactose and galactose. Baby's Only Organic® Soy formula is appropriate for babies with galactosemia.
Baby's Only Organic® LactoReliefTM Formula: 10.7 g (per 100 calories)
Baby's Only Organic® Dairy and Soy Formulas: 10.8 g (per 100 calories)
Good Food Sources Complex Carbohydrate: brown rice .
Proteins are essential to life and are necessary for the body's manufacturing and maintenance of all cells and tissues, including organ and brain development, and the making of essential body constituents such as hormones and enzymes. If excess protein is consumed and not needed by the body, it is converted to fat and stored by the body as a potential future energy source. Each gram of protein provides 4 Calories.
Proteins are made up of amino acids; there are 20 amino acids. Baby's Only Organic® formulas (Dairy, LactoRelief, and Soy) provide all of the essential and non-essential amino acids needed to support growth and development.
The protein source in Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula is organic non-fat dried cow's milk and the source in Baby's Only Organic® LactoReliefTM Formula is organic milk protein concentrate. When human breast milk is unavailable, the recommendation is to use a dairy-based formula. A cow's milk (dairy- based) formula is recommended because the proteins are whey (the liquid protein portion) and casein (the curd protein portion), which are proteins found in human milk. Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula and LactoReliefTM Formula consist of 18% whey and 82% casein.
Taurine is not an amino acid but an amino acid derivative. Taurine functions as an antioxidant and is involved as a part of bile acids in early childhood. Taurine is abundant in human milk, but not in cow's milk protein or soy protein. Taurine is added to Baby's Only Organic® Dairy and Soy formulas to the level in breast milk.
When children have an allergic reaction to cow's milk protein and soy protein, hydrolyzed formulas are often recommended. The cow's milk protein has been treated to break down the protein, which reduces the allergy potential of the protein. There are presently no organic hydrolyzed formulas on the market.
Baby's Only Organic® LactoReliefTM Formula: 2.1 grams protein (per 100 Calories)
Baby's Only Organic® Dairy Formula: 2.6 grams protein (per 100 Calories)
Good Food Sources: Animal meats, fish, dairy products, soybeans, legumes, nuts.
The term "lipid" refers to compounds including oils, waxes, animal fats and triglycerides that do not dissolve in water. Lipids are most commonly referred to simply as fats.
Fats constitute the principal structural material of all living cells and are an important source of energy. Healthy skin and hair are maintained by fat. Fat also helps the body absorb and move the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K through the bloodstream. Dietary fat intake provides needed essential fatty acids to the body. These essential fatty acids are linoleic acid and linolenic acid. These are fatty acids that the body cannot make and which must be derived from foods.
Fats provide 9 Calories per gram, more than twice the amount of energy provided by a gram of carbohydrate or protein. An excess of dietary Calories provided by carbohydrates, proteins or fats will be stored in the body as adipose tissue. Adipose tissue serves as insulation for the body's cells and organs but an excess of fat can lead to overweight and obesity.
Triglycerides are the chemical form of fats that exist in foods as well as in the body. Animal fats, such as butter and lard, tend to be solid or semisolid at room temperature and are more saturated than fats from plant sources. Fats from plant sources are usually liquid at room temperature and are called oils. Most plant oils are made up of unsaturated fatty acids with the exception of coconut, palm, and palm kernel oils. There are two types of unsaturated fats:
• Monounsaturated fats: Examples include olive and canola oils.
• Polyunsaturated fats: Examples include fish, safflower, sunflower, corn, and soybean oils.
Fats are important nutrient for babies and young children. They are needed to support growth, development and energy needs. A child who is not eating or drinking foods with adequate amounts of essential fatty acids can develop a fatty acid deficiency. This is one reason why healthcare professionals strongly advise against the use of skim or low fat milks during early childhood. Signs of an essential fatty acid deficiency include poor growth, scaly skin lesions, dry brittle nails, dandruff, and lack of hair luster.
More than 98% of the fat in human breast milk is in the form of triglycerides. The most abundant triglycerides in breast milk are the saturated fatty acids oleic acid and palmitic acid. It also contains high proportions of the essential fatty acids linoleic fatty acid and linolenic fatty acid. Human milk also contains the non-essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ARA (arachidonic acid).
The fat blend of Baby's Only Organic® formulas consist of organic high oleic sunflower and/or organic high oleic safflower oil, organic coconut oil, and organic soybean oil. This blend was developed because the percentages of the various types of fats are similar to breast milk. This combination of oils also provides appropriate levels of the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

Ingredients & Quality
Great for reflux babies!
My daughter has pretty awful acid reflux. We've tried several formulas with no relief to her. The only formula that calmed down her gassiness and fussiness was Enfamil Gentlease, but it did not help her reflux. I also noticed that the first ingredient in Enfamil Gentlease was corn syrup. Bleh. So I did some research and switched to Baby's Only LactoRelief and I couldn't be happier. My baby girl is calm and comfortable, and her reflux is still there but not nearly as bad. We would definitely recommend this formula!
Two happy babies
With both of my babies, I had supply issues, but fought hard to nurse until I physically couldn't. With baby #2, she ALWAYS had gas. I even had allergy testing done on both of us and avoided all the foods that triggered either or both of us. It helped, but if baby wasn't in a carrier or somehow attached to me, she was miserable. After her first bottle of LactoRelief, she was letting someone else hold her and was actually having fun! The next time she ate, I nursed her and back came the crabby baby with bad gas. I absolutely hate watching other's babies that are formula fed because of the smell of the formula and the diapers. Neither of my babies have had issues with bad formula smelling poo, and the formula itself doesn't really have an odor when you open it up. It was a relief to find it the first time, and a relief to not have to go searching when trouble arose again. I will say, the local organic chain will give a 10% discount if you order a case through them. Sadly, we had to move and direct order is our only option now.
Lovin' this formula
I was looking for a formula to supplement breastfeeding and I love this one. It mixes super easy and doesn't smell gross like similac. I recommend this to any concerned breastfeeding mama.
Closest thing to breastmilk in my opinion!!
My plan was to breastfeed until 18 months but my supply had decreased and we had no choice but to supplement with formula. I ordered a free can on-line a while ago just to have on hand and boy was I ever glad to have it! It was heartbreaking making that first bottle but to see him chugging the bottle and enjoying it was enough for me. I didn't realize just how much my supply had decreased but within hours he was a different baby, so much more content with life because he had a full belly! We sadly ran out of Baby's Only formula before our case had come in the mail. We bought 4 different kinds from the store and he hated them...he finally drank one because he was just so hungry and had no other choice. Even though it was supposed to be for lactose sensitive babies it didn't agree with his system at all...and I was gagging at the smell just making it! I was so happy when our order came to the door! Threw out all the junk formula and within a few days his poops returned back to normal and we had an extremely happy baby again! His eyes now light up when he sees his bottle and I am a happy momma knowing he's getting all the nutrients he needs without harmful ingredients! Thank you so much Natures One for making such a great formula. I rave about it on my moms group online! Making the transition from breastmilk to formula was easy peasy for us because he loves the taste of it and doesn't wreck his insides!
I love this formula.
I love the fact that this baby formula is as clean as baby formula can get with all natural ingredients . I feel confident feeding my baby this knowing it's safe and healthy .
My daughter and I had just about given up on formula. My grandson went through every formula on the grocery store shelves. He had a reaction to every last one of them. I discovered this formula through a web search, read the reviews, read the ingredients and was very impressed that nothing in here is genetically modified. Told my daughter about this formula I discovered and we decided to take a shot and give your formula a try. We ordered three different types of your formula and found that the Lactorelief was the one that he did the best with . We are both so relieved that we gave your formula a try. This formula is definitely the best one we've come across.
Thank you so much for offering a clean, healthy alternative to the mass-produced formulas.
Happy baby and happy toddler
Our little guy began using the Lactorelief formula after many sleepless nights and miserable days. We would joke that he had a bit of a crabby nature until we finally realized, after switching to this formula, that his general malaise was probably due to discomfort. What a different disposition emerged after finding the right breast milk supplement for him! I continued until he was 12 months old and switched over to a carrageenan free almond milk. This worked fine until some gastric issues forced us into an almond milk break and back into the arms of LactoRelief. It must be delicious because he refused to begin back on the almond milk. What helps me feel better about the added expense during his toddler years is the fact that the formula is nutritionally complete, so it takes the edge off of our daily worries about his vitamin intake. Well worth the investment for the first two years of life for baby and parents!
Our baby had gas pains and was bloated when he had the dairy baby's only, and with every other big brand formula. When I discovered the hexane extraction method of DHA and ARA from fungus and adding it to baby formula, we went organic only. Then I found out that certain "organic" formula companies bought off the FDA to be able to add those chemically extracted amino acids to their formula. We researched more and found the lactose relief at Marlene' s. We have yet to have another screaming crying gas bubble belly baby experience. It seemed to happen about an hour after formula feeding, and it's been two days. Yay! We found that Baby's Only Organic is the only truly organic formula no matter how the others are labeled.
We had been having such difficulties finding a formula my son could handle and even like at all. I originally wanted to put my son on this because as a breast cancer survivor I cannot breast feed but chose another brand at his birth. I wish I never made that mistake . After my son being on this formula for one day I have a whole new happier baby! He loves the flavor , his bowel movements are better and no projectile vomiting. Thank you !! My Son and all my future children will only ever be on this formula. Thank you for providing a formula so close to mothers and organic that is lactose free and the best I can provide my son as I cannot breast feed . Thank you!!
after trying the dairy formula it made my son have really hard poop and he got colic a lot from it. Then I decided to try lactos relief and it really did help a lot!
