From 6 months - Infant milk

How to choose your infant milk ?

Whether complete or linked to mixed breastfeeding, weaning is a key moment that comes with one of the first big decisions as parents: the choice of infant milk. Weaning and infant milk, let's take stock to see more clearly.

Specific needs for your baby

During the first weeks, the composition of breast milk changes according to the baby's needs to reach a stabilized composition approximately 3 weeks after birth. On average (1): 87% water; 7% lactose; 3.8% lipids (fats) including omega 3 (DHA) and omega 6 (ARA); 1% protein including casein and soluble proteins with a ratio that evolves to reach 50/50. These are all necessary elements for your baby that you will find in Babybio infant milk formulas in accordance with the regulations.

Organic infant milks, a double regulation

Making the right decision is one of the concerns of any parent, starting with the choice of infant milk during weaning.

It should be noted that organic infant milks follow both the specifications for infant nutrition but also the requirements of the organic farming method. 

  • What guarantees do the new child regulations apply from 2020?
Infant milk formulas are subject to specific and rigorous European regulations. This sets the content of the different constituents that make up infant formula milk to meet the nutritional needs of babies. The new European regulation which entered into force on February 22, 2020 implies a modification of the formulas which must now be enriched with DHA, a "polyunsaturated" fatty acid of the omega 3 family. A regulation which applies whatever the age and types of infant formula formulas.
  • What does the Organic regulation guarantee?
Organic Agriculture is a production method that combines specific environmental practices, respect for biodiversity, preservation of natural resources and the assurance of a high level of animal welfare (no preventive treatment with antibiotics, no GMOs, etc.) (2).

  

An organic infant milk therefore meets both the nutritional needs of your baby in accordance with the regulations in force while guaranteeing a food product that participates in sustainable management of agriculture and the environment. Babybio has chosen to go beyond these regulations by offering formulas that also follow pediatric recommendations.

How to choose the right Babybio infant milk? 

A pioneer in organic infant milks, Babybio has been committed for more than 20 years to manufacturing high quality infant milks in France and formulated according to pediatric recommendations.

All of the steps are notably controlled by an independent certification body which guarantees compliance with organic production rules. In addition, all the components of Babybio formulas are the result of a careful selection and all in compliance with the infant regulations applicable in 2020.

And among the different possible formulas, how to choose infant milk for your baby?

To make your choice easier, all Babybio formulas, whatever the range and whatever the age, now contain:

- DHA *, essential fatty acid from the omega 3 family

- ARA, essential fatty acid from the omega 6 family, in a content equivalent to DHA according to the recommendations of pediatricians.

The brand therefore offers three ranges enriched with DHA & ARA: the Primea range, the Optima range which also contains prebiotic fibers (FOS & GOS) and the Caprea range based on organic goat milk, something to offer each baby his own. Babybio infant milk.

And so that your baby can keep the same range regardless of his age, the old Babybio Growth Powder formula has been replaced by Primea Croissance or Optima Croissance.
