Cow's Milk is naturally an excellent source of Calcium, which is important for the development of teeth and bones. It is also a rich source of Vitamin D, and is a complete Protein source as well, with eight grams of protein and twelve grams of carbohydrates per cup.
Unlike adults, babies are unable to digest Cow’s Milk, as it contains high concentrations of protein and Minerals, which may cause stress upon a new-born’s immature kidneys. Cow’s Milk also does not contain the healthiest types of fat for growing babies too, and in addition, lacks the proper amounts of Vitamin C, Iron, and other Nutrients that an infant requires.
Although an infant formula tends to be sweeter than Cow’s Milk, most baby Formula Milk is based on modified Cow's Milk but the protein in the milk is hydrolysed, which means it is broken down so your Baby is less likely to react to it. Many infant formulas contain the extra Vitamins that your little one needs, such as DHA. This essential omega-3 fatty acid is often found in types of fatty Fish, and is crucial for brain and Eye development.
