FORMULA FEEDING
Feeding Your Baby
Deciding how and what to feed your baby is a personal choice only you can make. Breast Milk is the optimal feeding for a baby. For that reason, I recommend that you breastfeed, and for as long as possible during your baby's first year. In addition to supplying proper nutrition, breastfeeding helps protect your baby from disease.

If you have chosen not to breastfeed, if you need to supplement your breast milk or if you stop breastfeeding before your baby is a year old, I will recommend an iron-fortified infant formula. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends an iron-fortified formula as the only acceptable alternative to breast milk during the first year.

Whole cow's milk and low-iron infant formulas should not be fed during a baby’s first year. Do not change formulas unless you talk to my office nurse or me first.
