What to look for in formula milk?

Formulas should be similar to breast milk as much as possible in terms of nutrients. Mostly milk is made up of two proteins namely casein and whey. Breast milk is about 70% whey (balance is casein) and is therefore more suited to a younger infant as far as digestion goes. Casein is harder for baby to digest and is suitable for an older baby over six months. Most formulas are quite the same in taste and nutrients. Today all brands contain EFAs necessary for baby's growth in terms of brain and nervous system. Some even contain probiotics, a substance essential for the growth of good bacteria in the gut. Other than that it is good to know that formula milk is manufactured under strict surveillance and if one brand comes up with an extra ingredient other manufacturers will match up in matter of time, leaving very little, if any, difference between formulas.
