Question: Is it worth using follow on milk?

Research shows that switching to follow-on formula at 6 months has no benefits for your baby. Your baby can continue to have first infant formula as their main drink until they are 1 year old. The labels on follow-on formula can look very similar to those on first infant formula.

Why do companies make follow-on milk?

So why do manufacturers make these products, and advertise their “health benefits” if children dont need them? The UK government does not proactively monitor formula advertising for breaches, so infant formula companies, who profit when women do not breastfeed, regularly undermine breastfeeding by breaching the code.

Why is it important to avoid allowing any advertising for formula milk in the health care system?

Most of these are unnecessary and can be harmful. Where these products differ from most others is that such advertising can damage the short- and long-term health of our children by undermining breastfeeding and misleading parents who bottle feed about what milk to use.

Does my 6 month old need follow on milk?

Follow-on formula should never be fed to babies under 6 months old. Research shows that switching to follow-on formula at 6 months has no benefits for your baby. Your baby can continue to have first infant formula as their main drink until they are 1 year old.
