mommy definitely mas mahal mas complete yung nutrients.kumbaga sa lutong ulam pag bumili sa carinderia tinipid o hindi kumpleto yung sahog, basta masarap at may lasa pero kung restaurant ka bumili, kumpleto and sahog at sagana kaya mas maha..some applies sa milk.

yung sa gatas ng anak ko bonna sya dati tapos pinapalitan ng nan tapos gain kasi yung bonna daw processed sya pero hindi katulad nung NAN or gain na mas pinino yung pagkakaprocess.. mas maraming process at equipments yung dinaan nung gain at NAN at iba pang mamahalin na gatas para achieve yung quality na gusto nila(manufacturers) sa milk na ilalabas nila.. :) hope this helps.. :) --- according to sa pedia ko.

one difference is the the nutrient content of the milk. mas mahal mas dense ang gatas because of the high nutrient content. plus un nucleotides/DHA contents ng mga pricey milks. just look at bonakid and progress gold. the only difference between the two milk from wyeth is the DHA/nucleotide contents. kaya naman kung pantulong lang sa nagbbreastfeed na nanay un milk you can go with less expensive milk, which is without and/or less DHA/nucleotides. but kung hinde ka nagbbreastfeed, mas prefered un mga expensive formula milk. This is because of the nucleotides/DHA content na nakikita sa sa breastmilk para s abrain development ng baby.

Isa pang difference aside sa price ay yung amoy sa baby, medyo maasim ang amoy (notice ko lang po) if cheaper milk, unlike the expensive one.

DG - goat's milk... best option next to breastmilk

Nutramigen and the likes -  specially formulated.. for those babies with super sensitive tummies

cow'smilk- i think its gain plus advance and Promil gold

Sa Enfa series I also notice mataba ang mga bata like my pamangkins. So, I bought it for my kids saka lang talaga nagkalaman at nagkabilbil ang panganay ko. Dati di sila hingi ng hingi ng milk pero now, they would ask kahit kakatapos lang mag lunch o dinner ng solid food.

Pinakamahal na milk na alam ko and complete nutrient is Pediasure.

sis enfalac ang mahal na version ng milk ng meadjohnson (may A+ which is more expensive) kasi ang murang version nla ay alactagrow.. since birth enfalac, enfapro and ngayon enfagrow milk ng anak ko, di naman sya tabain pero mabigat sya, "siksik" sabe ng pedia..

most expensive milk for 6-12 mos is enfapro a+, in terms of cost/kg.

for 1-2 years old - pediasure.

the more expensive the milk, the more ARA/DHA it has. that's why most expensive si enfa a+ series, because it contains the most amount of ARA and DHA, which helps with brain development. pediasure is expensive because it is a specialty milk, especially formulated for hindi malakas kumain na kids.

medyo mataba ang babies drinking bonna and lactum because mas mataas ang sugar content compared to others.

Yes mga sisies, its like we are paying for the Quality of milk our babies/kids are drinking. My eldest is taking Nido fortified because shes now 10yrs old but when she was a baby NAN HA series siya. Si bunso ko naman is taking in SIMILAC HW. For me kase, parang i feel guilty sa mga anak ko kung titipirin ko ang milk nila, its like just letting them eat kahit anong pgkain meron jan, unlike if we buy the expensive one its like kampante tayo that they are eating the right kind right of food and nutritious. POV ko lang ito mga sis.

dapat papalitan ko gatas ni baby kasi advice ng friend ko para tumaba si daniela kaso nung tinanong ko pedia regarding sa mga gatas na ganun eh ikumpara ko daw milya milya ang layo ng mga enfa series sa nido bonna etc.

sabi ng friend ko lagi daw ako sa mahal sa branded kaya di nataba ang baby ko. kaso first baby ko ito kaya hindi ko magawang suwayin si pedia kung sa ikakabuti naman ni baby ang sinasabi niya

kaya lahat ng gatas na binigay ni pedia yun lang ginagamit ko. s26, enfapro a+, enfagrown a+ at pediasure hindi mataba si baby pero ok na rin

^even if you switch to a cheaper milk, it doesn't necessarily mean na your baby is healthier if tumaba sya. it only means, mas madami ang intake niya ng sugar which results to being chubbier. so its good that you listen to your pedia's advise.

there are kids na mataba but sickly naman, because of the milk that they drink. most cheap milks kase, they contain only the minimum amount of nutrients required by the FDA.

baby ko from 0-1yr naka enfa series siya, enfalac a+ mataba, mabigat halos monthly ang pagdagdag ng timbang at bibo same with enfapro a+, but notice ko nung nag enfagrow a+ na siya (for 1-3yrs). fron feb 2011 to may 2011 1.5 kilos lang ang nadagdag sa kanya na kung tutuusin dapat hindi dahil ang layo ng ng months na pagitan. Napansin ko din na di niya gusto ang vanilla flavor, natatamisan siya masyado, nag switch ako sa lactum, progress, bearbrand, alactagrow, but nag popoop siya, nag try ako ng nido jr, doon siya nahiyang, mas bumigat ang timbang niya in 3weeks time. and mas malakas siya kumain, hindi din siya mataba (super likot kasi) kapag namamasyal kami never na nagpabuhat sa akin man o sa yaya niya o even kay hubby.

Mas ok nga daw ang makukuha mo sa expensive na gatas, pero nagbabase din kasi ako sa HIYANG sa baby ko, like sa kapitbahay namin, even na promil anak niya, kung tititigan mo ang bata at kakargahin mo iisipin mong kape ang iniinum dahil payat at magaan, hindi niya hiyang ang gatas pag ganoon dapat palitan pero ayaw palitan. Sa kapitbahay naming isa ganoon ang gatas ng anak niya kape na may milo.

Post by: Caddin on October 18, 2011, 12:50:21 pm
kape na may milo? ilang taon na yung bata?

anyway, siguro nga hiyang-hiyang din. Pero better yung may DHA kasi hindi rin solely sa bigat o laki ng katawan binebase ang health ni baby diba? Maganda yung "siksik".

Yung goat's milk ba pwede rin sa may atopic dermatitis/skin asthma?

Eto din mga sis yung dilemma namin ni hubby last Sunday. We were thinking of changing our baby's milk since she recently turned one. Nung una, she was drinking s26 and wala akong masabi talagang mataba saka healthy si baby ko. Ang bilis niya mag gain ng weight kaya kakatuwa. Same with Promil, ang kaso lang she needs to change milk kase yung poops niya matigas. So her pedia changes to Nan Pro 2, dito talagang pumayat ang baby ko. Although naging maganda yung poops niya, naging uninterested naman kumain yung baby ko. Kaya talagang nagiisip kami ni hubby na magpalit. We saw the Nido Junior, it was half the price of Nan Pro 3 then my hubby checked the nutrition content nila sabi ni hubby mas may lamang pa daw yung Nido kesa Nan Pro. Talagang napaisip kami but still we didn't risk changing muna kase syempre we still think na pedia's opinion really matters kaya we need to wait muna until the next check up bago ako magpalit ng milk. Ayoko din kaseng mag change dahil lang mas mura, ang mahalaga saken is yung mabalik yung dating gana ng baby ko sa pagkain ng food and syempre without the poops problem.

inexpensive for me, means good quality but the price is affordable, while the cheap one is affordable with not so good quality.
 
these all depends on your financial status.  other brands can be inexpensive for you but others would feel they're cheap.
 
what's important is that you're giving your child the milk that suits him.  for instance, promil can be effective with other kids and not with the others.  enfagrow can make a child gain weight while it cause constipation with another.

Hello moms, I've read sa isang comment na mas ok pag madaming process ang pinagdaanan ng milk. I would say no.

Mas madaming process = mas madaming chemical = not good

Another thing, inamin ng MeadJohnson na marketing gimmick lang nila ang "closer ever to breastmilk" dahil sa DHA and ARA content ng gatas nila same as the inclusion of prebiotics. It's FAKE and TOXIC. Extracted from ALGAE and FUNGUS using HEXANE, ACID and BLEACH.

Infant formula is purely chemical.

I mixed feed my son with my milk and formula from his first 3months. Which is very wrong. I was not encouraged by my pedia to go for exclusive breastfeeding. He already said to give my kid Enfalac A+. I didn't know anything about those at that time. I didn't know that breastmilk has 160 fatty acids that will never be available in formulas. I wasn't educated by then. So now, I do not rely on my pedia's advises with regards on my baby's diet. I hate him. Sinusuhulan sila ng mga kumpanya ng gatas to promote their products.

So, with that. I would suggest to give your kids the "regular" milk WITHOUT dha and ara content.

first impression pag mahal,it's good quality with cheaper one it's not so good quality but still it some babies it cam make them heavy, mataba and di sakitin...
While some babies who are having expensive milk minsan payat, sakitin...
Every baby is unique iba iba ang respond ng katawan nila sa milk...Depende how strong they are...

But for us mom and dads who are working very hard for us to give them the best we opted for the expensive one hoping and trusting them to give the nourishment our kids needed...
Financial status is alos one of the reason,nung 0-12 months si baby ko I gave him Promil series and the results is really good di man sya tumaba eh di naman sya nagkasakit...After a year it means more expenses,things needed to provide for him kaya I change to NIDO Jr....I tried and it works!same result dun sa Promil series niya and I think much much more kase nga this time with more help na from the solid foods na ibinibigay ko sa kanya plus vitamins and LOTS OF LOVE.....

napansin ko din na mas dense yung milk, mas mahal.  my baby has been taking pediasure since he was almost a year old.  underweight kasi ang baby ko that time.  ang bagal mag gain ng weight so his pedia prescribed to give him Pediasure.  True enough, naka catch up sya sa weight.  He's now taking Pediasure Plus kasi 3 years old na sya.  Chubby na yung baby ko ngayon pero hindi overweight.  Di ko alam kung nagkakataon lang pero true for me yung sa ad nila na less sick days.  I tried switching kasi to Gain School Advance kasi nagtaas ng almost 70 pesos per can ang price ng Pediasure Plus, during the one month period twice nagkasakit ang anak ko.  Siguro coincidence lang? Ewan ko din basta after nun binalik ko na sya sa Pediasure Plus.  Kahit mahal, basta wag sa gamot masayang ang money  ;)

Formula milk are becomes expensive because these are nutrients dense and because of the nucleotides, DHA and ARA that the manufacturers are incorporated. And you will see kasi na talagang pure un gatas and no extenders kung baga. Extenders maybe sugar so mataas un carbohydrates content niya.
But it still depends on what is hiyang sa ating mga anak.. Kung mag1 yr old na ata anak mu at malakas na sya kumain. At this point kasi ang milk is just a supplement and ang basic source of nutrients na un solid foods so it is very important to give our child healthy foods. Or kung nagbbreastfeed naman, u can try yo buy a cheaper milk supplement kasi breastmilk is nutrient dense it self.

sis young.mama07, so what would you recommend? katakot naman if it chemically produced diba?
she'll be turning 6mos and ang plan ko sana is to still stick with enfa series. sa tingin mo sis? ano kaya ang pwedeng pamalit? tia..

At six months pwede na sya sa mga soft foods which can give nutrients din....

i agree to the other mommies who posted here that the more expensive the milk is the higher the nutrients that our babies get from it unlike the cheaper ones but it really doesn't matter if it is cheaper or more expensive kasi un babies natin ang makaka pag judge nun if acceptable ba sa panlasa nila or hindi.,. :)

In my own opinion there's no other best milk than breastmilk. For romula milk, it all depends on the brand name but actually they are all the same I think kasi they come from COWS. I breastfed my daughter for 20months, weaned her because I got pregnant again. was so worried about her calcium intake because she wouldn't drink any formula milk. I thought formula milk was the answer,but recently after reading articles here www.bosombuddy.org i found out that formula milk isn't good for babies. I also attended breastfeeding seminars and they said that when the baby reaches 1 year old, it's not advisable to give substitutes such as formula milk coz there are a lot of natural food where the child can get calcium. So, whether expensive or cheap formula milk, it doesn't matter. the important thing is we train them to eat natural food instead of being conscious about the formula milk's prices.

Don't look at the price, look at the nutrient content, it does not necessarily follow that if the milk is expensive it is more complete, kasi sometimes its due to the brand name kaya mahal...

The best criteria for you to consider whether the milk is better, is to read and compare the label with the indicated nutrient content of each milk...

God bless and Happy Parenting!

mommies always look at the nutrient levels of the milk as well un reconsitution nila. here are the carbohydrates level of different milk for 1-3 yrs old (from mims.com):

NIDO Jr - 53 g
Lactum 1-3 - 64 g
Enfagrow A+ - 64.4
Gain Plus Adv - 49.8 g
Progress Gold - 59. 4 g
Grow Adv eye q - 58.33 g
Anchor 1+ - 60.5 g

The higher the carbohydrates level, the higher the sugar content. This is true. GPA has the lowest carbo kaya naman hinde nga ito matamis (natikman ko na kasi, hehe). Enfagrow A+ has the highest carbo kaya naman matamis at marami din mommies dito sa forum na nagsasabing matamis nga ito.

^thanks sis! :) so for you sis, what is the best formula milk for 6-12 mos? I
 am planning to switch my daughters milk na kase eh. tia!

the truth is depende pa din yan sa magiging hiyang ng baby mo. ano ba milk niya ngaun? my son went from s-26 gold to Gain advance plus to Gain plus advance. naging hiyang niya naman kaya we tuloy tuloy lang. Nutrient wise kahit mahal Gain sulit talaga sya. pwede mu ito try, bile ka lang nun 180g ata then pag oki sa kanya tuloy tuloy mu na. if you have pedia, better pa din to ask them. may mga nababasa kasi ako dito na nacconstipate ang baby nila sa Gain kaya humahanap sila ibang milk. well, talagang may tendency na magconstipate kasi nga ang Gain has the lowest sugar level. un sa baby ko naman hinde naman niya naexperience na maconstipate kasi nagtatake din sya marami water.

basta always observe un mga magigng eeffect kay baby, talagang in depends on them pa din. un iba kahit bonna oki naman ang baby. Gain so far kasi is the best for me medyo nagmahal na nga lang naman sya. if it will be okay with you baby naku much better kasi u can be assure that u are give the best nutrition to your baby but ofcourse mas maganda pa din ang breastmilk. hehe. biglang bawi hanu. in case lang naman hinde mu na kaya magbreastfeed.

Good luck syo mommy. Hope you find what is really fit for your baby!

my son is 17 months na. he is already eating 3 full meals na nga at nagmmerienda pa talaga in between. malakas pa din sa milk e, 3-5 bottles of 6 oz a day. hehe.. malakas din sa tubig. ang gawin mo pala is try to add little sugar sa water ni baby para inumin niya. tapos pwede mo na sya turuang uminom sa glass. un anak ko natuto na uminom sa glass ng 7 months niya. plastic na baso muna o sippy cup pagamit mo baka sakali mas maappreciate nyang uminom ng tubig.

FYI lang po mga mommies, as much as possible po we have minimize if not totally avoid giving sugar to our babies...
My son is only 4months old but he consumes lots of water...

Oh okay, my baby's milk kasi is Similac,before Enfalac sya pero di niya nakasundo nagkakabag sya and constipated...
At first ayaw din niya ng water pero ngayon sya na mismo nahingi ng water, he can consume 3-5oz of water a day...

Happy parenting mga mommies and God bless to us and our babies and of course our hubbies as well!

I gave my eldest s26 when he was a baby until nag-promil kami then lumabas ang Bonakid so we shifted to it because halos the same ang taste nila - sweet and my eldest doesn't like other milk, wala raw lasa.

With my 2 other younger kids, Bonna sila from the start and my 2nd child is super taba. As in hebigatin talaga - I didn't know mataas ang sugar content ng Bonna until I saw some posts here. I think I have to have his blood sugar checked because he is really mataba. 5 kilos lang ang difference ng bigat niya sa kuya niya. His kuya is 7 and he is only 3 years old.

My youngest naman, normal lang pero malusog din.

hi mommy! my son started from s26 gold din. super chubby talaga sya and natakot nga kami kasi 2-3 kilos kung maggain every month. then nun nag6 months sya Gain na reco ni doc till now. true yan sabi mu na same taste lang bona at progress/promil kasi same nutrients sila except with DHA levels. kaya nga sabi nila kung malakas na kumain you can shift to bon=na kid na mas mura pa. kanina lang nakita ko na un RDA for 1-3 yrs old andun na din sa bona, lactum, nido for 1-3. kung may slight difference pwede na un makuha sa solid foods.

un lang mommy katulad ng naipost ko na dito same with progress gold ang carbo content niya kaya matamis, kaya naman pag binago milk ni baby magrereklamo syang walang lasa un other milk. Enfa grow has the highst carbo, next ang lactum then un progress gold/bonakid na. Pag maatas blood sugar niya makikita mo naman pag marami syang rashes tapos pag nagsugat hinde gumagaling. pero para maprevent nga better have it checked.

We're also planning to change the milk of our baby daughter minsan kase talaga kinakapos kami. Gain na siya eversince (similac nung newborn siya), pero minsan namamahalan talaga ko pagkinumpara ko siya sa ibang milk. Gusto ko talaga yung gain kase sobrang sik2 ng baby ko as in if you look at her tamang-tama lang yung built and height niya pero pagbinuhat mo ang bigat and super active. Ilang beses na namin pinagdiskusyunan yun ng husband ko, i proposed na baka pwede na palitan yung milk ni baby since 1 yr & 2 mos. na siya and naririnig ko rin sa mga office mates ko na nagchange na rin sila ng milk from expensive to cheaper one. Most of our friends shifted to Nido Jr., so if ever na magpapalit kami yun  siguro ittry namin, nice to know from sis momaye na 2nd to gain in having a lower content of carbo is Nido Jr. Pero yun nga still need to advise and consult with our pedia...para mas kampante kami if ever na magchange kami ng milk.

true yan mommy! yan din discussion namin ng husband ko. pero 17 months na baby namin and he almost eat naman all the food we give him. kahapon nga i am comparing all the milk available in the market for 1-3 years old and i found out pasok na pasok pala ang nido jr sa RDA for children 1-3. kaya naman nagdadalawang isip ako if i will choose Nido Jr. over Grow 1-3. nased kasi sa comparison ko mas mura un Nido Jr and hinde din naman papahuli sa nutrients. but then again, since january next year pa un sched doctor visit ng anak ko dun ko na lang tatanungin. for the mean time will stick with Gain at Grow mixture.

Kami naman sis momaye sa Dec 17 yung next visit sa pedia niya..  try ko iopen yun. kaya lang pala napapansin ko sa baby ko parang picky eater na..may times na malakas kumain minsan naman ilang subo lang o kaya sa umpisa atat na atat kumain tapos biglang  ayaw na.

Okay din ba mommy momaye yung Grow? kase Abbott din yung manufacturer niya same ng Gain kaya i'm thinking na baka hindi na rin siya manibago masyado. Try ko nga rin check yung Grow.

Dumaan din sa ganyang stage ang anak ko. Nun after ng first bday niya pansin ko parang naging pihikan. tapos after 1-2 months bumalik na appetite niya. don't worry busy lang sya magexplore sa paligid niya. wag na wag mo ifforce kumain si baby kasi stubborn talaga at first ang mga toddlers.

so far oki naman sya sa ginagawa naming mixing ng Gain and Grow. tama abbott din sya, medyo magkaiba lang silang texture. sana nga maging hiyang sya sa pure na Grow. but we will ask his pedia first before we completely shift. mahal na kasi Gain di ba. 200+ minahal, although may nakilala akong pwedeng kunan ng less than 100.

Salamat sa info mga mommies pero siguro naman pasok sa standards ang content ng lahat ng milk lalo na kung kilala yung brand diba? Like yung issue on carbohydrates and sugar, nagvavary talaga ang amount of sugar ng bawat milk brand pero di naman sila nagkakalayo diba? Ang difference lang pagdating sa sugar content is from 2-10g lang and from my experience, (Lactum mom kasi ako) mas masarap usually yung milk na mas lamang ng konti sa sugar. I talked to my pedia and friend who's a nutritionist and sabi nila na the amount of sugar nga daw isn't that much na nakakasama na siya. In fact, yung kakaunting dagdag na sugar is what makes the milk taste better and that's what made my kid want to drink his milk and actually develop an appetite for solids. Of course depende naman sa bata yun pero don't really fuss over the nitty-gritty of the milk's ingredients or nutritions facts. If you ask me, they wouldn't allow it to be sold in the market if it was bad for our kids :)

yes you have a point mommy. I really do not know why even if i know that leading milk brands passed RDA, hinde ko mabitawan ang GAIN. Im worrying kasi baka may magbago sa anak ko. that is why i will ask pa din his pedia before i completely switch him to the leading brand na obviously mas mura. kahit naman mahal ang milk kundi hiyang ng baby wala din. but how can we know kung magiging hiyang sa mas murang milk si baby kundi ittry di ba? un lang para sa peace of mind ko, ill ask his pedia first. im a worrier mom when it comes to my son kasi.  :)

The same principle applies with shopping for food, milk and other items our kids need - it is good advice not to scrimp. This does not mean, however, that one should buy the most expensive brand in the market. The trick is to research and educate yourself. Know when it is good to cut back and when it isnít. Sometimes what may seem like a good buy at the start isnít in the long run or, vice versa.

I don't think there's much difference between expensive milk and affordable milk.

My brother-in-law works in Mead Johnson, and he told me na ang diff lang is pinapatakan nila ng DFA or some sort of vitamins yung A+ kaya mas mahal. Pero more or less, same formulation lang naman. In my own opinion, di naman tatalino or magiging mas healthy ang baby based from extra minerals / ingredients ng milk alone.

Just my two cents lang. ;)

IMO as a pharmacist, wala po difference ang mahal na gatas at murang gatas... Parepareho lang po na cow's milk yan, it is actually a trade secrets from milk manufacturers na may mga formula kuno na pampatalino etc etc pero they are all the same, they just needed to market their product very well... Lahat po ng gatas nutritious yan sa baby, hindi naman sa mura o mahal nakikita yan o nararamdaman yung pagbigat o pagtaba ng baby... Check nyo un labels, almost the same, varies lang on some formulations but if you will check it carefully may variations man it still compensates with the nutritional value na approved ng bfad.. So wag na po magworry, mahal o murang gatas pareho lang po.....

I used to supervise and ka's milk formulas in different milk companies and i assure you all na parepareho lang po :)

I agree with you sis just_memom.... Dapat talaga you have to consult your pedia especially kung may specific milk na dapat ipainom kay baby or for special conditions.....  With my case kasi, im a pharmacist and with experience on milk formulation in different milk companies so i took the responsibility :)

So parang bang generic and branded medicine ito? :-)

The 'generic' or less expensive milk satisfies the minimum requirement of BFAD.
The 'branded' or more expensive milk gives much more than the requirement.

Just like other mothers here, I check the label. The more nutrients they supposedly contain, the higher the price.

Syempre exemption dito yung specialized milk formulas for very sensitive babies and premature babies.

I was just thinking, if I buy the less expensive ones then add nutrients to my child's diet through vitamin supplements, would that be enough already? Yung tipong ipapantay ko don sa nutrients ng expensive milk yung difference niya don sa kukunin kong less expensive milk? Tama po ba yon, mommies?

^Honestly, trade secret po ng milk company's yung pagformulate ng milk with dha , ara, etc etc but the fact is lahat ng milk meron nyan, its just how they market their product, when i do quality controls of milk, all of them are the same lang talaga, mas kilalang brand mas mahal esp kapag controlled nila ang market at maganda advertisement kasi jan nacocompensate yung ginagastos nila sa production, yung hindi kilalang milk, mas mura kase they only market thru their respective medreps... Also, all of them are cow's milk, enhancementlang ginagawa ng manufacturers.... Binibigyan din natin ng vitamins mgababy natin so it compensates with all the nutrients na kailangan ng bata... Hindi naman natin kailangan maging super metikuloso pagdating sa baby kasi the more na tayo ang sensitive mas magiging lalong sensitive ang bata paglaki at tayo mamomorblema ... Opinion ko lang hehe

Hi Mommies,

Ako naman po before pa manganak nag basa basa na ng mga good na milk...so far ok naman si baby with Enfa series...Enfapro A+ na siya...I agree with other moms naman dito na if you can afford to buy expensive milk you go for it as long as hiyang kay baby...first time mom kasi ako so I opt to really invest for a good milk..di naman mataba ang anak ko pero siksik...kasi for her age nung last check up niya, 8kg na siya at 7 months..target daw is for her to be 10kg at the age of 1...so hopefully she can make it..looking forward sa check up this month :)

based on my research mommies,

cheaper milks sugar content is higher than the sugar content of expensive milks.
meaning, kaya nakakapagpataba yung cheaper milks because of sugar but
definitely yung nutrients is not enough unlike expensive milks, tama lang ang sugar
complete pa ang nutrients.

if you can afford to buy naman expensive milks, not so expensive naman basta kaya ng budget
dun na tayo mommies. for our babies health naman eh.

Isa pang difference aside sa price ay yung amoy sa baby, medyo maasim ang amoy (notice ko lang po) if cheaper milk, unlike the expensive one.

Pansin ko din. Pag cheap ang gatas maasim ang amoy ng bata.

Maraming sugar ang cheaper na gatas kaya madaling tumaba ang baby at may gana silang uminom pero sa nutrients content, low ito kumpara sa expensive one. Ang expensive na gatas ay may DHA and ARA which can be found in breast milk hindi rin ito substitute sa breastfeed pero mas malapit ang nutients content ng expensive kaysa sa cheaper. If nagbreastfeed ka at gustong sabayan ng formula, ayos na ang cheaper milk pero kung pure formula c baby dun ka sa mas maging healthy c baby kahit di mataba basta sakto lang ang timbang sa edad. Di rin kasi basihan ang pagiging healthy ang mataba, mas prone pa nga sa sakit o allergies.
