There are a few organic formulas on the market. I chose Earth’s Best baby formula because it’s comparable to conventional. It makes me feel better knowing that it’s FDA certified, but my feelings about the FDA aren’t exactly warm and fuzzy. It meets the needs of what I need it to do, and eases the guilt by a fraction, knowing that I’m not giving her added pesticides or growth hormones.
The price is pretty steep. I order it from Amazon through their subscription service to save a little bit of cash, but overall, if you need to formula feed and want to choose organic, you will pay for it. They say it’s easily digestible and I don’t know if that’s true. My daughter “goes”, but I prefer the breastmilk variety poop (yes, I just said poop) over the formula variety. It smells like DHA and, and she doesn’t exactly look comfortable when she does go. The taste (and yes, I did taste it), to me is pretty disgusting, again, I can taste the DHA in it, which I don’t really find appealing, especially knowing that breastmilk does not taste the same, but my daughter doesn’t seem to have a problem with it. I noticed that she does take her time eating it, unlike her need to inhale a pumped bottle. Go figure.
Overall, it’s not a bad formula. It is comparable nutritionally to the big brands out there, and is a nice option for those that don’t have a choice in the matter, but want to feed their baby organic formula. The other plus is that it has no sucrose, like other brands. The con is that it’s expensive.
