If you are looking for the best formula milk for your baby who is from 6-12 months old, you've come to the right place. Scientists and medical experts have spent years developing high-quality formula milks that will provide your baby with the nutrition she needs. Baby formula makers in the United States label their products for specific age groups while European baby formula products use development stages. US infant formulas are designed for infants from birth to 1 year of age, whereas European infant formulas are staged, 0–6 and 6–12 months ( Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 2019 ).

Although the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians recommend breast milk for optimal infant nutrition, many parents still choose formula as an acceptable alternative.  The wide variety of available formulas is confusing to parents and physicians, but formulas can be classified according to three basic criteria: caloric density, carbohydrate source, and protein composition. Most infants require a term formula with iron. There is insufficient evidence to recommend supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid or arachidonic acid.  Soy formulas are indicated for congenital lactase deficiency and galactosemia, but are not recommended for colic because of insufficient evidence of benefit.  Hypoallergenic formulas with extensively hydrolyzed protein are effective for the treatment of milk protein allergy and the prevention of atopic disease in high-risk infants.  Anti Reflux Formulas decrease emesis and regurgitation, but have not been shown to
