That said, it's also important to educate yourself in order to have a better discussion with your doctor. Our guide to formula milks will help you to choose the right type for your baby. Check out this comprehensive guide on baby milk powders, before you decide on which formula is right for your baby and to help you make sense of the many options out there in Malaysia.

As a summary, there are three different types of formula:
  • cow’s milk-based formula
  • hydrolysed protein formula
  • soya-based formula
It’s most likely your baby can have cow’s milk-based formula, unless there’s a health or dietary reason why she can’t.

You might also come across the terms 'stage 1, 2 and 3' for baby milk powders: 
  • Stage 1: Sometimes labelled simply as “infant milk powder”, this is suitable for babies from birth to 6 months.
  • Stage 2: Also known as “follow on milk powder”, Stage 2 is for babies from 6 months old and up.
  • Stage 3: Contains more nutrients and calories, for toddlers 1 year old and up.
In Malaysia, all infant formula is regulated by the Food Regulations 1985, under the Food Act 1983. In Malaysia, Lazada offers guarantee on milk formula products. If you have bought a milk formula powder with the guarantee badge (below) but you think that the product is not authentic or has less than 7 months away from expiry (short expiry product), you are entitled to a 300% reimbursement (3 times your money back).
