HealthDay News
Updated: Nov 7th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- Infants need a balance of nutrients to grow properly and be healthy, says the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Although homemade formulas may seem healthy or inexpensive, they may not meet your baby's nutritional needs.

The academy mentions some do's and don'ts of homemade baby formula:

  • Do choose recipes that have been reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  • Don't feed your infant milk made from very young cows or milk substitutes.
  • Don't use formulas imported from other countries.
  • Don't add excess water to powdered formula or non-concentrated liquid formula.
