Breastfeeding and Supplementing with Infant Formula

Breastfeeding moms often wonder if it is acceptable to supplement a breastfed baby's diet with infant formula. The answer is yes. Some moms turn to supplementation when they return to work; other moms may experience difficulty pumping or producing enough milk as their infants grow older. In many instances, moms simply do not want to give up nursing their babies entirely. This also gives family members, friends, babysitters, and other caregivers an opportunity to occasionally bottle feed.

As you are aware, breastfeeding is recommended for infant feeding by healthcare professionals and leading organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics. Infant formula is the only safe alternative to mother's milk that provides a sole source of nutrition for healthy growth and development.

New Parent's Choice™ Supplementation Infant Formula is specially designed for breastfeeding moms who choose to introduce formula. Parent's Choice™ Supplementation Formula provides complete nutrition for your baby's first year and can be used interchangeably with breast milk.

Supplementation Features Ingredients for Brain and Eye Development

Our Supplementation Infant Formula features a blend of nutrients that support your baby's growth and development from birth to 12 months of age. These nutrients are found in mother's milk:

  • DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid fat that helps support mental and visual development
  • Lutein, an antioxidant found in the eye
  • Vitamin E

Parent's Choice™ Supplementation also features prebiotics which may support your baby's immune system and digestive health. Supplementation is also formulated with antioxidant vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, C, E, and Zinc for immune support.

Parent's Choice Non-GMO Infant Formulas

Parent's Choice has introduced Non-GMO infant formulas for customers who prefer non-GMO products. Parent's Choice Non-GMO infant formulas are produced using ingredients that have not been genetically engineered and are available as store brands at your favorite stores.

A genetically modified organism (GMO) is a plant or animal that has been altered using genetic engineering to produce a desirable characteristic. Genetic engineering involves methods different from traditional breeding techniques. A few state governments and many consumers support laws that mandate labels disclose when a food product contains genetically engineered ingredients.

We use the word "Non-GMO" as it is most broadly used in the United States. When we say Parent's Choice Formula is Non-GMO, we mean it is produced using ingredients that have not been genetically engineered.

Although "GMO" means genetically modified organism, oftentimes it is not how the acronym is used by consumers in the United States. This is because "GMO" is often used to describe products that are manufactured without intentionally added organisms.

We consider an infant formula to be "Non-GMO" if it uses ingredients from crops that do not have a genetically engineered version in the marketplace or, if an ingredient could come from a crop that has a genetically engineered version, that ingredient comes from the version of the crop that has not been genetically engineered.

We believe transparency is critical. Even though we take measures to eliminate genetically engineered material in our ingredients, trace amounts of genetically engineered materials might be present in our products. We disclose that trace levels may be present in finished product from process sources and manufacturing environments. Additionally, some methods used to obtain ingredients (such as fermentation) may involve genetically modified microorganisms or genetically engineered substrate.

Animal feed in the United States is often genetically engineered. This may mean some dairy ingredients used in the manufacture of non-GMO infant formulas may originate from cows fed some feed containing genetically engineered ingredients. This is common among many dairy-based non-GMO foods on the market today.

* As used in this website, Non-GMO means the ingredients were not genetically engineered.
