Baby Formula Powder
Good nutrition is essential for helping babies grow up healthy and strong. Giving your baby the nutritional support has never been easier or more convenient. At Walgreens, we offer a full line of baby formula powder. These formula powders contain the balanced nutritional ingredients your baby needs for good health.
Regardless of your baby's age, there's a balanced formula for each particular stage in life. Newborn babies have special nutritional requirements. Good nutrition immediately after birth gets your baby off to a good start and sets the stage for future health. Special baby formula powders for newborns are enriched with a full array of nutrients, ones your baby needs for a healthy brain, digestive health, strong bones and immune support. Plus, these powders are formulated to be like breast milk.
Baby formula powders that supply a baby's needs during the first year of life are also available. These formulas contain ingredients such as DHA and lutein, which are important for brain and eye health. Enriched with vitamins and minerals, these formula powders are made to resemble the composition of natural breast milk. As your baby grows and changes, the formula powder you feed them will change too. Each formula provides the nutrients they need to reach their developmental milestones at a particular stage in life.
Supplemental Baby Formula
Once baby starts eating solid foods, supplemental baby powder formulas are available. These powders help ensure your baby is getting the nutritional support they need for optimal growth and development.
Reducing Spit Ups
Help is available for babies who have sensitive digestive systems and spit up frequently after a feeding. Choose from special infant formula powders made for babies with sensitive tummies. Pediatricians often recommend changing a baby's formula when they have this problem. These formulas contain the nutrition a growing baby needs but are made to be gentler on the digestive tract.
Solutions for Fussiness
Does your baby suffer from gas and fussiness after feeding? Specially-formulated formula powders made with a protein blend that's easy to digest provides digestive support for babies with sensitive tummies. Some of these formulas are free of milk and lactose for babies who have problems breaking down these dietary components.
Solutions for Medical Issues
Medical formula powders provide a way for babies with digestive issues that limit absorption and multiple food allergies to get the nutrition they need. These formulas are enriched with extra vitamins and minerals. Some contain prebiotic fiber to support digestive health. Your baby's doctor can tell you whether a medical formula powder is right for your child. Other medical formula powders provide safe nutrition for children and adults that have a medical condition called phenylketonuria. These formulas lack the amino acid phenylalanine.
How to Choose a Baby Formula
With so many options, choosing a baby formula powder may seem daunting. Talk to your pediatrician or health care provider and read the directions carefully to be sure the one you're considering is right for your baby or toddler.
