Nature's One Baby's Only - Organic Dairy Based Iron Fortified Toddler Formula - 12.7 oz.

Natures One Babys Only Organic Dairy-based Toddler Formula contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA), the fatty acid precursors for Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Arachidonic acid (ARA). DHA and ARA have been clinically shown to support mental and visual development by concentrating in the gray matter of the brain and in the retina of the eye. Baby’s Only Organic is scientifically formulated to provide the necessary nutrients supporting normal growth and development, including essential fatty acids. Baby’s Only Organic is the only formula made with certified organic ingredients. Organic is your assurance the ingredients are not genetically modified or engineered. All certified organic ingredients are grown and processed without harsh chemical pesticides and processing aids. Baby’s Only Organic is also formulated for easier digestion and provides complete nutrition for a baby not found in goat or cow milk.

Baby’s Only Organic Dairy Formula Strives to be the Very Best Formula

Organic Dairy Formula
Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula was introduced more than a decade ago as the very first organic formula on the U.S. market. This formula is scientifically formulated to meet the nutritional needs of a healthy, growing baby. When formula is required, healthcare professionals most often recommend a dairy-based formula. Dairy protein naturally contains amino acids and carbohydrate that are more similar to human breast milk. For babies with a lactose sensitivity or milk allergy, doctors may recommend Baby’s Only Organic Lactose Free or Soy Formulas.

Quality Organic Nutrition
Nature’s One recognizes the importance of providing your baby with the highest quality formula possible. Nature's One company sets its ingredient standard beyond “organic” by sourcing only the best organic ingredients, including milk from organic family farms. Parents should be aware that other organic formulas use less desirable ingredients like organic corn syrup, organic palm olein oil and hexane processed DHA. Rest assured that Baby’s Only Organic will never contain these ingredients.

The Best Organic Start
Breast milk is the best organic choice. Baby’s Only Organic is labeled a toddler formula to promote breast milk as the best first option. Following breast milk, parents can continue providing organic nutrition using Baby’s Only Organic formula. For a baby less than 12-months, use as directed by a healthcare professional.

Nutrients Required for Baby’s Diet
Nature’s One purchases its organic milk from cooperatives supplied by family-owned farms that do not treat their cows with any hormones or antibiotics. You can be assured that the cows raised on these farms graze in organic pastures. The result of organic pastures is healthy cows and high quality organic milk. The Cornucopia Institute gave Nature’s One organic milk suppliers an “excellent” or a “4 cow rating”. Learn more about Cornucopia Institute’s research on organic milks. Cornucopia’s Organic Dairy Report

Nature's One organic commitment assures only organic and natural ingredients with no artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, genetically modified ingredients, chemical processing like hexane solvents, pesticides or added growth hormones. Baby's Only Organic formulas are manufactured in the U.S.A. No milk protein or dairy derivatives are purchased from China.

Why should infants not drink cow’s milk?
The nutrient composition of cow’s milk is specific to a baby calf and not to a human baby. Cow’s milk has a higher level of protein to meet the rapid growth needs of calves. This level, called the renal solute load, is too high for a human baby and could overload a baby’s kidneys resulting in serious health problems. It is harder to digest and could also cause intestinal blood loss. Cow’s milk contains butterfat which is a very saturated fat and also more difficult to digest. As is commonly known, animal saturated fat contributes to heart disease. Butterfat also does not provide the appropriate amounts or balance of essential fatty acids. Although the carbohydrate in cow’s milk is lactose, the same type of carbohydrate in mother’s milk, the level is lower than in breast milk. Cow’s milk is also deficient in iron, which could result in iron deficiency anemia. It is also lacking in copper, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

Human breast milk is the ideal food for a human baby. For those infants who cannot or do not receive breast milk, the first choice of formula is a dairy-based formula, like Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula, made from cow’s milk that has been modified to better suit the nutrient needs of a baby. Human milk serves as the model for the composition of an infant formula, but formulas at present still do not contain many of the unique compositional features of breast milk. Breast milk contains hormones, immunologic agents, essential fatty acids, and enzymes to help with digestion.

Modifications that are now made in cow’s milk to make an infant formula closer in nutrient composition to breast milk include:

  1. Reducing the protein content. Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula is made with organic non-fat dried cow’s milk at appropriate levels for an infant or toddler.
  2. Replacing the butterfat in cow’s milk, which is highly saturated, to a proper mixture of vegetable oils that provide the appropriate balance of saturated fats, monounsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats. Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula is made with organic high oleic sunflower oil, organic coconut oil, and organic soybean oil. This blend also provides the correct balance of the essential fatty acids linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid needed by the body to make DHA and ARA. These fatty acids are important for brain function and visual acuity.
  3. Adding appropriate carbohydrates to bring the total carbohydrate content closer to mother’s milk. The carbohydrate composition of Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula consists of 65% organic brown rice syrup and 35% naturally occurring lactose which comes in with the organic non-fat dried cow’s milk.
  4. Adding some vitamins and minerals in the appropriate amounts needed by an infant to grow and develop.

Although human milk and cow’s milk contain cholesterol, formulas at present do not contain cholesterol until additional research is done to document the safety and efficacy of doing so. We do not add cholesterol to the blend of organic oils we use to meet the fatty acid requirements and they do not naturally contain cholesterol. There is currently no recommendation on the amount of cholesterol to be fed during infancy. In fact, the Academy of Pediatrics has not issued any statement regarding whether cholesterol should be added to infant formula. Cholesterol is made by the body in the liver and the intestinal tract and infants have the ability to manufacture amounts needed to support growth and development.
Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula contains all of the nutrients in the appropriate amounts needed for an infant and toddler to grow and develop and is preferred over cow’s milk during early childhood. Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula fully complies with the nutrient composition requirements of the U. S. Infant Formula Act enacted by the government to ensure that infants receive safe and appropriate infant formulas. Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula also meets the guidelines of the Academy of Pediatrics on nutrient composition of infant formulas.

If a parent is considering use of whole cow’s milk because of difficulties with formula or for cost reasons, this may signal a greater importance to seek guidance and receive proper nutritional advice appropriate for an infant. Consult the infant’s healthcare professional for advice.

Why should infants not drink goat’s milk?
In the United States, goat’s milk is gaining popularity because goats eat less and occupy less grazing space than cows and also because goat’s milk is thought to be more easily digested and less allergenic than cow’s milk. Although goat’s milk may theoretically have some advantages over cow’s milk when it comes to allergies, scientific studies have not found a decreased incidence of allergy with goat’s milk.1 Just like cow’s milk has a nutrient profile needed to support a growing calf, the composition of goat’s milk meets the needs of a growing goat kid, but not that of a human baby.

Goat’s milk has a slightly higher protein content and more potassium, phosphorus, sodium and chloride than cow’s milk. These amounts (known as the renal solute load) found in both goat’s milk and cow’s milk are higher than found in human milk and could overload an infant’s developing kidneys and result in serious health problems. Goat’s milk acidosis has been reported in the scientific literature and is most likely a result of the high protein level. 2 There are questions too about the possible insufficient levels of the amino acids tryptophan and cysteine in goat’s milk. 3 Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins needed to make body cells and organs.

The fat in goat’s milk is lower in essential fatty acids than cow’s milk. The types of fats in goat’s milk differ from both cow’s milk and human milk. Goat’s milk butterfat, just like butterfat from cow’s milk, is an animal fat that is more difficult to digest than the fat in human milk. As is commonly known, saturated animal fat can contribute to heart disease. Goat’s milk does not contain the types or amounts of saturated fat, monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat of human milk. The right proportion of these fats is necessary to ensure brain, organ, and tissue development. Fat is also used for energy to fuel a baby’s growth, along with carbohydrates.

The type of carbohydrate in goat’s milk is lactose, similar to human milk and cow’s milk, but like cow’s milk it is lower than the amount of lactose found in human milk. Carbohydrates are needed for energy to fuel growth during early childhood.

Goat’s milk is deficient in iron, folic acid and Vitamin B6, all nutrients needed during early childhood to prevent anemia.Goat’s milk should not be used as a substitute for an infant formula or as a supplement to breast milk. Like cow’s milk, goat’s milk can cause intestinal irritation and anemia.

Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula is based on modified cow’s milk and has been formulated to ensure the correct balance of all nutrients for an infant. Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula fully complies with the nutrient composition requirements of the U.S. Infant Formula Act enacted by the government to ensure that infants receive safe and appropriate infant formulas. Baby’s Only Organic dairy formula also meets the guidelines of the Academy of Pediatrics on nutrient composition of infant formulas.

Infant formulas are designed to be as close to mother’s milk as possible to provide the appropriate nutrition for babies during the all important first year of life. Of course, mother’s milk is always the preferred feeding and infant formulas are available for those situations when breast milk is unavailable. The appropriate amounts and balance of nutrients in the first year are critical to good growth and development.If a parent is considering use of goat’s milk because baby is having difficulty with formulas, this may signal a greater importance to seek guidance and receive proper nutritional advice appropriate for an infant. Consult the infant’s healthcare professional for advice.

When should my baby switch from formula to milk?
Baby’s Only Organic is an iron-fortified nutritional formula that provides the essential vitamins, minerals, protein, essential fatty-acids and carbohydrates needed to support your baby's continued growth and development. Baby’s Only Organic is recommended for baby's 12-months or older. For use with infants less than 12-months of age, please consult a health care provider (i.e. pediatrician, nutritionist, dietitian, homeopath, naturopath, etc).
For mothers who are breast feeding a baby older than 12-months of age, Baby’s Only Organic can be used to supplement breast milk or substitute breast milk feedings as needed. Baby’s Only Organic can also be reconstituted according to package directions and used to mix cereals for the baby at any age.
Baby’s Only Organic has been formulated according to the nutritional requirements as defined in the law called the Infant Formula Act. It is nutritionally comparable to other formulas on the market.

Nature's One:
Nature’s One introduced the first organic baby formula over a decade ago. Since that time, the company has established an excellent reputation among parents & healthcare professionals and continues to be the leader in organic pediatric medical foods.

Suggested Use

Back to top of page

Toddlers
Nature’s One recommends that parents resist switching their baby's diet from breast milk to milk once s/he reaches that 12-month benchmark. Rather, offer Baby's Only Organic as a beverage throughout the day to provide the energy and nutrients needed to support an active toddler. Cow and goat milk fail to provide the complete nutrition and critical fatty acids as found in Baby's Only Organic Toddler Formulas. Baby's Only Organic is recommended up to 3-years of age. For toddler’s who need added calories or have developed taste buds and require more flavor, consider offering PediaSmart.

Infants
For infants less than 12-months, use Baby's Only Organic as directed by a healthcare professional. Nature's One believes it is best to consult a healthcare professional before making any changes to an infant's diet. While acknowledging a baby's medical history, a healthcare professional is in the best position to discuss nutritional options that meet your baby's specific needs. Baby's Only Organic meets the nutritional requirements of the FDA's Infant Formula Act. We suggest that you print our nutritional comparison chart and present it to your doctor.

Supplementing Breast Milk
Occasionally mothers who are breast feeding need temporary help supplementing their breast milk. Baby's Only Organic can be used to supplement breast milk as directed by a healthcare professional. For all ages, mix according to label instructions to ensure appropriate nutrition.

Mixing Cereals
When mixing cereals or other foods for your baby, Baby's Only Organic is perfectly suited at any age. Just follow the mixing instructions on the label, and then stir into cereal or food to achieve desired consistency.

I had been buying his product from the manufacturer and then I accidentally found out about LuckyVitamin. To my surprise, I found the price lower and the product identical to what I had been purchasing. The delivery date and emails I received as my order worked its way through the system were better than the manufacturer's also.

After doing quite a lot of research, we decided that the Baby's Only formula is one of the better options for formula once my little girls stopped breastfeeding. Lucky vitamins has great prices, free shipping on cases and they packages always came quickly.

By Candice (Cleveland , OK )

Love this alternative formula! So much better than the others out there! It made our little one a little constipated so we just added .5-1 ounce of prune juice in her first bottle of each day and no longer have that problem. I will be continuing with Baby's Only for the rest of her Bottle drinking days!
