There seems to be so much buzz about food allergies and food sensitivity lately, unfortunately, this is not a trend and many really do suffer from these growing conditions, including our little ones.
It is important to clarify the difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance. The reaction of a food allergy is caused by the immune system and should not be taken lightly, while a food intolerance (such as for instance lactose intolerance) is usually triggered by the digestive system and can be easily avoided switching to the right food.
Food allergies reactions can come in any shape and form such as swollen tongue or throat, skin rash and trouble breathing. Should you or your baby suffer from any of these symptoms please seek medical advice immediately.
As parents, especially new parents, we are always very aware of any little sign that our baby is not feeling well and sometimes something as simple as a hiccup can cause concerns. So what happens if your baby isn't tolerating its formula?
If your baby...
….this might be a sign that it might not tolerate its formula.
If your baby is showing any of the above signs, please talk to your pediatrician to find out the exact cause before switching to another formula.
We have had many parents reach out to us with the exact same problems, often referred to us by their pediatrician and the good news is that after switching to Holle, Lebenswert or HiPP Organic Baby Formulas almost all (to not say all) symptoms disappeared in a few feedings.
Though there are many reasons why your baby is not tolerating its formula, most of the times this is due to the ingredients in some of the so-called "organic baby formulas". While all parents try to feed their baby the best formula available, sometimes they are unaware of what harmful ingredients actually lay hidden in the baby formula.
Some of these ingredients are “Genetically Modified Ingredients” (GMO), DHA and ARA, Sucrose, Soy, Dioxin, Melanin and even Carrageenan. See our article The importance of becoming a label detective for more information.
All of these ingredients can seriously harm your baby’s health and most of the times cause intolerance. Unfortunately, formulas that include all or some of these ingredients are still widely sold in the US, even labelled "Organic", while in Europe all of these toxins and ingredients are strictly forbidden. Shocking, we know! But don't worry, no matter if your baby is not tolerating its formula or you're simply worried about your baby's health, switching your baby to any of our organic baby formulas will not only help your baby's digestion but also nourish it to perfect development.
