All of these formulas offer an optimal source of nutrition for infants. Since we carry only specialty formulas, they help address one of three particular needs.
Three Specialty Infant Formulas
We carry infant formulas that address three needs:
All infant formulas will nourish babies, but specialty infant formulas have ingredients that may differ based on what need the formula is addressing.
Allergy Infant Formula
For infants who have severe food allergy, a hypoallergenic formula will be needed. We carry many different types of allergy infant formulas.
Brands such as Nutramigen, Enfamil, and Similac offer hypoallergenic baby formulas that are targeted for babies who have cow’s milk allergies and other sensitivities. They can help babies from feeling discomfort after feeding, Many parents who assume their child has colic later learn it was an allergy instead.
Metabolic Infant Formula
A baby with a metabolic disorder cannot break down food correctly. Some of the more common disorders that lead to babies needing metabolic infant formula include Phenylketonuria (PKU). Babies with this condition can’t metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine, which is found in breast milk and cow’s milk. They may show symptoms like seizures, hyperactivity, skin rashes, small head size, or others.
If your child is diagnosed with PKU, they will need a specialty infant formula like the ones we carry.
The infant formulas we carry for babies with a metabolic disorder include:
- Pregestimil DHA &ARA
- TYROS 1
- Phenyl-Free 1
- BCAD 1
- HCY 1
Premature Infant Formula
Premature babies require additional nutrients to help support their development and growth. That’s why we carry the infant formula, Enfamil EnfaCare NeuroPro, which is a milk-based infant formula for babies who were born prematurely or with low birth weight. It is typically used for the baby’s first year or life and supports catch-up growth.
There are many infant formulas on the market, and we make sure at Insurance Covered Baby Formula to carry the most popular infant formula brands on the market.
