Infant Formula: Safety Do’s and Don’ts

  • Never dilute formula. Adding more water or other liquids to infant formula can be dangerous and even life-threatening for babies.
  • Avoid homemade formula: Babies fed homemade infant formula have been hospitalized due to hypocalcemia (low calcium).
  • Do not give your baby alternative milk products. Plant-based milks (almond, soy, oat, etc.) are often low in protein and minerals.
  • Changing your formula brand is OK: For most babies, if their regular brand of formula is not currently available, it is OK to substitute with a similar version.
  • Talk to your doctor: Families should consult their medical provider if their babies or children require a special type of formula

Talk with your provider if you have any questions.
