Anyway, I finally got discontented with Lactum 1-3 as it seems to me that Sofie isn't gaining weight and because of that I feel that Sofie isn't getting the nutrition she needs. This probably has less to do with gaining weight, but I still want to see Sofie looking healthy and cute. lol
So from my (informal) "research", I learned that more and more mothers are switching to Nido Junior. I don't really know the reason, but there has been a lot of positive feedback with it. I've been giving Sofie Nido Junior for a month now, and she is doing well with it.
I always check the ingredients of the products I buy or in this case for milk I check its nutrient value. Tonight, since I'm left here without any work to do, I decided to compare the Nutrient value of both milk, since I still have the box of Lactum 1-3 and Nido Junior.
This table shows the nutrient value per 100g powder.
The ingredients listed are
Lactum 1-3: Whole Milk Powder, Corn, Syrup Solids, Sucrose, Non-fat Milk Powder, blend of Inulin and Oligofructose, Minerals (Calcium Carbonate, Copper Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Magnesium Phosphate, Manganese Sulfate, Potassium Iodide and Zinc Sulfate), encapsulated DHA Marine Oil Powder, Vitamins (Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Biotin, Calcium Pantothenate, Cholecalciferol, Folic Acid, Niacinamide, Phytonadione, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Hydrochloride, and Vitamin A Palmitate) and Taurine
Nido Junior: Skimmed Milk, Vegetable Oils (may contain one or more of the following: Corn Oil, Rapeseed Oil or Palm Olein) Corn Syrup, Sucrose, Milk Fat, Lactose, Honey, Oligofructose, Minerals (Calcium Carbonate, Ferrous Acid, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin K), Taurine, Lactobacillus Culture, Vanilline and Bifidus Culture.
Judging from the table I have made, it seems that Lactum is a better choice, but there are still other nutrients that are just in Nido Junior and some of of its nutrients has much more value than Lactum 1-3. Anyway, Im not good at this so you be the judge (or maybe let the nutritionist or your pediatrician be the judge.. lol).
Mom's out there which do you think is better? Lactum 1-3 or Nido Junior?
