Best Organic Infant Formula for Breastfed Babies in 2020

February 6, 2020

Making the switch from breast feeding to formula was a hard decision for me, and it ended up being a lot more emotional than I planned. Losing the personal connection of breast feeding was hard enough, but I was also stressed out about choosing the right formula. The last thing I want is for my baby to consume low-quality or potentially harmful products, so I decided to look at the best organic infant formula options available.

When I first started looking, I was honestly surprised at how many options there were, but then I discovered that not all “organic” formulas are truly organic. It took some searching to find trusted brands and products.
