Different Baby Milk formula Comparison India

Deciding infant/baby milk powder in India can be a big task as most of them comes in 400g packet and none of the brand provides free sample to decide. We can divide these milk powder into two categories with or without DHA+ARA. Cost also plays a major role as most brand with DHA/ARA comes in ₹500+ price range while without DHA+ARA are priced below ₹400 mostly.

Also we have Similac Advance & Dexolac premium which command premium price even with missing DHA+ ARA. It’s more of a marketing ploy to confuse customers with confusing product name. Lastly we have Farex which is cashing on it’s old brand name with missing DHA+ARA. Special mention for our own desi Amul milk spray powder with 20% added sugar which I think should be refrained from naming it as a baby powder.

  • If you want best for Baby and money is not a problem then opt for Aptamil.
  • If tight on budget then Dexolac normal (don’t get confused by premium)
  • If you want something in between then Nan 1 Pro is best bet.

Also it is recommended to change Formula powder if the baby is having problem but do consult a pediatrician before proceeding.

Major manufacturer of milk formula producer in India.
