Some cows produce milk with the A1 protein and some produce milk with the A2 protein. Both proteins are a naturally occurring in cow’s milk but A2 has a slightly different protein composition when compared to the regular milk sold in stores. The digestion process of the A2 casein is easier on the tummy and may possibly be a healthier alternative than regular milk for some people.
Nature's One® is proud to offer the only toddler formula that contains USDA Certified Organic DHA naturally sourced from egg yolks of eggs laid by organic hens only fed an organic diet. Other organic and conventional formulas contain life'sDHA™ oils, which are controversial ingredients extracted from algae and fungus using neurotoxic hexane solvent and treated with acid, and bleach. This product is OU certified Kosher.
Breast milk is made up of both phospholipids and triglycerides. All other organic formulas only contain triglycerides formulated with vegetable oil blends and DSM's life’sDHA® but are void of phospholipids. Nature's One® believes adding a phospholipid to formula achieves a more natural fatty acid profile. Phospholipids are known to support brain development.
In an effort to limit the use of soy ingredients due to current organic sourcing concerns, Baby's Only® Formulas and PediaSmart® Beverages now contain canola oil as a fat source in the products' fat blend. Canola oil is an excellent source of unsaturated fats and essential fatty acids that must be consumed in the daily diet to ensure good growth and development. Our organic, NON-GMO canola oil is FDA approved for infant formula use and is a good substitute for soybean oil in ensuring your child gets the appropriate balance of unsaturated fatty acids and essential fatty acids.
Why does the packaging say "Toddler Formula" from http://newbornclasses.blogspot.com/2010/08/babys-only-organic-formula-for-newborns.html :
After many inquiries into whether or not Baby's Only Organic's Toddlers formula was safe for a newborn, I sent an official query to Baby's Only. Here is the response.
Many thanks for your recent inquiry and also your interest in our Baby’s Only Organic® formulas. Regarding the use of our Baby’s Only Organic® formulas during infancy, similar to other commercially available infant formulas, our Baby’s Only Organic® formulas provide the correct balance of proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals needed to support normal growth and development of full term, healthy infants. No extra dilution is needed. Nothing needs to be added to make the formula more “complete” when prepared according to label instructions. It is because of our strong position on breastfeeding that we prefer to maintain a “toddler” status, thereby not encouraging mothers to use our product when breast milk is available. Thus, we state that “Baby’s Only Organic® is not intended for infants under 1-year of age unless specified by a healthcare professional.”
However, we also recognize that long term breast feeding or exclusive breastfeeding is not feasible for every mother. There are many fine and very personal reasons, such as you mentioned, that may necessitate the use of a formula. In those cases, we are happy to provide an alternative. Therefore, we formulated all of Baby’s Only Organic® formulas to provide the same nutrition as popular infant formulas. Baby’s Only Organic® formulas meet the nutritional composition requirements of the Infant Formula Act and the Academy of Pediatrics’ guidelines on nutritional content for an infant formula.
The U.S Infant Formula Act requirements and also the Academy of Pediatrics guidelines on nutrient composition of an infant formula specify ranges for most nutrients including vitamins and minerals. As noted previously, Baby’s Only Organic® formulas all meet the requirements. You will note in our comparison charts, shown be clicking on the links below, that all infant formulas are similar in overall nutrient composition because of these requirement and guidelines. The differences in formulas are mainly based on the type and source of ingredients. As you know, we take great pride in our organic ingredients. Please see the following links for nutritional comparisons of Baby’s Only Organic® to other popular brands.
