We generally recommend a transition period of 7-14 days to allow your baby’s digestive system to completely adjust to a new formula, even if you are simply moving to another stage of the same formula brand. Gas, constipation, and fussiness are fairly common reactions to a new formula. Because of this, we recommend introducing the new formula gradually by slowly swapping bottles of the current or “old” formula with Kendamil, starting with the midday feeds first and not the feeds before bed. This schedule can be alternated a bit based on the number of feedings. as some infants will feed for more or fewer feeds than indicated below:
Day 1: Feed 2 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are old formula
Day 2: Feeds 2 & 3 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are old formula
Day 3: Feeds 2, 3, & 4 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are old formula
Day 4: Feeds 1, 2, 3, & 4 = Kendamil, remaining feeds are current old formula
Day 5: All feeds = Kendamil
You can switch to the new formula immediately and prepare all the feeds with the new formula on Day 1. Feedback from parents using Kendamil has shown that switching to all Kendamil bottles within 24 hours is feasible. However, for some infants, it might be easier for their digestive system to transition slowly as described above.
We do recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before making any changes to your little one’s diet that you are concerned about.
Kendamil’s unique whole milk recipe provides a more naturally-derived fat source for your baby and reduces the amount of vegetable oils in our formula (we proudly use no palm oil, fish oil or soya).
Whole milk also uniquely provides your little one a natural source of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (or MFGM), as identified in human breastmilk and uniquely included in Kendamil’s whole-milk recipe.
We are proud that no Kendamil products contain palm oil (or fish oil or soya for that matter).
Studies have shown that the consumption of palm oil is linked to the malabsorption of minerals like calcium, leading to lower bone density.
Sadly, palm oil has also been linked to devastating environmental damage, threatening our rainforest and wildlife populations. Choosing Kendamil means saying no to palm oil, for a recipe that is kinder to babies and the world they will inherit.
We do not recommend storing pre-prepared bottles of milk in the fridge, as Kendamil follow the guidelines set down by the Department of Health that feeds are made fresh on demand.
Once the powder has been added to the hot water, the feed will be suitable for use for 2 hours. We would recommend that after this time any leftover product should be discarded.
