Useful Information

The following published material should not replace information provided by your health care professional. This information has been offered for general use and informational purposes only.

Breastfeeding

Omniblend Nourish understands that breastfeeding has been widely suggested as the best way to provide nutrients to newborn babies during the first 6 months of infancy. However, at times this is not possible or impractical.

‘There are so many reasons why we end up bottle- feeding – physical, institutional and psychological… ‘ (Morris & Howard, 2014, p.17).

It is for this reason that we manufacture Infant Formula. It is recognized as the best breast milk substitute, providing the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals needed for a baby’s healthy growth and development.

If you are considering bottle-feeding your baby, please be sure to consult with your health care professional. Incorrect use of breast milk alternatives may potentially affect your baby’s well being.

Choosing an Infant Formula

Only use Infant Formula on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist.

If your baby has been diagnosed with cows’ milk protein allergy or lactose intolerance, always talk to your GP or health care worker before choosing or changing to a different type of formula. Your healthcare professional will be able to recommend a suitable product that has been specially formulated so that it is highly unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.

Nutrients, Vitamins & Minerals

Below is a list of all the nutritional goodness found in our Infant Formulas from Stage 1 through to 3. Explore our ingredient list and the numerous benefits you are giving to your baby.

Nutrients

  • L-carnitine aids in energy production, brain and heart function.
  • Taurine is an amino acid used to form proteins. It helps to absorb fat, and helps the liver process waste.
  • Choline is an essential nutrient, supporting the nervous system and responses to inflammation and allergies.
  • Inositol is needed for cell function and found in high levels in breast milk.
  • Nucleotides build proteins and support digestive health.
  • Alpha Linoleic Acid (Omega-3) is an essential fatty acid needed for growth and development.
  • Linoleic Acid (Omega-6) is an essential fatty acid that promotes healthy nerve and brain function, and cell development.
  • Lactoferrin aids iron absorption and transportation.

 

Vitamins

  • Vitamin A is critical for vision and the general function of the immune system.
  • Vitamin D is important for bone strength and muscle development and calcium absorption.
  • Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps the body fight off infection. It also promotes blood flow and helps circulation.
  • Vitamin K1 is essential for blood clotting.
  • Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to repair damage to the body. It also boosts the immune system and promotes iron absorption.
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) plays a key role in nerve function and energy production.
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is important for healthy skin and vision, and energy production mechanisms.
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is involved in brain growth, development and red blood cell creation.
  • Vitamin B12 supports fat breakdown, cell communication, energy production and red blood cell formation.
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is involved in energy production. It also helps support skin health and the function of both the digestive and nervous system.
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) assists breakdown of nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
  • Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) helps to move oxygen through the body and assists with cell growth and the development of the nervous system.
  • Vitamin H (Biotin) plays a key role in energy production.
  • Lutein is important for eye health.

Minerals

  • Iron transports oxygen through the blood and is involved in energy production. The immune system needs iron in order to fight off infection. Feeding your baby cow’s milk rather than breast milk or infant formula puts them at high risk of iron deficiency.
  • Chloride is an electrolyte that helps to balance the pH levels in the body. It aids digestion, making for easier absorption of nutrients.
  • Magnesium is needed for bone growth, and correct nerve and muscle function. Magnesium also aids in balancing the pH of the stomach, and passing stool throughout the intestine.
  • Sodium regulates both blood pressure and volume. It helps to balance intra and extracellular fluid and ensures the proper functioning of nerves and muscles within the body.
  • Potassium works alongside sodium to help balance water in the body, assisting with control of blood pressure. Potassium also supports muscle function and regulates heartbeat.
  • Selenium protects the body’s cells from injury, making it an antioxidant. It is highly involved in the metabolic process.
  • Zinc supports healthy digestion, metabolism and aids in brain growth and development.
  • Calcium is needed for strong bones, and plays a key role in muscle and nerve function.
  • Phosphorous helps to create protein for muscle growth and development and helps to restore damaged cells. Phosphorous also supports kidney function and helps to regulate heartbeat.
  • Iodine is essential for the production of hormones, and is an integral part of maturation and growth.
  • Manganese is involved in bone formation and essential for metabolic processes.

 

Prebiotics

  • GOS strengthens immune function and digestive health.

Hygiene

In order to ensure the formula is prepared in the safest way possible, it is important to sterilise all feeding equipment before use.

  • Wash your hands
  • Wash feeding equipment (bottles, teats, caps) in hot, soapy water using a clean bottle brush
  • Rinse equipment in clean, running cold water before sterilising
  • If your bottles are suitable for sterilizing by boiling – put them in a large pan with water, cover and boil for at least 10 minutes
  • If using a commercial steriliser then ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions

Preparation

It is important to follow the directions on the formula container correctly, especially in the amounts of powder and water to use. Any risks from bacteria can be reduced significantly by following these instructions:

  • Wash your hands, sterilise all equipment and clean the preparation area
  • Boil freshly run water (do not use bottled water, artificially softened water or water that has been repeatedly boiled)
  • Once the water has boiled, leave it in the kettle and allow it to cool for 30 minutes (try and ensure that the water is at a temperature of around 70 C and then cooled as this will also aid in destroying harmful bacteria which may be present in the powder)
  • Pour the correct amount of water into the sterilised feeding bottle (take care as the water will be very hot)
  • Use the scoop that is provided with the formula to measure the required amount of powder (consult the feeding guide on the tin). Loosely fill the scoop with powder and level it off using the flat edge of a clean, dry knife or the leveller provided
  • Do not add too much or too little powder as this may make your baby ill
  • Place the cap on the bottle and shake well to mix the powder into the water
  • Cool the bottle under cold, running water until lukewarm
  • Test the temperature of the feed by dropping a little onto the inside of your wrist
  • Feed immediately. Discard any leftover milk or any left in the bottle after 2 hours.

Storage

To store the unopened container:

  • Keep out of reach from children
  • Store away from heat and direct light
  • Do not store in the bathroom, near the kitchen sink, or in other damp places
  • Heat or moisture may cause the infant formula to break down
  • Keep the infant formula from freezing
  • Do not keep outdated infant formula or those no longer needed


Be sure that any discarded infant formula is out of reach from children.
