It's important to remember that every baby is different, but we recommend transitioning from breastfeeding to formula feeding gradually, to give your baby time to adjust to the new formula, and so that your body gets used to making less milk. Babies can taste the difference between breast milk and formula, so trying this approach helps to ease them in.

It can take babies up to two weeks to fully adjust to formula feeding. During this time, gas and constipation are fairly common. One method for transitioning is to replace one breastfeeding session every few days with a formula feed and continuing this until you are feeding exclusively with formula or reach your desired feeding outcome.

  • Day 1: Feed 2 = Kendamil, nurse for remaining feeds
  • Day 2: Feeds 2 & 3 = Kendamil, nurse for remaining feeds
  • Day 3: Feeds 2, 3, & 4 = Kendamil, nurse for remaining feeds
  • Day 4: Feeds 1, 2, 3, & 4 = Kendamil, nurse for remaining feeds
  • Day 5: All feeds = Kendamil

For babies six months or older, Stage 2 baby formula (also known as Follow-on Milk) provides complete nutrition and the correct amount of vitamins and minerals for babies at that stage of development. Babies younger than six months should only be fed Stage 1 baby formula.

We always recommend checking in with your GP before transitioning to a new baby formula or supplementing breast milk with formula.
