Scientists and medical experts have spent years developing high-quality formula milks that will provide your baby with the nutrition she needs.

When you’re deciding which formula is right for your baby, you will need to take several factors into consideration. Think about her health and dietary needs, her age, and the cost and preparation time of different formula milks. Our guide to formula milks will help you to choose the right type for your baby. Check out this comprehensive guide on baby milk powders, before you decide on which formula is right for your baby and to help you make sense of the many options out there in Singapore.

Update: In view of the recent coronavirus crisis, many of the items below are out of stock. 

As a summary, there are three different types of formula:
  • cow’s milk-based formula
  • hydrolysed protein formula
  • soya-based formula
It’s most likely your baby can have cow’s milk-based formula, unless there’s a health or dietary reason why she can’t.

You might also come across the terms 'stage 1, 2 and 3' for baby milk powders: 
  • Stage 1: Sometimes labelled simply as “infant milk powder”, this is suitable for babies from birth to 6 months.
  • Stage 2: Also known as “follow on milk powder”, Stage 2 is for babies from 6 months old and up.
  • Stage 3: Contains more nutrients and calories, for toddlers 1 year old and up.
There are many different brands for baby or infant milk formulas in Singapore. We have trawled through the reviews, Google search results and information available on blogs and forums, and shortlisted the best for you. Here are the best baby milk powders you can buy online in Singapore today.

Manufactured by Mead Johnson, the brand also offers a lactose-free version labelled “Lacto Free” and one for colicky or lactose-intolerant babies called Gentlease, which is made of a gentle protein blend that is easier to digest.

Nestle NAN Optipro 

Nestle NAN Optipro (Optimised Protein Blend) has been quite aggressive in their marketing recently. You may have seen bus ads that state that their formula is backed by “The Science of Mother+”.

We don’t know about that, but Optipro is pretty popular among Singaporean mothers as it is a gentle protein blend that is easy on the stomach. The range also includes a hypoallergenic (HA) version, which has partially broken down protein. We hear that it tastes more bitter that the usual types, though!

Their formula milk, while not the most expensive, is on the higher end. Nestle also makes a budget brand called Lactogen which is more affordable.

Update: In view of the recent coronavirus crisis, many of the items below are out of stock.

With the Dumex Dulac Milk Powder, you can provide your newborn baby with the nutrients he or she needs without burning a hole in your pocket. It is one of the most value-for-money milk formulas for newborn babies in Singapore.
