I have posted about free formula milk samples in February 2014. And now, as Asher is 6 months old now, this post came useful. I decided to turn it to a page for easy access for all, in case anyone missed out.

I have requested for Stage 2 samples for Asher as I want to let him try out all the different brands of formula milk as I know every child reacts differently to the same brand of milk.

I am still breastfeeding Asher but since day 1, my milk supply is insufficient. Asher was taking Enfamil Step 1 in Raffles Hospital. Hence, we supplemented him with Enfamil Step 1 milk powder but he passed out hard solid stools in his first week! Hence, the pediatrician advised us to switch to Similac Step 1. However, we find this milk powder is hard to dissolve and it is a bit oily. Then we switched to Dumex Mamil Gold Step 1. It was fine. However, in order to prevent Asher being a fussy baby as we realised that he will stick to 1 brand and refused my breast milk as it has different tastes everyday, we decided to switch back to Enfamil since he is bigger. A friend of mine also passed me a bottle of Similac Step 1 as it is not suitable for her child. Hence, Asher rotates around the 2 brands currently but he mostly drinks my breast milk.

As we all know, breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding.

After 6 months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to 2 years of age or beyond. We are advised to consult our doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if we have difficulty breastfeeding.

Hence, there is no longer any samples for Stage 1 (0-6 months old) milk formula. When I gave birth to Asher last October, I had to sign my consent when I want Asher to be fed formula in hospital.

I don’t think I have the persistence to breastfeed Asher up to 2 years old. I gave up breastfeeding when Alyssa was 8 months old as I was busy and stressed with work and had to be on a gastric medication for months. My milk supply reduced a lot after Alyssa reached 6 months old as I reduced the number of times in expressing my milk and Alyssa no longer wake up for night feeds then.

I also reduce the number of times of expressing my milk recently as I am very busy with work. Due to stress, my milk supply reduces. I am glad that formula milk samples are available for babies of 6 months old onwards. It’s time to let Asher drinks more of formula milk.

I really don’t know how long I can persist to continue to breastfeed for this time. It’s tiring to breastfeed but Asher still wakes up for night feeds. It is also expensive to buy formula milk powder for Asher to drink. Breast milk is free!

It is cheaper for me to buy milk powder for lactating mothers. I drink milk every night in order to ensure that my breast milk contains adequate nutrition for Asher. I have been drinking Dumex Mamil Mama since I was pregnant and I just finished my last bottle when Asher hits 6 months old. Initially, I didn’t plan to breastfeed after 6 months. While requesting for Asher’s milk samples, I also requested for mine since I am still breastfeeding. I just received my samples for Enfa mama. I bought Anmum and Similac mum when I was pregnant with Alyssa. I also tried Frisomum before but I find it sweet although it is smooth and tasty. So now, I shall try others.

Milk formula are divided into the following general categories:
Stage 0: For lactating mothers
Stage 1: For babies 0-6 months old
Stage 2: For babies 6-12 months old
Stage 3: For babies 1-3 years old
Stage 4: For toddlers 3-6 years old
Stage 5: For children above 6 years old
Special: For children 1-10 years old (For picky eaters)

You can request for your free samples as below. You are required to provide your personal information and the sample will be delivered to you. It is normally restricted to 1 per household. Information of the brands and products are provided as below.

      I fed my baby different brands of formula milk for him to try out. I don’t want to fix on a particular brand initially as I prefer to let him try out to see which is most suitable for him. Moreover, if that particular brand is not available, at least he’s not fussy to be fed using another brand. Depends on you as a parent. I was still breastfeeding my boy after 6 months old. However, I did not have enough breast milk as I was working. Hence, I supplemented with formula milk.
