Sensitivity® 1 Formula—GROWTH

Store brand Sensitivity® 1 infant formula is a milk-based, low lactose formula that provides complete nutrition for your baby's first year. Designed to be more like breast milk, this baby formula features a blend of nutrients for brain and eye development: DHA, Lutein, and Vitamin E. All three nutrients are found naturally in breast milk:

  • DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid fat that supports mental and visual development
  • Lutein is a naturally occurring carotenoid and antioxidant that is concentrated in the eye
  • Vitamin E is a nutrient that plays a role in healthy cellular development

In addition, our Sensitivity® 1 formula contains prebiotics to support your baby's immune system and digestive health. It also is formulated with antioxidant vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, C, E, and Zinc for immune support.

Why Choose a Low Lactose Formula for Lactose Sensitivity?

Some babies can handle lactose, a sugar found in milk, without a problem. Others may have difficulty digesting foods with high amounts of lactose. Frequent spit ups, diarrhea, gas, and/or bloating are common signs of lactose sensitivity. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends offering your baby or child foods that are lactose free or lactose reduced if he or she shows signs of lactose intolerance or sensitivity. More information can be found on

Store brand formula offers a low lactose, Sensitivity® Infant Formula with milk proteins containing 95 percent less lactose† than standard milk based formulas. This formula gives parents and their babies a healthy alternative with many of the same essential ingredients found in formulas that contain 100 percent lactose.

Pediatricians typically recommend cow's milk as a preferred protein source for growing babies. Like the store brand infant and advanced milk-based formulas, store brand Sensitivity® also offers the lipids and nutrients found naturally in breast milk that support brain and eye health in babies. Consult your pediatrician first before considering a soy formula or researching lactose free baby formula varieties available from big brands; a milk formula offering reduced amounts of lactose may be suitable for your little one instead.

What is the Difference?

Low lactose formula and soy-based formula differ only in the source of protein. Whereas low lactose formula contains a small amount of lactose in the preferred cow's milk proteins, soy-based formulas are a vegetarian-based source of protein derived from soybeans. Both are a sole source of nutrition for babies, so parents can make their own decisions based on what their pediatricians recommend.
