Re: looking for dha/ara free formula

Well I would look a little further into the topic- those are essential fatty acids critical for brain and eye development they are present in bm and not present in formula unless added in. There is very good medical researching showing the benefit especially in preterm babies. It is well tolerated - the sad reason that I know more than I care to about DHA is that my first child has a metabolic condition causing a serious DHA deficiency and is blind and cognitively impaired as a result. He has to take more than 10 times the amount contained in formula and has no diarrhea or vomiting, nor has he ever. The modern North American diet is extremely low in essentail fatty acids. arg fussy child in one arm... i wish I could post some links. I'll try to get back to this
