Join our organic infant formula research study
Are you planning to formula feed your baby?
We are looking for pregnant women and parents of babies less than 14 days old, who are planning to exclusively formula feed their infant.
Infant formula and diapers provided at no cost
Compensation of up to $400 for your time
Your participation will contribute valuable information that may benefit others in the future
How it works
Participation is super easy. You don't need insurance, and there's no cost to participate.
Feed your baby
Weigh and measure
We'll provide either our organic formula or a commercial brand formula.
A qualified nurse will come to your home once a month to weigh and measure your baby.
Keep track of the amount of formula your baby drinks.
Nara Organics is infant formula made whole, smart, and simple.
Because what you feed your newborn has a direct effect on health, growth, and development. And your baby deserves the best!
Our new organic infant formula uses 100% grass-fed organic whole milk. We purposefully used as many natural ingredients as possible and minimized the use of synthetically derived ingredients (no GMO's here). And you won't find any icky fillers -- artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, palm oil, soy, corn syrup, or high fructose syrups.
As first time parents, we were shocked to find ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup in infant formula. So we set out to make a new, clean formula for formula.
We looked all this stuff up, so you don’t have to.
Infant formula is often filled with shady, sugary stuff. We looked at what goes into infant formula, and Nara is cleaning it up.
Only necessary nutrients
Your baby deserves the best. What she is fed plays a large role in her health, growth and development. Breastmilk is the gold standard for infant nutrition, and when breast milk volume is insufficient or when breastfeeding is not an option, infant formula is considered the next best feeding alternative.
