Mom’s, what do you prefer in addition to breast milk? Because the baby is a #preemie, my twin sister won’t produce a lot of milk for another few weeks and she has had to add formula to the breast feeding mix. Being the health enthusiast that i am, I want to make sure my niece gets the best for her body. She’s currently on Similac but that’s been giving her reflux and constipation and I have read that the amount of sugar and synthetics in the formula are no bueno. What are your views on Conventional formula? Organic formula? Here is an interesting article that breaks down both types. So tell me, what have you used? http://foodbabe.com/2013/05/28/how-to-find-the-safest-organic-infant-formula/
Tell her to look into human milk fortifier! Its designed for breastmilk, unlike formula. But I suggest the powder kind (I think its through similac). My daughter was on the liquid kid (Through enfamil), and it caused her to have extensive amounts of loose stools. The powder works a lot better for her. Shes also a preemie.
Thank you so much Shelby @babybandme . We will look into it. The visiting nurse came two days ago and had us increase her calorie intake since we switched from Neosure to Earths Best. The 22 calorie difference was illustrated by an increase in formula with a concentration of powder by 3 scoops. This caused her to spit up a few times so we kept it simple with the container instructions. Aerabella is such a beautiful name and I love that my niece and her are only 6 days apart in birth. How kindred and beautiful. My niece’s name is Leyenda and she just hit the 5lb mark so she officially gained newborn status. Watching her make faces, cry, and even poop is exciting at this point. Finalizing her meals between formula, breast milk and/or the milk fortifier would be awesome.
