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.
My preemie was also on HMF but mixed with breast milk. We later added progestimil too.. but as for formula you can always get breast milk from a milk bank or even the awesome group human milk for human babies so many moms love to donate milk especially to preemies
I donated to a preemie. She wouldn’t tolerate formula (she did have hmf with my Brest milk mixed at her nicu though) but straight formula was too hard on her tummy. And even some other moms breast milk she had a hard time with (but my milk was from the early days of my preemie so it was milked designed for a preemie)
Anyways. The long ramble was basically to say. You should get breast milk :)
Thanks @thisischristinesshit. I had been looking into human milk banks and I scoped out a site but didn’t see any in my area. I am located in NYC. Do you have a link for the banks mentioned?
Get on Facebook and look up “human milk 4 human babies - (your state)”
Thanks @thisischristinesshit Got it! Awesome.
