I was set on breastfeeding my little girl, Elliotte, and eventually ended up having to pump exclusively. I was constantly getting terrible mastitis from pumping, and knew I had to start weaning. When considering which formula to use, I wanted something that was easy to digest, gentle on her stomach, and overall a high quality option. I started asking friends about their experience with formula and doing my own research.
After years of struggling with fertility issues, I was so thrilled to be pregnant and have a healthy delivery with our daughter, Isabella. I was determined to breastfeed her as long as I could, but due to my medical conditions this was difficult. We tried different formulas recommended by her pediatrician, and since she has a sensitive stomach, we even tried the ‘sensitive’ and ‘gentle’ formulas. With all of them, Isabella had tummy pain, constipation and diarrhea. She also had terrible eczema, which I didn’t realize at the time could be related to her formula. None of the formulas we tried made a change in these symptoms.
