Thankful November, Day 22

November 22, 2013

I'm thankful for Similac sensitive formula.
I'm a huge supporter of breast feeding. I truly believe that if you are able to, you should breastfeed your baby. Breast is best.
I however, am not able to breastfeed Sweet Pea, due to a medication issue. So we formula feed.
We were given Enfamil formula before Sweet Pea was born, a whole case of it. That's also what the hospital gave us. So that's what we fed her the first several weeks of her life.
In those first several weeks of her life, she cried screamed. A lot. 
She would turn purple she cried screamed so much.
She also vomited. A LOT.
We took her to the doctor, and they labeled her with colic. 
They also said she may have a lactose sensitivity.
We switched her to Enfamil Gentlease. That helped quite a bit. but she still screamed.
But when we went into WIC, they wouldn't give us and Enfamil. So we went to Similac.
Once we switched to Similac sensitive, all the problems seemed to go away! 
The screaming, the vomiting (for the most part) It was like the a whole new baby.
