Every Monday I will be posting what I feel is my “Momma Word of Wisdom” for the week. I will ask others to join me in the conversation. You can share your funny story for the week or best peace of advice to pass along to other Mommas. You can post a cute pic of you kiddo or your kiddos funny quote as well. I know from experience that kids really do say the darnedest things! 😉
I wish that I could remember all the adorable moments I am sharing with my boys right now but sleep depravation is limiting my memory. 😉
Here is my tip for the week:
Newborns and formula; My husband and I did much research on what were the best formula options out there. We wanted to give Henry the most natural formula we could find without a ton of nasty ingredients that he did not need and because he is adopted breast feeding was not an option. We found so many formulas add High Fructose Corn Syrup and wanted to avoid it if at all possible. After researching we both felt that the best choose was Earth’s Best Organic Formula. Henry has done great with it, no spitting up and very little gas issues. Here is their website for more info.
It is a bit pricier than other formulas but worth it to make sure we are given him a more organic option.
Another tip on formula I have is to serve the formula room temperature. We have done this with both Sam and Henry. We use Gerber baby water and leave it sitting on our counter. This makes life so much simpler for midnight feedings and bottles on the go. I leave formula and water in nursery to make bottles in the middle of the night. I really think it helps soothe the tummy to have room temp anyway. Most Doctors recommend drinking liquids room temperature if you are having stomach problems so why not for babies too?
Remember I am not a professional! These are just my opinions and advice to New Mommas on things that I found helpful.
