My baby has a milk allergy.
My husband and I had been struggling with many problems regarding baby formula.
But thankfully we found the formula that works for a baby with milk allergy perfectly. We have no problem anymore.
Until we found this formula, we tried many different types.
I want to write about what types of formula we have been tried to use and what we had been struggling with.
The formula we are using now is Enfamil Nutramigen Powder.
We are using this formula for almost 3 months and it works perfectly!!
I tried to breastfeed for 2 months, but unfortunately, it didn’t work.
So since my baby was a newborn, we have been using formula.
She used to throw up the formula almost everytime after she was fed since she was a newborn.
Throwing up like a fountain.
When we visited our pediatrician, we found that she throws up because she has acid reflux.
Our doctor recommended using some different types formulas.
The formulas doctor recommended were Similac Sensitive, Enfamil Gentlease etc
We tried them all, but they didn’t work.
After we tried them all, we decided to switch to soy formula without asking our pediatrician.
But that was a horrible mistake.
Since we started giving her soy formula, she was crying and screaming all the time.
Especially when we tried to feed.
She cried with every sip, didn’t want to take the formula, and kept squirming.
When I visited our family friend’s house, the friend is a nurse and said that’s not normal. Baby must be suffering from something.
And we figured it out because she had severe constipation all the time caused by the soy formula.
When we visited our pediatrician, she said that constipation came from soy formula as we expected, and she doesn’t like soy formulas.
She figured out our baby has a milk allergy. My husband has milk allergy too. So it makes sense.
When my husband takes too much dairy, he always stats having a lot of running nose and mucus. So his doctor suggested he should only have dairy once in a while.
The pediatrician suggested using Enfamil Nutramigen Powder which we are using right now.
This is a bit expensive but worth using.
Our baby likes drinking and no more spit after feeding.
