Hello ladies,
I hope you and youre families are well.

Sorry I havent been around much. But things are slowly becoming normal for me and Mason.

Anyways I had a question. Since I am back at work already I am pumping as much milk as possible butits not enough for him while I am gone. I have been looking for the right formula, enfamil made him a bit gassy. Similac turned his spit ups into curds. I just dont know which one would be great.

Any suggestions?

Gerber Good Start always worked well for us. I used it now and then with my son, when we were on the go or I felt low in my supply. I have only tried it a little with Lexi in the first two weeks when she was cluster feeding.

I don't have any experience with formula, but I would suggest talking to his pediatrician to help you find something that will work. Babies are all different and what works for one won't necessarily work for another. Also have you tried anything to increase your milk supply?

Ive tried constant pumping after each feeding but it doesnt seem to help. Then I up my water and liquid intakes. So far I am still trying to figure it out

Eating oatmeal every morning is helping me. I was having a hard time getting enough pumped after nursing, but it seems to be improving. There's also Mother's Milk tea and Fenugreek you can try to increase supply.

what kind of pump do you have?

i don't have any experience with formula, but it seems like people often have to just try different kinds until they find one that works for them. did you end up with a bunch of free samples of different kinds that you can try?

how about pumping before he eats? and maybe a lactose free formula will work,
