I need to have a better idea of which formula to start my baby on once born.
She is my second. I tried to breastfeed my firstborn and this was not easy as he was lactose intolerant. We went straigtH onto Isomil (Soya) and he was fine then.
However I am not sure if I need to start my newborn on Isomil as she might not be Lactose Intolarant,and I am aware some babies can be allergic to soya.
Please share which formula worked for your newborn
I do not want to go through breastfeeding again (no bad comments please)
My first born was also on Isomil. He had bad reflux and allergies (sinus). Just like you I tried to breastfeed him but only lasted about 10 days as my milk dried up.
My second son was born on 12 April and although I had alot more milk, I was not fond of the whole breastfeeding thing. So after about two weeks I put him on Nan formula. It seems to be working fine for him apart from winds and cramps, but then again they all have to get them.
We went for a check up at the Pediatrician yesterday, and she said lots of people are complaining about Nan causing winds and cramps and that Similac and S26 are better options.
I struggled terribly with my first when it came to breastfeeding and used similac total comfort, with my second (he was a true boobies boy) but breastfeeding for me was not enjoyable at all and went the same route as my daughter and used similac total comfort. He actually had a virus and had to be moved over to isomil which he kind of struggled with as it tastes so different however similac has an HA formula not entirely sure where it is available thus the reason I went for isomil which is pretty much sold everywhere.
I think either way a baby will get cramps and winds in the beginning no matter what formula you use.
I am currently still Breastfeeding 9 weeks and counting, however my milk doesn't seem to make him full. So my pead suggested we give extra feeds and to try S26 Gold. She also mentioned that the S26 Gold makes them constipated so we tried the normal pink tin infant starter formula 0-6 months and all good.
I made good experiences with Holle organic formula. My second child has lactose intolerance, so I tried out the formula with goat milk and surprise surprise he could stomach it.
Maybe you give it a try. Here you can order the formula, if you are interested:
