As the title says! After a nightmare time BFeeding, tongue-tie, low weight gain/weight loss, low supply, having to take domperidone and fenugreek, spending 3 hours a day expressing and supplementing with breastmilk ... I've had enough. LO still isn't satisfied and constantly hungry.
I'm swaying towards stopping completely and using formula .... I just want to be able to enjoy a happy, satisfied and contented baby without being tied to the sofa either feeding every 90 minutes or attempting to express pitiful amounts as LO cries in his swing.
What formula do you use and what made you choose that particular brand?
Sorry to hear that. I had very similar issues and swapped to FF as well. Currently using Nestlé NAN Pro. Nothing in particular made us choose it apart from a friend giving us a carton of ready to go when I was having trouble feeding. Looking at swapping though, so I will be following this thread
I use cow and gate for my little man- and honestly I chose it because I liked the ad on tv for the growing up milk.
We weren't given any info in hospital about the different milks so I just chose that one. I don't know where u live but as far as I know the main difference between aptimil and cow and gate in the uk is that aptimil is a lighter milk. I'm glad that i chose the one that I did- Daniel seems happy on it and is a very settled baby (well most days anyway!)
We use Similac Advance, not sure why but that's the one I picked out before LO was born. We did switch to the Similac for fussy babies but it made her gas worse, so we switched back after a month on that.
We switched from Gerber Good Start to Similac Organic. They seem to be less bothered by their tummies on the Similac Organic; we switched because we wanted something closer to natural that you can get at a store.
