Enfamil gift card giveaway! Posted: 17 Sep 2016 08:51 PM PDT wrestlingaddictedmommy.com/2016/09/feeding-our-babies-breasfed-or-formula-its-ok-enfamil-gift-card-giveaway/ When it comes to feeding our kids, we all do what we can, we make sure they have nurishment and that they are in fact fed. We’d give up almost anything not to see our babies go hungry. Sometimes, as new moms, that means not being able to breastfeed. I for one, was not able to. When my first daughter was born, I wasn’t sure I wanted to breastfeed, but when she came, I instantly changed my mind. However, my body wouldn’t co-operate. She was eating, or what it looked like was eating, but she kept losing weight. We tried pumping, but that didn’t work, I just wasn’t producing enough milk, no matter what I tried. So, onto the formula we went! When my second daughter was born, we tried again, but with the same issues, I just couldn’t produce enough milk for them no matter what. So another formula fed baby. I can tell you, the first one, it was hard, I felt like a bad mom, I felt like I couldn’t provide for my daughter, but I got over that, she was being fed, and that’s all that mattered! My second one, I was disappointed but again, she was being fed and nourished and cared for, I was doing what I was supposed to be doing. Enfamil Formula was helping me do what I was doing. It’s often hard to hear stories of new moms who are anguished over the fact that they can’t breastfeed, and then to see other moms who get bashed for not breastfeeding. Fact is, we’re all doing our best, we all need to feed our child. We do what we have to do to make sure our children are growing. As moms, we do have a duty to research what we’re giving our child. There are so many resources online now to find information about things, and yes, that includes formula. You can do some research about Safe Infant Formula online and find what you should be looking for. There’s also the fact that formula can get expensive. Look around online, there’s always sales as well as coupons that you can find. Theres coupons for just about every type of Enfamil formula. Another question with feeding our babies formula, is how much is enough, how much is too much. Find a portion guide for baby’s first year to help you out. To all mom’s out there, know, that you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing, no matter what the choice, as long as you’re making one, you’re doing the right thing for your child, and that’s feeding them to make sure they grow!
