I'm looking for opinions on soy formula brands. I know when I return to work that I won't be able to pump enough even though I pump 4 times/day (based on previous experience with my daughter). I plan to try and increase my production, but wanted ideas about formula just in case. Thank you!
There are many out there, I had to use Soy for my youngest I tried them all but in the end I used Wegmen's store brand....he did the best on that. Please note that all Soy formula stain clothing, so keep a bottle of eco friendly baby stain stuff, you can get it at babies r us and its made by Dads.
I was trying to find a good spot to post this, and this seems like as good a spot as any. If you are using Similac's soy formula, you will want to read this: http://www.naturalnews.com/033263_Similac_baby_formula.html Similac has had an ongoing bug infestation problem and beetles and beetle larvae have been found in the formula. Gross! Also, their ingredient list doesn't seem that great either. I'm not a mother yet, but I thought I would certainly want to know about this if I was!
You can pump enough. Your body is amazing. Our bodies are made to provide enough mother's milk for baby. Each time you introduce a bottle, you are reducing your milk supply, thus having to rely more and more on the fake thing. Plus, soy is not good for babies at all.
Remember, your body absolutely WILL produce enough milk for baby. Only something like 1% of women can't.
