Hi! My husband and I are in the process of adopting our first child domestically out of state. We haven't been matched yet with a mom and her unborn baby(ies), so we don't know how long we will have to prepare.
I'm researching inducing lactation and checking with my doctor to find out if it is a good fit for me. (I'm usually not keen on taking supplemental hormones for long periods of time so there's still quite a bit of discernment that I have to do.)
I know that breastfeeding is best, but I also know that I will very likely need to supplement anything I might produce through induced lactation with formula.
What is the best formula to use? Or is there a reasonable and healthy alternative to mass produced formula? (I am pretty anti-Soy and also happen to be allergic to it.)
Since breastfeeding moms have their children's best chance for a healthy future and well being in mind, I thought that I would ask other adoptive/induced lactating moms what formula options they had resorted to.
Thanks in advance!
