Hello, I have been breasfeeding for 1 month now with our newborn. She is eating every hour and I thought about introducing formula. My husband threw out the original similac powder I got for free in the mail.
He saw the 9000 chemicals in it and threw a fit. He can't stand doctors and pharmacutical companies. So that was a month ago. Now today I thought about introducing a little formula a little at a time. I have ZERO time to pump and I'd like a little break and perhaps let my husband feed her a couple times @ night so I can have a little time to myslef.
So, I bought the organic similac formula. I'm assuming this perhaps has less garbage in it than the other stuff that was thrown out. I'm just feeling a bit guilty. I asked my husband about it and he put me on a guilt trip about antibodies and nutrients and the like, but agreed that perhaps a couple bottles a day wouldn't hurt.
My concern is that my sister used formula after 1 month, probably not organic. Her daughter got constipated and gas like crazy. As it is now, with the breastmilk, it's not a problem much with the gas and constipation. This baby is very colicky as it is and I don't want to make things worse.
Does anybody have any experience with organic formula and if it causes problems with gas and the like. My husband is totally against milk. Since he's stopped milk, he has no sinus problems and gets sick no more. So even with the organic milk powder I'm just a bit concerned. I ask my husband about this and he's very adamant against milk "cows milk is for cows, cats milk is for cats, humans milk is for humans" LOL
Any advice / help is appreciated.
