My DD just turned 8mo. She is BF on demand and eats solids about 2-3 times in between feedings. I dont have any BM in freezer. I have a sample box of Enfamil (Next Step Lipil). On the box it says 9-24 mo. In the instructions it says for babies transitioning from infant formula or BM. My DD has had formula occasionally. Mostly with cereal or whenever I was out or there was no EBM. I have few questions about using this formula
1. I want to use it just for cereal(maybe if I am out sometimes). Otherwise I will BF. Is it Ok to use this formula?
2. Somewhere I read that once formula is given the benefits of BM may be lost (something about different bacteria...). Is that true?
I dont mind pumping for cereal and stuff but I am in India now and it is really, really hot and dusty. I am a bit worried about keeping things sterile etc.Sometimes there is power cut and I have to be watchful of the milk going bad.
