there's alot of milk you can get.. see my post. i'm in rockland county - not to far from u. however, formula is not as evil and bad as everyone makes it to be. hundreds and thousadns of babies are growing up fine on formula! if your dd isn't doing well on one, switch to a soy based, or sensitive formula.

3.5 month needs supplementation due to low milk suppply but has problems with formula (Riverdale)

Post by mcdaidwiley on Wed Jun 02, 2010 10:04 pm

I returned to work at 6 weeks postpartum and since that time my daughter has been fed exclusively with breast milk. I froze some in those early weeks but that is now depleted. I can pump approx. 12oz daily and cannot improve on this despite herbs, increase pumping schedule etc. I have a very stressful job and believe it is due to stress and sleep deprivation, since I also encounter the same issue 7 years ago with my fist child. In her case, we supplemented with formula as I was completely unaware of a milk donor program.

Today was the first day for formula supplementation with my 3.5 month old daughter. After much research, I decided on baby's only formula since it contains no corn syrup and is DHA free (and thus free of organic solvents). She hated the taste and only took approx. 1 oz and has been farting and belching all afternoon and unable to sleep. She had bad 'colic' until 9 weeks (green, mucus-filled stools and pain which necessitated a dairy-free, gluten-free, chocolate and nut-free diet for 9 weeks). Once her stools changed to yellow and became less slimy, I went back on my regular diet and she has been thriving (was 6lb at birth - full-term and is now 12lb). Since she had such pain from her digestive issues early on, I am worried about formula causing her pain and would love to continue with breast milk only, if possible. I am concerned at her reaction to this formula because from what I have read it is best of a bad lot.....most other brands have corn syrup as the 2nd ingredient. Like all parents, I hate to see my baby in distress.

I am happy to pay all associated costs (materials / shipping etc.). Please let me know if you can help us out. Shehas NO dietary restrictions any more on my breast milk - I can now eat all foods and she is fine. We live in Riverdale, Bronx and are happy to either pick up form surrounding areas or organize and pay for shipping. THANKS for your consideration and help!
