See that adorable little bundle of joy? That's my Xander, when he was just a couple of weeks old. The man holding him? Well, obviously that's not my hubby. However, this man played a HUGE role in my last 2 pregnancies and the births of my little ones. That's right! He was my OBGYN!
It's no secret that I suffer from anxiety. During pregnancy, it was amplified about a zillion percent. I basically turned into a basket case. Back to back pregnancies are hard, both on the body and the emotions. I seemed to worry about everything. I do mean everything, too. In fact, thanks to Google, I convinced myself that I was dying at least once during both of my last pregnancies. This made my oh-so-awesome Doc ground me from Google and tell me to chill the f*** out. Yes, in those very words.
My doc was a really cool guy, who reminded me of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Bill Cosby mixed, personality wise. He was always able to not only make me feel better, but also make me laugh at myself for being super-nutty. (Seriously, I don't know how my Dr. put up with me!)
New parents tend to worry a lot, and have a lot of questions. After all, when you have a baby, your life is no longer your own. You have this beautiful, tiny little person who depends on you for literally everything. Now that's a huge responsibility, and all parents just want to make the decisions that are best for their baby.
The folks at Perrigo Nutritionals Store Brand Formula recently conducted a survey of pediatricians nationwide, to see what questions they get asked the most often by new parents. The results are definitely interesting!
Perrigo Nutritionals Store Brand Formula’s “Pulse of Pediatricians” Survey Results:
Whether you choose breast or bottle-feeding is an entirely personal choice. Of course everyone knows that breast-feeding has amazing benefits, but not every mother is able to do so exclusively.
In fact, my babies had problems nursing, so I pumped for a good 6 months with them and then gradually switched to formula. While I wish that nursing would have been more successful, I have peace of mind knowing that they got the benefits of breast milk for several months, followed by a nutritionally complete infant formula. (We actually used Target's Up & Up formula, since we always found some amazing deals on buying it by the case.) Today, Sophie and Xander are both happy, healthy, and thriving preschoolers.
So if you're looking for an infant formula that is nutritionally equivalent to the big brands without the hefty price tag, definitely talk to your pediatrician and consider trying store brand formula. I think you'll be delighted, both by how well baby does on it, as well as by the fabulous savings.
