I am in shock that I am getting ready to celebrate Kalvin turning one. This last year has flown by so fast. Kalvin was born a healthy 8.2 lbs and was such an amazing baby. We started our journey together breastfeeding and it was going pretty well in the hospital. I had experience since I nursed my daughter for 18 months. I had about a 6 month break breastfeeding between kids. Kalvin surpassed his birth weight and things seemed great for the first couple weeks. Then, things changed.
Kalvin got really fussy. Nursing him was awkward and didn’t go well. I began exclusively pumping because I thought a bottle would help. Exclusively pumping is NOT fun. The mamas that do it – I give them so much credit. I tried for as long as I could. I had such a hard time trying to find time to pump. With a 2-year-old and 3 dogs at home with me, and a newborn, I was just spread too thin. My supply plummeted and I couldn’t keep up. I introduced formula and Kalvin was fussy and so so gassy. I felt so bad for him. I did some research and talked with my pediatrician and she suggested switching to Enfamil NeuroPro™ Gentlease® formula. Enfamil NeuroPro™ Gentlease® is a gentle formula for easing fussiness, gas, and crying in 24 hours. I couldn’t believe that it really worked for us so quickly.
Once we fully transitioned, I also noticed Kalvin was overall more content and less gassy. I felt so relieved that I was able to find what worked and that the Enfamil NeuroPro™ Gentlease® formula was the perfect fit for us. Enfamil NeuroPro™ Gentlease® has an MFGM and DHA blend for brain-building benefits, similar to breast milk.*
It can be so upsetting seeing your baby uncomfortable, and struggling to find the right formula is stressful. I was so thankful that we successfully made the transition not only from breast to bottle, but also to formula. Kalvin has grown perfectly, and I am so proud of him. Gentlease® offers complete nutrition for babies through 12 months, such as vitamins & minerals for immune support.
Our first year together was a success and I cannot wait to see how amazing the next year is going to be. Visit https://clvr.li/2z5X0wK or call 1-800-BABY-123 for more information and to request a free sample.
