  • Breastfeed. It's totally possible to re-lactate, and I'm sure she'd take fine to breastmilk. Formula isn't what babies are meant to eat, and is why so many babies have problems with it.

  • I would also suggest trying to relactate. It does take lots of work, but it is possible if you are committed to it. Most formulas are made with cows milk, and many babies have a sensitivity to it. Others are made with soy, which babies also tend to have sensitivies to.

    If you're interested in relactating, you can find information on kellymom.com. You can also use their search tool to find an IBCLC - they're board certified lactation consultants who have lots of experience and are AWESOME. :)

  • At this point, I also would suggest looking into relactation.
