Let me start with if you don't like fomula feeding just close out of the question now. I don't want to hear "oh breastfeeding is better" this is what is best for us.
I will be talking to my daugthers pedi on Monday but I wanted some opinions on here tonight.
She will be a year in little over a month. Most babies switch over to milk then but my daughter has a allergy to lactose. Not severe but she is on Similac Senitive for Spit Up. It is basically senitive milk but with added rice starch & iron. My daughter hasn't put on much weight since she was born. She was 7lbs 2oz and is only 18bs 8oz at 11months.
They make a formula for toddlers 9months -24months. I want to contiune my daughter on formula because I want to make sure she is gettin all the nutrients she needs. She is 11months & still isn't eating some table food yet. Ex Crackers she has a hard time swallowing them, when she swallows she takes in air making her choke. Pedi said she will out grow it but until then just watch her but continue to try these types of foods with her. She can eat mash potatos but we are still 2nds foods about to switch to 3rd foods soon.
Anyways the Toddler formula I will have to pay out of pocket for so it is a generic brand "parents choice." How do I slowly switch her. And how do I look for allergies to it.
Thanks to all & please again....anything neg, just don't. Anything helpful is awesome!!
