  • do you send formula with her when she visits him? I would probably do that..

  • Explain to him the havoc it causes a little ones body being switched like that.

  • Take him to her Doc with you.... let the doc explain it!! Then Send the correct formula with him or keep her with you until the courts MAKE you send her for visitation. At that point you can get it court ordered that while he has her he must feed her what the doctor ordered!!

  • Or maybe ask your doctor to write up something that says she may only have a specific kind...

  • Give him the formula she needs to have. You do the shopping.

  • I've sent formula to him and doesn't use it. He has been to the doctor with me a couple of times. I've confronted him through text message with the formula. He thinks I'm stupid my daughter poop is hard like a rock for the first time she poops from being with him. He takes off the label for the formula so I won't question it I know enfamil doesn't come in a white bottle

  • Don't he realize he is hurting the baby? It seems like he is really mad at you and taking it out on her. It seems crazy that even with providing the correct formula he continues to feed her the wrong formula that makes her ill. I would definitely bring this up in court. Its not fair to the child. And if he can't feed her the correct milk he shouldn't have her at all
