I am going to have to stop breastfeeding my daughter, so I am looking for suggestions for formulas...
First let me explain. My daughter (Aviendha) is almost 5 months old. I have crohn's disease and I haven't been on my meds for over a year because they haven't been researched for how safe they are for pregnant and nursing mothers. And I am not comfortable with nursing her while taking them. (I really believe they were a big factor in the loss of our twins 2 1/2 years ago)
So I hadn't been feeling well for about about 2 or 3 months and I finally had a colonoscopy yesterday. I have some inflammation and quite a few ulcers in my intestines so I need to get back on my meds with the hope that I won't have to have another surgery. I have two other kids and when each of them was about a year old I had to have a bowel resection which I would really prefer not to go through again.
I am really bummed about not being able to nurse her for a whole year. I do have 2 months worth of milk frozen breast milk I can use and I am still pumping and freezing but it isn't going to be enough to last until she is a year.
So if you use formula please tell me what kind and what you like and don't like about it. Thanks
