I fed my DD on Aptamil and always found it brilliant. She started on that because that is what they had in hospital and we continued with it as no problems.
I am due to have DC2 in a couple of weeks with an ELCS, so may be in hospital a few days, 48+ hours minimum. I would really like to use Aptamil again. I am told that this time the hospital will provide Cow & Gate.
So I either have the choice of taking the starter packs of Aptamil with the built in teats in myself and insisting on using that which could get quite expensive if I am in for a while (there are no facilities for sterilising or making a bottle at all), or starting DC2 on the Cow & Gate that the hospital provides. Would it be a problem to switch to Aptamil when we got home? Are they all really the same?
PS, I have to FF as I need to take daily medication that is not compatible with breastfeeding, something I have had to come to terms with.
