I'm 28wks with DC3 and have started looking at feeding options. I managed just over 2 weeks bf DD1 before my milk dried up and with DD2 milk never came in. I gave DD1 C&G as that was what my family had always used and gave DD2 Aptimil as was informed by HV and other ffing mothers that it was best on market.

I've been looking through past threads on formula and have read about the ingredients that formula has and now feel guilty for using these for my DD's and confused as to what I should give DC3. I'm hoping that my milk will come in and wont dry up early but want to be prepared incase formula is needed. I've already made decision to use Dr Brown's bottles as DD2 had really bad colic.

From what I've read Hipp Organic infant seems to be a better choice as it has not been messed about with and seems to be better regulated due to organic tag. Is this a good choice or are they really all much the same?

Sorry post so long especially since not posted in months. Really confused and will appreciate any advice/comments.

TIA smile

As far as I know all Formulas are pretty much the same , so, it doesn't realy matter much which one you use

However, you sound like you would like to BF, and therefore, if I was you, I would read up about breastfeeding as much as you can and try to get a supportnetwork into place now.

Try to find support groups and local breastfeeding councellors, etc....then, if you need help you know what is available to you.

I don't know how much you already know about bf and how it works...but generally the best way to ensure that it will work out is making sure the latch is right and feed as often as you can....I put my lil ones on everytime they stirred, lol....and they would usually latch on.
The more you fed the more milk you produce.

the kellymom website is fantastic for information about bf.

And by the way, there is no need to feel guilty....you did what was best at the time, wiht the information that was available to you....you can't do much more then that, really!

Oh, and congratulations on your pg
