You’ve waited 9 long months to meet your precious bundle of joy and you’re already exhausted from the sleepless nights and being on call 24/7. Instead of falling into a regular pattern, your beautiful son or daughter begins to struggle with occasional constipation. I’ve been there and know it can be so frustrating! Mead Johnson Nutrition is sponsoring this post and sent me a sample of Enfamil® Reguline® to help this very problem. I think it will change the way you look at digestive health when feeding or supplementing your baby with formula.
Even though I tried breastfeeding, all of my kids grew up – and thrived – on infant formula. As I soon learned and experienced myself, one of the biggest frustrations regarding formula-feeding babies has been the struggle with regular bowel movements. Other than taking advice from Dr. Internet (*not a real doctor!), new parents don’t always have solid information to guide them in this situation.
When I was a new mom and looking for answers, I remember being told to add a bit of extra water to the formula, or even give my baby prune or pear juice, to “keep things moving.” I now know that introducing new or different foods into their diet too early can not only cause more irregularity, but increase the potential for more serious conditions or allergic reactions. Mixing formula is an exact science and it’s advised to follow only the instructions given on the formula container. Old wives’ tales may have a place in your life on occasion, but when it comes to your infant and their health they can often be dangerous.
As a new parent you want to give your child the very best you can. You want to provide complete nutrition and address any digestive discomfort. Both new and veteran parents with an infant in the house will be pleased to know that Enfamil® has introduced a solution. Enfamil® Reguline® is an everyday infant formula that is designed to promote soft, comfortable stools. Instead of taking chances of introducing your child to a fruit juice too early or giving them too much water in their diet, you can feel comfortable feeding your child a formula that helps support digestive health.
Today’s parents can sleep well at night – as well as can be expected anyway! – knowing what they’re feeding their babies is safe and help support for digestive health. They don’t need to use improvised techniques or folk remedies to help their baby with difficult stooling. As an everyday formula, Enfamil® Reguline® can be used throughout your baby’s first year of life.
