Every parent’s feeding experience is as unique as their baby. While the journey may be easy for some, others may struggle. Real Parent Story is a series on our blog where we ask real parents to share their feeding stories. Whether you’re expecting or already have little one, we hope these stories can offer you insight into what worked (or didn’t work) for parents just like you.
By Brandi Bjorklund:
My milk had not come in and I had decided not to breastfeed my baby. The first week home from the hospital Rowan was handling his cow’s milk based formula well. And then things drastically changed!
He had frequent respiratory infections, acid reflux, severe gas, diarrhea, pain, and a distended stomach for months and months.
He required nose & mouth aspiration after each feeding, which prevented him from laying down for 2 hours after drinking his bottle!
We went through 5 formulas and 3 Pediatric Physicians before someone finally listened to us.
At age one, he underwent chiropractic care to help with his GERD.
Our chiropractor felt that along with medication and our pediatric doctor’s monitoring, that our son should switch formulas.
She gave me a list of three options and after researching I decided to try Kabrita because of all the vitamins and minerals it contained, and how safe it appeared to be. I was terrified to try ANOTHER new formula but after the first bottle no aspiration was necessary!!! After one week on KABRITA, the improvement was remarkable and evident. He also loved the taste from the beginning and the transition was very easy.
He now is now 20 months old, still on Kabrita, gaining weight and thriving!
Kabrita has been a god send, our whole family is happier and for our future children, this is something that will be a staple in our house!
