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.
Today we're sharing Patricia's story
As a pediatrician and new mom, I knew I wanted to breastfeed my son. But when I went back to work, Luke would only breastfeed and refused to drink breast milk from the bottle. After a few long and stressful weeks of dealing with a hungry and unhappy baby, I knew something had to change. I first heard about Kabrita from a colleague and thoroughly researched the company and the nutritional composition of the formula before deciding to try it. The first time I left the formula with the babysitter, I got a call a few short hours later telling me that after refusing breast milk in the bottle again, he drank the entire bottle of Kabrita! I was so relieved.
We’ve been using Kabrita ever since, when I’m away at work, (or even out on a date night with my husband!), and Luke, who’s now 17 months, loves it. He transitioned very easily with no digestive symptoms, and we’re able to go back and forth easily between Kabrita and breastfeeding, which I love. It has also improved the relationship between my husband and Luke, because he can now stay home with Luke and feed him, leaving a much happier kid and allowing better bonding time. Kabrita has been a total life saver for my family!
As a pediatrician, Kabrita has become my number one recommended formula to patients. I love that is nutritionally complete, and is very easy to digest, which is important since digestive symptoms are the number one complaint I get when babies switch from breast milk to formula. Not with Kabrita! I find it extremely beneficial for little ones dealing with constipation, gas, reflux and eczema, and they typically improve within a week or two. It’s also a great option for Moms who want to continue breastfeeding but need to supplement with formula, or are looking to wean completely to a formula.
Kabrita is the only formula that tastes and smells similar to breastmilk (and I encourage all Moms to taste it!). It is the only formula I’ve found that allows a mother to easily transition back and forth between formula and breastfeeding – most babies will eventually reject one or the other. I have had extremely positive feedback from parents after recommending Kabrita, and am so grateful to have this wonderful product available for my patients.
