Hi ladies, I had a quick question. What formula or milk do you ladies recommend for a newborn who is lactose intolerant? The Gas is hurting her, & I hate it😢

Enfamil makes a brand that is breast milk and colostrum. It's called Enfamil Enspire.

The two big brands are Enfamil and simulac its just like coke or Pepsi in my opinion but due to my oldest having a bad time with simulac I just went with Enfamil but it's up to u its just like diapers gotta see what works best type of thing

Are you pumping while you feed her formula? If you want to increase your supply, there has to be a high demand. So every time you feed her something other than your milk, you need to pump so keep up the demand so your body knows to make more milk. If you don’t pump, your body will assume you don’t need the milk and will stop making it

So mommas, I have a question! My old basketball coach hmu saying that she has some breast milk for my newborn because she wants to help bc she's literally only 3 weeks old and the hospital has already switched her formula 5 different times. Would it be OK for her to drink another mommy's milk? And wonder if it would work?

Before my milk came in the hospital recommended my baby use donor milk from another mom from a milk bank. So yes it’s okay for your baby to drink from another mommy , just ensure that mommy is healthy and everything

I would definitely love to donate my breast milk for mothers in need of formula.... I can't imagine having to be in that situation!!. I definitely heard mother's using carnation milk as a replacement for formula as well. Seeing that there's a formula milk shortage is ridiculous...
