Well…I don’t know if it’s true for all babies but it’s totally been a blessing for my sweet lil man! If you’re looking for the best formula for a breast fed baby you need to check this one out!
Ok…..I am all about going natur’el as much as possible. Breastfeeding has been such a joy and privilege with my son! But after waking up in the middle of the night 2-4 times for EIGHT months straight…….I was losing my mind!
If you’re interested in ways to help your baby sleep through the night, I share all the deets from my experience in this post.
I figured after baby began eating food, things would quiet down at night. But no luck!! He would still wake up screaming non-stop until I let him nurse. No….not using me as a pacifier but full on nursing sessions in the middle of the night. I figured I needed to start supplementing.
Here Began The Mission To Find The Best Formula For a Breast Fed Baby!
Ever seen a baby’s disgusted face…..over and over and over?
Well, I tried to give lil man different kinds of formula…… 8 in total! Each one causing a look of extreme disgust the moment a drop hit his mouth. Soon the lack of sleep and guilt combined to form zombie mom. I was soooo desperate!
I began researching different formulas online. To my surprise, most of the U.S. formulas are made by pharmaceutical companies.
Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want but I would say being weary of companies who profit off of illness……. making my child’s food is a completely legitimate concern!
So What Is The Best Formula For A Breast Fed Baby?
Well, I can tell you what the best formula for MY breast fed baby is =) It’s called KABRITA.
When I was put on a TON of medications for an H pylori tummy infection, I had to start the emotionally painful experience of “pumping and dumping” my milk. Every time I watched that liquid gold circle down the drain my heart screamed NOOOOOOOOOOO! I am so grateful I had found this formula by that time!
This is made in Europe! If you’re not familiar, Europe has much more strict regulations for what is allowed in their food…GMO’s, preservatives, dyes etc. are all highly regulated or illegal! This formula was created by two moms who had their own struggles with breast milk for their children.
One is a Naturopathic Dr. and the other specializes in business with an Infant Nutrition Background. Both of them teamed up with Hyproca Nutrition, a Dutch Dairy with over 70 years of infant nutrition expertise to make KABRITA USA.
KABRITA is a goat milk formula which is easier for the body to digest and great for children who have some sensitivities to cow’s milk. The formula smells good and tastes sweet, unlike all the others we tried. *GAG* And to my surprise, my son gobbled up an entire bottle right away….without even mixing in breast milk!!
You want me to pay how much for that!?
Ummmm yea. It’s pretty damn expensive. But I say TOTALLY worth it! I found it at my local whole foods store for $23/14oz. You can also find it on Amazon and their own website (listed below). If purchasing from their website you will receive discounts/coupons.
Did I mention my son immediately started sleeping the whole night after I began supplementing with this (and adding a little single grain, infant oatmeal to his last bottle)!? That’s what I’m talkin about! =D

Happy baby, happy life!
