FYI

I went all over God's great world this a.m. trying to get Noah the similac liquid formula! We live 20 minutes from town..so that is why I had to drive so much. I finally found it and Noah HATED it! Keep in mind it is the same exact thing but in liquid form!! Go figure! So I called my dr. and the nurse said to use enfamil and that it is basically the same thing..BUT without the recall!!

I had to then go in and return the extra liquid formula I just bought and get enfamil powder. Noah loved the enfamil!!! Similac is on my dislike list at the moment!!! Just wanted to let you formula feeding mommas know so you may wanna try enfamil instead of the liquid formula. And if you are like me and start beating urself up for not breastfeeding.....DON'T!!! Formula fed babies are fine! I have to remind myself that the doctor said Noah was the most alert 4 mos. old he had ever seen and he is in the 90th percentile in wt. Let Go and Let GOD!!! okay off soapbox!!

Jakob liked the enfamil too. He wouldn't drink the similac, but he'd scarf down that enfamil :)

I am so glad you said that! I returned my Similac powder and ended up getting Good Start...my baby hates it! His tummy hurts so bad... I feel horrible, I should have bought enfamil...

Isn't it hard to let go though???? Apparently I have too many issues that I couldn't get all my parenting struggles included in my 30 day challenge! :) That is definitely a struggle for me. But days like the one you just described make it very evident. We have no choice BUT to let go! You said it perfectly. Let go. Let GOD!


Thank you for this reminder. I am so glad that you heard a word that you needed today.
