One of the hardest parts about being a new Mom is not being able to comfort your baby when they really need it. From colic to occasional constipation, we try everything we can to bring comfort to our babies. Things like prune juice, warm compresses and other options seem to provide temporary relief, but nothing seems to last. I remember using karo syrup for my daughter when she had trouble with constipation – I always felt bad because it would go from one extreme to another, and I never had anything to use to keep her regular.
I remember getting really frustrated and thinking I was doing something wrong- then I found out that over 70% of infants have some type of feeding issue. So I knew I wasn’t alone – but it wasn’t any less frustrating.
I found that the issues often happen because your baby’s digestive system is still developing, especially during the first 3 or 4 months. The best way to tell if there is more behind your babies issues is to watch how they act right after you feed them – notice if he gets upset when you try to feed him, even though you know he’s hungry, there is something more going on.
Some behaviors of digestive issues are fussiness and gas, spit-ups, and stool issues. If you run into these issues, ask your pediatrician about options to help soothe and get their digestive system back on track. Most of the time your doctor will recommend an alternative formula that is designed to ease common feeding issues while still providing good nutrition your baby needs for development.
Enfamil Reguline is an infant formula that has a blend of two prebiotics clinically proven in Enfamil Infant formula to promote soft stools. Enfamil Reguline is designed to promote comfortable stool. It also has easy-to-digest proteins. It’s designed to help support digestive health. Prebiotics help feed the good bacteria in the digestive tract. Prebiotics are a type of carbohydrate that is also found in breast milk. Enfamil Reguline also has brain-nourishing DHA and choline for complete everyday nutrition.
I love that this is an everyday formula that I can use all the time. Not only is Reguline designed to help support their digestive health, but it also gives them the complete nutrition they need for growth and development.
