Life with Crosby is non-stop fun, but also just non-stop. The girl has so much energy and doesn’t know how to sit still. She definitely keeps me on my toes. But as far as I’ve heard she seems to be a pretty easy-going baby. She’s a great sleeper, rarely cries, loves to play by herself and interact with us. Sounds pretty great, right? The one area she’s never been great at is eating.
Because she was born so tiny, we’ve always been a little stressed about how much she was eating. When I was pregnant I was often asked if I was going to breastfeed. It made it seem like a choice… like something you can control. Once she was born I realized that’s not the case. I put a lot of effort into learning to nurse her, as well as pumping and giving her a bottle.
We started supplementing with formula when she was just a few days old and never looked back. For months we had a routine where I’d nurse her and then give her an additional bottle of formula. Over time we started giving her more formula and less breast milk. I’ve only recently stopped nursing.
She’s still a petite thing, holding strong in the 5th percentile for weight, but is growing and thriving.
We recently discovered and tried out a brand of formula called Comforts™, which can be found at all Kroger Family stores. Crosby seems to like it and I love it because it has all the vitamins and minerals she needs for a healthy first year, its non-GMO and recommended by pediatricians. Plus you can’t beat the price!
I’m a typical first time mom who triple checks everything I give my baby, this definitely passes all my tests.
