What was the first milk formula you gave to your newborn?
« on: July 05, 2010, 11:32:38 pm »

Hello Mommies,

Question again out of curiosity. Ano po yung first milk formula na binigay nio kay baby? Kasi I heard that there were some instances na even if you wanted to beastfeed the baby may mga times na hindi pwede. Like what happened to my friend who recently gave birth pero she had pre-eclampsia and she have to take tons of antibiotics so hindi siya pinayagan mag-breastfeed even while she's in the hospital kasi na-CS siya.

For situations like this, kelangan din daw pala magdala ng milk formula just in-case, kayo ano pong milk brand ang binigay nio kay baby kasi ang dami ngayong out in  the market.

hi momsie,

my husband was the first one who bought the formula milk for my baby boy that time kc CS din ako..He had an S-26 Gold, but after a month we shifted to NAn-HW1 kc pala colicky c baby..nung nag-NANHW1 na siya, okei na tummy niya..until now he's already 18 mos old, he's still using NAN-HW3 naman..ur pedia could recommend naman whats best for ur baby..ask nyo din siya.but of course, they would encourage to use breastmilk.

Thanks mommy, uu nga noh andyan pala si pedia to give advice as to what formula dapat ibigay ke baby just in case you can't breastfeed, so tamang kailangan may dala ka ng feeding bottles when you get to the hospital. I was thinking kasi na magdala kahit unti when i get to the hospital kaya lang I am not sure what to give kasi I know newborns are very sensitive on what they take.

Nigel's first ever was S-26 Gold. I didnt buy it myself. Prescribed by the pedia before I was discharged because walang makuhang breastmilk sakin so baby. 1 can yun so nauwi ko pa kasi few scoops palang nabigay nila kay Nigel. Tapos hindi hiyang when we got home so before he could even finish that can, bumili na ako ng Lactose-free. Still as prescribed by the pedia.

Hi mga mommies! My baby's first milk was Mylac XL.. Recommended ng pedia niya sa Chinese General Hospital.. hiyang sya don.. SUper lumaki and bumigat sya don.. Thank God, lumaki sya na healthy.. Never pa sya nagkasakit until now.. sana hindi na talaga..:D
Nagstop lang kami sa Mylac series kase yun yung moment na lagi sya out of stock kase magbabago na sila packaging for Mylac. pero all in all, ok sya for me.. :)

with my eldest, enfalac as given by his pedia yun nga lang after a week or two, he started having colic so balik kame sa pedia and she gave us options to try out enfalac lactose free, nanhw1 and isomil. we tried enfalac lactose free, pero ganun pa din so when we switched to NANHW1 dun na siya nahiyang.. until age 1 thats when we changed his milk to progress gold na. kay bunso naman, breastmilk and when I started working his on s26 gold and alternate with NANHW1 pa din kasi nung time na yun nahirapan na din kame maghanap ng s26 gold parating walang stock.

Xian's first milk was Mylax XL as advised by his pedia at MLMC while we're still at the hospital although during that time nagbe-breastfeed din ako.then I switched him to Nan HW1 after 2 weeks since nagkaron sya konting rashes and good thing humiyang sa kanya til the time kelangan na niya ulit magchange ng milk appropriate for his age. :)

PreNAN for my baby, prescribed by her Pedia. 2 days na kasi wala pa ren lumalabas milk from me. On my 3rd day may breastmilk na kaya nakainom na siya saken. Onti lang bigay namen noon as in half oz lang kasi maliit sya pro hindi sya premature. Ngayon mix feeding pa ren ako, but I make sure na mas marami ang naiinom nyang Bmilk :)

hi mga mommies!

just gave birth last june 5, ang binigay ng pedia sa baby ko while nasa lying in ako was S-26 pero hindi niya masyado dinede. nung nandito na kami sa house,madalas sya sumusuka so i asked for a lactose free milk from her pedia kasi baka di sya hiyang dun so we shifted to enfalac lactose free. ok na sya ngayon, sobrang lakas pa dumede. mahina kasi breastmilk ko, lahat na yata ng sabaw nahigop ko pero talagang mahina. now nga wala ng lumalabas kaya milk formula na lang sya.  ;D

Miggy took Similac. Okay talaga siya sa similac.
Tumaba talaga siya, in. Never ako nagka-problem.
Yung pedia niya nag-recommend. Nung nag room-in pa lang si baby saken meron na agad. Bitin kasi sa milk ko. Nagagalit.

same here mommy france, similac din prescribed ng pedia ni AK. iba naman case ko kase wala ako breastmilk, eh super advocate pala ng breastfeeding ang hospital where i gave birth, kaya on the third day pa talaga binigyan si AK ng formula milk. which is ok lang daw kase paglabas naman daw ng babies, hindi pa sila gutom meron silang enough sa katawan nila not to crave. pero of course everyday nagssuck sya saken. kahit walang makuha  :(
