Weeks 3-6

Ethan turned 6 weeks on Friday! I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed! Each week so far has been a new experience and there have definitely been ups and downs. Nothing can prepare you for motherhood. It is the toughest thing I have ever experienced in my life. I go back to work in a week and I feel like that will be a break 🙂 I’m feeding him about 2/3 formula 1/3 breastmilk. Last week (week 5) he was extremely fussy and needed to be held constantly. I started him on a different formula with less lactose and I think that that’s been helping, he seems to be much happier. The options for baby formula are terrible. Corn Syrup is the #1 ingredient in the Enfamil Gentlease formula (less lactose). I ordered one can from Diapers.com and that will be the last. I can’t understand how these companies can get away with this. The best formula I’ve found so far is Baby’s Only, though it’s extremely hard to find. Every other formula has DHA in it. You would assume that would be a good thing, but from doing some research it’s not. The DHA in formula is manufactured.  Anyway, that’s all for now 🙂
