Do you remember the first time you started having questions about your baby? Was it before they were born, maybe the first day you brought them home or the first time they wouldn’t stop crying? There are so many questions and concerns new moms have, thankfully we are surrounded by many women who have been there, and doctors who have answers to our questions.
My advice for new moms would be that teething will pass. This has always been the biggest issue with my children, it caused a lot of endless nights of sleep to disappear and made me feel so loopy without sleep. No matter what I did they just seemed to have a few bursts of high pitch crying. Deep breaths and remember that they are just in pain and don’t know how to communicate it helped me get through it each time.
According to a new national survey from pediatricians, feeding is one of the top three categories that they receive questions about from new moms. Pooping came in second (no puns intended!) and sleep was third. After seeing these statics I was surprised when this was really the order of questions I had as a new mom. When I weaned from breastfeeding to formula with my first child, I was worried about all the different brands of formula and which one is the one to buy.
Another result from the survey is that 71 percent of pediatricians believe that all infant formulas are the same. Did you know that the FDA regulates all infant formulas, including store brands like Wal-Mart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up & Up and they match up to the top name brands just the same. Knowing that I can purchase formula and not have to worry about the name on it and save money puts me at ease. That money can then go elsewhere, like the never ending need to buy diapers. By switching to store brand you can save up to $600 a year on formula! For more formula information and coupons visit www.storebrandformula.com .
