What to Do if You Can’t Breast Feed  

Breast milk is the perfect food – it provides baby with just the right amount of nutrients and antibodies. However, not every situation allows for a baby to be breast fed and more often than not, parents must make the decision to switch to infant formula. 

Some moms make a decision to wean their baby off of breast milk for one reason or another. Some mothers have challenges including medical reasons why they cannot nurse. Adoption or foster care is another reason why a baby cannot receive mother's milk. If you fall under any of these categories, you may have felt guilty or even some anxiety over the situation. It’s perfectly normal to experience one or more of these feelings, however, there’s no reason you still can’t provide your baby with the very best when bottle feeding. 

Here at My Organic Formula, we’ve made it our personal mission to provide healthy and safe feeding alternatives for babies, and we’re here to help if you’re wondering what to do if you can’t breast feed. 

Find Support

If you’ve switched to giving your baby formula, we recommend connecting with other parents who’ve also done the same. The more support you have, the better. Knowing you’re not the only parent who’s experiencing feelings of anxiety or guilt is comforting for many and, you may also get some great information in the process. 

You may want to consider joining a parenting group or you connect with other parents through child development blogs and websites.

Find a Formula

Finding the right formula for your baby is not always easy, but we hope we can make the process painless. We have hand-selected all of the formulas we carry, and only offer our customers the best and safest infant formulas on the market. The formulas we carry like Holle and Lebenswert never have ingredients like:

  • Added sugars

Why Organic Formulas are Best Formulas  

Organic baby formula like those from Europe can provide many benefits! Many of our customers have seen the difference that certified-organic formula can have on baby. After giving your baby an organic formula like HiPP, you may notice more regular bowel movements and less gas. You may also notice less spit up after a feeding and a happier baby overall. Loulouka is made from premium, whole Swiss milk. There is a lot of thought that goes into the quality ingredients of the brands we carry.

Find a Good Bottle 

What’s the best bottle for your baby? The best bottle for your baby is the one your baby likes the most! There’s not one perfect bottle for every baby, which is why you may have to try a few brands before finding one your little one likes. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of bottle brands, designs, and materials to choose from. Your parent support or your pediatrician can offer their recommendations.
