I have been nursing James, for nine months now. However, my milk supply is not what it used to be and I have decided to start supplementing with formula. I am excited to share Gerber® Good Start® Soothe formula and Gerber Soothe® probiotic colic drops.
James has had a sensitive stomach since the first day he was born. Since I have been nursing James I need to be careful what foods I eat, as James would get gassy and fussy. My husband and I have spent so many hours and sleepless nights with poor little James screaming in pain from his colic. The excessive crying and baby fussiness can easily take its toll on the overall mood of the home.
What is Colic?
If your baby is healthy and crying for more than three hours a day, three times a week for more than three weeks, there is a chance that your baby is suffering from Colic. Colic is a symptom of digestive discomfort. Your little ones form of communicating this discomfort is through excessive crying. Research indicates that colic may be caused by a type of bacteria within the infant’s digestive system. Probiotics may help support a healthy bacteria within the digestive tract to help combat the bad bacteria.
Gerber Soothe® probiotic colic drops are clinically shown to reduce crying time by 50%. What I love about these Gerber Soothe® probiotic colic drops is that you can give them to your baby by putting the drops on your breast during nursing, mix with your breast milk or formula in a bottle, or by a spoon. Do know that Gerber Soothe® probiotic colic drops are a probiotic supplement and that the product is not intended to treat or cure any disease.
Gerber Good Start Soothe Infant Formula
When searching for formulas I wanted to find something that was easy for James to digest so that James could be comfortable and the fussiness would stop. The Gerber Soothe® probiotic colic drops have been working for us, but I didn’t want to go backward when switching to formula and have a fussy baby again.
I feel so blessed to have discovered Gerber® Good Start® Soothe formula as James has been increasingly less fussy. Gerber drops and the formula contain L. reuteri which is a similar probiotic found in breastmilk. James immediately took to the Gerber® Good Start® Soothe formula and bottle, which was such a relief. Gerber® promises “Less crying babies, more smiling for all”, so far I have not experienced any excessive crying since switching to Gerber® Good Start® Soothe formula. Lots of smiles in this household and mama is actually getting some sleep at night! Gerber® Good Start® Soothe formula is a routine infant formula and is not intended to treat or cure disease.
I would like to thank Gerber® Soothe for sponsoring today’s post. Also for encouraging me to speak about my experiences with baby colic and excessive crying.
