“You are only as happy as your unhappiest child.”
Annabelle is a pretty easy baby. At least that’s what her grandmothers tell me. As a first time mom who endures the occasional teething fit or late night crying session, I gladly take their word for it. I do generally agree, however, that my 11 month old is a happy, healthy, fuss-less little girl most of the time. Breastfeeding has been simple for both of us and she has never been sick or had any digestive problems . . . until recently.
Because my baby is so easy-going, the world seems at odds when she is uncomfortable. There has definitely been some discomfort going on lately, in the nether regions of all places. It’s not always fun to discuss “poop” situations in cyberspace but if I feel like I can help another family by doing so, I am game.
My goal with breastfeeding was to make it to one year and hooray, we are only weeks away! I have been weaning her little by little and upon my pediatrician’s recommendation. The combination of feeding Annabelle more table food and less breast milk has caused some “hardening” in her bowel movements. It’s not a constant problem, only an occasional one, but it can truly wreak havoc on our household when it does occur.
A close friend suggested that I try a new product from the trustworthy Enfamil line of formula products. It’s called Reguline and let me tell you, it totally works for us. No ifs, ands, or buts about it! When I notice that Annabelle could use some assistance in the softening of her stools, I open up an 8 ounce ready-to-use plastic bottle of Enfamil Reguline, pour it into her sippy cup, and she drinks it without hesitation. There’s a noticeable difference and she’s a happy girl again which makes me a happy mom again too.
What is Enfamil Reguline? It’s an everyday infant formula that has a blend of two prebiotics which help feed the good bacteria in a baby’s digestive tract with a type of carbohydrate also found in breast milk. Reguline is specifically designed to promote soft, comfortable stools and to help support digestive health. It provides complete nutrition and can be used from infancy to 12 months.
Enfamil Reguline has made my favorite baby products list because it did exactly what it claims to do for my baby, it helps keep our baby regular. We want to make the most of each and every precious day during Annabelle’s first year of life so there’s no room for days of discomfort. I highly recommend this formula for any mother who has a child suffering from occasional constipation.
