I've learned a lot since then, but at first I absorbed a lot of guilt from extremely zealous "lactivist" types (other mothers, lactation consultants, etc.) who sometimes spread a great deal of misinformation about the size of neonates' stomachs, the quality of formula, and the merits of breastmilk and breastfeeding itself to keep women breastfeeding at any cost. Breast is good, sure, but it isn't best if children suffer due to insufficient feeding. "Babies experience hunger as suffering" is one of the most important statements I have ever read. The truth is, what is best varies.
Just a little tip: if your baby constantly nurses around the clock (read: is never satisfied and wants to remain constantly latched to the breast,) this is not "clusterfeeding" or simply "a growth spurt." If never satisfied, the baby isn't getting enough milk and if you do not act quickly to address this, your baby can experience significant harm. All that said to say this: contrary to what these lactivist-types would have you believe, the fact is, a decent percentage of women cannot produce sufficient milk to exclusively breastfeed, and infant formula is safe, rigorously tested, and healthy. Read about it. Formula is good and, sometimes, it's best.
Anyway, end tangent. I just hope to help another mother who has experienced pressure from others to trust her own intellect and instinct.
My baby started on Enfamil Premium Newborn. I switched to Gentlease then finally to Similac Sensitive, which has less lactose and contains protein ISOLATE which is easier to digest, even for adults, than whey protein "concentrate" found in Gentlease. (Ask any health nut, bodybuilder, or dietician and they will say the same.) The difference in my child was night and day after the first feeding. No more feeding issues. Very little spit-up now, which only occurs occasionally and directly after feedings.
So thankful for this product!

It was important to me that I find a formula that I felt comfortable with and be confident in my choice. My daughter has loved her Similac since we started her on it and we never looked back. She does very well with this sensitive version since it's easy on her little stomach and it keeps her comfortable and satiated. We love our Similac and will continue to use it through her first birthday.
