blank'/> A LITTLE BIT OF LACQUER: Supplementing with Formula

January 14, 2018

Supplementing with Formula

Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to touch back on a topic that is near and dear to my heart, and that is feeding baby. If you all follow my stories on IG, you know I'm always sharing shots of pumping at work - it's a hard job! I get asked a ton of questions after these posts and I always refer people to this huge pumping post I did a while back. It's got every tip I could think in there about pumping, and even a bit on supplementing with formula.


But I still get so many questions on whether it's ok the supplement that I wanted to dedicate a post on it. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SUPPLEMENTING WITH FORMULA. I always like to joke that I was exclusively formula-fed (I was) and I'm healthy and happy and most days relatively smart, Nathan too! Of course we now know that breast feeding has a ton of benefits for both mama and baby, so I think all of us now aim to be able to breastfeed. But sometimes it's not always possible to exclusively breast feed, and I am 100% against ever shaming a mama for this! I'm in the camp that believes at the end of the day FED IS BEST. So if you have to supplement here or there, or consistently, you do what you gotta do! Love your baby and provide them the best that you can (including the best you, which means not killing yourself over one aspect of providing for them)!  
  

Ro is 10-months now and since about the 8-month point I've had to start supplementing a bottle or two daily. I can only realistically pump once daily at lunch time so my supply has taken a huge hit. And she's eating nearly everything as far as solids now so she really isn't nursing/drinking breastmilk as much as she was prior to eating as much "real food." Initially I was spending a lot on name brand formula, but I later learned that the FDA has very specific nutrient requirements for infant formula and most are overall the same. So I started saving a bit of money and buying store brand formulas. Most recently we used Comforts Infant Formulas that have all of the vitamins and minerals baby needs (and come pediatrician recommended). They just came out with non-GMO Infant Formulas that are produced using ingredients that haven't been genetically engineered; we love this one (it's equivalent in nutrition to the Enfamil Infant formula we were using previously)!


I also love the storage container of this formula - it has a tab that keeps the scoop up and out of the formula (I always hated having to stick my fingers into the formula, even with clean hands) and a nifty little corner for leveling the scoop. Little things but they make a difference! Hope you guys appreciated this quick post. I really just wanted to normalize supplementing a bit more and share a brand that has been helping me save some money (and sanity, pumping is no joke). Breath easy mamas, you got this! Thanks so much to Comforts Brand for sponsoring this discussion! Comforts Infant Formula can be found exclusively at any Kroger family of stores.

  1. TryVexin Male Enhancement Be sure that the meals include nutrientrich foods and limit your portions more than you would if you followed a mealday plan of school. DHEA DHEA Dehydroepiandrosterone is another testosterone level. It doesnt work too well by themselves. http://jackedmuscleextremeadvice.com/tryvexin-male-enhancement/

  2. ERX Pro I make early every day and eat an energy protein bar about minutes before working out and have a hi protein breakfast afterward. The residual day its meat and veggies with small servings of starchy foods and virtually nothing sugar. https://www.healthsupreviews.com/erx-pro-male-enhancement/

  3. Thanks for easing the debate about formula feeding. I have to supplement with formula, because of my low milk supply and I had to fight so much battles, because many women had the opinion, that I just didn´t try hard enough. I really did my best to choose the best formula and even bought it from europe on https://myorganicformula.com/collections/holle-organic-formula/, because in the US our quality standards aren´t as high as in europe. But all the pain, thoughts and guilt I´ve been through, didn´t care the women, who were judging me. So thank you for your voice!

    Love, Kelly

  6. ★ HACKING is a broad term Engagement.
    It depends on what you want to hack. Mobile device,PC or Website, emails etc
    I will brief you through the process of hacking and securing Website since most of the Hackers are after it. All the startup owners or aspirants should know.
    In order to hack you need Information hell of alot.📂📔📗📘📖

    Wanna hack website Or A Database ?

    • You need to get it’s Ip addresses, Open Ports,file transfer medium (FTP or SSH),Email addresses,Detecting Insecure code(SQLi & SSH),System architecture ( 64 bit, 32 bit).🔍🔍

    • Ok so why do we need these informations???❓❓❓

    • Open Ports : If there is an open port that means website is ready to listen to connection . Take example of FTP open ports. If it’s open then it can be bruteforced ).🔆🔆

    • Tip: Use SSH instead of ftp, it’s secure and encrypted mean when you send files over SSH first thing it does is encrypts your files So even if hacker gain access to your files they will see encrypted files not plain texts.✅✅

    • Emails? Email is needed for social engineering. With just a one click a backdoor will be installed in your system/browser. There is incredibly powerful software for exploiting that is BEEF pre-installed in kali All you need is to do is send hook.js file to your victim and trick him to click(Which is easy) and BAM start doing evil things.⏯⏯

    • Tip : if you type whois http://yourdomain.com in Linux you will find details like Domain registrar email address,phone number his address etc . So when you register your domain and purchase hosting do buy icann protection with it, it does not cost that much. in this way you will be able to protect your info.

    • Detecting SQLi vulnerability is easy just write single inverted comma after url php?id=1 Like php?id=1′ if it returns an error .Then It’s ready to be hacked.

    • TIP Use PDO instead of Mysqli or Mysql. If you are not familiar with PDO(can also be used with MYSQLi) then make sure you use htmlspecialchars and htmlentities. Example: Lets say you are getting value from browser. Do below thing to make your code secure
    if(isset($_POST[“Name”])
    {
    $name=htmlentities($_POST[“Name”]);
    }

    This is the least you can do to protect yourself from hackers agianst SQLi.
