I love my Job! I have been a teacher for nine years and I absolutely love what I do. It’s become a part of who I am. I always thought that this would be the perfect profession for when I became a mom and it totally is. However, one of the things I loved most about my job was coaching the softball team. I had done it so long that I didn’t know if I could not do it. If you catch my drift.
Then came Grey. The most perfect baby on the earth, in my opinion, but Matt says I’m never wrong. Quitting coaching was a must when he came along. There would be nights when I would be coaching until 8 or 9 at night and I wanted to be with him as much as possible.
Then there was the decision of whether I would go back to work at all. We were kind of in a weird transition, Matt just graduating and me with a career. I had always wanted to be a stay at home mom, I knew that what I used to want isn’t what I wanted now. I had an internal dilemma; going back to work after Grey was born was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made.
I knew that being full-time was going to make breast feeding hard, and I’ll be honest that I didn’t love it either. It was hard to get him to latch on and I always felt uncomfortable. I breast fed for 6 weeks and then we had to find a formula that we felt comfortable with; something that would ease my mind about the fact that I was not breast feeding my child anymore.
I am totally a worrier; how would my decision to formula feed my infant affect his cognitive development? We did research and found that the formulas are getting closer and closer to being as beneficial as breast milk. One formula brand we like was Enfamil®, they are dedicated to understanding the nutritional benefits of breast milk. They had come up withthrough that dedicated focus. Enfamil® is backed by decades of research on breast milk and multiple clinical studies on its brain building power.
New (So far, we are seeing that Grey loves his formula and is growing up to be a healthy and strong little boy.formula has a brain-building fat-protein blend of MFGM and DHA previously only found in breast milk*. Which was super comforting in our search for a formula that would help Grey grow and develop. We found that MFGM has been clinically shown to help close the gap in cognitive development between formula-fed and breastfed infants**
