I am so incredibly pissed about the recent formula recall. I feel frustrated, angry, and helpless because as an adoptive mom, I have no option but to give Baby Jay formula.
During Baby Jay’s month with us, we fed him liquid pre-mixed baby formula because it was ‘easier’. Then after a month, we switched to powered formula, Sim.i.lac. powered formual. A few days later, Baby Jay became very grumpy and cranky and we gave him “gripe water” to calm him down.
Because of his reaction, we decided to go back to the pre-mixed liquid formula and, eventually, Baby Jay calmed down. At the time, I though it was developmental; many babies become ‘colicy’ during the ’fourth trimester’ or during their first three months out of the womb.
Since then the powered formula has been sitting on my shelf because I was thinking we could return to it at a later date; afterall it is much, much cheaper.But I just checked the lot number and learned that my formula powder is contaminated.
And I’m pissed.
Yes, he only had it for a few days, but I am livid about the fact that he was exposed to it at all.Yes, we will get a full refund, but I could care less about the money at this point.
And to top it all off,I found a bug in my liquid formula. I have called the FDA and they have opened up a case. Stay tuned.
