As much as we love all those precious little new baby moments, some of them are just kinda ugly. And when you’re sleep deprived, that can send you right over the edge. New moms, I encourage you to find the silver lining and learn to laugh. Because sometimes the alternative is a good cry and ain’t nobody got time for that on the regular.
Silver Linings In Less-Than-Perfect New Mom Moments
The Diaper Blow Out: It never fails. You finally get the diaper bag packed, your purse is ready, the dog has been let out, you’ve got the baby in the car seat carrier, and you hear it. All moms know the sound of a diaper blow out, the kid the goes right up the back.
The Silver Lining: You never liked that outfit the baby is wearing anyway. This is a good excuse to just trash it because no one is cleaning up that mess today.
Spit Up All Over You: You are holding your sweet baby over your shoulder, all snuggly, when you feel it. The warm, wet feeling of baby spit up hitting your back. If you’re lucky, you even caught a bunch in your hair. Who needs a burp cloth when you are a human sponge?
The Silver Lining: Girl, you are LONG overdue for a shower and now you have no choice. Pass that baby off to someone else and hop in. Make it hot and long, and thank your baby when you get out.
2am Feedings: Is this baby ever going to sleep through the night? One day he will but for now, your tired self is on baby feeding duty at all hours. Get up, mama. That baby has to eat.
The Silver Lining: Middle-of-the-night snuggles don’t last forever, and they are some of the most precious times with your little one. Plus all those 90s reruns you don’t want anyone to know you indulge in are on TV right around this time. Shhh…that’s our secret.
While we’re trying to find the silver lining in many of the monkey wrenches being a new parent throws at us, one thing that doesn’t need to stress you out is figuring out what to feed your baby when they pop up for the 5th time in one night to eat….again.
PARENT’S CHOICE™ HMO INFANT FORMULA
Parent’s Choice™ HMO Infant Formula, available at Walmart, is a comparable to national brands in every way, except it’s more affordable. Anything more affordable when it comes to babies is a win. Those little cuties are pricey enough!
Wary of switching to another formula brand? What you feed your baby is a big decision, so don’t take it lightly. Feel confident with Parents Choice: It was named Baby Bargains’ Best Infant Formula of 2018!
Parent’s Choice™ HMO Infant Formulas Benefits
Are you familiar with this ‘HMO’ acronym? HMO stands for human milk oligosaccharide (HMO), a prebiotic that helps establish beneficial bacteria for immune support.
The oligosaccharide, 2’-fucosyllactose (2′ -FL) is found naturally and is abundant in most mothers’ breast milk. This formula is designed to help a baby’s immune system be more like the immune system of a breastfed baby. Amazing!
Parent’s Choice™ Sensitivity® Infant Formula and Parent’s Choice™ Advantage® Infant Formula feature 2’-FL HMO and are now available exclusively in Walmart stores. The infant formulas feature a blend of nutrients that supports baby’s growth and development. And they are comparable to other national brands (but less pricey – yes, please!):
- Parent’s Choice™ Advantage®: Compare to the Nutrition of Similac PRO-ADVANCE®
- Parent’s Choice™ Sensitivity®: Compare to the Nutrition of Similac PRO-SENSITIVE®
This formula provides complete nutrition for the first year of life, DHA, Lutein & Vitamin E to support growth, and it contains non-GMO ingredients. Parent’s Choice™ is clearly a great choice for mamas and their babies!
