Aden has been drinking Dumex Mamex formula milk ever since I stop breastfeeding. Thank God he is ok with it all this while, hence we never thought of switching brands for him.
But things changed lately as some of the baby's formula milk were being recalled, due to contamination, and Dumex Mamex is one of it :(
I can't tell if the tin at home was affected but for the sake of Aden, I decided to stop feeding him that and went survey/study other brands immediately.
Was shocked when I read about the news!
Well, as a first time mum, I think it's no surprise that I am so worried about it! Though Aden is still doing ok, I want to be safe than sorry, who can guarantee things will be fine right?
But at the same time, I am in dilemma whether to buy another tin of the same brand or take this opportunity to introduce Aden to other brands. Switching formula milk for a baby/toddler can be a good thing, but also can be a nightmare, I personally believe it's a type of 'knowledge'. We have to watch out for any tummy upset, change of color/frequency in stool, and even skin allergies. Since Aden is doing fine with Dumex all this while, that's why we never thought of switching.
Anyway, I asked opinions from other mummies friends and after much consideration, I decided to give Bellamy's organic milk a try.
Couldn't find this at my hometown so have to order online, thank God their service was fast, I received it the next day.
Aden has been taking this for 3 days now and so far, nothing unwanted happens (touchwood!). But the only changes I noticed is the frequency of his bowel habits. He poops 3-4 times per day (sometimes even more) when he was with Dumex, but only 1-2 times these few days. I wonder does it have to do with the new formula milk?
Hubby suggested to switch back to Dumex, well, I don't know! Perhaps I shall monitor for a few more days?
Well mummies out there, mind to share your thoughts on this? Appreciate that!
