The first thing I am going to say, because we are online and it can so quickly go uncivilized, that this is not a breastfeeding vs formula debate.
But I do want to discuss something.
Why the HELL does my sons formula have SUGAR and Corn Syrup in it?
This week randomly I realized that the Similac Sensitive has the first two ingredients as this:
Here, let me get closer.
I am going to not sit over here and pretend I am a world class healthy eater. Sure, I am great with portion control and am not overweight (save for the 5 pounds I still need to lose from pregnancy) but I do my fair share of going out to eat and drinking cokes.
You already know that if you read my blog.
But I am an adult.
My son is a newborn.
Why would a baby formula ever need added sugar? Giving it the benefit of the doubt that it was some sort of “requirement” in the processing (hey, I’m stretching here), I checked other sample formulas in my home and couldn’t find these two ingredients listed in the few I checked.
Keep in mind that this is my “Dr. approved” formula.
I am not trying to put little P on a diet or anything, but can anyone answer WHY my 5.5 week old is getting supplemental sugar mixed in with his nutrients?
