I have recently switched from nursing to formula...
I made it for 8 months... I said I would stop when it got creepy or LB got teeth...
She got teeth... ..and I got done.
Which brings me to this question:
Does anyone else think that the formula reeks???!
We first used Enfamil (or, should I say EnfaSMELL?) and I thought that it smelled awful.... and then I moved onto the Similac..... WHOA! I mean SimiGAG!
It literally took my breath away!!!
I feel bad for feeding it to LB, but she takes it like a champ!
We think she might like all things putrid... the more rotten the better... Poor kid!
Seriously, though! I have tried mixing it with warm water, cold water, room temperature water... and it just smells SO BAD!!!
The canisters are not close to expiring, and we tried a few cans of each.. just to be sure we didn't get a bad batch or something!!!
It doesn't stink in the can.. and the water doesn't stink... mix it together and HOLY STENCH!!!
Somebody PLEASE tell me that that is just how formula smells and I'm not feeding my baby daughter some rancid death water...
I don't think it should smell like roses.... but I don't want to gag every time I make a bottle... and then have to feed said bottle to an innocent child who doesn't know that what she is eating smells worse than ... month old garbage! ...and that month old garbage has rotting food and other nasty odors permeating from it....
*shudder* ugh! Nasty!
..I COULD be exaggerating a TINY bit... but not that much... it REALLY stinks. I wish I could somehow post the smell for you all to enjoy.
Next up, we have Gerber Good Start.... Please, wish us a heavenly scent!
I hope we can call it Gerber Good Scent and not Gerber Smells like fart!
