We had discussed trying a couple of soy formulas or driving to Germany to see what our options are there, but enough is enough. There is no guarantee those would work any better.
We know a formula that works well for him. He was always happy and smiling on that formula. He slept well and woke up cheerful and alert. He rarely spit up, and when he did it was a very small amount.
Even though it is not available in Switzerland, we are switching back to the US formula.
One of GLH's colleagues is in the US on business this week. She is bringing us a supply of formula when she returns this weekend.
Another person we know, who's husband is in the US Army, is bringing us a case when she visits us in mid-December. They stock it at the commissary on the base in Southern Germany.
My parents are bringing two suitcases full of formula when they come for New Year's.
Virtually every time we visit the US, or someone visits us or we have friends making a trip to the US we intend to look at them with pleading eyes.
One way or another, we will figure out how to keep up the supply of infant formula for the next 10 months or so until our baby transitions from formula to solid foods.
It will be complicated, but we are determined to make it work. Global Baby deserves a Happy Stomach.
