Before working with Dr. Young, I felt totally overwhelmed by selecting the "right" formula for Wyatt. It seemed like a daunting process. We had just been through a really difficult pregnancy and were extremely fortunate that Wyatt was born full term and healthy, aside from a rough case of acid reflux. I was emotionally and physically exhausted after the pregnancy and was barely producing any milk. I tried to do some research on formula as it was clear I would not be able to breastfeed. I was thrilled to see that she offered consultations.
Dr. Young was instrumental in helping us find the right formula for Wyatt. She listened to our situation and what factors were important to us in terms of selecting a formula. She gave us two options and clearly laid out the pros and cons to each. She also instructed us on how to best switch Wyatt from his current formula to the new formula and how to incorporate any breast milk I was producing. She also gave us things to look out for to see if Wyatt was adjusting well to the new formula.
The new formula was definitely better for him, but over the next few weeks after our consultation, it became clear that Wyatt had a really tough case of acid reflux/GERD. We did another consultation with Dr. Young and she was able to recommend **** formula. She also gave me the confidence and tools to explain the formula choice to the gastroenterologists we were seeing to address Wyatt's GERD. That formula was awesome for Wyatt and he stayed on it, happily, until he weaned off of formula all together.
She really went above and beyond. She guided us to the right formula within a few weeks of him being born. It would have taken much longer, if we were successful at all, without Dr. Young. We are forever grateful to have had her on our team.
