Three-month-old Adelina’s doing much better than she was just over a week ago.

On May 15, her mom Natalya Renteria was up in the middle of the night looking for Enfamil Gentlease.

She says it was impossible to find so she settled on a brand she hadn’t used before.

“It was liquid form. And I had already kind of been skeptical,” said Renteria.

She says Adelina started to get a rash after the first bottle.

“It wasn’t just her face, it was half of her body. And that’s when we decided that we needed to get her into the doctor immediately,” said Adelina’s grandmother, Jessica Reyes.

Reyes says they rushed the baby to CHI Health Saint Elizabeth.

“I said, ‘wait, she’s not breathing,’ and the nurse turned around and snatched her took off with her. We just went running behind her but it just was — it was heart-wrenching because her face just turned blue and she just was so limp in my arms,” said Reyes.
