    Age Old Question of Enfamil vs Similac vs Others… I Chose Enfamil, October 26, 2016

    [[[ THE STORY ]]]
    Without going into too much detail, as new parents, you try to prepare for your child as much as possible. In our case, we were waiting for the arrival of our baby daughter. My wife planned on breastfeeding but as a precaution, I purchased a single tub of Enfamil for Supplementing and a single tub of Enfamil Newborn Infant Formula as a precautionary measure. After all, you can return unused products to the store. Better safe than sorry is my motto.

    It ended up that precautionary step paid off. Unfortunately, the unexpected happened and our daughter was born prematurely due to pregnancy complications during the 3rd trimester. She was in the NICU for 7 days and during that time frame, we visited every 3 hours, every day, for 7 days to nurse her. However, my wife was not producing enough breastmilk and after the first few times nursing, the hospital had to supplement our baby with formula. We asked for Enfamil, but they were a “Similac-sponsored” hospital. Therefore, all they had to give my daughter was Similac products. Even after we brought our daughter home, we had to follow the routine of nursing + formula. They gave us several samples of Similac Advance with the Early Shield logo and my wife and I decided to keep her on it since she was doing well, but around the same time, Similac Advance w/ OptiGRO was released. Stores now carry Similac Advance w/ OptiGRO (Early Shield branded Similac formulas are now gone around my area). I’m not sure how much changed between Similac Advance – Early Shield to Similac Advance – OptiGRO, but when I transition my daughter to the OptiGRO formula, she started having a little bit of constipation. After that bout of constipation, we decided to take a stab to the Enfamil brand. Since the Similac OptiGRO, we’ve transitioned from Enfamil Supplementing (when my wife was breastfeeding), to Enfamil Newborn, to Enfamil Infant.

    [[[ THE REASONING ]]]
    So many of you may be asking why I decided to switch to Enfamil. Prior to deciding on Enfamil, I did a lot of research. Much of the research I found were simply just people’s opinions, with no scientific/clinical claims to back them up. A lot of the reasoning was “my baby cried/was fussy on formula X, so we switched to formula Y”. Simply put, just because a child does well on one does not mean he/she will do well on another formula.

    After further research, I learned that much of the differences between formulas out there on the market is based on composition of protein/fats/carbs. I stumbled across a site for a pediatrician named Dr. Sears. Based on his Wiki Bio: William Penton Sears is an American pediatrician and the author or co-author of more than 30 parenting books, most notably several in the “Sears Parenting Library.” He is a frequent guest on television talkshows, where he goes by the name Dr. Bill. He and his wife Martha Sears, R.N., are among the leading proponents of the attachment parenting philosophy. He is a medical and parenting consultant for BabyTalk and Parenting magazines and the pediatrician on the website Parenting.com.[2] According to his biography, he has been a guest on more than 100 television shows including: 20/20, Donahue, Good Morning America, Oprah Winfrey, CBS This Morning, CNN, Today Show and Dateline.”

    [[[ PROTEINS ]]]
    Based on his research, he compares 3 major brands: Similac, Enfamil, Carnation. The main difference between these 3 are the whey/casein protein ratios. Each company has their reasoning for such, but in comparison to breast milk, the whey/casein ratios consist of the following:

    Breastmilk: 70/30
    Enfamil: 60/40
    Similac 48/52 (Previously 18/82 before reformulation)
    Carnation: 100/0

    As you can tell, Carnation & Enfamil claim their formulas are most like human milk, while Similac makes their claims on baby’s blood analysis, not what’s in the can.

    [[[ FATS ]]]
    There are five types of vegetable oils used in all baby formulas. These are palm olein, soy, coconut, safflower, and sunflower. Each formula may have different blends of all these oils to comprise of a balances between saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids to make it most like what is found in breastmilk. Based on Dr. Sears’ claims, Enfamil has actually published a study that their product has a fatty acid profile similar to breastmilk.

    As for DHA, it used to be a problem back a couple years ago, but most of US-made formulas now have a synthetic version of DHA fatty acids added.

    Cholesterol unfortunately, is not found in any formula. Despite hearing bad things about cholesterol as adults, breastmilk actually contains lots of cholesterol and scientific studies show that it’s a fat needed for optimal brain development.

    [[[ CARBS ]]]
    Similac & Enfamil both contain 100% lactose-based carbs while Carnation is a 70/30 ratio of…

    Worked Well as a Supplement While Waiting for Milk to Come In, November 25, 2015
    By 
    Christopher B. (Raleigh, NC) –

    This review is from: Enfamil Newborn Baby Formula – 2 fl oz Plastic Nursette Bottles,6 Count (Pack of 4) (Health and Beauty)
    We recently had our first child and learned after a couple days that he was not getting quite enough nourishment, as my wife’s milk had not yet fully come in. Breastfeeding was important to us and we did not want to give up completely. Our doctor suggested supplementing regular breastfeeding with Enfamil formula and gave us a sample of these bottles to try. We’ve been pleased with the ease-of-use and portability the bottles provide. Our baby seems to be pleased as well.

    A few helpful notes:
    – Bottles are ready to use and require no mixing or adding of water
    – These bottles are sealed and can be stored at room temperature. Manufacturer suggests avoiding “excessive exposure to heat and light”
    – The product does not come with a nipple(s). We found that any standard bottle nipple will fit
    – The label on each bottle is marked with a mL guide so you can quickly see at a glance how much of the product your baby has consumed during a feeding
    – The box, as well as each individual bottle, is stamped with an expiration date. The bottles we received in our initial order expired approximately 9 months from the date we received them
    – You will need to shake each bottle well as some of the contents tend to settle and stick to the bottom of the bottle. 5-10 seconds of shaking seems to do the trick
    – Manufacturer suggests to “use formula within one hour or discard” once opened
    – Bottles are stamped #5 PP (Polypropylene)

    We found these bottles to be superior to powdered formula simply because of how easy they are to use. No measuring, no mess, no running downstairs to make a bottle when baby is hungry. We keep these in his nursery where my wife nurses, and they are immediately available when needed. A bit more expensive than power and perhaps considerably lazier on our part? Probably. But when you’re only getting a couple hours of sleep each night, every bit counts!

    Great product but BYON-bring your own (bottle) nipple., July 16, 2016

    This formula is thicker than what you get when you use powder, but I throw these in my diaper bag and I’m ready to go when I need to go somewhere and it’s going to be feeding time. It’s only 2 ounces, so at a few weeks, they rip through 2 or 3 bottles, but they’re small and so easy to throw in a purse, etc. too.
    Caveat: NO NIPPLES INCLUDED but i found that a top of one of my bottles fit, so make sure you get a nipple that fits these bottles!
