Have Any of You Moms Had Any Experience with Enfamil Gentlease??

I just switched my daughter from Enfamil Premium to Enfamil Gentlease because she was having alot of gas and explosive bowl movements every other day. I noticed she does still have some gas which has to be natural but the biggest thing I notice is she wants to eat every 2 to 2.5 hrs it's like this formula doesn't keep her full long? I wonder is it as nutritional as the Enfamil Premium? Have any of you moms noticed a big change?

Breastfed to Enfamil Next Step or Cow's Milk?

My son is 10 months old and I have been breastfeeding him since birth, and continue to do so at least until he is 1yr old. After that, we'll see. If all goes well, I may continue to bf him a bit longer. If I do wean him at 12-15 months, should I give him cow's whole milk or should I start him on Enfamil Next Step which is for toddlers 9-24months. Any thoughts? Thank you!

Enfamil Lipil (Gentle) vs Similac Advance with Iron

Our second son is three weeks old. we nursed for the first week and a half while weaning to Similac Advance with Iron. Our son does well enough on formula in general but spits up and has some minor gas (some fussiness but doesn't seem to have an issue passing the gas and stools are what they should be). But, since he does spit up (not a ton but more than a little on most bottles - and we burp plenty) and has the minor fussienss we decided to switch to Enfamil Lipil Gentle formula. But he is still spitting up - is there even a difference...

Baby Crying While Bottle Feeding at 4 Months, Starting Formula

We are transitioning from breastmilk to formula for my 4 month old baby. As we are increasing the amount of formula per feeding (every feeding is mixed with some breastmilk), we are noticing that he seems to turn his head to the side and cry for the first few minutes. After this time he will sometimes get the hang of it and finish the bottle, but sometimes he will end up only taking a few ounces. It does not seem to be gas related. I am wondering what may be causing this--pain, distraction, etc. It seems to be about the same for...

Allergic to Enfamil?

My 3 month old has had feeding issues since he was a month old. He gets a stomach ache/cramps/gas and has bad reflux and nothing helped. Suspected milk allergy, switched to Enfamil Nutramigen but didn't seem to get much better. Tried Similac Alimentum and saw a huge improvement after a week. But if we give him the Enfamil, all his symptoms come back. Belly ache, cramping, gas, reflux gets worse and he chokes/aspirates and spits up all day. He is super fussy and cranky. He fights sleep during the day and wakes up more through the night. He...

Enfamil Lipil Next Step

Has anyone used Enfamil Next Step as an alternative to milk for the nutrient content after their child turns one? Did you get your doctor to agree that this was a good idea? The Vitamin C, A and D are much higher and they advertize it for 9-24 months. Any ideas for or against would be great. I have a 14 month old who hates veggies.

Similac Vs. Enfamil

Hello Mommies! I have a newborn, only 13 days old. We've figured out she has a milk intolerance so we started giving her Similac Alimentum formula about a week ago. Since, she has gotten better but now, about 20 mins after she eats, she goes through a rough period where she obviously uncomfortable, inconsolable crying, squirming, grunting, etc. I have heard that Similac products are harder on their systems than Enfamil products. I want to switch her to Enfamil Nutramagen but I'm waiting for the doctor to call me back. By the way, the...

Enfamil Lipil A.R. Formula

Has anyone tried Enfamil Lipil A.R. formula? My baby spits up all the time and I don't think she has reflux because she's been on Prevacid for 8 weeks and still spits up. She doesn't seem to be uncomfortable when eating and doesn't cry when she spits up. She has been on Gentlease for 6 months but the spitting up hasn't decreased at all. Would this A.R. formula even be appropriate for her?

DHA Supplement with Prenatal Vitamins?

I was talking to my sister in law and she said that on top of the prenatal vitamins a pregnant woman should also take a DHA supplement along with it. I did some research and those DHA supplement can be pretty pricey. Just want to ask fellow mamas out there if it is necessary to take DHA supplement with prenatal vitamins during pregnancy. Thanks.
