Is Enfamil Lipil with iron a good formula?

I'm a first time mom and i'm not going to breastfeed, so i was wondering about what formula to use. I know a iron fortified formula is best but i don't know what formula to use. I'm considering Enfamil Lipil with iron but quite a few moms told me that it causes constipation,doesn't mix well,taste bad, and doesnt digest well. I need some more advice!!! Is it a good formula???

  • I have used Enfamil Lipil for both my boys and have not had any problems with it. I have never had it not mix well or give my little guys consitpation. If you mix correctly then you should be fine. Go to the enfamil website and sign up for coupons and samples.

  • Oh honey, prepare for the breast feeding bashers!

    Ask your doctor what they recomend for formula. Every baby is different and tolerates different formulas in different ways.
