those who use Enfamil A.R.

Does anyone else have trouble getting this stuff mixed up well? It chunks up on me so bad and I even use a mixer, after slowly mixing it with a fork a little at a time.

  • I hated it... it always look so gross and thick to me. I switched his formula and just added a little cereal.

  • After my breast milk ran out, the only formula my son would drink was the Enfamil Lacto-Free. He hated everything else we tried. The Lacto-Free seems a lot smoother and it mixes really well, even with cold water.

    This wasn't part of your question, but the first mother to answer mentioned it... As far as adding cereal, if you're thinking about it, I recommend Google-ing that first and reading some of the facts. There is a lot of information available to us now that our mothers and their mothers didn't know about or have access to. Cereal is made to be eaten separately, not added to bottles, so I did a lot of research on the subject. I chose to feed it from a bowl as soon as mine was 6 months old. Make sure you do your own research before you take a random stranger's advice.... even mine :-)
