  • Walmart brand. This worked out well because it was half the cost!!! But he started on Enfamil.

  • I breastfed, but used formula to supplement on occasion. We used Enfamil Lipil. I have a serious problem with the way formula smells which is why I never used it with my 1st three kids, but we had to use something to start with because I wasn't producing enough breastmilk and had to have a supplementer until my supply increased. Enfamil Lipil was what the hospital gave us and it didn't smell quite as much as many other brands.

  • I bf, but I read that all formulas have to meet nutritional requirements and that brand names just make minute adjustments to make it a proprietary brand.

  • Enfamil Lipil. We tried the others but our DS liked that one the best and he didn't have as much reflux w/the Enfamil.

  • i started with similac advance with early shield and then i went to good start. she loves it. and she is less gassy with the good start and it smells less. but ofcourse i was breastfeeding when she was on the similac so it might of been me making her gassy. who knows. she is 8months and she loves it just fine. good luck
