  • I use Enfamil, but I've always heard good things about Simlac.

    Anon: She didn't ask about breast milk, so hush.

  • My boys used similac. I tried enfamil with my second and he threw it up. It is all what works with your baby. The hospital that I go to uses similac. Maybe ask your hospital what they are going to start her on and keep her on that unless there is a problem?

  • The baby's doctor should tell you what formula to use and how much. They are somewhat different.

    I agree breastmilk is best. And free. Even if you aren't planning to breastfeed you could at least try and give your baby a few weeks, it makes a difference. Who knows, you might be great at it and love it.

  • I daughter didn't do well on Enfamil either, lots of tummy aches.....She started on Similac the advanced one and now she's on the "Go & Grow" for 9+ months. She has done and is doing awesome on both those..

  • Similac makes my little guy gassy. We use the krikland from Costco. It's almost exactly the same as enfamil but lots cheaper.
