  • The one your baby will take. Honestly, there are SO MANY out there and for the most part they're much of a muchness. The ones with DHA additivies have their adherents, but there are also warnings that these additives are not as healthy as you think. If there's a history of dairy issues in your family a soy formula might be better..but there are concerns about soy as well.

    Talk with your doctor and read up. Read the ingredients in the various types of formulas. Some have corn syrup as a major ingredient and there are questions about that too.

    Spend three times as much time learning about feeding your baby as you do on just about any other preparation...because feeding is going to be your major job when baby arrives.

    Good luck.

  • Donated breast milk would be best! And I mean donated HUMAN breast milk not COW breast milk.

  • Enfamil is the highest in all of the nutrients needed, but is very expensive, Similac with early shied is a close second and much better price.
