  • I breastfed as long as I could and then switched to Enfamil Lipil. We never used another brand. GL!

  • I breastfed only until about 8 months. Then I started using a bit of formula here and there. I used Nestles Good Start with DHA. My Dr said it was a good choice :)

  • I BF exclusively when I was home. Went back to work at 10 week PP and after 6 months, I couldn't pump enough to keep up with feeding her at daycare so I supplemented with Enfamil AR.

  • Formula Fed, Similac Advance Liquid pre mixed only.

  • I EBF until my DD was about 4 months old, then I stopped making enough milk. Was put on two medications, neither helped, so I started supplementing with Similac Advanced (blue lid. LOL), and did that until she was a year old.

  • Formula fed first with enfamil lipil, had to switch to Similac Advanced because of WIC and that upset her tummy so we went to Similac Sensitive and she was on that from 2 mos til 11 mos when she would no longer take the bottle and just wanted food.

  • Oh ya, we never used powder... Started with premixed then moved to concentrate.

  • I bf the first for 2.5 years and am currently bfing dd2 at 20.5 months with no end in sight. :) Neither one has ever been given formula and I know nothing about it either.

  • Breastfed for a month, then, ProSobee. Now, I would BF until the kids quit and wouldn't use a Soy formula even if you paid me.
