  • my twins had simliac since they were in the NICU. the nurses at the NICU used it so I assume they feel its healthy. They were on simliac sensitive and grew normally and were healthy. I would use simliac again if I had to make the choice

  • I used similac with my son. I tried to switch to a different brand and he wanted nothing to do with it. I say go with similiac!

  • We ended up having a milk allergy and had to go soy, but I've heard many positives about similac aside from just here, so I would say your safe to give it a go and see how LO does.

  • Similac. But 24 years ago when my DD was born Enfimil was a sub par product. If a hospital trusts one formula over another thats a good endorsement.

  • I started off with enfamil, but soon realized that as much as my baby ate I couldn't afford it. When I went to WIC they said I had to use goodstart, which is ok but it causes the nastiest smelling Be careful with Similac. they had a massive recall not to long ago.

  • There both good but breastmilk is best for babys.

  • I use Enfamil Gentlease for Fuzziness and Gas. Used Similac for my first two babies but Enfamil has been fine for this one
