Has anyone ever used Enfamil Next Step Lipil?

My dd is 10 months old and I thought when she turned 1 than she got off her baby formula and went on regular milk. But, today I got this Next Step example in the mail and it says for ages 9-24 months. What the heck?!?!?! Now I'm so confused. Is that suppose to be used in place of meals or is that just if she's thirsty? Does anyone use it and exactly what do I do with it?

  • I got one of those things in the mail to.. They don't need it. Its just a way for the company to get more money

  • I used the next step Lipil. Its not a way for the company to make more money BUT it is a way for your little one to get morre nutrients. Next step lipil can be used as a supplement. It can be used in place of milk if you chose. It is designed to give babies more of what they need in case they are lacking in other vitamins. If your baby doesn't like it or if your baby is taking food and milk with out any problem then I would say skip the Enfamil next step. Make sense?

  • I used it for awhile after WIC stopped giving us formula (he was over a yr) then used it to help him switch to just milk.

  • My doc said there is no reason to use it but it's not harmful. So if you want to use go ahead, but it's not necessary.

  • Marketing. Pure and simple. If you make it, they will buy it.

    I will say that I kept my sample can and ended up using it. Why? When my daughter had a really bad cold and was refusing all foods, I was able to get her to drink some of this. It's not "food" but it's better than nothing or plain milk for a sick toddler.
