  • My son started on Enfamil and then after 6 months WIC (in TX) switched their contract and we had to switch to Similac. Honestly I liked the Similac better. He seemed like he was constipated more with the Enfamil. After we switched to the Similac though he was a regular little machine though!! :) However, each baby is different!! Don't get down about not being able to BF...I wasn't able to because of a health problem and I was very very upset for months, I felt worthless (and my MIL wasn't much help) but chin up and just know that at least you are doing your best!!

  • Enfamil definintly. But how do you know you can't BF if you haven't had your baby yet?

  • We use Parent's Choice that is just like Enfamil.

  • i liked similac but i have bought both and are both fine. However now that my son is over his sensitivitys.. i buy parents choice or the meijer brand where i am at the time.. but he does fine on it. My son had real sensitivity when he was a baby... but he's still on gentle formula where the whey protein is already partially broken down. But whatever you choose will be just fine.. =) there really isn't a difference in my opinion between the name brand formulas =)
