Whatever, they start him with in the hospital. Honestly all brands have to follow the same standards so there is not one that is better than another.
Been a long time since mine were little but the hospital gave me formula for the babies to take home. I always just stuck with what they started them on. I used Similac with the first two and Enfamil with the youngest.
Quoting Anonymous: I used Similac Advance with my daughter and Similac Sensitive with my son.
No issues with either one.
Be prepared for the BFers to bombard.
I hope your baby does not have colic!! My friend had to supplement bf'ing with formula. Her baby had a very sensitive stomach. Even on the SUPER, SUPER 'gentle' formula, her baby was crying in pain within 10 minutes of finishing her bottle of formula!! She pulled her legs up toward her tummy. It was heartbreaking to see and hear her poor sobbing! :( Before my friend had to start supplementing, and was giving her baby only breastmilk, her baby had no tummy issues.
I have bf'd all 5 of my babies. They never had any tummy issues. Good luck!
I used enfamil and never had an issue. I signed up on their website too and they mailed me coupons every month or every other month. It has been a while.
