i use Enfamil because that was the brand that the hospital gave my son when he was in nicU. He is 9 mth now and still on it.

MrsRs:  Would you consider breastfeeding? There are lots of benefits for both the mom and the baby. I’m in no way saying this to put down formula, and if you do use formula then that is just fine for your future baby, too.

MrsRs:  Every baby seems to be different. It is really trial and error. I had really great luck with Similac Sensative RS. Good luck TTC!

Start with the cheapest because twelve months of formula is a big expense And chances are the cheaper brands are exactly the same anyway!

I have never used it, but if I were I think I would just start with a cheap brand and see if baby liked it. No need to get anything special if baby doesn’t need it. It’s expensive!!

i got tons of free samples in the mail when I was pregnant so definitely try to get those if you need to try different brands!

Ask your pediatrician what he/she thinks is best. I breast fed my first two, but couldn’t breastfeed my last two due to breast cancer and double mastectomies. I am in America and I used good start for my last two children (my thris child was bron premature and they didn’t have preemie formula bacjk then that you could buy in a store). Both children thrived and all of my kids are very healthy (they’re adults now..lol).

MrsRs:  I am not in the UK, but have read that Hipp is an excellent baby formula available in Europe.

I use Gerber Good Start. Every baby will be different so you may have to try a few.  I tried Enfamil first and my baby threw it all up, then I tried Similac and it made her constipated, so then the Good Start and she’s done great with that one.

My brothers & I were pretty much raised on similac. My godson was on Emphamil & wouldn’t stop throwing it up, but did well on Similac. So you might need to fiddle around for a while to find what’s best for your baby. I agree with someone above — Start with the cheapest stuff and go from there. Pretty much all formula is the same, they just have pretty packaging & different claims.
