We use Enfamil. It's marketed to be better than the others (don't know if it's true) because it contains LIPIL which is found in breastmilk. They have many options to choose from including the kinda we use which is called Enfamil Gentlease for gassy babies.

Similac Isomil.  My son had a bit of colic until I stopped the milk based formula.  He became a completely different kid when he went on Soy.

I breast fed in the beginnig but around 4 months I started her on formula because it was easier than pumping every day while I was work. The Target brand with iron seems to works well for my daughter who is almost 7 months.

I have been nursing my son for 9 months and just started trying to wean him off of me.  We are trying Enfamil (my friend gave me a can that she got in the mail to try).  I don't know if it's expensive or not but my son seems to like it.  They say you shouldn't switch formula so I will just continue to supplement him with the Enfamil until he starts Homo milk.

My son was breastmilk in the beginning. he was so sensitive to anything and everything i ate. so i tried formula. we ended up on Nutramigen as that was the only think his poor stomach would handle. When he was 3 months old we switched to Similac Soy. He is 7 months now and is still on that.

Quoting Becky:

My son is almost 3 months old and we have been using Kirkland from Costco. He seems to do well with it and it's inexpensive $17.99 for two cans.



That's so nice!!! I tried my son on that because it was sooo much cheaper than Nestle Good Start, but it didn't agree with him.

My 2 year old daughter has been on s26 gold since 6 months old as that is the only one she liked and could keep down, tried everything, now that she is a toddler she has s26 toddler vanilla milk shakes.

I use Nestle Follow-Up Transition for 6-18+. It's fairly inexpensive $19.97/can at Wal-Mart. 1 can usually lasts him about a week.

I use the target brand. My daughter only does well on Soy, so I buy their brand it's only $13.69 for it, and basicaly you can get 2 for the price of one-when it come's to Similic and Isomil(meaning the bigger cans).  It has all of the same things you would find in both of those other formula's it might be just at little off or alittle more that what they each have in them. And actually target only makes the bigger cans thatI'm aware of.



Marsha-My son who now is 5 had GURD really bad as a baby was DX at 5 mons, but had it from birth, and was on Prevacid-only after fighting with the doctor for 3 months to get a upper GI on him to prove he had it, he drank that stuff they gave him only for it to come right back up. Long story short. He had to switch from Similic to Isomil and was on Prevacid until he was 11 1/2 months-I would ask your doctor about the formula, but I know for me I had to keep him on that formula the whole time he was on that med. and yes it is VERY expensive.

My son had to go on Nutramigen because he had such bad colic. It caused painful reflux and he had to go on Prevacid. It's so expensive!!! Does anyone know how long I should keep him on this special formula before going back to normal formual?
