My son is 10 months and absolutely cannot have cow's milk yet. The site is down, and 800-no is no use either, Appreciate any input :)

all formula is nutritionally the same-even store brands. it's regulated and mandated by the usda. however there are some that each child reacts differently too. my children did well with good start or enfamil.

My daughters responded best to the Wal-Mart brand, Parent's Choice. ALL the other brands would make them spit up all the time, but Parent's Choice stayed down... plus it's WAY cheaper! :D

Good Start was actually found to be the closest to breast milk in a study done by Emery.

My sister & I both used the Enfamil Prosobee with our kids. A good friend of mine finds the generic Toys R Us/Babies R Us brand best for her daughter. Ask your pediatrician for a few samples to see what your child can tolerate. Good luck!

Enfamil or Nestle Good Start. I was told by my doctor that those are the two best choices and they're pretty comparable. Once I was done breastfeeding we used Enfamil A+ (with Omega's in it)....very important in my opinion, especially if they're not eating a lot of food yet.

Good luck!

I used Enfamil with my little guy, to good result.They have a good variety of choices. He was bad for spitting up, so I used the Enfamil AR. But they also make a lactose-free version, if you have had issues with gas, bloating and diarrhea in your baby.
