    Enfalac for newborn

    EnfaMama A+ is for mummy
    Enfapro A+is for after 6 mths baby
    Enfagrow A+ is for 1-3 yrs old toddler
    Enfakid A+ is for 3-6 yrs old kid
    EnfaSchool A+ is for 6 yrs and above.

    How about infant/newborn? can we get this in the mkt? i went to the website it is only for healthcare professional? so i need get them from clinics?

    Any feedback on Enfa series? i heard not bad.
    Is this better or similac better?

    you can get it at any supermarkets. reason why they dont 'advertise' FM for infant below 6mths is becos WHO encourages Bf-ing for the 1st 6mths. Thus, no adv and no offer for stage 1 FM.

    IMO, every FM is the same. all has the standard (minimun) nutrients that a baby needs. Most impt is the FM must suit your baby. the 'best'/ex or most nutrients FM doesnt mean might suit every babies.

    BF if possible. If you intend to fully bf, pls DONT prepare any FM at hm to 'tempt' you.

    Re: Enfalac for newborn

    Actually I prepared formula as back up even though I intended to fully bf. I am glad I did that cos my breast milk took a while to come..then for the first few days my gal cry and cry, suck and suck nothing came out..the formula came in handy, at least my gal was fed and stopped crying else I think I will just cry with her..but eventually my breast milk was enough and I stop feeding her formula.

    I think even when you are supplementing with formula, you shld continue pumping so that your body will register a demand and trigger continuous milk production.

    Brand wise, Think all formulas are about the same..the only diff is the price..btw, the enfa series for below 6mths is enfalec. Occasionally there will be mummies trying to sell their formula due to over stock..can check out the tread

    if i'm not wrong, there is no free samples for infant FM (under 6mth). correct me if i'm wrong =) but during the stay, if you need to give FM to the baby, of cos they will provide. i heard some mummies even bring hm those instant FM from the ward. as for those tins FM, i dont think have. =)

    I'm using Enfalac A+ HA for my girl which is in the range for newborns - pediatrician recommended it when my baby had colic. It's available at major supermarkets - can try Giant or the larger NTUC. It is slightly more expensive than Similac / Nan etc.

    no no you got me wrong ...not sample but to feed the infant with enfa i am choosing this brand for the baby to start with since i doubt i can BF him the 1st few days due to C sect or lack of milk

    Re: Enfalac for newborn

    Actually I believe that as long as you keep stimulating your body by freq latching on there wld b supply. I had a c-section n I latch on my baby almost immediately. Your baby wld not b hungry immediately as what they have in reserves is sufficient for a day or 2. I'm not a soup lover so I have never drank any fish bone soup but am still total bfding till today.. Anyway then again if you r worried about supply not coming in you can always ask them to feed formula first. you can request for a few bottles of ready made bottles upoon discharge

    you can latch almost immediately after C sect? did you opt for Epi ?? i going for GA so i dont think i will be sober enuff to latch that si why i will ask them to feed FM 1st and of course i will also request a few bottle upon discharge as well... the bottle are good for storing breast milk :P

    hmm try to schedule your c-sect in the early morning. mine was 8am so i fast from 12amonwards. i had my 'last' but fulling meal at 11.30pm. but due to pregnancy, i still keep feel hungry and my sickening hub ate chocolate pie in front of me in the morning and told me hw delicious it was!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAA!!!!

    after c-sect usually no fod for that day. but my gynae let me eat as i said earlier, i was pretty alert and no sign of side effects..

    i dont think changing of FM helps. burp him after feeds, apply ruyi oil on his tummy. if his colic is very bad, bring him to a pediatrician =)
