My daughter was born at 34 weeks and was given this to supplement her breastmilk bottles while in the NICU, and it has done wonders for us. This helped her gain weight and we couldn't be happier.
My 23 weeker was put on this in the NICU. At first we used to fortify breast milk combined with beneprotein. He showed regular weight gain and growth so we were able to eliminate beneprotein (at 8 weeks adjusted) but kept him on breast milk and enfacare. He doesn't like the two combined so we put the effort in to feed him equal parts of both. He seems to constantly be battling gas and irregular bowel movements on Enfacare - side effects that are apparently common from what I've seen on other reviews. I'm looking forward to being able to put him on regular calorie formula sooner rather than later to hopefully address this discomfort. He's progressed from 1 lb. 8 oz. to 13 lb. 7 oz. over his 5.5 months of life.
Nutritionally I would give this 5 stars but the powder version of this made my son miserably gassy so his dr. Okayed switching to a regular formula. The premade like he was given in the special care nursery was so much better on his belly, not sure how they can be so different but I'm glad I switched.
I'd give this product five stars if it wasn't so expensive, but that's just the nature of formula. Enfamil is great with sending out a lot of coupons though! We used this formula after my son was born six weeks early and I had to supplement my breast milk with this. He stayed on it for almost six months and never had any issues with it. Powder mixed well. He began growing fine thanks to the extra calories from the formula!
Since my babies were born 6 weeks early, the doctors had us fortify my breast milk with this formula. So far, the babies have taken it very well. It is kind of pricey, but it is great for premature babies. I'm definitely going to stick to this formula until our doctor thinks we can change it up, but our babies have taken to it and it doesn't seem to bother them.
This formula worked great for my son who was a preemie born three months early. It helped him gain weight quickly. I would definitely recommend this product to parent's that have a premature baby.
My sister uses Enfamil formula for my nephew. It definitely meets our expectations. We buy this at King Soopers usually and I don't think there is room for improvement. We would definitely buy it again.
I have twin premature girls and this is the formula they were given in order for them to gain weight faster since its a high calorie formula, i have nothing but good things to say about this now my daughters are 11 months and are the height and weight of other 11months old not premature babies.
I had teeny tiny baby girls in the NICU for months. Breast milk did not have enough calories so we had to supplement with this formula. Once you get over feeling guilty - it is a lifesaver, literally. Every calorie counts when your baby is born at 2 pounds!
My daughter was born a preemie, the formula is great and helped her gain weight pretty quick as well, she eventually caught up where she was supposed to be and they took her off of it.
