I had my daughter 14 weeks early, week 26 of gestation. She wouldn't latch on for breast feeding when we tried, and I was loosing my milk supply after 2 months of pumping constantly. My daughter was put on this product from the time my milk supply at the hospital wasn't enough to now, and since then she has gone from her worse of 1 pound 12 ounces to 5 pounds 10 ounces! This product is wonderful for any preemie and my daughter has no issues with it whatsoever, she will even glug it if I don't stop her sometimes! I'm extremely thankful for this product, especially after seeing her progress since she was on it.

My son was born at 33 weeks gest age. Therefore he was put on Enfare in the NICU. Well at the NICU while he was drinking the already mix formula in the small bottles everything went fine! Well as soon as we got home and had to use the powder cans everything went down hill! He has alot of gas (maybe 40 times a day) you can hear bubbling in his stomach. Only has 1 bowel movement maybe every 3 days. I can went out and brought expensive anti gas bottle, gas drops and everything so we have now narrowed it down to his formula! Yes this formula helps with weight gain but it really upsets the stomach! I have just switched to Enfamil Gentle-Ease. It is a way you can give Preemies regular formula but you have to just ask your Doctor how to mix it to add more calories. You have to increase the amount of formula you mix

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil EnfaCare Powder Infant Formula - 12.8 Ounce Can:

I had my baby boy at 27 weeks weighing 2.6lbs and he was in the NICU for 80 days. He was given Enfacare along with breast milk during those 80 days. He has always gotten one feeding of Enfacare at home per day and more recently he has gotten half Enfacare/half breastmilk. He is 11 months now and 19 lbs! I am DONE exclusive pumping as of next week but I am nervous to finish out his last couple of months with Enfacare exclusively because it does upset his stomach a bit and gives him terrible gas. I'm wondering if there is something he might tolerate better as I do not feel he needs the extra cals any longer. I would recommend this product to anyone with a preemie, just beware of the gas!

Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil EnfaCare Powder Infant Formula - 12.8 Ounce Can:

Our twins were born premature and spent a little under a month in the NICU. They were feed fortified (24kcal) Enfacare formula and had amazing weight growth. We have continued this formula now that they are home but now have experiencing major reflux issues. The boys initially were very gassy which we attributed to the formula since this seems to be a common issues.

Over the course of weeks though they have full blown reflux. Because they have done so well with their growth and weight gain, I have hesitated to change their formula.

My other complaint is the size of the container. 90% of the coupons for Enfamil are for the 20 ounce + containers and as we are all aware theses containers are much much smaller. The formula is expensive and as most parents using it are twin mothers we all require twice the amount. Truly the cheapest way to get the formula is by the case but unfortunately due to military constraints we were not even able to get the twins program from the Enfamil rep. Our pediatrician states that they were not allowed to engage with them for product samples. All this factors truly frustrating. I think at our next pediatrician visit we may address switching formulas just because of the excessive reflux and cost.

As for recommendation- I would have my friends and patients try the product. Not all babies are created equal and some may not experience the issues with reflux. They have had amazing weight gain which is the goal of this formula but my recommendation would be with strong reservations.

Preemie gaining weight, but extreme gas, constipation, etc

    Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil EnfaCare Powder Infant Formula - 12.8 Ounce Can:

    NICU advised we continue to use this product in the 22 cal pre-mixed bottles until our pediatrician recommends otherwise. Our preemie daughter is gaining weight on a trendline that will get her to others that would be her age had she been full-term.

    The problem we are having though is that she is constantly grunting and moaning and bearing down in an attempt to get rid of the gas that builds up in her intestines after her feedings. Not only that, but she is also having constipation issue for almost 2 weeks now where she only passes solids in her diaper at most once per day. And then there is the incredibly potent smell (I am used to bad smells in poultry prep) and the dark green stool color.

      Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil EnfaCare Powder Infant Formula - 12.8 Ounce Can:

      My daughter was born premature. She was NICU for almost 3 weeks, and this was the formula the doctor put her on. Due to her condition and her feeding issue, they don't want to see her loose weight. This formula nicely helped her gain weight. She seems to love this, and most of all, it doesn't give her stomach discomforts, vomits, or spitups. The only bad thing about it is formula is already expensive, and this one is even more expensive. Otherwise, this worked very well for her, and I am very satisfied with the product

      Comments about Mead Johnson Enfamil EnfaCare Powder Infant Formula - 12.8 Ounce Can:

      I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has a preemie. My little one was born one month early, and her weight kept dropping. Once she started on Enfamil Enfacare her weight started picking up gradually. They didn't want to release her from the hospital, but after this product it made it easier to leave. I had a rough delivery, and she lost a lot of oxygen at the time of delivery. After being on this formula it has helped her in so many ways. Her brain functions improved.. Her motor skills improved. I tried other's, but this is the one that she prefers. The others she won't even swallow. The only thing I didn't like was that it caused gas, but what baby doesn't have that..

      Our son was born 33 weeks, and spent a month in and out of the NICU, Intermediate Nursey, and the PICU. I solely breast fed at first (pumping whatever I could and leaving for the nurses and bf while we visited our little guy) but after a month and a half he needed something more filling and to help with his weight gain. My husband and I were excited to see this version of Enfamil on the shelf, we didn't hesitate to buy it and I'm glad we did. Our little guy has Acid Reflux but this formula still works great for him. He's 10 weeks old now and is caught up with the regular milestones!!

      My nephew has this formula. He was a premie and it has helped him gain the weight he needed. The liquid is so convenient. It does have to be ordered and she did have to buy the whole case or the store would not order it. She lives in Kentucky and I live in Michigan. When she was here Meijer had it on their shelf so she was able to buy what was needed. It does cause a lot of gas and the smell is terrible. Overall it was a wonderful product cause it did its job by helping our little premature baby gain and stay healthy.

      He has gained proper weight which is assent but the side effects such as gas, upset stomachs causing more spit up, and constipation really make you think twice. I would recommend only because of the significant weight gain of my son.
