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 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..

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

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!!

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

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.

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

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.

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

So far my daughter has done well on this formula. Due to her being a preemie and spending a few weeks in the NICU this was her only option and I've been unable to produce enough breast milk. She's gaining weight and looks healthy but the formula chases horrible upset stomach and gas. She is uncomfortable most of the day until I'm able to give her more breast milk than formula. The formula is expensive and hard to find. All in all since this is her best option to grow I can't complain but do hate the price and the way it makes her feel.

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

My son was born four and a half weeks early. Being as though I didn't breastfeed right away they gave him enfacare. His pediatrician has recommended we continue to give our son enfacare for the first year. He seems to enjoy it and he won't consume any other brand we've tried similac and he gets very bad gas. With the enfacare he gets gas but not as bad without the constipation. For a heart baby enfacare helped my baby boy add on those extra pounds quickly. Which was applauded by the medical staff before, during and after his first open heart surgery.

Helps Preemie Weight Gain but causes gas

Pros

  • Doesn't Mix Well

Best Uses

  • Newborn
  • Preemies

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

We were introduced to this formula as a result of my son being born early and having to spend 2 weeks in the NICU. There aren't many options for little ones that need higher calorie formula and even less options for those who have complications from it. This formula causes gas, stomach pain, and issues with constipation but we have no choice but to continue using it based on his caloric needs. I have noticed that the ready to use bottles aren't as he's on his system as the powered but they are so expensive and hard to find that we only use them when we absolutely have to. The powder is also expensive since there is only one size canister. Very frustrating.

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

No one shops for formula and chooses to use this product, circumstances demand it with no real alternative. So if you need to use it, use it, it is a great product that has helped my boys tremendously.

My problem comes from the fact that those who use it have to use it, and in addition almost every set of multiples will be on it as well. But it is only packaged in the small can, as a parent of twins I not only have to use it, but I have to use twice as much. A larger can or tub, which you produce is cheaper to make than two or more of the 12.8 oz cans, and as the consumer I would get a break in price. It is already a more expensive formula, I get that, it has way more of the good stuff in it for those of us that need it, but why can't some form of bulk buying help with the cost? It might help with the theft as well, bigger containers are harder to steal and as a result maybe I wouldn't have to ask for someone to get these from behind a counter at the store.

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

The doctor recommended this formula for my preemie twins. They are 2 months old & have doubled their birth weight which is GREAT but unfortunately this formula seems really hard on their stomachs. They are constantly struggling with gas, discomfort & diaherra. I agree that the ready feed is a lot different than powder. Even the color is different. NO BUBBLES. I always stir the powder to keep from being so bubbly but it doesnt help much. They do a lot better on the ready feed but it's just so expensive and super hard to find. I was told they should stay on this formula until atleast 6 months so gas drops are currently my best friend..
