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 Lipil Powder Formula - 12.8 Ounce:

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.

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

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 Lipil Powder Formula - 12.8 Ounce:

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 Lipil Powder Formula - 12.8 Ounce:

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..

    Making my baby grow healthy

    By Lisa

    from Orange Park, FL

    Verified Buyer

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

    I began using Enfamil Enfacare when my son was in the NICU. He was born 6 weeks early at 4 lbs 15 oz. He went for his 8 week appointment and weighed 9 lbs. His pediatrician says he's really happy with his growth, especially being that he was a preemie. I use this product with breast milk and absolutely love it. My son is gaining weight and thriving because of it. I would definitely reccommend Enfamil Enfacare if you have a baby who was born prematurely. You can also receive $5 coupons in the mail by contacting the Enfamil company.

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

      My baby was born 2 months early & the Enfacare was amazing in helping my little guy gain weight. Having said that, there is a huge difference between the powder & ready to use formula! Initially, we were fortifying his formula to a 24 calorie mix, using the ready to use & adding a small amount of powdered formula. He tolerated this fairly well & was just gassy occasionally (although when he was, it was terrible). When he started eating more, we tried switching entirely to the powder formula, still fortifying per our doctor's instructions, and it was disastrous! The powdered formula caused terrible stomach pains & increased gas, as well as issues with the frequency of his bowel movements. We stopped fortifying, in hopes that it would help, but it wasn't until we switched back to the ready to use & stopped fortifying with the powder, that our baby stopped having terrible stomach issues. He is a much happier baby & now the only issue is that the ready to use is hard to find in stores & is terribly expensive.

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

        We are using the product to add to breast milk to increase calories for my preemie/special needs child (she has severe intestinal problems) and has just come home from the hospital after 4 months.
        For those using a g tube (feeding tube) it doesn't clog the g tube but the fats seem to cause build up over time requiring it to be replaced more frequently.
        So while the high calorie is helping growth it is causing more wear on her medical equipment.
