If you don't currently have a baby or one on the way, you may not find this very interesting but I wanted to share this interesting finding-at least I find it interesting.
Ever since I stopped nursing Bennett he's been on Enfamil Gentlease formula. We had Harper on this and she did fine plus anything to prevent gas or fussiness or whatever sounds good to me so we stuck with it for Bennett. Since his heart surgery he has become quite the good eater until recently, within the last few weeks, he hasn't finished all of his bottles and had a lot of spillage out of his mouth and he was getting better with that.
So I ran out of the Enfamil one day and remembered I had a unopened Similac Advanced can from when he was the born (the hospital gave us some). As I was mixing it I noticed how easily it mixed-no clumps-the Gentlease always had clumps! Anyways, he chugged that bottle down within 5 minutes without stopping- all 8 ounces! He continued to do that for all of his bottles that day!
Well I finally got around to buying more formula and instead of purchasing the Similac, I just couldn't let go of the Gentlease so I purchased it once again. Wouldn't you know, he started spilling and not finishing his bottles. So during a feed I decided just to try the Similac once more and quickly made him a bottle (he had 2 ounces of the Gentlease and acted like he didn't want any more) and again, he chugged it-6 ounces under 5 minutes! I don't know what it is about this formula but he loves it and I think I'm going to have to switch brands! Even Ainsley was on Enfamil, I've just always been an Enfamil mom but it doesn't make sense to stick with something if the baby's not going to drink it. It is strange though that he is just now not liking it, whatever.
Any other Similac lovers out there? If feels strange to switch after all this time but to have 5 minute feeds- you can't beat that, plus no clumps- I'm loving it!!
