What about their formula?
For a variety of reasons, many moms feed their growing babies formula. If you’re one of those moms, here’s why you may consider switching to a next stage formula like Enfamil A+® 2.
My baby is 6 months old. What are the benefits of Enfamil A+ 2?
Enfamil A+ 2 has more calcium and protein than Enfamil A+®, and age-appropriate levels of iron to support your growing baby. And, like Enfamil A+, it contains DHA; a type of Omega-3 fat and a brain-building nutrient.
It also contains galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and polydextrose, two dietary fibres.
How do I switch from Enfamil A+ to Enfamil A+ 2?
Switching your baby to Enfamil A+ 2 is easier than you might think. You can switch over to Enfamil A+ 2 right away. Make sure you give your baby enough time to adjust to Enfamil A+ 2, usually 3 to 5 days. Some babies will adjust right away. Others may have slight changes in stool pattern, gas, and/or spitting up until they become accustomed to the new formula. If you have questions or concerns, check with your baby’s doctor.
How much formula does a baby need?
Your baby’s appetite is always the best guide, but here are some averages for feeding your baby formula.

*The amount of formula your baby needs, and how often they need to eat it, really depends on the stage of development. These are some general guidelines.
Which Enfamil baby formula at which age?
Nourish your baby’s development at every stage. You can trust Enfamil® staged nutrition with DHA and other nutrients to help. DHA (a type of Omega-3 fat) is a key building block of your growing baby's brain.
