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-nourishing 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 don’t have to introduce Enfamil A+ 2 gradually by either alternating or combining it with Enfamil A+ —you can switch over to Enfamil A+ 2 right away. Make sure you give your baby enough time to try 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.
