DHA baby formula

If you’re using formula, consider DHA-enriched nutrition.
DHA is a key building block of your baby’s rapidly developing brain—and DHA-enriched infant formulas are an easy way to give your baby DHA. In fact, 9 out of 10 doctors who would feed infant formula to their own children would use a DHA-enriched formula.

Enfamil A+®

Enfamil A+ is the #1 pediatrician recommended formula brand, with clinically proven level of brain nourishing DHA.
DHA is a type of Omega-3 fat that helps nourish your baby's brain.

What is DHA?

Why is it important right now?
By age three, your baby’s brain growth will be 85% complete. A baby’s brain contains Omega-3 fat and most of that fat is DHA, a brain-nourishing nutrient. His brain will never grow this fast again—that’s why DHA is important for your child early in life.

DHA in baby food

If your baby is starting solid foods, he can get DHA by eating DHA-rich foods such as fatty fish like salmon and Altantic mackerel. Babies do not typically eat these foods, especially when they first start eating solids, so it’s not always easy for your baby to get the DHA that helps nourish his brain. You still need to ensure he is getting DHA through your breast milk or DHA-enriched infant formula.
If a woman is not breastfeeding her baby exclusively, she should choose an infant formula that contains DHA.
