There are many formula options for moms who are unable or uninterested in breastfeeding. Most newborns will tolerate a basic 20 kcal/ounce formula with iron. We often first recommend trying Enfamil with Iron or Similac Advance. There are some babies who will not tolerate these formulas for different reasons, and we would be glad to discuss other options with you at your appointment. If you are interested in changing your baby’s formula, please let us know so we can help you find the one best for your baby.
