When choosing an infant formula, do the words whole proteins come to mind? They should, and here's why.
Breast milk contains whole proteins.
These are easy-to-digest whey and casein proteins that are not broken down before the baby gets them.
Experts agree on the nutritional merits of breast milk. So patterning an infant formula after it seems like a good idea.
Most babies benefit from a formula with whole proteins.
Enfamil® Infant with Triple Health Guard™ contains a blend of easy-to-digest whole whey and casein proteins like the kind found in breast milk. The kind that gives your baby the nutrition he needs for healthy growth and development.
The closer to breast milk, the better.
With Enfamil Infant, the similarities don't stop with whole proteins. It has DHA and ARA, two fatty acids found naturally in breast milk that help improve infant eye and brain development. Plus, lactose is the primary carbohydrate in both breast milk and most milk-based formulas.
If your baby is fussy or gassy, he may have a digestive sensitivity.
And you may want to ask your baby's doctor about Enfamil® Gentlease®, which was designed to help.
Enfamil Gentlease begins with a blend of whey and casein proteins, comparable to breast milk, plus DHA and ARA. But the easy-to-digest proteins have been partially broken down. Also, the lactose level has been reduced*, for babies who might have trouble digesting lactose.
