The Best Formulas for Your Baby's Needs

Your baby is the most important person in the world. You want to make sure they get the nutrition needed for healthy development but choosing the right formula can be overwhelming. To make an informed decision, it’s important to learn about the different types of formula and what they offer.

Enfamil is here for you and your little one from infancy to toddlerhood. We have a wide range of formulas to ensure your baby gets the complete nutrition they deserve. Here are the best baby formulas for a variety of specific needs.

Our Best Formula for Getting Closest to Breast Milk


Breast milk is packed with essential nutrients that play a key role in your little one’s development. Luckily, non-breastfed babies and those who need supplementation can get many of the same nutrients with the right formula. Enspire is our closest formula to breast milk and is designed to provide complete nutrition from birth through 12 months. It contains ingredients found in breast milk, such as immune-supporting lactoferrin, vitamins D,C, and E, and brain-nourishing DHA. BestReviews recently rated Enspire as "best of the best" infant formulas because it contains prebiotics for digestive health and DHA for brain development.
