Bringing your baby home. Nothing in life compares to this special day and the days that follow. Holding him close as you get to know one another. Gazing into each other’s eyes. It’s what you’ve dreamed about for nine months. And you may be thinking about breastfeeding because few things compare to the intimacy of these nourishing moments.
The makers of Enfamil® and Enspire understand just how important and fulfilling these moments are. And while we recognize that breast milk is an integral part of infant nutrition, we know that sometimes a mother needs other ways to nourish her child. So since the earliest days of our brand, we’ve dedicated our efforts to pediatric nutrition by developing safe, high-quality, innovative products that help nourish children, prenatally through toddlerhood.
Nourishing your baby means the world to you.
Now that you’re home together, the desire to nourish your newborn is pure maternal instinct. You may be intent on breastfeeding, since breast milk is commonly agreed to be the optimal source of nutrition and in fact recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics for the first twelve months of life. That’s why we’ve studied breast milk extensively — to provide breast milk inspired products for your newborn as well as several supplements recommended by experts. After all, if you can enjoy the homecoming you’ve dreamed of, that’s a great start.
Feeding options for every need, starting with your own breast milk.
You should feed your baby in the way that’s best for both of you. That’s why Enfamil also makes prenatal and breastfeeding supplements, like DHA in Enfamil® Expecta® Prenatal Supplement and Enfamil® D-Vi-Sol™ Infant Vitamin Drops to support your breastfeeding. If you choose to formula feed, you may choose a gentle formula for newborns, or one designed to complement breastfeeding. If you choose to formula feed exclusively, know that our Enfamil Staged Nutrition formulas are inspired by the changing nutrition in breast milk, tailored to your baby’s age and all have brain-nourishing DHA. Our newest formula Enspire has MFGM and Lactoferrin, two components found in breast milk, making it closer to breast milk than ever. As a modern mom, you have more ways to confidently feed your child than ever before.
The challenge no mother dreams about — a feeding issue.
As much as you want to begin motherhood without any bumps in the road, there can be times when feeding doesn’t go as planned. Your baby’s digestive system is still developing. In fact, over 70% of moms report their babies experience a feeding challenge in the first year, so you’re not alone. And while Enspire is an excellent formula choice for routine feeding needs, Enfamil has a portfolio of special formulas to help ease feeding issues like fussiness, spit up, cow's milk allergy and more. And each of these formulas has complete nutrition, so you can breathe a sigh of relief when your baby settles down with their help.
The story of devotion that started it all.
So how did we become so passionate about childhood nutrition? It began with the experience of a father who went on to start Mead Johnson Nutrition, the maker of Enfamil and Enspire. In 1905, Edward Mead Johnson was desperate to save his ailing infant son, Ted. The family consulted a leading pediatrician, who prescribed a feeding mixture that helped save Ted’s life. And from that urgent need, E. Mead Johnson went on to create the first clinically-supported, physician-recommended infant formula in the United States, laying the foundation for a company dedicated to pediatric nutrition and homecomings full of joy.
Helping parents nourish their children, it’s what we do.
Better homecomings by way of scientifically sound nutrition have been our sole focus for over 100 years. We’re devoted to clinical innovation and dedicated to educating doctors so they understand the benefits that our products can make. As a result, Enfamil is the #1 brand recommended by pediatricians. But the best reasons are the parents everywhere who bring their babies home and watch their newest family members grow and thrive.
