Tips for introducing Enfamil A.R. to your baby's diet

Before switching formulas, develop a game plan with your pediatrician. In the case of Enfamil A.R. they might recommend a gradual introduction.

It's also important to pay attention to your baby's cues and any feeding issues with the new formula. If your baby seems to be having trouble with the Enfamil A.R., or if they experience excessive spit-up or discomfort, it's best to talk to your pediatrician. Your doctor can help you determine if Enfamil A.R. is the right formula for your baby and can provide guidance on how to make the transition smoothly.
