Great product. I'm supplementing this along with breast milk as I continue to nurse and it is the only formula that doesn't cause my baby to get constipated. He used to scream when he pooped and now I have a much happier baby, so we are all happier. I can't find this in any store so I'm so glad that Amazon carries this product.
When switching from breast milk to formula, my baby suddenly went from a happy easy going baby to a fussy constipated baby. I tried almost every milk-based formula available at the grocery stores (with no success) before trying this one. This one gave me my happy baby back, no more constipation. It is labeled "low" iron, which means that it is fortified with about half as much iron as the excessive amount found in other formulas. I found that I could mix this up to about half-and-half with other formulas before the constipation set in again. I don't understand why this formula is not available through the stores; however, I found ordering it by the case through Amazon to be really convenient, with free fast delivery, and price slightly less per ounce than most of the formulas at the grocery store.
I wish I could give this 10 stars! After I stopped breastfeeding my sweet happy baby became a screaming unhappy baby. His poo became so pasty that he would scream and turn blood red in the face from trying to poop. The doctor told me to try prune, apple, or pear juice to "help it along". After a few days of giving him that every day he went back to screaming baby again. Things were so bad that he gave himself a hemorrhoid before he was even 5 months old! I tried EVERY formula that the stores sold and there was never any change. A friend of mine told me about high iron concentrations causing constipation in one of her friends babies and maybe I might look into that. After looking through every store in the towns around me I started searching online to see if this even existed. Luckily I found this on Amazon!! I started giving this to my baby a few weeks ago and the change is AMAZING! I have my sweet baby back!! The poo has gotten back to normal and this formula has made a WORLD of difference!!! If your baby is constipated or having issues having a bowel movement you should really try this!!! Really wish the typical stores carried this but Amazon is easy to order through and I have not had any issues and I have now ordered my 3rd case!
Shortly after we started supplementing my breast milk with formula one of my twins developed terrible constipation. Finally our doctor suggested switching to a low iron formula for him. We went to every grocery store, drug store, warehouse store and found none. I was excited to find it on Amazon but hesitant to purchase a whole case, thank God I did! My baby is happy as can be with normal bowel movements. No more constipation!! The formula is actually cheaper per ounce than what you would pay in the store. Thank you Amazon for carrying such a great product!
A couple of weeks ago I had to bring my then seven month old to the dentist because his only two teeth were turning black on the underside. Turns out it was iron build up. I have high iron and so apparently does my son. I immediately logged online to find a low iron formula and much to my chagrin almost all baby foods and formulas are fortified with extra iron. This was one of my very few options but luckily it turns out my son loves it! We've had no problems since switching to this formula.
In a world where doctors freak you out and tell you to give your baby lots of iron, it is also constipating and gas causing! I found this formula and mix it equally with Enfamil AR so it's not super thick and so my baby doesn't get an overdose and constipation from too much rice starch and iron. So far so good, and she doesn't spit it up.
My little girl was having a tough time with constipation and she would goes once every 4-5 days. I heard that it could be the high iron content in the milk formula that causes the constipation. This is the only formula that I can find that is low in iron. I did a mixture of regular similac with this so that the iron content come out to be about 1.3mg-1.4mg per 100Cal(regular similac is 1.8 per 100Cal) Now my daughter goes once a day with out any pain. Thank you Abbott for carrying this!
I didn't breast feed my daughter and went through 8 different formulas due to her screaming through EVERY bottle, constipation, acid reflux and colic. The culprit -- iron! I changed to this formula and we got our baby back. There is no lingering effects of the iron intolerance with this formula.
