When it comes to choosing formula for babies, there’s nothing like a recommendation from a trusted source. Whether it comes from your doctor, the hospital where your baby was born or another Mom, it gives you confidence you’ve made a good choice for your baby.

Enfamil A+® is the #1 formula brand recommended by pediatricians.

Moms often rely on their doctors to guide them through important choices concerning their baby’s care—especially during the first year when doctor visits happen so regularly. Pediatricians could recommend any formula brand: Nestlé®, Similac® or even another. The fact that Enfamil A+® is recommended more by pediatricians than any other brand means a lot—and certainly helps you feel confident choosing Enfamil A+ brands.

Enfamil A+® is the #1 infant formula chosen by pediatric hospitals

Enfamil A+ formula for babies is the #1 infant formula brand recommended by pediatricians. It’s not surprising that Enfamil A+ is also the #1 infant formula chosen by pediatric hospitals. So there’s a good chance Enfamil A+ was a trusted source of nutrition in the hospital where you gave birth. That means nurses and doctors feel good about giving Enfamil A+ formulas to babies right from the start. We even have specialized formulas for premature or low birth weight babies while they’re in the Neonatal Unit — and once they’re released from the hospital.

Enfamil A+® formulas have DHA for growing brains and Enfamil A+ is our closest formula to breast milk.

Our formula for babies has DHA, an important nutrient for your baby’s growing brain. It’s a great formula to start your baby on and is available in nipple ready Nursette® bottles. We also have tailored formulas for babies at 6 months, babies with feeding issues and nutritional milk drinks for toddlers that also have brain nourishing DHA. Furthermore, Enfamil A+ has a fibre blend that can help promote good bacteria. Good bacteria help support the immune system.

A baby’s brain more than doubles in size in the first year of life. A baby’s brain contains Omega-3 fat and most of that fat is DHA, an important building block of the brain. That’s why DHA is important for your child early in life. In fact, 9 out of 10 doctors agree that DHA-enriched nutrition is a practical way to support normal brain development. Formulas with DHA have been studied for over 20 years. Enfamil A+ formulas have DHA. These formulas are a good way to support normal brain development during the first year of life.


DHA contributes to the visual development of infants up to 12 months of age.

In 2009, Mead Johnson was the first and only company in the industry to receive a scientific endorsement from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) for this infant formula health claim. It went on to be approved by the European Commission and member States for publication. Well over 100 safety-related studies have been conducted on the sources of DHA and ARA used in our formulas, creating a unique and impressive database.

Most important of all, Enfamil A+® is the #1 choice of Moms like you.

While you may come to Enfamil A+ based on professional recommendations, you may also have learned about our products from a family member or a friend. First-time Moms are happy to share their success stories while trying to select formula for babies.
