Infant formula, ABBOTT NUTRITION, SIMILAC, ISOMIL, ADVANCE with iron, ready-to-feed

Fun Facts

  1. While breast milk is the ideal food for infants, not all moms are able to nurse their babies and must feed their babies infant formula. In many cases, infant formula is a major source of nutrition during the first 12 months of an infant’s life, and it’s therefore required to meet specific standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  2. Similac and Enfamil are two types of infant formula. Knowing the similarities and differences between these two formula brands may help you decide which is a better fit for you and your baby.
  3. When prepared according to instructions, both Similac Advance and Enfamil Infant — the two standard infant formulas made by Similac and Enfamil — contain the same number of calories, which is 20 calories per ounce.
  4. The carbs, protein and fat content of both formulas are very similar, but the Enfamil Infant is slightly lower in fat and higher in carbs than Similac Advance. A 100-calorie portion of Similac Advance contains 10.7 grams of carbs, 2.1 grams of protein and 5.6 grams of fat, while Enfamil Infant contains 11.2 grams of carbs, 2.1 grams of protein and 5.3 grams of fat.
