What is Enfamil / Enfalac ?

Enfalac is one of the most popular milk formula brands in Malaysia. If you look it up on Google, you may come across the term 'Mead Johnson's Enfamil' in other countries. This is because Enfalac, Enfagrow, Enfamil and Sustagen are all milk formula brands owned by the same company : Mead Johnson. In Malaysia, Enfalac is distributed by Enfagrow.

Enfalac / Enfamil have over 2000 reviews and is one of the most popular milk formula brands in Amazon. 


Enfamil vs Enfalac

Enfamil and Enfalac are the same. Enfamil is the new name for Enfalac after rebranding. However, some vendors still use the name Enfalac in Malaysia. 

If you see any Enfamil products in local markets, chances are they are manufactured overseas. Enfalac from Malaysia has a straightforward product line, consisting of the usual formula line, and the gentlease formulas. Meanwhile, Enfamil has a wide range of products for a wide variety of needs, like Lactofree formulas, Hypoallergenic formulas, formulas for premature babies and so on.

Enfamil is usually more expensive compared to Enfalac in Malaysian markets. Enfamil is usually not available in Lazada, but can be found in Shopee.

Difference Between Enfalac and Enfalac A+

You may see some products on Lazada or Shopee called Enfalac, without the A+. It may be because they simply chose not to put the word A+ in the product's name. However, this is not always the case as Enfalac is an older version of Enfalac A+ with a slightly different formula.

I used the original Gentlease formula to supplement my son when he wasn’t gaining weight after the first two weeks. It worked well - he likes it, smelled much less terrible than the other formulas we tried. When they switched over to this new neuropro formula I was a little nervous, but no need to be - he switched over seamlessly and now at 5 months he is eating is exclusively. It’s a little pricey - but I think it’s worth the money. If I’m
not giving him breast milk then I want to give him the best formula money can buy, even if it costs a little extra - works well for mama and baby. :)

C. Enfamil Enspire Product Line


6. Enfamil Enspire - Enfamil's Closest Formula to Breast Milk


Enfamil Enspire is similar to Enfamil Neuro Pro. However, Enfamil Enspire is touted as the most similar milk formula to breast milk because it has Lactoferrin, unlike Neuro Pro. 

Lactoferrin helps support the microbiome and prevents gastrointestinal infections.

Main ingredients : nonfat milk, whey protein-lipid concentrate, whey protein concentrate, lactose, and vegetable oil (which consists of coconut oil, soy oil, high oleic sunflower oil, and palm oil). 

Sub ingredients : added vitamins and minerals, lactoferrin, polydextrose, galactooligosaccharides, crypthecodiniumcohnii oil, and mortierellaalpina oil.

Polydextrose is a soluble fiber that usually acts as a sweetener for sugar-free and diabetic recipes. Unlike sugar, polydextrose doesn’t significantly increase the caloric count of the infant formula.

It is certified to be non-GMO. It uses cow’s milk. It is also enriched with various plant-based ingredients to provide complete nutrition for your baby. However, since it contains cow’s milk and soy, it is not suitable for babies who are allergic to such ingredients.


Got this after switching from neuro pro, I immediately noticed the cognitive and developmental benefits as my 3 month old started communicating with us using body language and a plethora of grunts, shrugs, and other lovable sounds. She’s happy now that she can communicate with us and we don’t have to guess what’s wrong.

7. Enfamil Enspire Gentlease



Similar to Neuro Pro Gentlease, but has Lactoferrin which helps support the microbiome and prevents gastrointestinal infections.


Adopted a newborn baby boy and this is the formula I decided to use because of the added "colostrum" type properties! As a farmer, we always use a colostrum type of formula at first for baby animals that don't get to nurse from mom. Didn't try this for our newborn until he was brought home at 4 days old, but he did excellent on it! He was Jaundice and I felt he still could benefit from a formula with the colostrum type properties. No spitting up at all! And the gas he had from the hospital's Similac formula, totally stopped after a full day on the Enspire! He used up the entire container after 10 days... (big baby, big eater). He was also cleared of his Jaundice at his 1st checkup! I switched him to the Enfamil Neuro-Pro Gentlease now that I don't feel the need for the extra "colostrum" benefit. He made the switch with ease and is now doing great on that too! But definitely a great 1st formula! I'm a foster mom and will definitely keep this on hand and use this with any newborn placements I get... as long as they don't have any specific dietary needs!!

e. Both provide 100 calories per serving

f. Both have similar amounts of vitamins and minerals, except inositol. 
This nutrient is important for brain development because it is essential for making neurotransmitters bind to their receptors. 
- Enfamil Enspire has 6 mg of inositol
- Enfamil NeuroPro has 24 mg of inositol

- Enfamil Nutramigen has been clinically proven to reduce colic caused by an allergy to cow’s milk in about two days.
- Enfamil Nuramigen claims to reduce future incidences of cow’s milk allergies.

- For babies who are allergic or show colicky symptoms to cow's milk, which have proteins that are more difficult to digest than human breastmilk.

- Uses sugars to aid in digestion, mainly corn syrup
- Lactose Free


Excellent for babies with milk allergy. Cleared up my daughter's eczema and rashes within weeks! Very pleased! Makes poo smell awful too so that's cool, I guess if you're looking to use your baby's feces as a weapon or social deterrent.

10. Enfamil Reguline Infant Formula - Milk Formula to Reduce Constipation

 
- For infants up to 12 months
- Designed with the Natural Defense Dual Prebiotic blend to promote soft, comfortable stools within the first week of use.
- Designed to be fed to babies with stooling issues, such as constipation. 
- Has easy-to-digest proteins that are partially hydrolyzed.


I read reviews and decided to try this product. Our newborn was constipated and fussy after only a week on powdered formula, she was on gentlease which did help with gas, but then we ran into a constipation issue. I saw some moms recommend not putting their babies on this exclusively, so I followed the advice. Our daughter was only pooping once every other day the first few weeks of life, we decided to give her one 2 oz bottle every morning of reguline and it worked immediately that day. She has several soft poops a day. I took a star off because I can't imagine having her on this exclusively, the one day i made 2 bottles, she had diarrhea. It was too much for her tummy and she was extra gassy. I would recommend starting your baby off on small amounts of this to start. One bottle a day is enough for our baby.

11. Enfamil A2



What is A2 milk?
A2 milk is an alternative to regular cow’s milk that may be less likely to be associated with digestive discomfort. Regular cow’s milk contains both the A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins. However, the A1 protein may be hard for some people to digest, causing digestive discomfort and an unpleasant experience, similar to lactose intolerance. A2 milk comes from hand-picked, DNA-tested cows that only produce the A2 beta-casein protein.

What Are the Benefits of A2 Milk Formula?
Formula with A2 milk may be naturally easy to digest for your little one’s tummy, as the A2 protein is similar to that found in breast milk. A2 milk is selectively sourced from cows who are fed a plant-based diet and are never treated with antibiotics or artificial growth hormones.

Does NOT have all of these: NO added sucrose, artificial growth hormones, antibiotics or GMOs
