What is 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.

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.

Baby Nutrition Guide

1. 0-6 months - Step 1

Newborns should either breast milk or infant formula on demand.

Breast Milk
For new-born babies, WHO advices to solely breastfeed for the first 6 months and then continue with additional nutritious foods up to 2 years old, based on you and your baby's needs. (Source)

Breastfeeding is usually the better option compared to formula milk because it.. 
- Adapts to the baby's changing requirements
- Provides babies with all of the vital nutrition and hydration they need 
- Helps protect against infection and to build a healthy immune system 
- Is a cheap and convenient to feed your babies wherever and whenever they need to.

Infant Formula Milk
In case breastfeeding doesn’t work or you choose not to breastfeed, infant formula is the only suitable alternative. It should be your baby’s only source of nutrition for the first 6 months. A formula-fed infant will drink every 3 - 4 hours and will increase as your baby grows.

According to NHS guidelines, cow’s milk and other substitutes should not be introduced as a main drink until after 1 year. Never start solids before 4 months. Source

Always seek medical advice before buying infant formula. 

Here are some infant milk formulas you can get in Malaysia..
- Enfalac A+ Step 1 (2.4 kg): RM278 > Lazada 
- Similac Step 1 (1.2 kg), RM116 > Lazada
- Nestle NAN Pro Step 1 (600g), RM76.36 > Lazada
- Anmum Infacare Step 1 (650g), RM67 >  Lazada

Water - NOT Recommended

It is recommended that you do not give babies under six months of age water. Until your little one is six months they should receive only breastmilk or formula.

Here are some of the common consequences of introducing water to babies too early..
- Lack of nutrients from milk or formula
- Slower weight gain and decreased development
- Weaker immunity
- Potential of reduced breast milk supply
- Water intoxication

For more information, check out When Can Babies Drink Water

4-6 Months Old
Most babies are ready to start solids around 5 - 6 months old. 
Some signs that show they are ready include..
- Mastering the grabbing skill
- Developing head and neck control
- Losing the tongue-thrust mechanism that automatically pushes food out of their mouth. N

Aim to feed about 1-2 tablespoons of food twice a day to your baby. Solid food shouldn't replace milk as the main source of nutrients. 

2. 6-12 months - Step 2

At 6 months, parents will usually introduce more foods into their baby’s diet, so the amount of milk they will need will gradually decrease. For both formula-fed and breastfed babies, the amount of milk they drink should naturally adjust according to how much food they have eaten.

However, for babies 6 to 9 months old, most of their calories should still come from breast milk or formula. Don’t stress about getting them to eat bite after bite of solid food. Feed up to two meals daily (or once every couple of days for some babies), with each meal 2 to 4 tablespoons. 

Suitable baby foods include iron-fortified single-grain baby cereal along with pureed vegetables, fruits, and meats. You can also try offering finger foods like cut vegetables, fruit, yogurt and cheese. However, try not to introduce more than one food at a time to identify possible allergies or digestive problems. 

Water can be introduced in small amounts with meals. It is generally advised not to give your baby more than 100ml to 150ml a day. As they age, you may start introducing more water with the help of sippy cups and straws. 

For a more detailed guide on introducing water to your baby, do check out When Can Babies Drink Water .

If they seem to have an endless appetite or don’t seem to be eating enough, contact your child specialist.

9-12 Months Old

At this age, about half of your baby’s calories may usually come from food and the other half from breast milk or formula.

Babies these age are usually interested in trying new foods, so you can try to give them small pieces of your own meals. If they want more, give them more, but if they push it away, maybe that item is just not their one of their favourites.

Babies like to play with their food, so you can try using yogurt, cheese or oats as a sauce for vegetables or whole-grain crackers. Just remember to cut the foods properly and to avoid hard pieces to prevent choking.

3. 12 months onwards - Step 3 / Step 4

Summary : Feed breast milk, dairy milk (cow / goat / etc), alternative plant based milk (soy), more soft / semi solid foods. Seek medical advice before feeding non breast milk alternatives.

Children will usually start to eat larger, more regular meals and get most of their nutrition from foods other than milk. WHO recommends that babies continue to be breast fed up to 2 years and beyond, but they may begin to need less breast milk as they eat more food.

After 12 months, your baby may not need formula milk anymore as they can start drinking cow’s milk and other alternatives more regularly.

Below are some of the main types of milk that may be given at this stage.

Cow’s Milk - For children under 2, choose full-fat cow’s milk. Semi-skimmed doesn’t have the same nutrient profile in terms of vitamins and minerals and has less energy. 

Goat’s / Sheep’s Milk - Their nutrient profiles are similar to cow’s milk so as long as they’re pasteurised, they’re alright to offer. 

Soya Drinks & Other Milk Alternatives - As part of a healthy, balanced diet, soya, oat, almond and other vegetable based milks can be offered or used in cooking. However, they are usually not as nutritionally comparable to cow’s milk. Furthermore, not all brands fortify with the same nutrients.

2 years and above
Summary : Feed cow's milk or alternative, and a balanced diet. Formula milk as an addition if the child is not receiving enough nutrients.

Children will start to eat a more varied, balanced diet and may rely less on milk. You may adjust how much milk you give them based on their diet throughout the week. If your child's diet doesn’t include dairy, you should consider how you can replace any nutrients they might be missing out on, such as formula milk or alternative foods.
