    Hi
    I'm just wondering Enfalac stated it's for NB-12mths and Enfapro stated it's for 6mths-12mths.When can we change to Enfapro?At 6mths or can continue with Enfalac til 12mths?Many thanks in advance.

    Hi beezewax
    I have the same question as you earlier [​IMG]
    Different stages of formula milk like enfalac & enfapro contains some different kind of nutrients that cater to different needs at different stages. According to my PD, its better to change to enfapro after 6 mths, tho it is still ok to carry on using enfalac.

    I did asked my PD as well if gradual switching of milk powder is neccessary since they are of the same brand but different stages.. she says its alright to switch directly. However, a fren told mi gradual switching is still necessary to avoid diarrhae in case the bb cannot take it..... well........

    Hi soudez
    Many thanks! Anyway, the Mead Johnson staff called me up today.Hmm..Wondering if they can listen to me.hehe.Took the chance to ask them dis query.

    She said that Enfapro is higher in protein & carbohydrates.If bb is fussy bout food during weaning,bb shld take Enfapro due to the nutrients.But if bb is fine with the food and not fussy, can continue with Enfalac.. Hmmm.. I'm thinking of changing to Enfapro when my bb is 7 or 8mths.. [​IMG]

    Hi beezewax

    My intention was oso to change to enfapro ard 7 to 8mths too.. haha... but my initial thots was because Enfalac has higher DHA/AHA then enfapro, and since Enfalac can drink till 12mths, so i'll change in between the 6-12mths period :p... din know abt the weaning facts that Mead Johnson staff mention tho... hehe

    btw, juz wondering.. how come Mead Johnson staff will contact you leh?

    Hi [​IMG]
    No idea why they contact me.I think it's because I join their membership.Was given this leaflet by my gynae & sign up for free.The lady asked me what milk I drank during my pregnancy and what milk my baby is drinking.As my baby is drinking Enfalac, she's gonna mail me some info on weaning stuff..Can't really concentrate on what she's talking as my daughter was crying..haha..

    Are you Mead Johnson member?If yes, I think you can request for some pamphlets.Hope to update here once i received the mails from them [​IMG]

    Hi,

    Need advise in preparation of enfalac.
    I use 60 ml room temp water + 30 ml hot water + 3 scoops of powder. Always find lumps of powder remaining after feeds. If shake very hard will create too much bubbles....

    donroxx Member

    Hi Ashlegih. My guess is you are using standard neck bottles? Try shaking it mid way thru your feed. Shake it like how you shake nail polish, rubbing back and forth between palms. I find the powder dissolves better in a wide neck bottle (more space to shake).

    ashwen Member

    Hi Donroxx,
    thks for ur advise. I will try your suggestion. I have tried the Cocktail-shake, Up-down shake, Red Wine Swirling... none worked.
    I am using Avent bottles.

    may i know if you give exact amt of water to match the number of scoop. example, now my bb gal is taking 4 scoop of milk powder with 120ml water. but after mixing them, the amt went up to 140ml. so does it means she's taking 120ml or 140ml? do u mummies give lesser milk powder to the water to prevent milk too heaty?

    120 ml. volume is considered before putting the powder.

    better check the expiry date for items sold in sheng siong.

    also check whether the packaging is old or new due to the selling price @ $40.65
