Re: Toddler Formula?

We are using it for DD (14 months) because it has slightly more iron, and she is anemic. I buy the Target brand.

Re: Toddler Formula?

I use it for ds2 to put his iron supplement in; he won't take it otherwise (and it smells awful so I certainly understand that). We use Enfamil with the vanilla flavor. He's a pretty variable eater also; some days he will eat quite a bit/quite a variety of solid food and other days he won't, so I feel better about using toddler formula vs. whole milk to fill things out nutritionally. He still nurses several times a day as well, and it hasn't affected his interest in that.

Re: Toddler Formula?

I used it for a few months with my twins once they turned 1.They still weren't great eaters and I wanted to fill the gaps. They still took bottles at night and bedtime and I'd mix half toddler formula/half whole milk. I figured it worked like a multi-vitamin

ETA: I used Enfamil toddler formula because the commissary doesn't carry generic brands Enfamil toddlers was the cheapest out of the big 3 toddler formulas that are carried here

We used it for a week when ds was ultimate picky about his food. His reflux came back. As a side note, has anyone ever TASTED toddler formula? It is something AWEFULL!

Every formula we tried/used smelled awful - I would make my husband taste it. :good vibes: I don't get why my son loves it so much but for him its really helped with the reflux. Funny how every child is so different.
