Enfamil vs Nan HW1 Review

By 7:59:00 AM , ,



I mentioned from my previous post that my Pedia recommended us to use Nan HW1 as formula milk. Since I wasn't able to breastfeed we ended up using formula milk everyday. We only used Nan for less than 2 months. We switched to Enfamil A+ 1 because of some reason. Pero kami lang mag-asawa nagdecide to switch our baby's milk without our Pedia's consultation. However, we also brought it up, he agreed naman without hesitation. He said, it's up to us kung magswitch kami ng milk.

It happen one night when my baby didn't poop the whole day. He cried a lot and we don't know what to do. There are times he looks red and making sound of urghhhh means he's going to let go of something but when we check there's none. I listed our observation of the two formula milk.

Nestle NAN HW1



Advantage:

  • It has DNA and ARA that both stimulate development for the brain
  • Container is much better because it has an allowance where you can slip the scooped milk powder to get a better amount of it
  • Cheaper or much affordable
  • Base on review, this milk is for anti-allergies.
  • Stocks are available in any grocery or Mercury drug store

Disadvantage:
  • My baby had constipation
  • Having a hard time pooping. My baby was always making sound and getting red when letting go of his poop.
  • Green stool (I researched about this and it's perfectly normal for formula feeding infants to have green stool)
  • Leftover milk is smelly

Mead Johnson Enfamil A+ 1



Advantage:
  • Highest DHA for brain development
  • Yellow stool (I believe yellow stool is healthier than green stool. This is my opinion only)
  • My baby is not having a hard time letting go of his poop. He even didn't encounter constipation with this milk
  • My baby gained a lot and he loves this milk.
  • Leftover milk in the bottle are not that smelly

Disadvantage:
  • Much expensive and powder milk in boxes are hard to find
  • I don't like the container
  • Don't have ARA
  • There are bubbles when you shake the milk to mix with water

At first my baby didn't like Enfamil but when we see the result of his stool we continue using it. Until now we are still using this milk and we didn't have any problem with it. Hope you find something helpful with this review.
