When you become pregnant, you will run into many decisions that you will need to make for your little one. With both pregnancies I had wanted to breastfeed, but unfortunately that did not work out well either time. I was so upset about not being able to breastfeed but wanted to find the next best option for my baby.
I remember feeling so defeated with not being able to breastfeed and with that first bottle of
formula we had given my daughter I was crying. My husband stopped me and told me
something that I will never forget, and I now tell all mamas who are struggling with breastfeeding or are not able to breastfeed. Fed is best, a happy mama is a happy baby.
I did a ton of research and found the new Enfamil NeuroPro™ formula that has a brain-building fat-protein blend of MFGM and DHA previously only found in breast milk*. This is so important to our family because we want our children to start off on the right foot and get excellent nutrition.
When your little one is a newborn, it is easy to measure their changes and growth with their
weight & size, but it’s not as easy to see what’s happening inside their brain. However, Enfamil
NeuroPro helped ease my mind.
Enfamil NeuroPro is the first and only formula to add MFGM as an ingredient in amounts
supported by clinical research. MFGM has been clinically shown to help close the gap in cognitive development between formula-fed and breastfed infants**.
When researching the different types of formula out there I found that Enfamil is the #1 brand
of infant formula recommended by pediatricians and has been used in hospitals for over 25
years. Having a company that truly understands the nutritional needs of infants is so comforting.
What is cognitive development and why is it so important?
Cognitive development relates to the way a newborn learns, acquires knowledge and interacts
with his/her surrounding environment. This includes the areas of memory, concentration, attention and perception. There is a growing body of research that indicates that nutrition early
in life may be important for learning later in the preschool years. (Source Enfamil)
Babies are little sponges, and they are soaking up information and taking in the world around
them from the beginning. From learning to recognize your face and giving you the sweetest little
smiles, to sitting up, crawling and those first words! Babies are constantly watching you and
others around, listening to and observing their surroundings.
We are truly thankful that we found Enfamil NeuroPro and can give our little one the best start
in nutrition that they need.
