A top priority for many parents is choosing a baby formula that provides the essential nutrition that will help their infant grow into a healthy toddler. Infants depend on baby formula for nutritional needs during the first three to four months of life, then use it to supplement their diet as solid foods are introduced over the first year. Parents put their trust in the manufacturers and advertisers of these products as they make their decision on which baby formula is right for their child.
At Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, we are staunch advocates for product safety, especially when it comes to baby formula. We understand how fragile the first year of life is, and work diligently to protect the rights of consumers who rely on the safety and quality of baby formula available on the market.
Gerber is one of the most recognizable names in baby formula and nutritional products for infants and toddlers. The company has been in the baby business since 1927 and has been a trusted source of nutrition over the past 90 years. Its product line includes infant formula, baby formula, toddler food, and snacks. Its current Good Start Staging System formula offers parents a wealth of options to satisfy a variety of nutritional needs for infants and toddlers.
The Gerber Good Start Staging System includes primary infant formula, supplemental protein and probiotic formulas for breast-fed babies, formulas that adapt to the nutritional needs of babies transitioning to solid foods, and soy based formulas for babies with a sensitivity to milk products. The company also has specifically designed formulas that are focused on reducing colic, fussiness, and gas.
Enfamil brand baby formula was first introduced on the market in the 1950s, and was advertised as a formula engineered to be the closest to human breast milk. The company boasts that Enfamil is the brand most recommended by pediatricians and hospitals, and advertises its DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) ingredient, which is an omega-3 fatty acid that purportedly boosts brain power in developing infants. The Enfamil product line offers formulas designed to support nutrition and remedy digestive problems related to gas, spitting up, and cow milk allergies.
Similac baby formula was first introduced in the 1920s, but was then reformulated in the 1950s. Similac baby formula is specially formulated for sensitive stomachs and advertises its use of organic and non-GMO ingredients. The baby formula comes in a variety of products designed to address a wide range of infant and baby nutritional and digestive needs, including premature infants, protein sensitivities, and supplemental nutrition for babies that suffer from frequent bouts of diarrhea. The company recently added a line of organic fruit and vegetable puree packaged in squeeze packs to be used as a healthy snack.
