  • Rationale and Special Characteristics
    • Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron has 8 important vitamins and iron in a convenient daily dose and is an excellent supplement for a child’s transition to solid foods, during growth spurts and for the picky eater. Infants may especially require supplemental iron, as around 4–6 months of age, infants begin to lose their iron stores that they have accreted during the third trimester of pregnancy.

      The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends 400 IU of supplemental vitamin D per day beginning in the first days of life for all breastfed and partially breastfed infants who do not receive at least 1 L of infant formula per day1.

      Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron does not contain ingredients derived from the most common food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy or wheat.

      Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement does not include vitamin B12 since it is unstable in a solution that has the concentrations of iron and vitamin C found in Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement.

  • Osmolality
    • When added to 2 fl oz of infant formula or breast milk, 1 mL of Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol with Iron Liquid Multivitamin Supplement increases the osmolality by +160 mOsm/kg water2,*. If the resulting osmolality is higher than desired for a particular baby, an option is to add 0.5 mL of the supplement to the feeding twice per day.
