Enfamil A.R.

For Spit-Up. Thickened milk-based infant formula for the first 12 months.

Last Updated: Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 19:00

Description/Indication

Enfamil A.R. is a 20 Cal/fl oz, thickened, milk-based infant formula that reduces spit-up in 1 week and is appropriate for the first 12 months. Enfamil A.R. is clinically proven to reduce frequency and volume of regurgitation and meets the reflux reduction guidance of the American Academy of Pediatrics1,2.

Long-Term Usage: Enfamil A.R. is designed to provide a sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months, and provide a major source of nutrition until 12 months.

Product Features:

  • Proprietary patented Triple Health Guard® blend of brain-nourishing DHA, a Natural Defense® Dual Prebiotic blend designed to support immune health and 30 nutrients for growth
  • DHA at the clinically proven* amount of 0.32% of total fatty acids, the same amount as the worldwide breast milk average3,†, and double the amount found in the leading competitor’s product:
  • Clinically shown to improve long-term cognitive outcomes through 5 years of age4,*
  • A Natural Defense Dual Prebiotic blend to help support digestive health
  • Clinically proven to reduce spit-up by over 50%2,§
  • Meets reflux reduction guidance of the American Academy of Pediatrics1
  • Nutritionally balanced with a nutrient profile similar to routine infant formula
  • Less caloric and more nutritionally balanced than adding rice cereal to formula
  • Thickens further in the stomach, allowing easier flow through a standard nipple
  • Milk-based formula has 20:80 whey:casein ratio and unmodified, pregelatinized, high amylopectin rice starch
  • Kosher


* Studies compared infants fed Enfamil® with DHA and ARA vs. discontinued Enfamil without DHA and ARA; studied before the addition of prebiotics.

† Average amount of DHA in worldwide breast milk is 0.32% ± 0.22% (mean ± standard deviation of total fatty acids) based on an analysis of 65 studies of 2,474 women3.

‡ Enfamil A.R. has not been shown superior to the leading competitor in supporting mental, visual and immune system development. The level of DHA in Similac Pro-Advance is ~0.15% of total fatty acids.

  • Preparation of Feedings
    • Powder

      The baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Use only as directed by a medical professional. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant
      formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should NOT be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by a doctor. Discuss with parents which formula is appropriate for the baby.

      Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.

      WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35–40°F (2–4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.

      1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula.
      2. Pour the desired amount of water into the bottle. Add powder.
      3. Cap bottle and SHAKE WELL. Let bottle sit 5 minutes. SHAKE AGAIN.
