Similac® For Supplementation

For breastfeeding moms who choose to introduce formula

Similac For Supplementation is the first Similac formula designed for breastfeeding moms who choose to supplement. It has more prebiotics than any other Similac formula, along with the same benefits as Similac Advance. Some moms may notice changes in stool patterns when introducing formula to a breastfeeding routine, and studies have shown that prebiotics produce softer stools more like those of breastfed infants.

Feeding solutions

It takes time for a baby’s digestive system to mature, so a fussy baby
doesn’t have to mean switching formulas. 

Always talk to your pediatrician about feeding issues before making a switch.

Before switching, try these suggestions:

  • Use a different bottle or nipple.
  • Use a different burping position.
  • Adjust your body position.
  • Feed your baby less formula at each feeding while her digestive system grows.
  • Use liquid formula instead of powder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chose similac when I couldn't breastfeed I am a first time mom who had a determination to breastfeed only! My daughter lost to much weight her first few days of life and it came down to trying formula or admitting her to the hospital. I researched and chose similac for supplementation. I could not be happier with my choice. My daughter is now a healthy happy thriving 9 month old who can not sit still. I am so thankful that there is a trusted brand like similac that I was able to lean on when it came to my daughters health. It was very reassuring that they offered one specifically for what we needed supplementation. My daughter and I love similac! August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 life saver! I had introduced formula to my son before and it broke my heart I didn't like what we used and t ended up making him very constipated. A few weeks to a month or so later a friend tried him on this formula at that point I felt like I can trust it and so I gave it a try because I was falling apart trying to keep up with his demand and all his heart break when he wasn't fully satisfied with how slow the flow of my milk went. This helped him get back on track and I feel safe and the best about using it it seemed a light was turned on inside my child he seems all around healthier and better. Thank you similac! :) September 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great start to formula As a breastfeeding mother, I supplement with this formula. It was a nice start to formula because I really did not know which formula to choose and with this being my first child, I really did not know. My Dr offered no help when I asked about supplementing because of my schedule so when I saw this supplementation brand, I took a chance in hopes my baby stomach could handle and it did! I am giving this a 4 out of 5 because after about a month of using the formula, she had horrible gas but because she is no used to formula, I have switched to the orange fussy gas spit up can and so far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent formula I used this formula for five months to supplement breast feeding. It work very well and was easy for my baby to transition to. It also was a great help and relief to me to be able to supplement my nursing to make sure my baby was getting sufficient feedings. I would definitely recommend Similac for Supplementation to any mom considering supplementing breastfeeding. September 1, 2015
