Other Similac product(s)
Similac for Spit-Up Infant Formula with Iron and OptiGRO is a specialized milk-based infant formula with added rice starch to reduce frequent spit up. The reduced lactose formula with rice starch makes it easier for baby to digest. It's been clinically shown to reduce frequent spit-up in healthy babies by 54 percent, among healthy 2-month-old infants, compared to standard formula. In addition, the formula contains prebiotics to promote digestive health. This formula is iron-fortified for baby's growth and brain development. Abbott Nutrition developed an exclusive blend of important ingredients found in breast milk called OptiGRO. This blend includes DHA for brain and eye development, lutein to support eye health and vitamin E to support developing cells. In addition, it contains calcium for strong bones and carotenoids that are naturally found in breast milk found to act as antioxidants to fight off disease.
Baby's with other dietary needs will find Similac for Spit-Up Infant Formula to be Kosher, Halal and gluten-free. Formula can be purchased in 12.03 oz and 1.41 lb Can of powder formula and 1-Quart Ready-to-Feed Bottle. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and therefore should not be fed to premature infants or infants with compromised immune systems unless directed by the physician. The Ready-to-Feed bottle may be the best option, consult with your baby's physician.
