Learn About Similac's Breakthrough in Infant Formula
Whether you choose to breastfeed or formula-feed your baby—or both—adequate nutrition during infancy is essential to ensuring proper growth and development.
Most parents know to look for nutrients like Lutein, natural Vitamin E and DHA, which help support your baby’s overall growth, and brain and eye development. But what’s so exciting now is Similac’s breakthrough research on Human Milk Oligosaccharide (or HMOs). Similac has introduced the first (and only) infant formula in the U.S. to have 2’-FL HMO. This is important because HMOs support your baby’s developing immune system.
As a mom, you’re always looking for ways to keep your baby healthy and support their immune systems as they grow and are exposed to so many new things. Similac provides another layer of immune support with the addition of 2’-FL HMO, an immune-nourishing prebiotic, previously only found in breast milk. Similac now has infant formula with no artificial growth hormones and is non-GMO, so your baby gets everything he needs to grow, and nothing he doesn’t.
