**Enfamil Prosobee Soy Infant Formula was given to my daughter in the hospital when she was first born.  She had too stay in the hospital for about 2 months and this is my preferred formula because she had problems with regular formula and had acid reflux.  She also had problems burping too.  Once i started giving her **Enfamil Prosobee Soy Infant Formula all her symptoms slowly started going away.  She was so much more pleasant and happy and healthy because of the goodness of this formula.  It came in convenient little bottles of liquid.  Which made it easy to give to her when she started crying for food.  ****

I have a daughter who had a lot of stomach issues and we had to try several different types of formula. Her Pediatrician recommended Enfamil Prosobe and it was awful. I will have to say, I seen more throw up and poor appetites with this formula over any other brand we tried. I know everyone is different and it may work for some, but I would not recommend it to anyone. It is very hard on the stomach and I have a very hard time getting her to try another formula. If I ever have another child, this formula is not an option at all. The smell is also very bad. It is very thin so it is also very hard to mix well in the water. I will say it is all around a very bad option for formula if you are looking to try something different.

Easily Digested
My daughter had a hard time digesting this formula.

Ease of Preparation
Not hard to prepare at all. It is just like all other formulas. It is a lot thinner. I will say you have to make sure you shake it up very wee. It is a little harder to mix since it is so thin.

Love this Formula.

By 

from Florida

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

I know I have a lot of reviews that speak very highly of Gerber formula, and that still holds true. I am a big fan of Gerber Formula. However when I gave birth to my daughter and was unable to breast feed her the hospital had us try this. The regular Enfamil caused too much spitting and throwing up, so we decided to go with soy.

In the hospital they gave us the premixed bottles, which I found really handy. I have since ordered a couple cans of the powder and have picked up the pre mixed bottles again. They also offer the on the go packs which are similar to the Crystal Light on the go tea mixes that are available for adults.

I love that there are so many options for such a great formula.

This is also priced well, and is what many of the state programs use for there WIC babies.

Easily Digested
Since starting this formula my daughter has only spit up twice. Which is so much better than when she was spitting up after every bottle of the regular formula. She just seems to digest it a million times better.

Ease of Preparation
There are many different options, and they make the ease of preparing a bottle super easy, not that it was super hard to prepare a bottle to begin with.

Great product for stomach issues

By

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

My daughter was having lots of stomach issues her doctor recommended to change to this brand and soy. We saw a huge improvement within hours. We no longer have any stomach issues but doctor recommends we stay with this brand and product since she is doing so well. . I would not change it for anything. My daughter is doing great. Thank you all for a great product.

Easily Digested
My baby loves to drink this formula and no longer has an issues with her stomach . She has no problems and is able to easily digest .

Ease of Preparation
Love that this product is so easy to prepare . Instructions are simple just add water and scoops of formula. If I don't make bottle in advance I just take a bottle water and add water and formula to bottle while on the go. Love it.

Great soy formula.

By 

from USA

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

My son was born on September 5th, 2013. After struggling and struggling with formulas, I soon discovered he had an intolerance to milk. I tried my best to breast fed but I had to have surgery after giving birth for removing my gall bladder, plus he really couldn't latch on well and I wasn't producing enough milk. Endless nights we had of crying, discomfort, and overall pain. I noticed he would get rashes and bumps a lot. Finally a nurse suggested to me switching to a soy product. I had already liked Enfamil so we tried the ProSobee. Finally after about two weeks on the soy, he slowly started to improve. My situation is strange, I do have partner but things are rough, so taking care of a screaming fussy 2 month baby at the time combined with my surgery was so hard. ProSobee stopped what they had determined was colic. The only downside is, it caused some constipation but with a little prune juice and time, he now has normal bowel moverments.

Easily Digested
This is easy for my son to digest, I gave it a nine because he does suffer from acid re-flux, but he has always had it since birth. The soy seemed to lessen the amount of spitting up but there is still some noticeable re-flux.

Ease of Preparation
Super easy. We are doing 8 ounces of water, 4 scopes of formula. Shake, put in the fridge.

Improved gas symptoms.

By 

from Michigan

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

My son was very gassy and had colic issues for the first several months of his life. After discovering that I wasnt going to be able to breastfeed, I started him on lactose based Enfamil. My son began to show the symptoms of the gas and colic, so we switched him to Prosobee. I had heard that sometimes you have to try several different formulas before you find the right one. However, I was saved that frustration because Prosobee worked out for him. He had reduced symptoms right away. My son is very healthy and very smart and Prosobee provided him with the complete nutrition to thrive.

Easily Digested
My son switched to this soy formula after the doctor recommended soy formulas for his gas. His symptoms improved after the switch. I could see that this formula was easy to digest and gentle on my son's belly.

Ease of Preparation
Aside from the formula being messy because I used the powder formula, I had trouble sometimes when it would seem to stay in clumps in the water after shaking the bottle with the formula in it thoroughly. It was annoying sometimes to interrupt my baby's feedng to have to shake the bottle again. My son didn't want to wait for his bottle while I shook it, of course.

Nothing else works for my son!

By 

from USA

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

My son is not allergic to regular formula but the soy works so much better with his stomach! It took me a few months to find one that worked for him and this was it. I literally went through six different brands before I came across this one. He was always having stomach pains and would either have a hard time going to the bathroom or was going too much. Out of all the soy brands I tried Enfamil was the best. Quailty is great and the price is good, for the price of formula anyway. Hes now ten months and is still on the Enfamil Prosobee.

Easily Digested
Like I said before, this formula is was his belly was able to digest the best. He was able to go to the bathroom without getting belly pains, but it also wouldnt leak out the diaper!

Ease of Preparation
Its very easy to prepare, includes a scoop with the exact measure for 2 oz. It would be a better if the scoop would stay at the top of the container somehow ( sometimes it works its way down a little into the formila when you first open it and need to stick your fingers into the formula to get it out) but besides that its very easy to prepare.

This formula really helped my son.

By 

from Nesconset,ny

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

I am a mom of twins, which when you're already having your first kid is never wracking enough let alone two. When they were in the hospital, the nurses had to formula feed both my son and daughter because I was on paid medication from my csection. Out of both my daughter wasn't taking to the formula well, eating, but not like her brother was. After a week and they sent us home, they gave us about a months worth of what they were giving the hospital which I believe was similac. For a few days of feeding both of them what they were being fed in the hospital, I started noticing my son spitting up more than usual. I didn't think anything of it because my daughter didnt really take to it in the hospital. About two weeks later my son was literally projectile vomiting after every feeding. We took him to the doctor and we tried a different formula. After another unsuccessful month of my son throwing up, the doctor recommended enfamil prosobee and I couldn't believe how fast he was better. We found out he was having acid reflux which I guess is common sometimes in newborns, and this formula really helped more than I could of imagined, thank goodness for this formula and before switching anything, if you feel something is wrong ask your childs pediatrician about this and they'll probably agree. Great product definitely recommend,

great formula

By 

from USA

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

My son was put on similac the blue can and he spit up too much at the hospital. They then switched him to similac sensitive but he had too much diarrhea and was too fussy from having to go so often so we changed him to enfamil prosobee. He did great right away no more diarrhea and he looked more relaxed :) I love that it has helped with his diarrhea and seems to keep him full for two hours. I wouldn't give him a different type if formula. Although the price is a little high I think its an ok price considering it is for sensetive tummies and there are different forms if this formula to buy including liquid and the big cans. I think getting the bigger can saves more money but I like getting the small cans to put in the diaper bag when we are in a rush and need to get out the door quick. Overall this is a great formula to buy for babies with a sensitive tummy and maybe even take away your child's diarrhea problems. The only thing I don't like is searching for the scoop but I usually use the empty cans scoop untill I find the new one.

great for colics and acid reflux but TOO MUCH CORN SYRUP 55%

By 

from USA

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

My daughter also suffered from acid reflux, thankfully she's doing much better however, after researching more about ingrediants, one stood out to me.CORN SYRUP because it contained 55% . This a quiet harmful ingredient for babies. I found less than a handful of formulas that dindt contain this ingredient among them, an organing brand, but opted for infant by enfamil. Reason? About 29 formular (organic based) had high levels of arsenic, unfortunately, the names of these formulas were not disclosed. The formula has work fine for her, but I don't want her to consume 55% of corn syrup simply because its cheaper than cane sugar. Plus it doesn't help her constipation.

Easily Digested
A bit constpated. Huge negative is the high level of conr syrup.

Definately suggest for babies with issues of spitting up.

By 

from Lemoore, CA

Comments about Enfamil ProSobee Soy Infant Formula:

I tried to breastfeed my daughter but for whatever reason I couldn't produce enough milk so I had to supplement with formula. I tried regular milk based formula but she seemed to spit up everytime I would give it to her so her pediatrician suggested perhaps the soybased would be gentler on her stomach so we switched to Enfamil Prosobee soy milk and I definately saw a difference. She was able to hold it down alot more. She did occasionally spit up but what baby doesn't. I was really pleased with this product and would most certainly recommend it.
