Similac Alimentum Omega-3 & 6 Iron Fortified Infant Formula
Description & Features+
• Contains cow’s milk protein that is broken down into tiny pieces (extensively hydrolyzed) to virtually eliminate allergic reactions in most babies who are allergic to cow’s milk protein 3,4
• DHA, an omega-3 fat, to support the normal physical development of the brain and eyes.
• Easy to digest†
“Hypoallergenic” does not mean “non”-allergenic.
†Similar to other infant formulas.
‡ Based on a clinical study with Similac® Alimentum® Ready to Feed without DHA and ARA. The results are from a small group of infants who were experiencing colic symptoms due to cow’s milk protein sensitivity.
