You’ve probably heard that prebiotics promote digestive health. But what exactly are they? And what can they do for your baby? Unlike probiotics — which are live, good bacteria... prebiotics feed the good bacteria. They’re actually a type of carbohydrate that helps soften stools. The prebiotics in breast milk feed the beneficial bacteria throughout the large intestine.
 
But if you’re formula feeding and want a similar effect, you can give your baby a prebiotics blend designed to reach the entire area. One type designed to feed bacteria in the beginning of the large intestine. And another designed to work throughout...so together they feed it all.
 
Enfamil Reguline is an everyday infant formula that feeds the whole large intestine... with a blend of 2 prebiotics that has been clinically proven to promote soft, comfortable stools. Which can be very comforting to you and to your baby.
