Similac® 360 Total Care®†

Has 5 HMO prebiotics structurally identical to those in breast milk.

Pure Bliss® by Similac®†

Gentle nutrition imported from Europe: Starts with fresh milk from grass-fed cows, and has prebiotics for digestive health (GOS), nucleotides for immune support, and brain-nourishing DHA.

For Tolerance Issues: Gentle Formulas

For infants who experience mild intolerance to routine formulas, you may want to suggest a gentle formula option.

Similac® 360 Total Care® Sensitive

Designed for fussiness and gas due to lactose sensitivity, and has 5 HMO prebiotics structurally identical to those in breast milk.

Similac Pro-Total Comfort®†

Designed for infants who may have difficulty tolerating other milk-based formulas: A gentle formula with 2'-FL HMO for immune system support and partially hydrolyzed whey protein for easy digestion.

Similac® Soy Isomil®

Lactose-free, milk-free, gentle, plant protein-based soy formula.

Infant Formulas for Food Allergy and Prematurity

For infants with more serious tolerance concerns or prematurity, you may choose to recommend one of the following specialized formulas.

Similac® Alimentum®

Designed for food allergies and colic symptoms due to protein sensitivity: An extensively hydrolyzed protein-based, hypoallergenic formula with 2'-FL HMO for immune support, Alimentum starts reducing colic symptoms due to protein sensitivity within 24 hours in most infants.


Designed for infants who cannot tolerate intact or hydrolyzed protein: A hypoallergenic, amino acid-based formula that does not contain milk protein, soy protein, fructose, galactose, lactose, or gluten.

Similac® NeoSure®†

Enriched nutrition§ for preterm infants: Has increased protein, vitamins, and minerals to promote catch-up growth.

* No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rbST-treated and non-rbST-treated cows.

Not for infants or children with galactosemia.

 Based on a clinical study with Similac® Alimentum® Ready to Feed (without DHA/ARA, 2′-FL HMO, lutein, and beta-carotene). A crossover clinical study of infants experiencing colic symptoms due to cow’s milk protein sensitivity showed 5 of 6 infants initiated on Alimentum during the first week achieved a reduction in excessive crying. Data on file. Study AC84, August 2004. Abbott Nutrition; Columbus, Ohio.
