My son is always full of little surprises and with each of these moments comes a treasure trove of memories that will last a lifetime. Ben, who is now seven months old, instantly melted my heart the first time I saw him. He smiles practically at every moment, always loves to be by my side whether I am working, at the park or on-the-go.
His older sister Sarah, my beautiful daughter, is his favorite playmate who has already taught him so much. He watches her constantly and loves it when she interacts and plays with him. She loves to help with bathing him, and she even chooses his outfits every morning in addition to which toys he should play with. There is no greater joy than watching them create memories amongst each other.
I am so thankful that I work from home part-time and can witness each and every one of Ben’s first moments. Ben’s most recent milestones have included mimicking sounds including blowing raspberries and saying “hey!” He also has been crawling around everywhere and he especially loves to follow me wherever I go from the kitchen to Sarah’s bedroom. He loves to sit and listen to bedtime stories at night as well.
Seeing all of Ben’s milestones is one of the greatest joys of parenthood. I am so thankful for his strong immunity, overall health, and budding personality with a double dose of quite the sense of humor. Becoming a parent makes you more aware of these special moments that can never be recreated. This is one of the many reasons why I choose Similac as my son’s formula. I also had Similac as a baby.
Similac is known for focusing on the research and innovation that supports infant nutrition while listening to parents’ needs. Similac dairy ingredients come from cows that have not been treated with artificial growth hormones, and is the first and only leading infant formula brand with no artificial growth hormones.**
While providing a strong start for your baby’s immune system, did you know that Similac has a unique blend of DHA, lutein, and vitamin E, to help support your baby’s overall growth, and brain and eye development?
Ben is fed Similac. Similac Pro-Advance and Pro-Sensitive formulas have 2′-FL Human Milk Oligosaccharide* (HMO), an immune-nourishing prebiotic that circulates throughout the body. Similac with 2′-FL HMO helps strengthen baby’s immune system to be more like the breastfed infant than ever before. Similac for immune support provides complete nutrition for his first year.
I can already see how Similac has positively impacted Ben’s wellbeing, paving the way for so many more milestones to come. Just today, he is now beginning to pull himself up and also has his second tooth coming in! I am very much looking forward to more first moments to follow each day and sharing these precious memories with my loved ones and readers.

Breastfeeding is the gold standard for infant nutrition. For moms who cannot or choose not to breastfeed, formula can be used. Talk to your pediatrician about what type of infant formula is best for your child.
