We spoke with Similac Brand Manager Irina Katon about what to expect from this top-tier brand at this year’s Baby Show!

What should expectant and new parents know about your brand?

Similac is the number one infant formula fed in hospitals in United States.  It is chosen by pediatricians and moms alike. Similac has been helping moms nourish their babies and supporting parents for over 90 years. 

What’s new (in the past year) with your brand?

#PromisesProject: This Mother’s day the makers of Similac conducted a survey of 1,000 parents that revealed that 72 percent feel judged by other parents over how they raise their children, and only 29 percent said they will step in when they see parents being pressured by others. As a result, we want to change the attention parents give to their peers to be more positive and supportive.

As a maker of infant formulas, Abbott Nutrition understands that the goal of all parents is to keep their babies fed and healthy. The campaign is grounded in the well-known tension between bottle feeding and breastfeeding, though the message reaches much further. Parents make promises to their children to love them, support them and believe in them—the same pledges should apply to our fellow parents. Together we can make parenting about joy, not judgement.  We invite all parents to join them in making a promise of positivity #PromisesProject. 

What is your most popular product or service right now?

Similac formulas with 2’-FL HMO’s, Similac Pro-Advance, Similac Pro-Sensitive and Similac Pro-Total Comfort, our biggest breakthrough in innovation for immune support.  Similac has been named #1 Pediatrician recommended infant formula* (Based on combined recommendations of Similac and Elecare combined), #1 Chosen by parents and #1 fed in hospitals.
