Disclaimer

can anyone tell me if the enfamil reguline "ready to feed" infant formula designed for softer stools has a bitter taste?

No: It is the nipple that is giving off the bitter taste. The formula should not be bitter since the ingredients have no bitter taste!

Maybe: Taste is a personal issue.I believe every formula I have ever tasted has a foul taste like chalky water. Why babies seem to love it is interesting. Newborns cannot sense taste like adults, as their "taste " centers have not fully developed and they have no memory of other foods.
