What are the benefits of membership?
From what I could tell from various research, the use of multiple formulas is generally discouraged since it could upset the GI system of babies. However, if a baby's system could handle it and not be upset, any other issues?
I think that's definitely a question best answered by your pediatrician. Out of curiosity, why would you want to use multiple formulas?
You should not use multiple formulas for the exact reason you listed above. There is no other reason that I can think of, but be sure to ask a pediatrician. Also, a baby may seem to be handling the switches just fine, but wouldn't you want to do what is best and easiet for the baby's tummy? Is there a special reason you would want to give different formulas?
