Using different formulas?

  • 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?
