Alternating formula for about a week

  • I use Similac Adv. w/Early Shield and have a container of Similac Sensitive-Can/should I alternate the two until it's gone?

  • The main reason not to from what I understand is it can lead to complications with your baby's digestion. StrongMoms has a number (1-800-232-7677) you can call to ask if the two formulas are similar enough to be safe alternating them or if you could do something like just use one after the other runs out instead, etc..  And you should always consult with a pediatrician about dietary issues in case they are aware of other information the person on the phone might not be (i.e. special health needs of your child, etc.).
