Advanced to Go & Grow Formula

  • I have a ten month old at home and I have thought about switching her to the Go & Grow Formula for older babies within the next 1 to 1 1/2 months...has anyone tried this newer formula?  Considering she will start drinking regular cows milk soon, I thought this would be a nice addition to her regular diet.

  • My daughter is almost 13 months old and we just finished the cans of Similac Advance that we had left. We did a slow transition to whole milk and she is now drinking whole milk no problem. I am supplementing with the GO & Grow formula once a day, morning cup. I feel that since I am not giving her any added vitamins and since she has always been on the low side of the growth charts, a little added nutrition isn't going to hurt. Does she need it? Probably not, she eats so good, but this way I know she is getting the additional nutrients she might be needing. For me it is just a supplement and not a whole milk replacement. Use your best judgement or ask your pediatrician. She has had no problems with a different taste or flavor. She drinks it the same as she drank her regular formula for the last 3 1/2 months.  Good luck.

  • Thanks for the advice.  I have done some more research and have decided to continue with the regular advanced formula until she turns one (only about 2 more months), and then switch her to cows milk like you did with your daughter.  My baby girl is tall and lean (30th percentile for her age), so I would love to add the Go & Grow as an added supplement once a day as well.  She is already on Poly-Vi-Sol for a low hemoglobin count, so switching to an all cows milk diet may not be enough for her.  She loves her formula now, so the taste should not be a problem.  Thanks again for the advice Smile

  • My daughter was on Go and Grow for most of this past year and she loved it.  She transitioned from her regular formula to the Go and Grow without a problem, and I was really happy with the product itself. Jordan is a small kid and fussy eater, but loved her bottles and milk. She really needed the extra nutrition the Go and Grow gave and we had a really good experience with it.

  • I have a 13 months old and shes on the Go & Grow Formula and she loves it...My doctor recommended it because she was on Similac advance and when she turned a year I gave her whole milk and she broke out into a rash and I also gave her latose whole milk but she wouldnt take it..But I'm thankful they came out with the Go & Grow Formula because its great and she loves it.
