Similac Pro-Advance Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Always promoted Similac.. My daughter is 4 months old. First few weeks I used a lot of samples, and she took to Similac pro-advance the best. I really prefer this over Enfamil because it would dissolve well, the bubbles would disappear immediately, and wouldn’t have a bad smell to it. Friends and family have had a baby boom the last 3 months and this is what I recommend to all and they use whether for supplementing or feeding. I buy Similac from BJs, since she’s gotten bigger I buy 2-3 containers at a time. However, my last 2 have left so much residue in the bottle, even after I heat up the formula. It’s been pretty inconvenient since I have to warm the bottle so much it takes a lot of time for me to get it to cool back down for her to drink. My daughter sometimes has to drink it hotter than usual just so she can drink it down. I really don’t want to switch but I’m afraid if it still leaves the residue and takes my daughter so much time to drink, I’ll have no choice. Not sure if it’s the batch, but I bought 3 from BJ’s this last time. Also something small but it was better when the scoop was completely transparent especially for when I need half scoops to see, now the color is a white transparent tone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Powder residue in the Bottle My DD is 4 months old and has been on Similac Pro Advance for all this while. But I bought my most recent stock of Similac Pro Advance from Costco. This batch has been so powdery and leaves a residue in all the bottles. :( Very disappointed that my most favorite thing for the child would cause this powdering as a result of which my DD has spit up every feed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from was doing good up until 6mo Similac Pro Advanced has been a good match for us, however just recently my baby started having diarrhea after every bottle. I'm considering switching her formula to see if that's the case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powder Turned Brown and Smelly I have used Pro-Advance with my 2 year old and now with my 4 month old without any problems at all. Recently, the last container i bought (expires August of 2020), the powder turned a weird brownish color and smells when the container is opened. It hasn't been exposed to sun light, and been kept in a cool and dry location. I was quite disappointed to see this considering the amount of money spent on the container. I'm not sure why this happened and hope this is a 1 time only situation. Hoping to see if this has happened to anyone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than Enfamil Always preferred this brand than Enfamil. I breastfed most of my children's 1st year but when traveling far I would always have some formula in case and Similac never disappoint. Recently with my 4th child I got sick and couldn't breastfeed so I had to give formula. Started with Enfamil (husband bought didn't find Similac at store) gived baby hard time to poop and fuzziness. After 2 days when I got home bought Similac and baby showed improvement in 1 day. Less crying and fuzziness. Was pooping normal and he loves the formula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it at first now not so much We started using Similac Pro Advance from day one until my milk supply was well established. I supplemented for the first month and my son loved it and didnt have any problems. We stopped supplementing and were exclusively breastfeeding for the second month. Now that he is 3 months old and my milk supply is diminishing, we tried to go back to this formula but my son hates it. He gets fussy, and gassy and won't drink as much as he used to. Perhaps we have to find a formula that tastes more like breastmilk or it's somehow closer to it. Whatever it may be, we are definitely switching to something different.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from May not be best to use for supplementation We use this to supplement breastfeeding when my supply dropped because I am pregnant. Baby is constantly constipated :( She doesn't have constipation issue with Similac for Supplementation, Enfamil NeuroPro, or Earth's Best Organic. We have tried switching her back to another brand or supplementing her with my frozen milk and constipation went away pretty quickly. She does take it with no issue. Does not cause gas or spit up - constipation is the only problem we have been dealing with.
