Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Baby not sleeping well..too much sugar.
I've recently switched to this organic formula after feeding the similac non gmo formula to my son for the past five months. On the non gmo formula he's a wonderful sleeper. One long two hour nap and a shorter one hour nap every day. He slept through the night starting at 3 months. A couple days ago I switched to the organic formula because, well, it's organic.
First I noticed that it's foamy when mixed. It's also grittier, and separates when sitting for a while. But he seems to really like the formula, so the mixture didn't bother me. However I noticed his sleeping habits completely change as well. During the day he won't sleep more than 30 to 40 minutes. If I'm lucky he'llsleep during a short car ride. He's tired and fussy, and cranky. It's exhausting. By the end of the day he his almost impossible to handle because he's so overtired. He takes his bottle at night and goes right to sleep. But hen he wakes up less than an hour later and the battle begins. Soooo much crying! He won't settle down. It's like he too wound up to sleep soundly.
This didn't happen before when I was feeding him the non gmo. I'm definitely switching back to it! I would recommend the non gmo over organic.
Also I did notice the difference in the ingredients between the two. The organic formula lists organic sugar. The non gmo doesn't have an added sugar. If the organic formula didn't have the extra sugar content I wouldn't mind sticking to it. I really do believe the extra sugar is what's causing my baby to sleep significantly less.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LB24 My daughter loves this formula
My daughter is 4 months. I exclusively breastfeed but my milk supply is starting to dry up.. So I wanted the next best thing for her which would be an organic formula. I like this product but I am not completely happy with it because it has so much foam/ bubbles & I feel it's formula wasted and with the price it cost I would hate to be losing any.

We decided to switch my son from Total Comfort to the Organic version of Similac Advanced due to the fact that I'm not entirely crazy about the idea of feeding him maltodextrin as the primary ingredient in his food. While the organic formula did smell better, it does not mix well at all. The final product has the appearance of a granular vanilla latte, complete with an airy foam of which any professional barista would be envious. While my son had no problem taking the bottle, I noticed a particularly unsavory film coating the bottle afterwards. The visual was enough to convince me to return the package. We eat first with our eyes and Similac Organic makes me want to shut mine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Art2016 Not for us
I was given a few samples in the hospital until my milk came in and they worked great. I am a bf mom who gives the occasional formula when out. Just encase I didn't provide enough milk I bought this as a backup. For a whole day I had a baby who was fussy, vomiting, and crying. I wouldn't say my little one has a sensitive stomach because I have given other similac product, but this is not for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaykye244 Organic works best for my son
My son is going on 3months old and I had to go through 4 different types of formulas until I found the organic works best for my son. He's less fussy, less gassy and more of a calm baby that doesn't stop smiling... LOL... All the other formulas that I tried either made him break out or constipated and upset. The organic formula made things easier and less stressful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MomOfGirls Bad batch?
We have been using this product since we weaned our daughter at 7 months. The first couple weeks were great. We were very happy that the first formula we tried seems to work for her. I just bought 4 more this weekend, since we like to have plenty at home, but I'm noticing this can we opened is not dissolving right. We use Dr. Browns bottles, and there are large clumps stuck to the vent. Is this normal? I don't remember seeing this before. I hope I didn't just waste all that money on bad formula!
