Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT I had a baby who didn’t have much colic or gas he did absolutely amazing with this formula !!!! He is now 7 months and still on this formula with no issues. I am also pregnant and will be using this formula for my newborn and the best part is if she’s sensitive they have formula for sensitive baby’s too. I felt bad about not breastfeeding until I came across similac it provides all the nutrients your baby needs to grow healthy and strong don’t feel bad go similac . SIMILAC IS THE WAY TO GO !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The powder form, ready to feed and singles packets are convenient for situations I have 3 kids I used similac advance with and currently using it with my third. They all have been happy on it with no disgestive problems. And it’s convenient to have it in powder, ready to feed and singles packets and the ready made made mini bottles, to suit whatever situation you might need it in. I would definitely recommend similac.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Causes extreme gas We used the pre mixed formula for our baby and every single time it caused him extreme amount of gas. He was so uncomfortable that we had to throw the rest of the bottles out. This formula has caused us so much fussiness and lost sleep. I do not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great for feeding time! Baby loves it! I hadn’t tried this product before I was sent a free sample box. After, I used it for the first time my baby and I fell in love! It helped relieve his gas and generally enjoyed it. I can’t breastfeed all the time so to be able to make a bottle using this great formula is so convenient and amazing for the baby! I was afraid to use formula thinking it wouldn’t be as affective as breast milk but Similac proved me wrong! I will continue buying formula because I was so pleased! Thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have only had problems We've tried Similac with out daughter on multiple occasions, created the formula exactly as directed, fed and burped her, and each time about an hour or two after feeding she would start screaming like she was in serious pain, and we couldn't get her to stop until we switched to a different brand of formula all together. 10 out of 10 times would recommend something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! All three of my kids have been on similac and ONLY similac I would probably recommend pro total comfort, sensitive, and advance due to my three kids taking all of them. My daughter was the only one who could take similac advance, my second son couldn’t due to him throwing it up and always being constipated so they switched him to pro total comfort and it improved but not fully so sensitive was next and he did AMAZING! With that one, my third son who was born in Dec. 2019 started on similac advance and didn’t take it well either, same problem as my second son, so of course they switched him to pro total comfort and again it worked AMAZING with him. I don’t think I’ll ever use another brand other than similac, I always recommend it to my friends, and close family members. Because even if once can doesn’t work with baby there’s one out there that they have that will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Similac is the best by far I love Similac there are so many choices they will always have what u need

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for little tummies that are not sensitive We used similac advance when we first came home from the hospital after having my son, little did we know that he was lactose intolerant and couldn’t have it, but as a mom and a nanny I’ve used this formula many times before. I would recommend it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product causes extreme constipation My 2 month old has been on Advance, Sensitive and now Total Comfort - he has been constipated since birth, with the Similac products. Pediatrician gave samples of a different brand, which worked WONDERS; however we are on WIC and unfortunately they do not offer a different brand of formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daughter has no problems I give my 2.5 month old daughter breast milk and Similac. Due to me not producing a lot of breast milk I give her formula and she has no problem with it. Her dad doesn't want her on formula, but she gets it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best One! I tried almost all the similar formulas for my now 3 month old and I found this to be the best one. No colics no spitting out! I recommend this one for sure!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colic and Constipation The hospital started us out with Similac advanced, but then we started to notice the stool count shorten. Similac Advanced caused my baby to have extremely bad constipation to where now I have been switched from Advanced to Sensitive to now Total-Comfort and my baby hasn’t had a stool in 4 days. If it wasn’t because of WIC only covering Similac, I would look for something else that fits my child and what he needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids are healthy, smart and strong We used Similac for our kids and we are thankful they grew healthy, smart and strong. I definitively trust and recommend the great products from Similac.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gassy and constipated I breastfed my baby his first month then switched him to this and he loves it, but it makes him extremely gassy and constipated. It also clumps at times along the side of the bottle and really doesn’t have a pleasant smell. I have 12 cans of it so now I have to figure out which other product to switch to.
