All pediatric : Formulas more or less the same. The differences are cow mill base, soy or anti allergenic formula. At 9 month, child needs already fruits , vegetables, meats and serials.

Cow milk formula: Please address your child's weight with your doctor. Each child finds her own growth curve. If you are no longer breastfeeding, then formula may be part of an infant diet. Your child should be expanding her dietary repertoire. Recall that cow's milk formula is an ideal diet for a baby cow. Human milk has many infection fighting properties and should be offered first if available.
