There are different reasons people want to change formula. While you could juggle percentage mixtures of the old and the new, I would suggest offering a small quantity of the new formula, wait a bit and try some more.

Sometimes a kid will easily switch from one to another. Sometimes they balk at the change of taste or texture & a blend is needed for transition. Be aware that whatever you do the first formula is still being processed for a couple days after you stop it. Any true change would be most apparent after that transition.
