Depends: Formula is not paperclips. There can be minor differences in the ingredients that babies gut may deal with differently.This can result in changes in digestive patterns, cramping,loose stools,constipation etc.while switching back and forth.

Depends on situation: Some folks prefer the bovine protein as more human like & there is some question whether the soy lives up to its quality. That said, most kids would never have any appreciable difference in growth/development either way.The exception comes if a kid is intolerant to one. If so, the other product or a specialty formula like alumentum would be less likely to cause GI symptoms. ...Read more

Hello. Is vanilla flavoring the same as vanilla butternut flavoring? It has vanilla flavoring listed on the ingredients label. Thanks
This sounds like a: question for the Food Network site, not HealthTap! Certainly vanilla flavoring questions are beyond my medical expertise. Good luck! PS: I understand there may be some are much more likely to get the correct answer from another source:) ...Read more
Is vaping with 0mg nicotine safe while pregnant (To help ease the habit)? The ingredients are: water, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin,& flavoring
Not recomended: inhaling aerosolized chemicals isnt best for you or for the baby. Vaping is a new product in the market and the effect on lungs/babies are still not fully understood. I would use this time to kick the habit to ensure that you give your baby the full potential to grow without interruptions by potential stressors like smoke ...Read more
Absolutely: Alimentum and nutramigen are the first two that are readily available that come to mind. They are a bit more expensive, but very easy to digest and no soy anything. They don't taste as good, so if the baby scoffs at eating them, can put one drop of vanilla in the entire bottle to flavor. ...Read more
Baby 3 weeks, What water safe to use with powder formula? Bottled Spring water vs bottled purified water w/ minerals & fluoride. Don't like using tap.
Distilled: Distilled water would be ideal at this stage. Fluoride is not necessary until the teeth start to erupt. 'Drinking water' is from a municipal source ( tap water), nursery water is often priced higher and not necessarily superior to Distilled. Spring water quality is variable is quality and consistency. ...Read more
Isit healthier to feed kids oatmeal everyday with guar gum or evaporated cane juice? Does all ecjuice contain sucralose or has to be listed ingredient
Oatmeal: Why put anything in the oatmeal? It is a great food by itself. Complex carbs, fiber, some protein. The guar just adds extra fiber, and the juice is a sweetener. If you need a sweetener for taste, that is your choice, and it should not matter whether it is fruit juice, sugar, honey, etc. I would avoid artificial sweeteners in kids. The calories from a little honey is minimal. ...Read more

Nu-Greens liquid: It appears to be a concentrated blend of extracts of veggies, fruits, and sea veggies also. You can see ingredients from this page: http://nulifevitamins.Ca/nu-greens-1/liquid/profile-blueberry-burst.Html as long as the spirulina is not contaminated with heavy metals and you don't regard this as a substitute for healthy diet, and your doctor is fine with it (knowing your meds and you) okay. ...Read more
Are food based chewable gummy vitamins safer than artificially made vitamins? I am considering a food based calcium chewable gummy supplement.
See a Specialist: This is a complicated question that cannot be well answered in only 400 characters. The problems with formula may be allergy or lactose intolerance or several other things. You should have the baby tested for soy and milk allergy and you may need to try several formulas before you find one that is well tolerated. Enfamil AR thickens in the stomach so it is less likely to reflux back up the esop ...Read more
