What amount similac advance makes how many bottles?

What amount similac advance makes how many bottles?

Formula: There are several size containers, that powder comes in. The regular size, 12.5-9oz can makes 92-4oz, which makes just over 11, 8oz bottles. This is making the formula, as directed. The other form is concentrate. These are 13oz cans, that are diluted with 13oz of water, to give 26oz, or just over 3, 8oz bottles. Ready to feed is the other form, which is self explanatory.

Is there a big difference between similac sensitive & similac advance formula, would it cause problems to use one up then switch to the other?

Is there a big difference between similac sensitive & similac advance formula,  would it cause problems to use one up then switch to the other?

Maybe,maybe not : Both formulas have the same protein and components except for the type of sugar. Iff your kid is on the sensitive, a switch to the regular may cause spit up or other issues.If on the regular, using the sensitive would probably not create any issues. Some vendors will trade out the product if you ask.

If i mix a scoop of similac advance formula and a scoop of similac sensitivity formula and feed it to my baby, what effect will it have on him?

If i mix a scoop of similac advance formula and a scoop of  similac sensitivity formula and feed it to my baby, what effect will it have on him?

Not a problem: The difference between the two formulas are that one has lactose as the sugar source and the other does not. Also, the "curds and whey" ratio is a bit different. Otherwise, they are both cow's milk based formulas with the same fat contents. So if your baby is sensitive or intolerant of lactose, he might get a bit gassy drinking the lactose containing formula. But otherwise, no problem at all.

Why when i give my newborn similac advance he brings back up all?

Formula intolerance: You did not specify how many days/weeks old your newborn is. Aside from him not tolerating the formula, he maybe just taking too much formula per feeding. Other common causes are acid reflux, pyloric stenosis, urinary tract infection in girls, etc. If the vomiting persists, bring him to his pediatrician.

Why when i give my newborn similac advance he brings back up all immediately?

Why when i give my newborn similac advance he brings back up all immediately?

It Depends: The most common cause of spitting up in newborns is over feeding. Make sure you are not giving him too much, which can easily happen if you give your baby formula. The next most common cause is reflux or the baby maybe coming down with an illness. There are also other medical problems that need immediate attention that can cause this. I suggest you call your pediatrician to get this sorted out.

My baby's body is producing to much salt and sugar, is there a lot of difference between similac advance and total comfort ?

My baby's body is producing to much salt and sugar, is there a lot of difference between similac advance and total comfort ?

Metabolic disorders: Babies who have metabolic disorders and have imbalances of electrolytes and glucose require highly specialized formulas as prescribed by a pediatric specialist (genetics, gastroenterology, neonatology or endocrinology). It is dangerous to use formulas other than those recommended specifically for your babies medical problem. Similac Advance and Total Comfort are likely inappropriate.

My baby is 4 weeks old and is both bottle and breastfed. Sometimes when i fed him the similac advance formular he brings it right back up?

Reflux is normal: Reflux is the term used for spitting up. All babies will reflux to some extent and this is normal. Babies will reflux formula more than breast milk, which is more easily digested. As long as the infant is otherwise feeding well, appears satisfied afterwards, and is wetting several diapers a day, there is no concern. If the reflux is excessive, forceful, or green-tinged, see your pediatrician.

Is it possible for a baby to do well on similac advanced and at 7 weeks develop an allergy? Will he grow out of it? Could it be something else?

Is it possible for a baby to do well on similac advanced and at 7 weeks develop an allergy? Will he grow out of it? Could it be something else?

Rare but possible: A kid with true milk allergy will have it long term. Most do not. Many on a lactose based milk formula can develop transient lactose intolerance with routine stomach viruses and benefit from lactose free formula for a week or so until it self heals.Many also have imbalance of gut germs and benefit from gogert or other product to realign their digestion.

My baby has constipation problem. Which one formula milk is good, celia expert or similac advance or ronalac?

My baby has constipation problem. Which one formula milk is good, celia expert or similac advance or ronalac?

Partially hydrolysed: It seems ronalac is a partially pre-digested formula and there is an 'ac' or anticonstipation version with prebiotics. Check with your doctor if this is suitable for your baby to try.

I have been breastfeeding for 4 months and I am drying up. Do u recommend sam's club formula-off brand of similac advance?

I have been breastfeeding for 4 months and I am drying up. Do u recommend sam's club formula-off brand of similac advance?

Do what you must: Most formulas by that age will provide adequate nutritional support & all have pros & cons. If you have started one & baby seems to process it well, stick with it. Formulas are not interchangeable. If you examine the blends closely there are subtle differences, & babies gut may do well on one & poorly oon a very similar product.

My son is 3 months n he is still breastfeeding he is not getting enough milk i tried similac advance but he just want take it what can I do?

Feeding: You can enhance your breast milk by pumping and increasing your fluid intake. If you want to give the formula, similac is a good option, sometimes the children don't like the taste, try it first thing in the morn, when the baby is really hungry.

Does formula (similac advance) make babies fat or chubby? Do all babies go through that chubby phase? At my son 1month check up he weigh 10pounds

Does formula (similac advance) make  babies fat or chubby? Do all babies go through that chubby phase? At my son 1month check up he weigh 10pounds

No: It is not the formula but maybe the amount he is being fed. Review his intake with your doctor. Most babies double their birth weight between 2-3 months. All the best.

1month baby no health issues. i was giving emfamil but don't have money to buy more formula. people gave me similac advance will it affect my baby?

Should be fine: Formulas are not interchangeable like paper clips.There are subtle differences in the digestibility from kid to kid, but these two are very similar & your baby can thrive on either.

My 1 yr old is transitioning from similac advanced to organic whole milk. Rt now doing 1/3 milk, 2/3 form. He has gone from 1 bm per day to 3 or 4....

General diet change: The amount of fiber dictates a lot about the amount of stool you produce. The transition in his formula/milk intake is so minimal at this point with regard to amount of fiber, that i really doubt it has any bearing on how much stool production there is. More likely other changes in his diet to eating more fruits, veggies, grains and dietary fiber than an infant diet has led to the changes in poops.

Is similac advance baby formula harsh on babies stomach?

Is similac advance baby formula harsh on babies stomach?

not for most: As one of the most successful formulas today this could not be if it were harsh on babies stomach.There are numerous reasons a baby may not tolerate a specific formula, and these are specific to the child.

What can I do for my 1 month old thats hard to make a bowl movement hes formula fed he eat similac advance 4 to 6 onces every feeding please help me?

Constipation: Babies at this age have variable 'poop' pattern. Anywhere from 15 times a day to every 5 th day is normal as long as baby has soft abdomen, is not fussy and is eating right. Apple prune juice concentrate helps!

Can similac advance infant formula with iron make a newborn constipated?

Not specifically: This is an old myth that is perpetuated year to year. Iron given at therapeutic levels can cause constipation, but studies find no correlation with the level in formula. Infants may process one brand of formula slower or faster than another and any delay in emptying will lead to constipation.
