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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
