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

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

My two month old baby is always uncomfortable every time feeding him similac powder formula i always notice not good in his tummy and green bm please hep?

Feeding issue? : Some children are cow's milk intolerant, because of course if you were meant to drink cow's milk you'd be born a cow. Gassiness, bloating, and stool changes are possible. Allergy to milk is also possible though less likely. Reflux is also less likely. Discuss this with your peds at your next well check, and see what issue needs to be addressed. ...Read more

Is target Up&Up formula that's made to be similar to similac just as good as actual Similac? If so, is it ok to alternate between the two?

Is target Up&Up formula that's made to be similar to similac just as good as actual Similac? If so, is it ok to alternate between the two?

Can't tell: In the US, name-brand formulas and generic formulas are all considered fine to drink. Individual babies may have specific preferences due to tummy issues or cow milk protein allergies. There is no way to tell if one formula is "as good" as another, or better, or worse. There is no standard definition of "as good", and there are rarely any side-by-side comparison studies (no Coke vs. Pepsi tests). ...Read more

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

I have been feeding my daughter ready made similac at room temp for over a week after opening. Can she get sick from this?

I have been feeding my daughter ready made similac at room temp for over a week after opening. Can she get sick from this?

No: I take it that you are simply opening a can and transfer it to a bottle and feeding it. I don't see anything wrong with it, if the baby is drinking well. Warming the milk is preferable for a young newborn baby because it simulates temperature of breast milk, but certainly it does not sterilize the milk. ...Read more

My 2 months old son have being drink similac soy for a month now and he is always bringing up alittle after every bottle. Can u explain?

Reflux: spitting up do to reflux is normal if he is growing in height and weight. The valve at the end of the esophagus and beginning of the stomach isn't mature and doesn't exert enough pressure at this age to prevent regurgitation of formula. It will develop over time as he ages. Many infants outgrow reflux when they are able to stand- Keeping upright after feeds may help. ...Read more

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
