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

Either: So sorry you wish to stop breast feeding. Both companies make good product. Every baby responds differently to formulas so the best one is the one the baby tolerates the best.

I use similac total comfort for my baby from her birth , and now she is 4 months. Should I switch to similac now?

I use similac total comfort for my baby from her birth , and now she is 4 months. Should I switch to similac now?

Not necessary: If your infant is doing well on the "total comfort" similac formula-there is truly no need to switch unless you desire (ie; if more costly/difficult to find). Nutrition is adequate and as you embark on solid foods now or in 1 to 2 months, you will find that formula will slowly decrease and become complementary to your infant's future diet of solids and fluids. ...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

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?

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 other medical problems that need immediate attention that can cause this. I suggest you call your pediatrician to get this sorted out. ...Read more
