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

Yes and no: There are minor differences in these formulas which are designed to feed developmental needs for their stage of development, not their size. That said, I don't find that there is much difference in the product, but don't use size as the main reason for the change. ...Read more

Is similac total comfort a good formula for a baby with reflux and constipation? Which would you choose: similac total comfort or s26 gold ar?
Depends on concerns: Both formulas can be helpful with reflux but only similac total comfort helps with constipation.

Two week old daughter constant cry 4-5 hours nonstop; pedi said nothing wrong just gas. What should i do change formula? I use similac total comfort
Colic: the problem with babies who are colicky is that they tend to cry for a period of 3-4 hours at least 3-4 times per weeks. Colic can be treated with few methods, although not proven to be effective as documented in the literature. Try using probiotics. It helps to comfort the baby's stomach. Try massaging the baby's tummy. Also giving frequent baths. Change formula to spy formula might help. ...Read more
Is there anything that can really help with my baby's acid reflux? He is 4 months old. He has 2 or 3 vomits after a feed. Evern hours later and sometimes it come through hos nose aswell. He has been on Nan AR, Similac Total Comfort and Infacare.
Time!: Reflux in infants is very frustrating, but fortunately gets better when eating more solids than liquids. For now, keep feedings small and frequent & hold upright or at an incline after feedings. If your baby is not gaining or crying all of the time, then milk allergy needs to be considered and a trial of a soy formula or a hypoallergenic formula such a Alimentum, Nutramigen or Neocate. ...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?
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
