My baby is 8mth old, can I mix two different brand of formula to feed him? 2 scoop of brand a and 3 scoop of brand b and mix together?

Possibly: Formulas are not interchangeable like paperclips. You wouldn't mix your angel food cake mix with pound cake mix & expect the finished product to be recognizable. The mixture may interfere with the nutrient balance of each & prevent your infant from having a balanced meal. This might be ok, but i'd mix & feed separately if you need to use both. ...Read more

I giv my baby 2 scoops of generic enfamil infant mixed with1 scoop of name brand enfamil AR . generic scoop looks bigger than than the other, this ok?

Scoop size: The scoops may appear to be of different dimension to your eyes. Why don't you look to see if there is a label impressed into the scoop such as 1 tsp or 1 tbsp. Check the side of the cans of formula. It may be the case that they manufactured it such that they want you to use 2 scoops of the generic formula to reconstitute the liquid formula. They will give the instructions on the side of the can. ...Read more
