When is it okay to switch formulas?

Around 3-4 months old, we had switched my son, who is now seven months old, to Similac for spit up after being advised to by the doctor due to excessive spitting up. He is now currently 7 1/2 months old. When would be an appropriate time to switch him back to the Similac pro advanced? And how should I go about switching him back? Thanks so much!

If you are doing say 8oz do 6oz of the spit of formula and the 2oz of pro advanced for a couple days to see how he tolerates and make sure he is still pooping. Then after a couple more days do 4oz of each and repeat

Ask your pedi about it

Talk to your childs doctor. But there’s no need to switch back. Swapping through formulas isn’t easy on their stomach. Only switch if absolutely necessary.

Yes… I’ve had 5 on the 6th and the babies are resilient… If you have specific health concerns then talk to pediatrician… But if it just cuz the store is out … The main ingredients are the same… NBD

Mix it. I’m currently in the process of switching my 2mo from NeoSure to Sensitive. I make a pitcher a day, adding 1 more scoop of sensitive and 1 less of NeoSure until it’s 100% sensitive. I’ve done that with all my children when switching so it’s not so hard on their little tummies. And my pediatrician approved that method

You should ask your baby’s Dr!!! Theyll have better answers than FB!!!

It isn’t necessary to switch again, talk to your pediatrician but unless baby is all of a sudden not tolerating the formula. Baby is getting all necessary nutrients from the current formula they are on.

I would wait until the doctor says its ok if he has acid reflux keep on the dollar

I never switched my kids. Once they are put on a formula I keep them on the formula if they are able to take the formula. I see no point on switching it if baby is doing good.

Why would you switch back?

What about enfamil neuropro sensitive? It has the extra good ingredients and it’s for spit up.

If the formula you have him on is working there is no reason to switch him. Consult the pediatrician if you have questions about it. Switching him could bring issues up again.

Why switch back, if he’s doing good?

Why are you switching it again?

Just switch it. We switched a ton to find the right one.
