    Formula question...

    Advertisements
    Wow I sure ask a lot of questions. Zach was drinking the similac advance formula and was doing great. I went to target and got the off brand of that formiula and he got really constipated. Are the off brands different? I have a bunch of the similac advance bottles and want to use them but not if they are going to constipate him. He had no problem at all until I used the off brand formula for a few days. Should I try and see if he can drink these or just get rid of them?

    If it was working I'm not sure I would have switched formulas in the first place but if he is constipated on the store brand but not on the similac I personally would check with the Dr and then probably switch back. It takes a little while for their bodies to get used to a different formula so I wouldn't try different ones if you find one that works. If hes constipated the Dr can advise you on what steps to take to alleviate the pain and help him go.

    yes, there is a difference in brands. If you are going to switch, it is best to do it gradually. If he was doing well on the Similac, I would put him back on it, and then gradually change if you were wanting to change
