  • Go right to the new one, but keep in mind that it takes about a week for the old formula to be completely out of the system and another week before you can really judge the new formula's affect on the baby.

    We had good luck with actually helped my son go! LOL

  • I would advice to go half and half. not shock their system. When I introduced a new formula I did that. I actually mixed 4 cups formula at a time and day by day adjusted by one scoop. But that was when my son was 5 months. But as ticcledblue said, remember it takes a week or 2 even to see full effects of a new formula.

  • I had to switch my son also and the doctor recommended half and half until thebold formula was gone. Good luck
