  • Not if it's the same brand. Switching brands might give them a little bit of stomach upset...but not always.

  • I switched right after we got home from the hospital with no problems at all :) as long as it's the same brand

  • The ready-to-feed is a lot thicker & richer. Some babies notice the difference and don't like it - I had one child that refused powdered formula, but one that threw up the liquid. Another took liquid at home and powder anywhere else and did fine. With the last one I used powder only.
