Formula feeding Moms~Is anyone using Similac formula since the recall?

I breastfed for 3 months, but I'm having issues now, so I'm switching to formula. If you don't use Similac, what brand do you use?

  • I just ues the Similac liquid now, I dont want to switch becausde my son isnt having any problems at all with Similac. He never spits up, has gas, or gets constipated. I think that if I switch there is a good chance he will have one of those problems.

  • I still use silmilac its the only brand that my daughter can keep down, I tried sams club formula when similac was first recalled but she would throw up after every feeding

  • I use similac because WIC pays for it. My baby is a little gassy, but it's cleared to be okay now.

  • We use store brand.  That's what we've used for our last 3 kids.  It's just as good as the name brand.

  • We ended up switching to Enfamil, but really only because we couldn't find the really big canisters of the powered formula. The little one seems to be doing better on it, less gassy.
