  • I wouldn't do it, only because I just tried that with my almost 1 year old and it gave her diahrreah (sp?) and it hurt her tummy.!! Call local shelters, and baby places like birthright, they will help you out!

  • i have and alot of posts say that moms do that when they are switching they babies to milk. but i have a 3 year old and i never did that. i just need to do something or im going to run out. i have no idea what im going to do. i dont get paid for another week and wic only gives me so many cans each month, im soo stressed right now.

  • Call your pediatrician's office and see if they can give you some sample cans. They often get stuff for babies from the companies, and what else are they there for.

  • Walmart formula cheaply priced. Can you afford a can of that? I believe it's only like $12 instead of $25.

  • i wouldnt mix the formula with the mild. BUT you could at that age use cereal in warm apple juice. i know its not the same but it does provide nutrients. and as a last resort you could use watered down milk. im sorry your going thru this. also dont give baby full dose apple juice maybe half juice half water.

  • You can but i wouldnt.....not that young. I had to mix formula and milk when i was trying to get DS to drink milk because he didnt like the taste....but that wasnt very long and i wouldnt recomend it when they are that young
