  • My kids DR always told me the best way to switch is to buy another brand and mix them for a few days and gradually move off of the similac to the new brand. I will give you some other advice, the walmart brand of soy formula is great thats what all 4 of my kids used. Its easy on the stomach and not much prob in switching

  • You can switch but I would gradually change brands. Wean her off of the other kind while switching.

  • Is there a reason for your switching? If just switching for personal reason, it is okay just allow several weeks for baby to adjust and be prepared for some constipation which will subside once baby has adjusted to new formula.
