By federal law, all formula sold in the US must follow the same nutritional guidelines. Sometimes the companies add extra fiber, or vitamins, or other benign, beneficial additives to try to set them apart from each other. Nutritionally all are similar/identical thereby you can't really see any differences on the can label. You can safely feed your newborn the "regular" milk based formula rather than the newborn formula. Sometimes one brand agrees more with the baby so if after a few days your baby experiences more gas than usual or other complaints, you could try a different brand of formula. The only thing to remember is that you follow the instructions for ratio of water to formula precisely. We fed our DD generic formula bought in bulk at Sams and we had no issues whatsoever.
