Is similac good formula and what is your favorite formula and why?

I stated my son on enfamil nursies in the hospital and then breast fed him until 7 week. I switched to enfamil but he didn't pass stools right and then i switched to parents choice. I love it. But now i must put him on similac for wic reasons. Is that ok?

  • ALL OF MINE USED SIMILAC AS LONG AS THEY HAVE NO DIGESTION ISSUES IT'S GREAT . WIC IS FABULOUS! ALSO IF THEY GET CONSTIPATED TRY A LITTLE WHITE KAYRO SYRUP IN IT .

  • Do not use karo syrup, it says right on their website to not use it, there is a risk of botulism. i can't tell you how many times I answer this question.

  • I use the Similac Sensitive. Gauge had a lot of problems poopin and he would spit up everything else. I was in the same boat as you are. Similac and Enfamil are the most enterchangable formulas made. Try baby apple juice mixed with water if your baby still cant go.
