I've been using Gerber Good Start Gentle for my five week old, but forgot to get more at the store today. I have Similac on hand that someone had given me not knowing I use Gerber. What do I do?

Use it.  It's not going to hurt the baby.

Honestly i wouldnt use it. Switching formulas like that can mess with the baby. Why not call the Pedi and ask?

It's normally not good to switch them. It can cause upset tummy, gas & constipation.

As long as its milk based then you should be fine. That is the exact thing our pedi told us.

can you go to the store?  honestly it is not good for a baby to be switching back and forth. It can cause stomach problems and make the baby very gassy
