You should be okay, the only variation is that they revised the formula to make it as close to breastmilk as they can get.  A couple bottles shouldn't hurt her.  Go when you can though to get her back to her regular formula.

  She should be fine since both are similac advanced.   I doubt the difference is huge between the two. Look at both cans and compare the ingrediants I bet they are almost the same.  Since it's probably only for a few bottles I wouldn't worry about it.

No big thing.  I use the Similac advance with Early shield daily, but I have travel packs of regular similac advance for when we are out and about.  Mind you, though, that I don't switch back and forth every day.  Anyhow...she has never had a bad effect from one or two bottles of regular advance formula.

i dont know if this will help, but i work in a grocery store and i was looking at the new similac advanced w/ early shield. i'm pretty sure it's the same thing. from what i understand, the early shield is just to help the immune system more. you shouldn't have any problems from just a few bottles. if you are that worried about switching for one night you can always call the doctor.
