similiac go and grow

so my boyfriend baught me some formula yester day for our 6 month old and i guess he was not paying attention and accidently baught the Similac go and grow for 9 to 24 months, instead of the regular infant similac early sheild. she has been eating this since last night and i noticed she had trouble pooping today and after her nap she SCREAMED for a good 10 minutes for no reason. i did everything and she cried until she settled herself down. thats when i looked at her formula and realised my bf picked up the wrong one! so i was wondering, do you think i should stop giving her this type of formula? is it bad to give to younger babies? i would really hate to go out and buy another one, we are money tight and barely can buy a container a week. but does anyone else have experience with this and could tell me about this go and grow?

You shouldn't give it to her, when my DD was little I accidently bought that kind and I returned it because the one you have has more iron and more vitamins then the reg. formula.  A baby can get iron poisining if they get too much.  Do they have WIC (women, infant, children) where you live?  If not, it's this program that supplies formula, baby cereal, and baby food, regular food for moms until the baby is I want to say 6 months, and after the baby is a yr you get reg. food.  If they don't have WIC they may have something that goes by another name.  If you can get on something like that I highly recomend it because as your baby gets older formula will get really expensive.  I got on WIC when my dd was a few months old and I wish I had gotten it while I was preg.   If I were you I would save the formula you got until she's 9 months and go buy another can.

I would say write the can ingredients and I can compare them to the regular similac formula, but there are just so many ingrediants on them.
