Day 7 - Switching Baby Formula

Today's Tip - It's OK to switch brands of baby formula, not type

In the months leading up to the birth of your first baby, you probably received a dearth of formula samples and coupons. The hospital probably started him on one, and even if you're breastfeeding, you'll probably want to supplement breast milk with formula. Does it mean you have to stick to one brand and throw out all the other freebies you've gotten?

The answer is no. As long as the formula type (milk-based, iron fortified or soy) stays the same, you should be able to switch freely between Enfamil or Similac as long as your baby doesn't mind switching tastes. If you've got your young one on a special diet, always check with your pediatrician before you make any changes to their diet.
