Have you changed formula since you have been supplementing? How did your baby take to it?

We have just changed to a hungrier baby formula because Sam is a VERY hungry baby!

I switched from Enfamil Gentlease to generic Target brand at about 9 mos. He didn't even notice. i've never heard of "hungry" formula. Is that the thick stuff with cereal in it? I was advised by Pedi those were the same as puting rice cereal in bottle, which she didn't advise. Can you just up the amt of oz's you give him?

No, hungrier baby formula is just a more satisfying formula for babies who never seem to be satisfied by normal formula. He was eating a ridiculous amount of regular formula so we switched to this one: Faq

He is getting on much better with this one and seems much happier! When he is less hungry we go back to the regular formula.

Yes, at first I was using alimentum because she was having problems with formula, but then she was still crabby anyway. We switched to Gerber Good Start Gentle Plus (I think that's what it is. It's the orange one.)

How has she been getting on since you switched? Is she more settled on the new formula?
