From what the doctor has told me, there's no real benefit either way, it's just personal choice. So I think it's up to you!
I'm not sure about Canada, but all of our Stage 2 formulas down here start at 9 months and up.

I use Similac Go and Grow (Stage 2 9-24mths), at first he had diarrhea but now he is fine.

Diarrhea is normal when changing to milk based formula.

I have not used a Second Stage yet, but I have asked my pediatrician about it. I was concerned about her switching to regular cows milk.

She said there is no real benefit of switching. You baby will get all the nutrients necessary from either formula. She did recommend it as a good transition for babies with sensitive tummies.

That's a good point.
