Just curious....I use Nestlé Goodstart. But I also have a couple cans of Similac powder formula (got as samples) that I would like to use up as well. It says it is "digest ease". I'm just wondering IF it is okay to give one brand, then give another??

Goodstart was a lot easier for my baby to digest. Similac and Enfamil caused her to be constipated and spit up more. Maybe you could mix 1 part similac to 2 parts goodstart?

Mixing it is a good idea. Some babies tolerate switching back and forth just fine, and others can't change at all. All you can do is try!

Sofia uses what ever I have a coupon for...just as long as it is Soy. She doesn't seem any different by switching brands..

I agree that it depends on the baby. I stuck to SMA the whole time with my son.
