Rylynn is on Similac advance and she has been spitting up like crazy. I have some samples of the similac isomil and I was thinking about trying that with her. Then thing is I have a whole container of Advance. Do you think it is okay to mix the two half and half?

Also do you think I should call my ped about switching her or just do? It seems like I call them all time.

My pediatrician recommends mixing the bottles first 75%old/25%new then 50/50 than 25%old/75%new when switching formulas because it is easier on the babies tummies. So, yes I would definitely say it is ok to mix them. I would start out with mostly the Advance for about 1 week then go 50/50 for the next week then 25% advance and 75% of the new formula for another week or until all the Advance is gone.
