Here are some things to consider when switching formulas:
- You don't have to introduce the new formula gradually by either alternating or combining it with the old formula-you can switch over to the new formula right away.
- Mixing formulas is not recommended, because if your baby does not do well on a feeding, you won't be able to tell which formula or ingredient is causing the problem. Also, the formulas may not mix well.
- Make sure you give your baby enough time to try the new formula, usually 3 to 5 days. Some babies will adjust right away. Others may have slight changes in stool pattern, gas, and/or spit-ting up until they become accustomed to the new formula. If you have questions or concerns, check with your baby's doctor.
