Yes I have already changed my LO over he is now 6 months and I changed him over 3 weeks ago because I started weaning him at 4 1/2 months.
He has had no problems with the change it hasnt given his constipation or digestion problems if anything its better because its thicker more substantial milk and it works will with his food routine. Im sure you will have no problems.
Good Luck x

My baby had severe colic and had also constipation and lots of gas. I tried a bunch of remedies but what worked for us was Babies magic tea.

Ya it is, eapecially at this age...I call it the age of constipation! But it is worth it! Talk to your doctor maybe that will make you feel my comfortable..and maybe do it gradulally....I think since this will be the first time changeing it, he might be fine! We changed like 3 times, the only thing that happened was ha had irregular BMs. However we just recently changed to the genaric brand and he got constipated but that could be either from the formula switch or the solid foods we just introduced him to!
Good luck!

hey our son was on nutramigin for colic. When he was a litlte over 3 mths we switched back to regular and he did great...he had grown out of his colic!! switching could cause abnormal bms but i would bet ur lo has grown out of his colic as well! ,
