how long to do you give a formula a chance before switching


Holly - posted on 12/12/2012




what is the reason for wanting to switch? when you start a new formula you have to GRADUALLY change it, you have to slowly add it in with the old formula, keeping the water/formula ratio the same.... so you would if you were to give a 9oz bottle it would be 1/2scoop new stuff 2 1/2 scoop old stuff, for a few days - week, then a whole scoop new stuff and 2 scoops old for a few days - a week, then 1 1/2 scoops new and 1 1/2 scoops old for a few days -a week..... and so on and so on... never just switch right away... it may upset the baby's stomach or the baby might not take it at all.
