Okay so I am in need of formula and I have people wanting to send me some but its a different brand and kind then my son is used to, I am more than willing to take it and probably will, but will that mess up his little tummy? He's 8 months old weve had to try a few different formulas but between switching them he never had any problems such as upset stomach or spitting up or anything.

I'm pretty sure you're supposed to gradually change it..so, if you can..add on ounce at a time to his current formula?

Quoting Just Ames:" OK, I really wouldn't do this. Can you go to WIC and get help?"

I just hate to see parents struggle. I know things are hard for a lot of people right now and my DH spoils me and I much rather give it to someone who needs it then get another purse or shoes.
