Formula switching issues... Abend88 34 kids; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 899 posts

My daughter was on Enfamil newborn and had no issues. We switched to the Parent's Choice Newborn, and she seems to be spitting up more, and has more gas. I thought it was the same thing only cheaper. WTH?

It's never the same, just comparable. I used Parents Choice but she didn't start formula till after 6mo... Hope you can get things figured out. I know it can take a while for the body to accept the change, so maybe wait and see.... you don't want to keep changing that's for sure..

Enfamil is what we got in the hospital, so we bought a few bins...but I was planning on using Parent's Choice because it's so much cheaper. Now I'm hoping she gets used to it and we don't have to switch back.

I hope she gets used to it too, it's soooo much more affordable. I always bought it by the case on walmart.com and saved even MORE money! GL

I could never switch with LO, we had to use Similac her whole first year. When we tried Parent's Choice twice she got super fussy/gassy and pooped wayyy more than usual.
