It’s safe to mix and match infant formulas if you are following standard mixing instructions. It’s fine to make a bottle that is ½ formula from the blue can and ½ formula from the yellow one. Fine to serve Similac one week, Enfamil the next, Earth’s Best or Goodstart followed by Soy formula the following day. However, all this being said, I don't recommend to switch often.


One of my old school friend's baby had a terrible time on formula. First the switch to it from breastmilk was rough and he was gassy and fussy for days, and then her husband bought a different kind one day and the poor little boy's stomach was messed up again for days. I'm just glad nina seems adaptable! When I ran out of milk and had to give her formula, she didn't bat an eye. She doesn't mind Enfamil or Similac Advance, switching never bothered her except for Gerber.
