We use Baby's Only Organic

We were using Earth's Best but switched because of the way the DHA/ARA was processed. We tried Simulac Organic but it made Isabella really constipated.

We also have a stash of the simulac in the ready to go bottles.

Our magic formula mixture [due to LO's reflux] is:

1/2 Parent's Choice Lower Iron powdered formula
1/2 Alimentum RTF

DS was put on Similac in the hospital & was projectile vomiting. Plus it stained everything in site. We've tried several formulas for his reflux, but the ones that worked best were what's mentioned above & Parent's Choice Gentle. I found Enfamil Gentlease to be too frothy & gas inducing.

We were on Similac Advance since the hospital till about 3 months old. We switched to Similac Iron Fortified (I had done some reading about the way DHA/ARA is processed, and decided I didn't want to use it). Both the Similac formulas caused my son to scream in pain from tummy aches (I assume), he had diarrhea, and lots of other symtptoms. I switched to Goodstart Iron Fortified, and there has been NO problems since. He hasn't screamed in pain AT ALL! I am VERY happy with the switch.

***If you have a baby that seems colicy, or has symptoms like it, do some research on the artificial DHA/ARA in formula, and see what you think. Research has said that these acids added to formulas are WAY overprocessed, and nothing like the acids in breastmilk, and is seeming to cause these symptoms in babies. I believe this made a difference in my son, by taking him off the formulas that have DHA/ARA in them.***
