Q.

Mixing formula brands same range

Hi

I would like to know if it is ok to mix NAN AR with Novalac AR in 1 feeding? For example 120ml water, 2 scoops NAN AR and 2 scoops Novalac AR? Baby not full with just Novalac AR per feeding, but since we started mixing it with NAN AR baby is more calm and full. Just the NAN AR is to thick and then baby struggles to drink. SO is it ok to keep baby on mixed formulas as per above? Different brands, same range?

Thx

I have not come across anyone doing this before, but after having a look at both formulas there does not seem to be a problem with your new idea.So go ahead.It would be a good idea to make sure that your baby is gaining weight regularly on this combination of formulas.
