will definitely use with next baby

This was the only formula my daughter would use. First formula she used in the hospital after she was born so we stuck with it. No digestive issues. No spit up. She was a tiny baby and it helped her grow better than expected! Will definitely use similac for any future babies!

Best for sensitive tummies

5

I started my son on breast milk and sadly I didn't produce enough milk. We tried a different formula and he would throw up every time we fed him. We then tried the similac advance formula and it put weight on him that he had lost from my inability to produce enough breast milk and it was the first formula we used that he didn't throw up. He is now 9 months old and we are still using similac advance. We swear by this formula. I have 2 kids and both of my kids ended up using similac advance and I will always highly recommend this formula. My daughter would eat anything you put in front of her with no issues, my son had a sensitive tummy and both did great with similac advance. So we love similac in our house. And because of my inability to produce enough breast milk for my kids, they still got their vitamins and minerals with the similac.

Similac is a Family Tradition

5

Similac Baby Formula has been used in my family for three generations, and we recently started on our fourth. It rates right up there with its competition, yet we have remained loyal to Similac because of its price and nutritional value. Easily Digested Similac breaks down into nutrients that are easily digested by babies. This is the main reason I chose this particular formula, I wanted my children to be healthy and for everything in their life to be easy for them. Ease of Preparation Making bottles could not be easier. Even a tired mother can prepare a bottle at 3 a.m. The scoop that is provided in the can is a perfect measurement for the number of ounces you plan to prepare for your baby. The process of shaking the bottle until the water and formula are well mixed is convenient any time.

A favorite and trusted brand with my kids

5

Love love love this brand of formula. With my first child he has 2 months premature, he was on Enfamil high calorie for a big chunk of his infant year. He would sometimes spit up a whole bottle at a time. When I got the ok to take him off we went to similac advance and he took it very well. His stomach was digesting it easier and he was no longer spitting up whole bottles. With my newest daughter she was breastfed so when she was put on formula we tried gerber good start and Enfamil. She would not drink either and it was miserable. When I tried similac advance she didn't even fuss about it. She loves it. It's my number one brand and I highly recommend It is easier for the babies to digest because it is more mild on their stomachs and less harsh. it. Easily Digested Both of my kids digested Similac advance better than any other brand we have tried. It is so much more mild and gentle on their little tummies. Ease of Preparation It is so easy to prepare my 4yr old boy can do it. The powder dissolves very easily whether it is cold water, room temp, or warm.

Loved it

We loved this formula for my son. Had no issues with gas or him spitting up. It was really easy to mix (was able to do it in the dark at night with no problems). Will definitely use this product again when we have another child. Ease of Preparation Was able to mix easily in the dark. Scoop was easy to locate and use.

Higher Priced, But Worth It

4

Similac is probably the most well-known and often-used baby formula, and we have seen why it is so popular. It is easy on our babies stomachs, and it provides good nutrition for their growth and development. Although it costs more than off-brands, it can be worth the extra money. Easily Digested Our children have never had many digestion issues with this formula. Ease of Preparation We simply mix the formula powder into a bottle with water and shake it. The type of bottle that we use helps prevent the baby from swallowing any air bubbles, so it is extremely easy and convenient to use. Another feature that I like about this particular container is that it has a clip in the lid to hold the scoop. Often the scoop gets buried in the formula in shipment and is hard to get out. But since this one has a clip in the lid, the scoop stays secured at the top, making the beginning use of the container very easy and convenient.

Too harsh on little tummies

2

While Similac Advanced is the first thing the hospital gives you to feed your baby, it is not always the best choice. All three times I gave birth the hospital immediately pushed Similac on us. I breastfed my first child but the doctors insisted I supplement her with Similac because I was not producing enough milk. I admit my milk was not enough for her, but the Similac caused all sorts of issues and she ended up being admitted to the NICU with a milk protein allergy, as well as a few other issues. Similac Advanced was just too harsh for all three of my babies and we do not have any kind of milk protein allergies in the family, nor is anyone lactose intolerant. This formula is just too harsh on their little tummies. While it is very easy to prepare, just scoop the powder and add water, it just wasn't right for my children. I will say that Similac is very good about sending coupons in the mail but their formula is still entirely too expensive compares to the store brand. Overall, this may work for some, but was not the right formula for us. Easily Digested My babies could not tolerate this formula. Ease of Preparation Very easy to prepare.

WIC approved, best for baby formula on the market.

5

When I went on WIC vouchers when my son was born, they recommended this formula for him, saying it was best for growing babies. I bought them each week, and fed them to my son daily. He loved it. Similac Advance Baby Formula went down so smoothly and he never once spit it back up, like the other formulas they had us on before. It is easy to make, and easier to drink as it all goes down without clumping. And it has Early Shield to support your baby's immune system, brain, eyes, and bone growth. Similac Advance Baby Formula has DHA which is an important nutrient in the early stages of development. It's supposed to be as close to breast milk as it can be without actually being breast milk. Babies love it because it aids in their digestion and is so smooth and clump free. I was surprised when I saw how well he did with it, as my other two kids had been on Enfamil, but he had not reacted well to that at all. Similac Advance Baby Formula is all I ever fed my son, till he was old enough for Milk. And for his whole first year, this was all he drank other than water at times. Easily Digested Similac Advance Baby Formula is so smooth and blends so well that my son never spit it up at all. And there were never any clumps or powdered bits left in his bottle, or stool. It never gave him any problems either. Ease of Preparation It's easy to make. Just scoop the allotted amount out into a bottle with the required amount of water, cap it and shake, and then serve to your baby.

Not good for gassy babies

3

I actually used and loved the Similac Sensitive. So, I love Similac, just not this particular formula. My little one had to be switched from the Similac Advance Formula while still in the hospital. He experienced acid reflux, terrible gas and constipation. Once he was switched to the Sensitive formula he was fine. Just to be sure, we actually tried the Advance Formula again after he was two months old. My little one experienced terrible gas. He cried and cried. He also had terrible constipation and spit up a lot. He never had issues with spit up, gas or constipation while on the Sensitive formula but with the Advance Formula he had all of these symptoms. We immediately switched him back to the Sensitive and his symptoms went away. It is definitely worth it to spend the extra money. He did well with the Similac Sensitive. I am not sure why the Advance formula gave him so many problems but I wouldn't recommend it for babies that have sensitive tummies.
