Ive gotten all these free samples of baby formula in the mail and I was wondering if its good to jump from one formula to the next. I got 3 different kinds of formula. Doesnt changing formula all the time mess with the babies digestive system or whatever?

Yea, you should stick with one kind if your going to feed your baby formula, but she might not react good to one or another, so keep a few on hand just incase you need to switch her, i'd start off with the one that has higher iron i think that's what they told me the baby needed first.

I asked the same question when my first child was born. The answer I got was that I should try to stick with one type of formula. This includes different types of formula even though itis the same brand. I was also told that switching formulas, if we had to, would not hurt the baby, but like you say, would just irritate the baby's digestive system temporarily but they would eventually get used to it.
