I don't think Similac will be on the shelves for a while so you don't really have a choice about trying something else. Just buy a small can if you're worried he won't like it. I also used only Similac for the past 10 months but my son is now drinking Enfamil and likes it just fine. There's also Gerber Goodstart and most stores have their own brand too, honestly I think they're all the same. I am grossed out that there is actual beetle larva in the formula, I really hope my son wasn't drinking that!

Get a prescription for breastmilk or ask a local breastfeeding club for donations. Our club, Cape Cod Breastfeeding Moms, set up one mom who couldn't nurse with enough donated milk to last at least another 7 months!

I sympathize with you and am wondering myself how bad it really is. I just bought $60 worth of the stuff at Costco last week. :( I got my some the Enfamil kind in the yellow container and that seemed to work fine. He is 9 months old.

There are a ton of formulas out there. I liked enfamil, but if your son doesn't like it try Target's brand formula or wal-marts.

Buy the liquid kind. My son is on it too and the liquid version is okay.
