Hello,

I have a 6 month old who I used to breast feed, but after going back to work my supply decreased substantially.

It is OK to try multiple brands of formulas as long as you as staying with the same type of formula. If you were exclusively breastfeeding then, most of the time, you should be choosing a cow’s milk-based, iron fortified formula. Those are the ones that are designed to mimic breast milk, the “gold standard.”
