Re: Has anyone heard of this?
I think toddler formula is mostly just a marketing gimmick to get parents to buy more product. People will see "toddler formula" on the label and assume that their babies need this special product. They'll think that if toddlers didn't need it, why would the company make it? Well, formula companies are not in the business for altruistic reasons. They are out there trying to make money, just like any other company, and sometimes making money means using marketing to create a "need" for something that isn't really necessary.
If you're not planning on replacing any nursing sessions with formula bottles, then I think you can safely pass on the toddler formula. In fact, I think that you should: I read recently that all formula cans contain BPA which can leach into the formula. Yuck!!! Leave the toddler formula on the shelf, and use the money you save to buy some organic whole milk!
