but it's more an issue if you're going back and forth all day long. But over the course of a canister, I imagine you'll be fine.
The ingredients of enfamil premium and similac with iron are almost exactly the same. The main ingredients are exactly the same, the less than 2% ingredients are only slightly different. The amount of nutrition is the same as well, i.e. the vitamins and minerals are all within a few points of each other, they have to be since they are FDA regulated.

Obviously there is a difference between enfamil premium and say similac soy....

Again, if the child has no allergies/tummy problems then switching between the same type of formulas is not an issue. I wouldn't switch between soy one week and regular another.
