I don't really think one is "better" than the other; it will really be up to you (cost) and your baby. I've heard of MANY babies who seem to be sensitive and can only take a certain kind or brand. So while some mom's would have preferred one, the baby preferred another altogether! There are so many different kinds out there now! We were lucky in that my babies were not sensitive that way. We used Similac Advanced (the blue label) for our 1st. I different versions of Similac for our 2nd b/c we had a bunch of samples. But when I had to start buying it and he was no longer breastfeeding, we started buying the Target-brand that said "compare to Similac Advanced" in the big containers because it was a lot more cost effective. And we never had any issues with.

I don't think either is better nutritionally but you have to find what works for you. I nursed my children until 13 months, 18 months, and 24 months respectively so we never used formula. But I think because of regulations, they all have to meet certain nutritional requirements. Beyond that, you have to figure out which your baby tolerates best.
