Changing milk at 6 months

I'm currently using SMA first stage formula milk but I was wondering whether to change to the next stage when my little girl is 6 months? Did you do this?

My DH is getting excited as it's slightly cheaper!

    The follow on (I assume you are talking about stage 3 milk) has extra iron in it that they need from 6 months, as their birth iron stores have depleted. However, if they have a varied diet they don't necessarily need it as they can get the iron they need from food!

    I did change onto it however, as my personal theory was that until she was fully weaned how did I know she was getting enough iron? I decided to be safe rather than sorry!
