Baby Formula - Store Brands vs. The National Brands

Do you breastfeed or do you use baby formula? There are so many choices that we face as parents when it comes to our baby and choosing is not always easy! The best we can hope for is to be well informed when we make our choice!

WIC is confusing enough but now they are introducing new food packages that are reducing the amount of formula that a family can receive for their new little one and that can put a strain on an already tight budget, especially in today's economy! The American government is encouraging new mothers to save money by breastfeeding, which, is the best nutritional option for an infant and it can save big money over the course of a year! The savings is estimated at around $2000 in savings during the first year of your baby's life!

I breastfed my little Diva exclusively for the first year of her life! There was no formula for her but had I needed that option I would have looked into the price of the national brands versus the store brands! Had I done this homework, I would have found that there really is no generic brand of formula here in the States! All baby formula is subject to the same strict guidelines that are in place to govern manufacturing and ingredients as directed by the Infant Formula Act! Therefore, the infant formula sold as store brands are a great nutritional supplement, for the more expensive national brands which can save you money over the course of your little one's first year and they also meet FDA guidelines for nutrition!! What more could you ask for? Great nutrition for your baby and great savings for your bottom line!!
