As much as I had hope to breastfeed till a year, things don't always work they way we want them too. When I had to make the decision on which formula to give Blake, I remembered back to the formula I fed Chase, Similac Advanced. The only reason I picked that, is because it is the formula that I had fed to a few kids that I nannied, so I figured it was 'good.'
This time around, I did some research and found out that both name brands and store brand formulas have the same ingredients in them. The only difference is the price. To tell you the truth...about 1/2 the price.
I choose Costoc's Kirkland brand which is less than 1/2 the price of the Similac Advanced or Enfamil brand.
I was contacted by Perrigo Nutritionals to do a review on their store brand formula and I was more than happy to.
I figure most moms think that the store brand formula doesn't have as much 'good stuff' in as like the name brand stuff or that their baby won't be as smart if they don't give them the name brand formula.
