Now that I have 2 children and I have been through the baby stage twice I feel like I am experienced and know quite a bit. But it definitely wasn’t like that in the beginning. I remember sitting in my house holding my newborn son and thinking “I know nothing, what am I going to do?”. So naturally I had to turn to people who would know the answers like my son’s pediatrician, my mom and friends who had babies. It turns out I’m not alone in this.
“A new survey of pediatricians (conducted by SERMO*, the largest online network exclusively for physicians, in conjunction with Perrigo Nutritionals) looked at the most common questions new moms will ask, and one concern rose to the top: 52 percent of pediatricians say the number one topic of questions from new moms is about infant feeding.”
That completely makes sense to me because that was my number one concern as well and the thing I had the most questions about. When I was no longer able to breastfeed my son I struggled with knowing which formula was best for him. I was under the impression that only the well known name brands were good for baby and the store brands were a lesser quality. I was very wrong and wasted a lot of money because of it.
“What most moms don’t know is that the FDA strictly regulates infant formula to keep little ones safe, so store brand infant formulas, like Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up and Up, are nutritionally comparable to national brands like Enfamil® and Similac® and meet FDA standards. Most importantly, pediatricians agree! According to the “Pulse of Pediatricians” survey, 71 percent of pediatricians believe all infant formulas are basically the same; the brand doesn’t matter. Parents can feel good about using store brand formula and they can even save up to $600 per year; without compromising quality!”
The second time around (with my daughter) I was glad to learn the truth about store brand formula and I could finally spend a lot less each month without missing out on giving my daughter the nutrition she needed. After nursing was done I switched to store brand formula with her and she was a very happy and healthy baby. She liked it so much I even continued to use it for her second year of life in her night time bottles.
All of these stores carry their own Store Brand Formulas.
