As many of you know, we welcomed a baby boy in July of 2011. He was primarily breast fed, as was our daughter as I think breast feeding, when possible is the best option. However, both times my milk was slow to come in, in part because I had C-Sections and also because I'm diabetic. Our milk tends to be slower to kick in. At the start of both of our baby's lives we had to rely on formula and I was very grateful to have options to fall back on.
Even as I was able to begin breast feeding my babies, both initially had difficulty maintaining their weight and were put on feeding schedules. We alternated breast and bottle feeding so that we could get a better idea of how much our infant was ingesting. I was not lucky enough to produce breast milk in excess. When we went on outings it was very helpful and convenient to be able to pack a bottle of formula for on the go feedings. My experience with both children has been that it's very important to have formula on hand, even with breast feeding.
store brand formulas are as nutritionally complete as national brands but can cost as much as 50% less! That savings can really add up over the course of a year, around $600!
Two examples of Perrigo Nutritionals store brand formula, which are sold under individual retailer brands, are Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up & Up. Both are pictured above and included in the gift pack. While Perrigo Nutritionals store brand formula may cost less, moms researching whether or not to switch will be happy to know, that it's one of only four companies recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for meeting the strict FDA requirements for safety, nutrition, and quality for infant formula-manufacturing in the United States.
Advance®) the gift pack will include these fun bottle feeding accessories: baby bottle drying rack, formula dispenser, and bottle brush. I especially like the brush, it's great for bottles and then sippy cups as your child grows.
