If you are a parent, I am sure you are aware of how expensive it is to raise a child. When my daughter was born, she was allergic to milk. Since she was in ICU for 5 weeks after her birth, she didn’t like my wife’s milk either. Therefore, we had to put her on formula. However, most of the formulas she was allergic to as well. She could only drink special formula that was non-allergenic. That happened to be the most expensive formula in the smallest container. As you might well know, her formula cost us over $100 a month. Leading store brand formulas can cost 50% less than national brands. You can purchase these formulas at many places such as Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club and Target. There is a big reason why these formulas are less expensive, and that is because they don’t give out free samples to hospitals. You might want to try Walmart brand Parent's Choice Infant Formula. You also might want to try the infant formula calculator at the Parent’s Choice website. You can use this calculator to select a store brand and a national brand to calculate how much you could be saving a month. It is a great tool to use to try and bring down the cost of formula.
