I breastfed my son so I never had to deal with the cost of formula. For those of you who do, you know how expensive it can be! I recently got an email from Peter telling me about his thrifty formula tip.
My wife and I have been cutting back wherever and whenever we can. After much thought, we decided to make the switch from national brand to store brand infant formula. My wife (and my pediatrician) had to convince me that I could do this and still provide my daughter all the nutrition she needs. What I learned was that in fact, all formulas in the US are regulated and must have the same nutritional content and ingredients.
He said he saves $58 a month (almost $700 a year) by using the Kroger brand formula. Great job!
You can save a lot of money by using the store brand (not just on formula). Try it out!
