Baby Formula….Store Brand or Name Brands?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was glad that I was given the opportunity to share my thoughts about store brand baby and infant formula verses well know name brands. Those who know me personally know I exclusively have breast fed my daughter  till 19 months of age now age 2 1/2 and plan to breast feed my son who is due to be born in the next few weeks.   I know all moms aren’t able to breast feed and or sometimes have to supplement with a formula for numerous reasons.

I’m sure whether a new mom or a well seasoned mother like myself you are going to want to only give your baby the very best with formula and the question arises, ” Which formula is the best to go with & really  what is the difference between the name brand formulas and the store brands (ie.store brand formula Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target, CVS, Kroger, Walgreens, and Babies R Us.)?”.

I read an article on the the Providence Children’s Health Examiner website on this particular issue and learned that the FDA regulates all formula and so they all meet the same nutrient specifications meaning just because a particular formula cost more doesn’t’t make it any better than another one. And the reasons other brands cost more than the store brands is only because they are heavily marketed unlike store brands. In knowing this, a lot of people could be saving as much as $600 a year on formula. Imagine that!

I hope in knowing this, you’ll be more likely to do what’s best for your budget and your baby by knowing the true difference in store brand verses name brand formula.

Before I go, I’d like to remind my readers of the  the huge recent voluntary recall from Abbott for certain Similac powder infant formulas because of the possibility of presence of a small common beetle in the product.  (If you have additional questions about the Similac recall or some in your current possession, simply call (888) 376-2054 and the return process can be explained to you.
