Time to Switch Baby Formula?

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

I think I might have already told you about Similac's recall of their baby formula due to possible contamination from beetles or their larvae, but I want to remind you about it again. You can read more about it in this article. I don't think I like the idea of feeding babies beetles. It makes me shiver.

Of course, we all understand that this sort of thing in any product produced and sold commercially  can happen and it is not exclusive to Similac. Something you might not have thought about is the fact that you can now switch to generic formula without worry of losing the nutrients that are essential to a baby's diet.

Using a store brand formula, such as Parent's Choice, is a great alternative to the big name brands. The only difference among the formulas is the cost. According to Parent's Choice Formula, you can save as much as $600 per year by using their brand over national brands.

Parent's Choice Advantage Infant Formula contains prebiotics - good bacteria that support a baby's digestive system. Prebiotics have been claimed to support YOUR digestive system as well.

Available in 23.2 and 12.4 oz. sizes, Parent's Choice Advantage is available at Walmart, Target, and other stores nationwide.

Breast milk is still the best for your baby. It's also the most convenient, cleanest, and least expensive. Not only that but you can control and know exactly what your baby is getting.

I agree with you completely. I breast fed four out of my five children. The oldest, who was fed formula, is the one with the most severe allergies today - 22 years later.

For those who are going to feed their babies formula anyway, store brands are a good choice financially and nutritionally, as far as I can tell.

Thanks for you comment.
