  • We bought Nestle Good Start. It ran us around $25.00 a can. My son is now two, so I don't remember if we used just one can a month or more.....

  • My 3 1/2 month old is on Similac and its about 23 or 24 dollars (dependsing on when its on sale). She goes through about a container a week. So for a month its about 100 dollars.

  • It all depends on the formula you are going to use. I use Similac Alimentum & my daughter is 5 months old and & her formula is about $30.00/ car @ 7 cans a month. It can be expensive but as they get older it wont be so bad, she's gone from 9 cans a month to 7 cans a month

  • they are pretty costly depending on the brand and where you buy it 10-30 dollars a can (if you want a good price go to walmart they also have cheaper diapers then babies R us as well as a good deal on wipies) I havent had mine yet but because of the price of formula I plan to breastfeed for sure

  • We buy ours at Costco and it is equivalent to Enfamil Lipil and Similac Advance. They compare their formula (Kirkland brand) to Similac and Enfamil on the side of the can. They are almost identical. We get 2 25.7oz cans for 19.79, and so we spend about $60 a month. A LOT cheaper than you will spend on any other formula. Good Luck!

  • I am on the WIC PROGRAM. So I got free stuff for my baby and me. With the checks they gave me it was about 9 cans a month for free and when I bought it at the store using the wic came out to be around $200 for all the cans at once. I was lucky I never had to buy any myself. lol. It's expensive for about $25 bucks a can. Wic pays for Similac.

  • We use the Walgreen's version of Similac aAdvance, it's 14.00 for a large can, our 9 MO goes through about a little over a can a week, so it's 75 bucks a month.
