  • Good Start soy. Every 3 days we open a new one unless its the bigger container and that lasts a week.

  • it all depends on how old your baby is...when they are younger, they drink more bottles because that is all they they get older they drink less formula. My son is on Good Start Milk Based formula...and we go through about a can a week give or take...he's 11 months old.

  • "Similac advance. He drinks 2 cans a week."

    Nakoal, I know you're doing research. prices 6 cans of this at $79. That's a three week supply based on the above statement.

    Something to check out. WalMart doesn't list their own house brand on the website, strangely enough. It will be cheaper but the quesiton is always "what will baby take?"

  • We are on Enfamil Gentlease...we can go for about 1-2 weeks on a son is also only 6 weeks old so we can stretch a little bit longer then you would as they get older.
