It was for us. My son had allergies, acid reflux, had colds, asthma....so for us going with the healthiest option was what I was most comfortable with. Some suggestions: go with a BPA free bottle to go with the organic formula. It makes no sense to go organic and then use harmful plastic that releases toxins into your baby every time he/she drinks. Glass bottle can be held in a great slide free pouch and you can look on line. Plenty of companies make BPA free plastic bottle but I like glass best. Then when you choose your organic formula....the packaging. Some containers they come in (same as non organic containers) are lined with lead. So that really does detract from the entire purpose of using organic. Research reputable companies. You can probably order on line, have it sent to you and then save money. Rather than going to the grocery store and paying their price plus their containers tend not to be as safe.

Where I would start: Europe. Many countries have banned plastics and packaging containing harmful toxins. Funny, same companies yet they don't do it for the U.S. So I bought my baby bottles from Switzerland. I would also order my forumla bulk from one of those countries after you do some research. It may cost more upfront - but for me it was worth it because I didn't worry about what I gave my baby. And after all my friends freaked out about the formula and bottle recalls....I had nothing to replace or worry about.
