  • I went through this as well since my daughter was on hella expensive Nutramigen and I decided not to. If I dont know the history of the seller I wouldnt trust feeding my baby the formula. That's just me. Only you can decide what your comfortable with. For me I wasnt comfortable buying my babies only source of nutrition from a stranger.

  • Um tough..... I never would... Try looking on craigslist so you can actually see the can and make sure it hasn't been opened. You cant trust stuff like that on ebay

  • I did however buy the formula coupons from ebay and that helped cut the cost of the Nutramigen. Hugs momma I feel the pain and was so glad when we went to whole milk and she did fine wtih it.....
