  • powder.. with concentrated liquid you have to mix all your bottles at once, refrigerate them and heat up before baby eats. powder is just so much easier, just water and scoops, and much more convenient for on the go.

    i would like to add though all 3 of my kids have been on powdered formula, my last one will be 1 in january and i cant wait to mix my LAST bottle! lol ive been mixing bottles for 3 straight years!

  • I used powder. It was easy to carry, no refrigeration necessary when it was dry, an open can is good for a month, and it was way cheaper.

  • Powder it's cheaper, plus where I shop they don't have the kind my babies use in liquid anyway

  • I use powder bc it seems more convenient bc I have this litttle 3 sectioned bowl in the diaper bag that I can measure out for a 8oz bottle in each section and just pour it in when Im out somewhere and I dont have to worry about powder going bad. And it's cheaper.

  • i switched to powder after my son started teething (biting) when breastfeeding! lol I have used both and liked both. I ended up using primarily powder for the reasons stated by others....cheaper!
