  • I used the store brand, its the exact same thing, and you get twice the size can for half the price.

  • I used the BIIIIIG cans from Sam's club. $20 a can, which lasted two weeks. So I only spent $40 a month on formula.

  • It's hard to say ow many cans, but we've always used Enfamil. He's now almost 13 months and we bought one last big can of Enfamil for toddlers while we're introducing him to whole milk. We used to buy the 12.5 oz cans, and I'd say on average went through 8-10 a month, starting at about 4 months old when he was no longer breastfed (it may have been less cans at that age though, it's hard to remember).

  • We use store brand.  It's the same for half the price.

    We buy the 25oz cans of powdered and usually go through 3-4 a month.  Our son is 3 months old.  They are only like $13-$16 depending on where we buy them so it's not that expensive.
