Every day, I see a post about how expensive formula is. A large tub of "normal" formula is $23, and formula companies send out TONS of $5 coupons. That comes out to roughly $18 a week. That's less than three bucks a day for food! If you can't afford the formula, how in the world do you plan on feeding the child once he or she is on table food?
EDIT: I think I didn't make my point here clear. I am simply wondering how, if someone thinks that formula is prohibitively expensive, they plan on feeding the child when it is older. For example, a school lunch and breakfast where I live would run you over three bucks a day. That's about what formula cost for a newborn. If you can't afford to feed the child when it's a baby, you aren't going to be able to feed the child when it's older, either.
