Giving your baby generic formula

Posted by   + Show Post
I have a two month old and currently feeding hin similac advance but for the last couple of days been feeding him parent's choice dvantage and he loves it and doing a research there's not a difference between both formula except price. What do you think would you feed your baby generic formula??

My son is breastfeed so I wouldn't feed him genetic formula but from my understanding, they are practically the same. All formulas have to meet the same standards so why pay twice as much for a name?

heck yes i would and i do. they all compare to another and have the exact same forumula and you get more in parents choice than you would if you were buying infamil or simalac. Especially since they have these new stupid plastic containers. They cut back on the amount and you pay more

Yes. It's fine. They are the same. Similac is twice as much as the generic and you get more than you do with similac

My older two who were formula fed both  got generic formula. I don't  buy much stock into brand names of anything. I no longer use formula though

Buy a brand name can and refill it with the generic stuff. Hahahaha. Kidding. I used generic for both kids. I compared the labels and they're the same. My doctor was cool with it so I saw no reason to buy the brand name

Generic formula is made by the same companies who make name brand formula. I have used generic formula and I would again. Not all of us have Wic or lots of money:)

I use generic soy formula for my baby and she loves it and it works fine in her system. The only difference that I noticed in the formula besides price is similac mixes better and more easy then the generic does. My baby use to be on similac sensitive but needed to switch to soy.
