If you are formula feeding or planning to will you use liquid or powder? Why would you use one over the other?

Liquid is so much more expensive and a pain in the butt to handle.

Liquid is MUCH more expensive, but was easier on my daughter's stomach. Mixing the powder ends up with ALOT of bubbles and gave my dd alot of gas so we had to start making bottles in advance and letting them settle until she got a bit older. I'm breastfeeding exclusively this time :)

I used powder with my first one. Seems like it lasted longer!

If I did formula feed I would use powder. Liquid is SO expensive and has to be stored just 'so'.

i am not FF this time, but i did with my son part time till he was 2 1/2 months and then full time after that until 1 year.

i started off with powder. the good thing about powder is you can take some of it dry when you go somewhere and just mix it into the bottle of water when you are ready.

i eventually switched to liquid though, bc it doesnt have bubbles like the powder afer you mix it. the bad thing about it is that it is only good out of the fridge for 2 hours, so if you are going somewhere for a longer period of time, then you have to either buy some powder to take, or take it in a cooler.
