    All you bottle feeding mommas

    Is there a huge difference between store brand and name brand formulas? I know they have different types, for sensitive stomachs, etc, but is there really a noticeable difference between a can that costs 13 bucks and a can that costs twice as much?

    What brand do you use?

    With DS I used both and couldn't really tell the difference I would just look at the ingredients for comparison.

    We used Enfamil.

    I used this

    It's what I was told was best while in the Hospital still with DD and she did well on it. I never trusted any of the cheaper brands and just stuck to what her nurses told me to use. It's also what they had there for bottle fed babies.

    Damien took any brand. We were on WIC with him so he got Enfamil.

    Lyric does best with Similac, but ok with Enfamil. I haven't tried her on store brand because I buy bulk from Sam's Club.

    We used generic from Sams Club with both and had no issues. We got the Gentle one for Bella and the regular one for Killian. Our membership paid for itself within a few months even compared to the store brands at Walmart and Target etc. It's a good option, especially if you don't qualify for WIC (we don't, or I'd have used the brand name since that's what WIC covers).

    My babies too any, except MDS could not have Similac.

    Most of the store brands and some of the name brands are all made in the same factory, just put in a different can, but all basically the same, that is why a lot say "compare to *insert name brand here*"

    My kids all used Carnation good start (I guess Nestle good start now?).

    My DD had an allergy to something in all formulas EXCEPT good start. I tried enfamil, similiac and all sorts of different types by those brands. I even was able to get wic to make checks for it. So for HER there was a difference between all the others and Nestle.

    I don't know what her deal was though......
