Does anyone use store brand formula?

I had no idea they make this. Granted I've had no need to even think about formula until yesterday, but I was food shopping today and saw that they make store brands. Just curious if anyone uses them and if they're really all that different?

I don't because my DD has issues and I wasn't messing with a good thing Chat Icon But I do know a mom who went from Enfamil to the big Costco brand because it was way cheaper and her daughter did fine on it.

I BF for aprox. 4 months then used my similac and enfamil lipil samples. I then switched to the Costco brand...the powdered formula.

Please FM me if you have any questions.

I was very nervous at first. I thought my DS had a milk allergy...but did not.

I use Target brand with both kids and they are fine. Store brands are actually one of the "major" brands, just a lot cheaper. Chat Icon

I either read or was told that because things like infant formula have governmental regulated standards that store brands are just as good as name brands.

I have a coupon for the Target store brand if anyone would like.

I read the same thing. In fact, I read that infant formula is one of the most highly regulated items sold in stores. So, go ahead and buy what is cheapest!
