Trying generic formula

August 26th, 2008 at 06:50 pm

Well, I took the plunge and bought a can of the generic Target bean formula. My mom talked me into it. It's $11 cheaper than what we use, per can, and has the same ingredients as Enfamil. I don't think twice about generics for myself, but for some reason I am uncomfortable with unbrand formula for baby bean. Maybe because his brain is growing so fast right now? Maybe because formula isn't regulated by the FDA. Not sure, but I am going to try it and see how it goes.

    I know your hesitation, but you know it's probably made in the same plant as the Enfamil. Just without all the marketing and endless promotions and "rebate" checks and junk that the major players push.
    And of the discounters, I think Target is the most trustworthy.

    Mine are generic formula babies (the first wasn't), and my 2nd one tested in the 97% for intelligence. Your sweetling will turn out just fine! I would suggest though sticking to one brand whatever it is.

    My bean has tried all kinds of different formulas, and the only one that upset him was the soy based one. I just finished breastfeeding, and was using free samples to supplement, but now I am out. I have been using Similac. I guess I will try the generic alternative!

    As long as it isn't made in China, I'd have no hesitation. I don't even know if there was generic formula when we had an infant. We used brand name but usually got free samples or really good coupons so it wasn't that expensive.
