Having a baby is such an exciting time in a parent's life. As exciting as it is, it can also be a bit stressful and confusing. Whether it is your first or you have had multiple kids, it can be a tad overwhelming! One of the areas many new moms are unsure about is feeding a baby. If you have decided on using infant formula, there are so many choices, it is hard to know which is the right one for your baby. I know when I had my first baby, I was not sure how to choose which formula to use. He had a really sensitive tummy and we had a tough time with his feedings. My pediatrician was a huge help and so were some fellow moms who were old hat! Here are a few tips to help you in making that decision:
Tips To Choose The Best Infant Formula For Your Baby
- Choosing The Right Form Of Formula: There are 3 forms infant formula comes in. You can choose from ready to use, powdered and concentrated. Deciding is a matter of preference and convenience as well as affordability. Of course the most convenient is the most expensive, which is the ready to use!
- Age of Your Baby: There are a variety of formulas for different stages of your babies growth and development. You can choose form newborn, older baby and toddler.
- Types Of Formula: There are many choices of formula, and knowing your babies needs and tummy issues is key. You have a choice between milk and soy based, formula for sensitive tummies, iron enriched formula, formula with rice starch added and organic. When in doubt, seek your pediatricians advice.
When it comes to brands, there are many and that choice can be overwhelming and confusing too. Do I need to buy a name brand you ask? Are the generic brands just as good for my baby as the name brands you also asked? The answer is no and yes! With the Parent’s Choice™ Infant Formula line from Walmart, you get quality for your baby and affordability for your pocketbook! Because my youngest had those tummy issues, I did a comparison of the Parent’s Choice™ Gentle with the Enfamil Gentlease. I was shocked to see there was over $400 in savings by using the Parent’s Choice™ over the Enfamil. You can compare Parent’s Choice™ formula you prefer with the national brands by visiting their website and seeing how Parent’s Choice Formulas are clinically proven to be as well tolerated as the national brands.
Parent’s Choice™ carries a variety of choices which are, “Clinically proven to be as well-tolerated as the national brands.” You can choose from the Parent’s Choice™ Advantage Powdered Formula, Premium Powder Formula, Gentle Powdered Formula or the Sensitivity Powdered Formula, just to name a few! They offer organic, gentle, sensitive, tender, older infant and toddler as well as rice starch added formulas. The Parent’s Choice™ Infant Formula meets the FDA standards just as the national brands of infant formula do. They contain DHA and ARA, which may support brain and eye development, offer soy or milk-based formula as well as iron-fortified and they have calcium for strong bones. To keep your baby from getting sick, the prebiotics are there to support your babies’ immune system. Just remember, quality does not need to mean pricey and with Parent’s Choice™, you do not need to skimp on what is best for your baby!
Which Parent’s Choice™ formula would you choose and how much would you save over the national brand?
