With a bundle of joy who you always want the best for, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed as you strive to make smart purchasing decisions. When it comes to feeding your little one, while breastfeeding is the gold standard, as many as 80% of moms supplement with infant formula at some point during the baby’s first year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Many moms are not aware that they can save up to 50% on infant formula, by choosing a store brand over a national brand. In case you are not familiar with store brand infant formula, it is sold under individual retailer brands, such as Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up & Up. They are as nutritionally complete as the national brands, yet are typically half the price of the national brands, and can save you about $600 a year. Perrigo Nutritionals is the largest supplier of store brand infant formula and nutrition products in the world and one of only four companies recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for meeting the strict FDA requirements for safety, nutrition, and quality for infant formula-manufacturing in the United States.
Armed with advice on what new parents can spend less on without compromising on quality is Sandra Gordon, one of the nation’s leading baby products experts. Sandra has just released a new book, Save a Bundle: 50+ Ways to Save Big on Baby Gear, where she shares her top money-saving tips for new parents, including her advice on safe products, like store brand infant formula, that parents can buy for their baby without compromising nutrition or spending a bundle.
Mom Says: With all three of mine, we supplemented their eating with Store Brand Formula! It is just as good as the National Brands and much more in expensive!
