If you're using baby formula (full time or supplementing), how's it going? What brand are you using? Did you have to try more than one before finding one that works well for your baby? Any frustrations? Which bottles do you like?

We were supplementing at night to get her to sleep longer but found it wasn't making a difference so she's back to straight BM.

We were using Gerber Good Start Gentle mixed with the BM and the only thing I noticed is she was pooping more. Other than that she didn't seem to mind it!

Oh & we use the Playtex Drop Ins - nice and easy to clean!

I was using the same formula and system for the couple of nights that I was so exhausted and my girl was just ravenous..lout it didn't seem to make much difference. We're back to straight breast milk too.

We are full time formula and using Enfamil soy due to problems with milk based formulas. Colton was using powder but with his silent reflux we switched to ready to feed, and he is now doing fine on the soy and eating well. It is costing more for the ready feed and I envy those of you who can breast feed (I was unable per my breast surgeon). Anyone who has any Enfamil coupons they aren't using, feel free to send them to me. We use playtex drop ins, originally used Avent but decided to switch.

I am using similac sensitive, however will be switching to good start. Good start doesn't have the odor like similac does. I have used it with all of my kids including my 15 year old.

I thought i saw this at Babies R Us in 32 oz size. They might be a little less and you can use your rebate copons too (maybe you can use those at where you are buying already). I am spending about $250-300 a month.

Yikes! That's awful that you have to spend so much $ on formula. I've saved all my coupons and don't expect to use them (I'm breastfeeding), so if any of you want to message me your addresses and the brand you're using, I'll try to send you some. I have many that look like checks with my name printed on them, but I'm assuming anyone could use them, right?
