Powder, concentrate, or RTF...

Why did you choose the one that you use? Was it:
  • Baby's preference
  • Only form that your formula comes in
  • Price
  • Convenience
  • Other

We started on Enfamil Lipil and we tried RTF and Concentrate and it just wasnt the best for her.

When we switched to Gentlease, Powder is the only kind...same as the Sam's Club brand we use now. I'm glad that the kind that works for her happens to be cheap and easy!

Carlie decided!

For awhile, she couldn't tolerate lactose. So it was lactose-free. Then she couldn't tolerate powder, so it was RTF. Now, she has finally settled on the Target brand of Gentlease. Only 2 more months to go with formula!

Enfamil Gentlease

Powder form because that's all it comes in.

Enfamil Lipil Powder

When I gave him his first formula bottle, this is what I had received in the diaper bag from the hospital. He does great with it so that's what we're sticking to!

Enfamil Lipil. It is what we started at the hospital. We used the RTF to start because it was easy for us. Now we use the powder because of cost and we get free samples from our pediatrician.

We also use Gentlease, which only comes in powder form.

I didn't like it at first...that I didn't even have an OPTION. But I've gotten used to the powder now.

Similac Sensitive RTF. I am so grossed out by powder & I refuse to let him drink it He's on sensitive cause it's lactose free. Before we were using Advance w/ Earlyshield & his belly just wasn't tolerating it.

Caden is on Enfamil Prosobee Powder. I get it from WIC and they will offer concentrate, but I prefer powder, it is easier for me.
He was BF and then was on Gentlease but still had colic and issues w/ gas so we put him on soy, he has done well on it, and it took a while to get used to, it smells horrible
