Hey ladies,

So Andrew goes though 1 can of powder a week.. and they are around $30 a can(he uses Enfamil A+) Well we were at costco yesterday and I saw their brand of formula.. it was only $13-17 a can.. Does anyone use this? Is it any good? Any problems with it? Is it as good as the Enfamil?

Thanks!

I've never used Kirkland, but alot of moms here use generic formula. Alot of them say that the generic brands have practically identical ingredients to the name brand formula. So its really just as good.

My little girl slurped it down as fast as anything, but she liked any and every type of formula we gave her.

I never noticed anything different, my dd has tried so many different formulas, Enfamil, Similac, generic brands, you name it, she's had it. It never seemed to bother her. You might try buying one can to start with (in some places you have to buy two) to see how your baby handles it.

I've never tried it sorry! I would just try it and see how he responds!
I asked my pedi if I could switch to generic and she said she would rather me not. I guess it's just not as good. I have a few cans though that were given to me that I will use when he is older, just not now and just not all the time!
I would talk to your pedi about it and see what he/she has to say about it!

My pediatrician says the generic stuff is just fine. Luke got generic formula for the most part (until he needed Alimentum), and he turned out wonderfully.. was always a good gainer, and is a really healthy little kid.

Milk based powder gave him gas and stomach aches, so we switched to soy, which gave him reflux. We tried using the name brand instead of the generic to see if it made a difference - it didn't. We also switched formula on him pretty regularly.. we usually used the Target brand, but if we happened to be at the grocery store or at Walmart we just grabbed a can from there.

As for Lauren.. she had some Enfamil in the hospital, then we came home and she got a can of Walmart brand, then Sam's Club brand, and now she's on Publix brand. So we're doing it again.. the switching formulas thing.. and she doesn't seem to have a problem with it either.
