If you eligible for WIC, I would look into that. It's really helpful, as formula expenses can add up.
I think I go through about 10-15 small cans a month. So that would be about $100 - $200 a month. I would honestly budget for more though. I always budget for more than I actually need - about 3 cans more ($50 in my budget) Just in case I would need more for some reason. It's not something I can run short on LOL
ETA: Kaylin is on Enfamil AR for GERD/acid reflux. It is more expensive - $14 per 12 oz can.
Most brands (Enfamil, Similac, etc.) cost about $12 for 12 oz. There are also generic store brans (Target, Sams Club, Walmart, etc.) that cost a lot less.

I use Parent's Choice (Walmart generic for Enfamil Lipil and whatever the regular Similac one is) and it's $13 for a 24 ounce can. We go through a can every 5 to 6 days. That averages out to about $80 per month.
I'm thankful that she tolerates a formula that is "duplicated" in generic form. I don't know what we would do if we had to spend $200 or more per month on formula.
