Anybody try the Parents Choice formula?

Linden is on enfamil gentlease, and it's working good for him - when he actually finishes his bottle - but it's 30.00$ a can and he's going through about one every week.

I was thinking of trying Parents Choice - Gentle is probably the same right?? But I wanted to know of any reviews

I received Nestle Goodstart on WIC, but after Cassidy turned 1 I used the Parent's Choice. The consistency was completely different, seemed more like Similac to me. Of course, at that age Cassidy had no issues with it. She didn't seem to mind that it tasted different.

Sorry I'm not more help!

My son was on Parent's Choice for the last few months before he turned a year. He didn't have any issues with it.

Tolerance obviously requires a non-contentious manner of relating toward one anotherís differences. But tolerance does not require abandoning oneís standards or oneís opinions on political or public policy choices. Tolerance is a way of reacting to diversity, not a command to insulate it from examination.

I picked up a can, the gentle stuff was more expensive and smaller than 'milk based' but still 20$ compared to 30$

No foam when I shook it - so that part was unlike Similac, didn't smell that stinky right away

I've never used anything but generic formula (except Alimentum), and I've never had problems. Well, Luke had issues with his tummy, but it had nothing to do with the formula.
