Which form does your little one drink? Ready to feed, Concentrate, or Powder? Also does one do better than others?

This was supposed to be a poll but I guess I did it wrong.

I use powdered Good Start. I also have ready to feed Good Start but she doesn't like it as much. I personally haven't tasted them so I don't know why she likes one more than the other. I only have the RTF stuff on hand in case we have a bad earthquake (we live in CA).

With dd#1 (Alexis) I always used the concentrate and had no problems with it.

With dd#2 (Paige) I used the powder until about 3 months ago and now she is on Pediasure since she is FTT. The Pediasure only comes ready to feed.

I use powder but have some RTF here in case of emergency. The NICU gave him the RTF bottles.

Noah has the similac advanced with omega ..yadda yadda.. LOL.. my brain's drawing an omega blank...
anyways, it's powdered, but we have some RTF on hand, for all day outings, where boiled water isn't always available and in case of an emergency.

Jackson is also on the Similac Advance with Omega yada yada haha. We've been using the cans of powder, but I just bought a case of concentrate so when the cans run out we'll use that. And a couple RTF cans for our bus trip next week.

Powder for us. We tried RTF and she did horribly on it. I think it bothered her stomach because she was a miserable little thing and it made her hungrier far more often.

We use powdered Emfamil A+ with DHA/ARA...we have tried the concentrate of that and she spat up so much!
Thinking of switching to Good Start with Omega 3....cheaper

Leo takes the Enfamil Advance with Lipil etc, etc.... Powder form. I started out with the Similac/Yadda (I had a sample from the hospital) but WIC only covers Enfamil products... no problems with it so far!

Mia takes Similac NeoSure Ready Feed she had that in the hospital so I guess she got attached. I've tried the powder but she won't take it.

I use the powdered stuff because it's the only form I found Parent's Choice in when I first went to buy formula. It works fine for us, so I never saw a reason to change!

I use powder. I found that the RTF stuff is much harder to get out of clothes.
