Around here I notice a lot of people are using 'ready made' canned formula. So, I was curious what all of you are using? By the way, I'm using the powdered formula.

Powdered for us. We tried RTF once and it made her SOOOOOOOOO cranky and miserable, and so that she was eating every hour or so. Her tummy must've not liked it at all.

i will be using the concentrated cans.i don't like the fact that the powder kind seems thinner and i don't like the sticky mess it leaves when i'm half asleep trying to make a bottle and spill it all over the place lol....i've used powdered when i had to with my other kids and i do remember it being easier with the wide necked bottles though.

I used RTF Enfamil AR when my DS was on it and then switched to concentrate Enfamil Lipil with Iron but for some reason he was having a bad tummy upset and fussing and when I tried the powder it stopped. I tried to go back to the concentrate but he got his tummy upset back and the fussing began again. So now we use Enfamil Lipil with Iron powder.

I WISH I could afford to use the concentrated stuff, but we use the powdered stuff.. We use Enfamil with Iron. I've tried a couple of different ones, but James always gets a bad rash when we switch.

We use powdered. We only used the ready made when our pediatrician tried us on the Enfamil AR. She seems to do well with both, but the powder is cheaper. We use the Enfamil AR still, but it is really thick due to the rice starch in it, so we have to make it up ahead of time, that seems to be the easiest way to do it.

I use Enfamil Lipil w/ Iron powdered. I have tried the RTF and the concentrate but I don't think they agree with her. Plus, they are smellier to me, they're expensive and they STAIN!!! Powdered Lipil and even the spit up from it never seems to stain for some reason.
