Parent’s Choice Infant Formula is part of our formula (Review)

Parent's Choice Infant FormulaWhen it became clear that we would become a formula feeding family, I had a conversation with my son’s pediatrician about the different formula brands available. For a mother not planning to formula feed, it was an unanticipated cost for us and one I aimed to minimize if possible.

She assured me that the store brands of formula were just as good for W as the name brands so if I wanted to go that route, it was perfectly safe for him. She told me a number of facts that I’d also read about online:

  • In the US, all infant formulas are subject to the same regulations for manufacture and ingredients required for the growth of healthy babies under the Infant Formula Act.
  • Store brand formulas sold at major retailers are a premium national substitute at a value price and meet the same FDA nutritional requirements as all of the major brands.
  • The quality and safety of the manufacturing of infant formulas are also inspected by the FDA in the same way.

With this information, I felt armed to try an infant formula that wasn’t one of the name brands. I figured we would see how W handled it because it would be wonderful to save some money if the quality was just the same. We’re lucky because W isn’t a very picky eater and has switched between formula brands a few times. He handles them all the same so it’s never really been an issue.

It is estimated that the average family can save over $600 a year per infant by switching to Parent’s Choice Infant formula. To see what you could save, use the Parent’s Choice $avings Calculator. Then tell me what you would do with the money you save!
Parent's Choice Infant FormulaWe had the opportunity to try 2 of the infant formulas from the Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Lineup — Parent’s Choice Advantage and Parent’s Choice Premium. The Parent’s Choice Advantage is similar to Similac Advance and the Parent’s Choice Premium is similar to Enfamil Lipil Premium. We also received a Parent’s Choice Start Set complete nurser set.

We had a good experience with the formula. W took it like any other brand and I didn’t see any changes in him or in his diapers. It seems like it works very well for us. Overall, I didn’t see much of a difference from the other formula we have tried. We have tried all of the name brands over the course of our journey. Some of the powders mix up quicker than others and I would say that the Parent’s Choice is one that doesn’t mix up quite as quickly as the others. Otherwise it didn’t seem much different to me. It doesn’t have a strong scent either which is something I’ve heard other formula feeders talk about when discussing their formula. If you’re looking for a viable option at a lower cost, I think Parent’s Choice Infant Formula is one to try. It comes in so many different varieties that there should be something that works for almost every baby.

Have you had to use formula to feed your baby?

  33. We used Parent’s Choice with our twins, and they did very well with it.. and so did I. Store Brand formulas are nutritionally equal to the Name Brands. The US has very strict regulations set by the FDA that ALL infant formula manufacturers have to follow, so there’s no cutting corners when it comes to baby’s nutrition. Check out the Parent’s Choice website and you can find direct label comparisons on the formula pages. You can also find their Formula finder which helps you find the right formula for your baby based on his/her needs. There is also the Savings Calculator that shows you how much money you can save by using store brands instead of name brands. It’s a pretty big amount, and why pay more when you don’t have to?
