The Designers Chic

For me nothing was more precious and memorable than the days, weeks and months that lead to the birth of my first born baby girl, my princess bruiser. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with her I knew right away I was going to breastfeed her by hook or by crook. My mother was not able to breastfeed me due to my allergies so at a very early age I was already on formula. It was not just any formula It had to be a certain formula that is exactly for my needs. I grew up on formula and not on my mother's milk. Breastfeeding was a conscious effort on my part. I knew the benefits it can give to my daughter and to me. My daughter can get the best nutrients and vitamins from my milk while I also get the chance to really bond with my daughter and share something really really special with her. Breastfeeding was not that hard on my part but unfortunately my milk dried up after 6 months. The only consolation I feel is that I still got to breastfeed her. From 6 months on she was already eating by then and also on the formula about 4 times a day. Mind you putting her on the formula was expensive but like Ralph would say It is an expense that he would not mind. Kaitlyn is been on Enfamil and she is striving. I always wonder though how much we could save if we put her on Parent's Choice Infant Formula. Now, I can find out for myself how much I could be saving If I had Kaitlyn on store brand formula rather than the name brand ones. One big can of formula is $25 a pop in our place and if we should transfer her to the store brand we could be saving over $300. That is a big savings right there. Want to know how much you could also be saving if you switch from your brand name formula to store brand formula? Easy, just check out Parent's Choice Saving Calculator and find out how much money you could be putting back in your pocket.
