anyone use generic brand formulas?

Babies R Us makes a generic form of Enfamil Gentlease. I was debating trying it. Are they exactly the same does anyone know? its so much cheaper!

Re: anyone use generic brand formulas?

  • We use the Target brand of Enfamil Infant and it's just fine! We even checked with the doctor before we switched and she said it's all the same stuff - just to buy the equivalent of what you've been giving LO.

  • We use target up and up brand knockoff of similac advance. It's 10 cheaper than the brand name and the only difference in the ingredients is a very slight variation of the order less linoleic acid I believe. Same nutrient composition though! My LO had no problem with the switch.

  • We use the Wal-Mart brand of gentlease.  I believe the FDA regulations mandate that if a store is going to make a generic brand of a certain formula, it has to be exact to the last ingredient. You're right, it is so much cheaper. We pay almost fifteen dollars less for the value size and get MORE than the Enfamil value size anyway.

    We switched LO to the Sam's Club version of Enfamil Infant. It's about half the cost, but all of the nutritional info and the ingredients are exactly the same. LO tolerates it fine.

  • I use Targets similac sensitive for both kids.  I actually like it better than name brand, it isn't as bubbly.

  • We use the Target version of Enfamil. For 2 dollars less we get almost twice as much formula, and DD didn't notice when we made the switch three weeks ago.

  • We use the Target/Walmart versions of Similac Sensitive. No problems here, just savings.

    This exactly. We were on enfamil gentle ease and went to targets equivalent. After a few days of more spitting as he got used to it we were great! Saves SO much more

  • We use Sam's Club for our twins...if you look on the container the ingredients are identical...seems silly to pay SO MUCH for a brand name!! Our boys haven't had one problem with the Sam's Club formula!
