Week 2 of our baby feeding series. This week we turn the spotlight to Formula. (last week was all about breast feeding/pumping, next week we will focus on bottles)
As with all baby related items it is not a one-size fits all when it comes to formula.
What brand of formula do you use? Any help/suggestions on navigating the options of formula types within each brand? What about specialty formulations (dairy free, soy free, etc)? If you plan to formula feed, what should you have ready beforehand? And you don't expect to formula feed, is there anything we may want to know ahead of time or have prepared just in case for supplementing or using/transitioning to formula?
Do you use pre-mixed or powder formula? What's your set-up at home, and what's your set-up on the road in your diaper bag?
Where and how do you get your formula? Do you have a good source for coupons? Certain stores to keep an eye on? Mail-order options? Assistance from medical offices?
