We all know that breast is best for baby. But what if you’re a mom who can’t breastfeed? I’ve been there. Jace was severely allergic to my breastmilk, and it caused him to choke to the point that he would stop breathing. Obviously, breastfeeding wasn’t an option for me.
There are other situations when moms can’t breastfeed. Maybe they don’t produce enough milk. Maybe mom is on medication that can be passed through the breastmilk. Maybe mom can’t pump at work, needs to supplement with formula, has multiples… The list of reasons why go on and on.
When this happens, it’s important for moms to get the best value for their dollar, while also safeguarding baby’s health. According to the 10th edition of the Consumer Reports Best Baby Products, store-brand infant formula is as nutritious for babies as nationally advertised brands. Moms can save significantly – up to 50%! – by buying store brand infant formula vs. nationally advertised brands.
Why is this so important?
As of October, a new Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program initiative designed to promote breastfeeding reduces infant-formula subsidies by up to 26%. That means moms who previously had most of their formula paid for by WIC may now have to purchase formula on their own.
