Best formula for Breastfeeding mothers

Anonymous

My son started daycare a couple days ago and is going through the milk supply I provide for him during the day by afternoon. I’m trying to keep up with pumping enough, but if it comes down to him having to use formula during the day and breast milk when at home, what formula would you suggest I buy?

    We use similac but when we go to Costco we use the Kirkland brand because it’s the same maker/formula just WAAAY cheaper. My son was combo fed with breast feeding and formula and he never had tummy issues

    We used the sensitive target brand with my first. You get more powder for less money!

    I used enfamil gentle ease it’s in the purple can. It’s expensive but it did wonders when switching from breastmilk. Enfamil is advertised as closest to breastmilk

    Enfamil Gentlease is great, but do you have WIC benefits (or qualify for them)?? We just qualified for WIC and they are contracted with Similac, so we switched to the Similac equivalent (Similac Total Comfort). I just got 18 nine ounce cans (yes, 18) for free! Definitely look into it if you can.
