Do you spend too much on your baby’s formula milk that you barely have enough money left for other household expenses? Here are some tips to save big money on baby formula.

Breastfeed your baby.

Breast milk is the healthiest and cheapest milk you can give your little one. Plus, breast milk contains the right amount of nutrients that your baby needs. It also helps keep away illnesses, which helps you save more money on doctor visits.

Shop around.

Prices of baby formula may vary depending on the store location. Take time to compare prices from one store to another.

Get free samples.

Like other baby supplies, you can get free milk samples from your local barangay health center. Likewise, your paediatrician may have sample packs too. Most manufacturers supply health centers and clinics free product samples as part of their marketing strategy.

Ask from friends and family.

You can either ask them to give baby formula as a gift or ask them if they have supplies at home that you can pay for a much lower price or get for free.

Go for generic.

We may have given this advice a couple of times already, but truly, this one is the most common and practical tip. Popular brands may guarantee maximum amount of nutrients your baby needs, but they can really affect your finances negatively.

I’m a first time parent, finances aside, how do I know which formula is best for my baby?

When it comes to bottle-feeding your baby, you may find it difficult to choose among the wide array of formula types and brands in the market. You first need to decide what formula type will work best for your baby—powdered, concentrated or ready-to-use. Then you must select a formula that contains proteins, sodium, fats and sugar similar to that of breast milk. If you think your baby experiences problems with the chosen formula, it’s probably best that you change it. Avoid switching formulas without consulting your pediatrician.

When it comes to feeding your baby with the right formula, you need to decide on 2 major factors: cost and your baby’s nutritional needs.
