FORMULA

Here's a photo of our formula stockpile in the basement. And no, I'm not a hoarder!



Yes, we go through a lot of formula with two hungry baby boys. :)

What you see here are 22 refill boxes (of 2 containers each) and 6 separate reusable containers. It's hard to see but the back row contains 14 boxes. This total amount lasts us approximately 6 months.

As you can clearly see, we use Enfamil formula. About a week after the babies were born last fall, Similac formula was recalled and taken off the shelves because beetles were found in the production area of one of their manufacturing facilities. And it was recommended by our pediatrician to use a name brand. So that was an easy decision for us, since we couldn't get Similac, Enfamil it was. We had actually received free samples of Similac from the hospital while we were there, but we later checked out the lot number and those were ones that were recalled!

Thank goodness for coupons and rebate checks. A special thank you to everyone who has so graciously helped us out with those coupons/checks.

And the countdown to their one year birthday when we can use cows milk begins...(Actually it began the day we started using formula.)
