Let's face it having children is expensive, even more so when they are infants. Having to buy diapers, wipes, soaps, clothes, and especially baby formula can really put a strain on a family budget. Today more and more parents are learning that name brand isn't always the smartest choice. I notice that I buy store brand a lot more than I buy a national brand, but I am picky, the store brand has to be just as good as the name brand.
For 13 years, Parent's Choice Infant Formula has helped parents to save an average of $600 USD a year and Parent's Choice Formula has nutritional equivalence of national brands. I don't know about you, but to me that is some much needed money that could be used to get other things a child needs. One of my favorite things on the Parent's Choice website is the Savings Calculator. It allows you to pick a national brand/type of baby formula. It then shows you a comparable Parent's Choice Formula. It shows you the average cost of each, and then goes on to show you how much you would save per year, month, week, day, and bottle, below you will see how it calculated the savings of purchasing Parent's Choice Organic over Similac Organic.
I was amazed that one could save $523.55 per year on average. *Total savings with Parent's Choice Infant Formula calculations based on a price per fl oz comparison of Parent's Choice Infant Formulas and their comparable national brands.
