I have two toddlers one I gave Enfamil exclusively and the other started on Enfamil until I wised up. It was merely by accident that she got the parents choice. I had sent my husband to the store to pick up the Enfamil, but they were out and my husband picked up the closest thing to it. He brought home this parents choice formula. Of course at first I didn’t like it. It was clumpier than the Enfamil. It seemed like it had more moisture in it.
After close inspection of the labels I discovered that they were almost exactly the same. The only difference that I saw was that the parents choice had more fat proteins in it. Which in my daughter’s case was a good thing. She was in need of the extra lipids. That also explained why the Enfamil seemed to be drier than the Parent’s Choice. My daughter took to the Parent’s Choice without a problem and I never switched back.
The Parent’s Choice has the same ingredients and comes in the same size container but is half the cost as Enfamil. It would be a wise choice for parent to switch to the Parent’s Choice if their baby will take it. Parent’s Choice Infant formula can be found exclusively at Wal-Mart Stores. The average cost of Enfamil at Wal-Mart is $23.00 for a large can and the average cost of Parent’s choice is $11.00. This will make a 50% savings, which comes in handy when considering all the formula you will go through in that first year.
An even better deal is if you shop at Sam’s Club, the whole sale store related to Wal-mart. At Sam’s Club they carry the same formula but labeled under a different name. At Sam’s Club it is called Member’s Mark, but trust me it is exactly the same as Parent’s choice. There you can get an extra large can for $15.
