How Much Does Baby Formula Cost?

Although most experts still say that breastfeeding is best, they also say that formula is a perfectly acceptable substitute.  Many moms are unable to breastfeed for many different reasons, so formula may be the only option.  When planning to have a baby, the cost of feeding the child should be taken into consideration.

    Costco has a rather large bottle of formula for less than $20 – best value out there. Also, if you compare ingredients to Similac, they are almost identical.
