With my first pregnancy, I knew I was going to breastfeed. I read the books, I had the tools, I was ready. When our son was born, we needed to get food into him sooner than my body would allow. Formula was able to supplement him in the hospital until my body caught up. Everything ended up fine, and we went on to successfully breastfeed, but the experience made me realize that not everything always goes according to plan even if you think you are totally prepared. We’ve all been told that breast is best, but there are many reasons why breastfeeding isn’t always possible for a mother or her child. And there is no way to know (nor is it any of our business to know) the reasons behind a family’s choice. I’m just grateful that there are options to nourish all babies, so that families can make the choice that is right for them.
Whether you exclusively breastfeed, supplement breastfeeding with formula or use formula exclusively, every parent deserves to be supported. Once you make this very important decision for your child, the last thing you want to be worried about is cost if you’ve selected formula for your baby. That’s why we wanted to introduce you to Parent’s Choice Formula if you aren’t already familiar with it. Parents can save up to $600 a year by using Parent’s Choice Formula compared to other national brands! Have I got your attention yet? Don’t let the price fool you, the formula meets all of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations and the FDA’s standards. It has been clinically proven to be as well tolerated by infants as the national brand formulas are and clinically proven to support growth and development.
Really that’s all we want for our babies, right? We want babies with happy, filled bellies who are ready to go about the more important business of playing and learning about the world around them.
Once baby starts exploring with solids and finger foods, you’ll also want to check out the baby and toddler food line by Parent’s Choice, including Yogurt Bites, Cereals, Cereal Bars, Little Puffs, Little Fruits, Little Munchers and Little Wheels. These kinds of snacks are a lifesaver with older babies and young toddlers. Of course, they work great for a little snack while out and about (ahem, keeping your little one happy in the shopping cart). But I also found finger food snacks invaluable during meals. Most babies go through a phase of wanting to feed themselves even when they aren’t quite ready. Yes, it’s great to give him a chance to practice, but sometimes you need to get down to business. I used to have a few finger food snacks on the tray to alternate self-feeding with me spooning in the real meal.
Parent’s Choice is a private label that is sold exclusively at Walmart, where you can find their full line of baby and toddler formula, baby and toddler foods and pediatric electrolyte rehydration products.
