How I Fed My Babies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a big believer in breast feeding.  I planned on breast feeding my children, but when the time came, I couldn't.  I'm not sure if it was the size of my breasts (they were very large) or that Ryan just wasn't interested, but no matter what position I tried, nothing worked.  I eventually had to accept the fact that he would not be breast feeding, which meant I had to use formula.  Even back then, I knew that the store brands were just as good as the name brands.  In fact, all infant formulas have to meet the same nutritional guidelines, so why spend money on the more expensive brands when the cheaper ones are just as good for your baby?

The store brands don't have to spend money on advertising, and they don't give their products to the hospitals for free, so they can keep their products reasonably priced.  In fact, some studies show that you can save about $600 a year simply by switching to store brand formula.  For new parents, that's a big number.  Imagine how many diapers and wipes that money can buy.

I will always be a believer in breast feeding, but it's nice to know that there is an affordable alternative for mothers like me.
