Definitely! When my son drank formula we used parent's choice and Costco brand and he actually did better than he did with the Similac from WIC! We were soooooo thankful for WIC but when he started drinking more than what they provided we bought the generic brands and they worked great! Totally a money saver and just as good as name brands!


Yes it is, the formula companies are required to meet certain standards for formula so they are all pretty much the same. It really depends on your preference and how your baby does as to which one you chose.
