Tasting Baby Formula

Have You Taste Tested Formula?

"It's like Coke vs. Pepsi." That's how my son's pediatrician explained the differences between leading baby formula brands when I decided to wean my tot. With ingredient lists that look the same and ads claiming that the two have similar benefits, it was a virtual toss up when I stood in the baby food aisle at my local drugstore. In the end, I went with the one I had a coupon for and the rest, as the say, is history.

While the $3 off coupon sealed the deal for me, other mamas take a more scientific approach to choosing their lil one's new source of nutrition. A weaning mama recently told me that she is in the process of conducting a taste test to determine which tastes most like the breast milk her wee one is used to drinking. Fifty-four percent of LilSugar readers told us they tasted their own breast milk. Can the same be said for formula?

Yup, I did, and it was absolutely horrific. I felt bad but there wasn't a choice for me, I didn't produce milk, so that meant it was formula time. I've tried all of the ones I've given them, and I can tell you flat soy formula is the NASTIEST of the bunch. I nearly gagged on it. The gentlease broken down kind tasted the "best".

I bought the first pack because it's a trusted brand everyone knows. It smelled gross and tasted even worse! The next brand I tried was the one my sister-in-law recommended. We stuck to that for the last couple of months. I now bought a brand that costs only half the price and am about to test it. I think it's so funny how people find tasting breast milk or formula gross...I wouldn't give something to my kid that I wouldn't eat! I didn't have a full cup of it, but I wanted to know what it tastes like.

My daughter nursed, but my friend and I tried formula that she made for her baby and it's awful!
