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?
"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.
