Breastmilk is the most ideal food for your baby and it's FREE! No bottles, nipples, bottle brushes, formula containers, or formula needed. Talk about savings!
 
Formula
Not every mom has the desire or the ability to breastfeed her newborn and must turn to formula as an alternative. Formula can get very costly averaging between $1500-$2500 in the first year! Thankfully, you have options. Generic formulas, which by law must meet the same FDA standards as brand name formulas, can save you approximately $450-$750 in a given year! Other money savers include: buying formula in bulk from a wholesale discounter or from an on-line retailer, joining formula manufacturer's mailing list to receive coupons and free samples, searching for coupons on-line, and asking your pediatrician for samples.
