I breastfed my son for the first six months of his life. I was planning on doing it until he was a year old, but was unable to because of medical reasons. I discovered that when I went it for his check-up with his doctor, I could get free formula and/or samples of medicine from the doctor. They have all kinds of samples in the office to give away. All you have to do is ask for them. If you are planning on nursing, still ask your doctor for the formula. Even though I was nursing, we gave our son a bottle of formula once a day. It made the transition to all formula (which was unforseen) so much easier!! -- Stephanie, 29, from MN

I got my BEST money saving baby tip from right here on your website. I saved HUGE amounts of money on formula with my son by buying formula coupons off eBay I never paid more then 1/3 their value and the savings were phenomenal!! I tell all my friends about it!! -- Jennifer from MN

I have a lot of money saving ideas on this one I have a 7 month old. I asked my sons doctor about the off brand formula the Parents Choice with Iron and Lipids. He said it is the same thing as the Enfamil with Lipil that Wal-Mart charges less because they don't advertise as much like handing out diaper bags and pens and stuff. The Parents choice is 17.00 for a large tub and the Enfamil is 25.00. -- Melanie from ME

I saved nearly half the cost of buying formula by buying only powdered formula, and buying the store brand. BY LAW generic formulas have to be the same as the name brands, they all have to offer the same nutrition and be government approved. No risk. -- Susabelle from MO 

I also used Carnation Good Start formula when I needed to supplement with nursing.  Both of my girls had no problem breast feeding or taking a bottle.  As they got older, we then used Carnation for the older babies (forgot the name) and that worked well for us.  I subscribed to their magazine and always got coupons for free or discounted formula.  This helped a great deal for us!  The magazine had some great tips for me as the girls were at that age. -- Jennifer from MN

I have 4 children ages 5, 2 1/2 and 1 year old twins.  I had to formula feed my kids and When you take your baby in for their check up, I always asked for extra formula.  I would get anywhere between 2-5 cans.  this helped in the expense of formula.  Doctors at the clinic, always have formula on hand. -- Roxie from MN

If you can't breastfeed can you qualify for WIC. If you do you get free formula for a year and other food after that.  We got free Nutramigen and later Isomil for one of our kids that had digestive problems.  If you're pregnant or breastfeeding you can also get free food. Join the formula clubs for free coupons and the generics are just as good like Carnation Good Start and lots cheaper. -- Sharon from OH

 

I have a 16 month old and we got tons of samples from Enfamil but because of an allergic reaction to it she couldn't drink it so I went to www.verybestbaby.com they give you coupons every month at least 3 of them for a formula called Good Start.  It's really good formula, and then when the baby is old enough for cereal they will give you coupons for cereal as well. The magazines that they mail are also very helpful!! -- Jessica from WA

 

Sign up for all the companies that welcome a new child-- formula, diapers, Gerber,... before and after the baby's arrival they sent me coupons, samples and magazines with information.  Often your doctor's office or hospital gives out cards that ask you to get a free magazine
subscription.  These were a huge help.  I received 8 cans of formula because I listed I was unsure if I would nurse or use formula. In the end I nursed, and was able to give away the cans to a mom who needed them.  -- Sarah P. (many other readers submitted similar tips)
