Alimentum question

Hi mamas!

I'm very happy to find this board! My baby is 4wks old and we just started on alimentum. I'm wondering which is more cost effective? The rtf or powder? With the rrf I could use a $2 coupon and $5 check and the powder a $3 coupon and $5 check.

Rtf generally seems more expensive, but is easier on some babies tummies

Re: Alimentum question

I'd say the powder is. But the RTF can be easier on the tummy.

Rtf costs more but like already said is easier on the tummy and I've been told, tastes a little better. We started with rtf then moved to the powder after a few months.

Re: Alimentum question

We did RTF Alimentum for a full 6 mos cause my baby could never tolerate the powder. It got so expensive b/c he would go through one of those quarts a day. Even with coupons and checks (and it's hard to have that for every single one you buy), it was still more expensive than powder. Plus our ped's office had gobs of the powder samples but never any RTF. If baby can take the powder, by all means, use it!
