From my taste tests the ready to feed has a wonderful flavor, but my babies didn't seem to care, as long as it wasn't the alimentum, lol!

For us powder was the easiest to use, plus it's cheaper.

You are brave mama! I can't even stand the smell of formula, the thought of actually tasting it, oh man lol

When DS was a newbie and we had to supplement (wasn't able to pump enough) I loved the ready to feed glass bottles from Good Start, pop a nipple on or pour 2 into a bigger bottle and we were good to go. Easy to carry around too. When he went to all formula we just used the Good Start powder. I never really saw the point of the concentrate TBH. It seemed just as much work as powder with having to add water, while trying to be as convenient as RTF. I'd rather just one or the other.

I started tasting after we had try alimentum. Ds projectile vomited as soon as it hit his mouth, and I swore never to give him anything again that I hadn't tried first. The smell was so bad that I wanted to vomit :-(
So, the ready to feed, if it wasn't so expensive, I would have loved for bfast...like a sweet vanilla shake ;-)

Re: powder or concentrate?

I actually preferred the concentrate. Powder made my son constipated, but the exact same formula in concentrate did not. I liked that it mixed better than powder and that it was easy to make a whole day's worth to keep in the fridge. I made half bottles and pumped what I could to top it up ( not ahead of time though).

Poweder is my least favorite. It almost always causes constipation in my kiddos. DS1 was on it exclusively & we had poo issues. DS2 was on liquid concentrate. Both were Nutramigen. DS3 is on powder but it is Elecare & so I have no choice. His poo is fine though. He is on Simply Thick and that takes care of any constipation issues.

Re: powder or concentrate?

We've used powder for all 3 of our kids. Its the most convenient. If you have a healthy, full-term infant, then sterile formula is not required. Whatever works best for you though. Cost is the biggest factor for our choice as powder is also the most cost effective IMO.
