what brand formula do you use/like

I have been mixing BM with Formula using Baby's only orgnaic, she seems to like it she drinks it, I tasted it and it seemed bland, not bad but not good, I really dont know what BM taste like Do formula's taste differnt or is it because it is organic? I have been mixing it because I like doing both, and for right now it is working!!

I was a low milk producer so I had to suppliment with formula, and I prefered similac because it was easiest on ds stomach. Lots of others seem to make him gassy or spit up a lot.

I've used lactose-free ever since I started to supplement my son with them.

We used Nestle Good Start with my oldest, and now use the grocery store brand for my youngest. Older had a lot of gastro issues, but younger seems to have the stomach made of cast iron.

Baby's Only but I would only use an organic version unless there was a medical reason where my child couldn't.

Trust me, if you aren't fond of the way Baby's Only tastes (or smells) then you would get your stomach turned at the smell of other formulas. I think Baby's Only tastes and smells better b/c the naturally sweeten it with vanilla to taste more like breastmilk.

Most generics are made by this co:

http://www.pbmsites.com/

*hint hint* if you call the 800 number they will send you coupons for your store brand
We use this brand since you can go just about anywhere and get some formula made by this Co (they make bottle liners too)...they even make a RS type of formula(walmart has it under their brand).....used the same method with older DS too...it's really a good way to save $$.
